No.


Re:Got my new cell phone.



Is the internet accessible?


Re:Got my new cell phone.



My phone has full internet capabilities.


Re:Got my new cell phone.



I will say that the Haven is a very basic phone and it has it's own built in screen reader. It has no internet features.


Re:Got my new cell phone.



OK, does this screen reader come with the phone, or would I have to buy it? And, how do you turn the screen reader on? And, how much does this Samsung Haven cost? Hopefully, I might be able to get it someday, LOL. And, is it an actual screen reader, or just some text message reader or something like that, in other words, can it read apps, E-mail, chat and all the other things the phone might have?

Re:Got my new cell phone.



Yes.


Re:Got my new cell phone.



Yeah it's still the same.


Re:Got my new cell phone.



you have own eventually. I think the wait is worth it so that you can find a better phone than us in the feauture.


Re:Got my new cell phone.



Oh! You are blessed to have that kind of phone. How I wish I could have a new phone too this Christmas. I'm having this 33-10 of Nokia and having a hard time to read messages on it. I always look for someone to read my messages. No privacy! I wish I could have one that can have a screen reader too so I won't need someone to read my messes for me. Well as poor as I am, I don't know how will I afford to buy a new one that's why it's really a wish.


Re:Got my new cell phone.



I got a new phone the other day. it is called the Octane, the replacement for the Envy3 from Verizon. Is your number still the same?


Re:Got my new cell phone.



That sounds cool! I want to buy a cel phone.


Re:Got my new cell phone.



If i recall, it's called UPD speech or something like that. It reads a lot of stuff. So, if your looking for an accessible cell phone, get yourself a Samsung Haven! From Verizon Wireless.


Re:Got my new cell phone.



Lucky!!!!


Re:Got my new cell phone.



what's the screen reader called?


Re:Got my new cell phone.



I really like that phone! And, you can go through character by character by forwarding the message and then going through the message. You don't actually forward it, but act as if you will, go into the body of the text and you can check the spelling or a number or whatever. Pretty neat! I hope the rest follow their example.

You should tell them more about it. Good stuff!

Sincerely,
