My Phone.

Hi everyone. I got a new Samsung Restore from Sprint. I can now text because my phone reads messages to me.
(phone number removed, please try not to post your phone number or email address. Thank you so much for your help!)

Re:My Phone.



Cool.


Re:My Phone.




Awesome you guys. I think this is so cool that we all have accesible phones that let us text together, that is so great.


Re:My Phone.



Yeah it is. But nobody texts me that often.


Re:My Phone.



Well everyone, I use a samsung Sway for Verizon. It has talking menues, but it uses a prerecorded voice, so its not all accessible, especially the stuff like the world clock and all that. It reads text messages, but doesn't read what I write, so I try to not text, as I make 1000 mistakes in one sentance, :-)


Re:My Phone.



I like my phone. It's cool, it lets me text and it reads what I'm typing. And it reads what I erase when I make a mistake.


Re:My Phone.



My phone reds text messages. It doesn't read what I type, erase or anything, I'm just goot at texting because I have a full keyboard on my phone.


Re:My Phone.



Gosh! You cats... Um... People are so lucky!!


Re:My Phone.



Yeah whatever.


Re:My Phone.



Hey, cool
I want this phone from Verizon called Samsung Haven. I'm going to try to get that. I jus want it for texting. Or does anyone have another type of phone service or phone I should try.


Re:My Phone.



Haven is the most accessible non-smart phone that you can buy right from the store (off the shelf) without additional software.

The iPhone comes out on Verizon in February.

Have a great day!

Re:My Phone.



Hey everyone! You're talking about one of my favorite subjects, phones. lol. I have an LG Ally for Verizon. It is an Android phone, but it has TalkBack in the accessibility settings so it can read everything I do on it, even texts. But I downloaded Handcent and can make the font bigger. :-)


Re: My Phone.



Awesome!
