Simon Buckingham
CEO at Nonvoice Agency


Simon built the Ringtones. com mobile media service into a global company with a dozen worldwide subsidiaries. He completed an IPO and then sold the company to Liberty Media, a deal which led him to move from the U.K. to the U.S..

Before Ringtones. com, Simon started his career at Vodafone in 1991 where he product managed the launch of text messaging (SMS) and created the Vodafone business partners program for developers.

Throughout his career, Simon has developed deep expertise in product launches and marketing and international business relations and partnerships.

Nonvoice is on a mission to help the world's most innovative AR and 5G app developers succeed through its Metaverse (Innovation as a Service) hosted consumer 5G AR portal, Agency and Ventures.

Simon shares this expertise with app developers who want to fund, develop deploy and distribute world leading 5G and Augmented Reality (AR) enterprise and consumer apps and platforms.

Simon believes that 5G needs innovative new consumer use cases to surprise and delight consumers and encourage the adoption of 5G devices and data plans. To answer this call, Nonvoice has integrated and aggregated around 15 consumer apps and experiences for the launch of the Nonvoice Metaverse across AR games and experiences, education, NFT digital collectibles and sports. These innovative services can be bundled together in an all you eat subscription or given away as a marketing promotion. New titles are added on a monthly basis. Nonvoice has partnered with mobile telcos worldwide to launch the Metaverse service.

Simon believes that Nonvoice Alive NFT (Non Fungible Tokens) and Augmented Reality (AR) games and experiences are the 'new ringtones' in that they bring phone to life and enable new expressions of individuality and creativity and digital downloads in the 5G world.
