Privacy concerns

To what extent does the device "phone home" and to whom?  I don't want something that spies on me and reports back to Google or anyone else.

 I don't have the answer to this question, I am looking at this phone because I would like a feature phone that i can use as a 4g hotspot to connect my laptop if I am away or my daughters tablet, but I don't want any Google software on the phone - if I did I would get one of the Android phones. I read Google Assistant is installed and I hope it can be removed.

Good point. I don't know how much it can be configured, but AFAIK KaiOS is independent of Google so Google Assistant won't be as integrated as it is on Android phones. I would suggest researching how KaiOS is for privacy with other phones but AFAIK the 8110 is the first KaiOS phone with Google Assistant.
