See it always seem that my older siblings get more cars or money. But why not take the time and buy me what I've been asking for. They don't understand that it can help me in my teenage life. (For example textin my friends.) My mom don't want a contract with Verizon. So she's taking the hard way out. Which buying the phone for its regular price. Plus however much they charge for activation, the plan, and to check credit.
I jus hope and pray to God that they want let me down, and buy me that phone
Anyone have any comments or advices. Thank u

I have the Samsung Restore from Spint and that talks. And you don't have to sign a contract.

Hi
I've used a phone with moble speak, voice over, and some other screen reader. I forgot to ask my friend what it's called though. In answer to the question about jaws being to expensive you can get a free screen reader that's called system access to go. If you want to pay like 500 bucks I think that's how much it costs you can join the system access moble network which has it's own e-mail program, you can make your own personal website, blog, and newspaper on it and show it to other samnet users. It's Awesome! The school district that I'm in has a membership with serotek which is the name of the company that provides system access. If you want to try it out just go to www.satogo.com and you'll find out all you need. Sorry I'm kinda a tek nerd so my posts on technology are super long.
