Hi Steve.

Did your friend even try putting the phones LCD under sunlight, or even artificial light directly?

I have thought about this though and it's a good warning.

Hi Barry,

Just be careful when doing that. A word of warning. I had a beta of Talks
crash on me once, and because the brightness was set to 0, a sighted
colleague could hardly see it. So in the end, I had to resort to resetting
the phone. I didn't care, as I have test phones, but it is worth seting it
at 4 or 5, rather than 0, otherwise you may all be blind at crunch time,
when Talks doesn't Talks.


All the best

As a small tip to increasing battery life on your mobile if you dont' need
to be able to see the screen.

Turn the brighteness level to 0

Hi,

I thought about it for the battery life as there was no screen. However, if

even the RNIB points you at Talks when you are looking at this phone, there
must be a reason!

Thanks for this, Andrew.  From what I seem to be getting from people's
feedback, people don't seem very keen on this phone and think an off the
shelf mobile with Talks is a better option.  That's what I'll probably end
up doing, but I just thought I'd get people's feedback on this particular
model.

Cheers,
Sandra.
