Frontier Bundles is offering the $1,000 prize and other items to someone who can make it seven days using the phone.

The company is looking for smartphone addicts, social media experts, tech geeks and more. If you're chosen, you'll have to use the flip phone for a week and log the experience. They will have you track how long it takes to do basic tasks like texting and checking email, how many times you Google something, hours you slept, productivity changes and more.

On top of the $1,000, the company said you'll get a boredom buster swag back that includes:
- An actual, physical map
- A phone pocketbook for numbers
- A notepad and pen
- 90s CDs

To apply, you have to fill out a form on their website and explain in about 200 words why you'd be perfect for the job.
