Dear Monica, You might want to check out www.maxiaids.com They have a lot of choices and also a lot of stuff to wade through, but you might find what you want. Also, Grandma Cindy is correct. Your telephone company will probably direct you to a centralized number for your state that provides phones for hard of hearing. In terms of cell phones, you might call Cingular and ask for disabled services; I don't know what they have for hard of hearing, but it's worth a try. In fact, my husband Mike just told me that he emailed you their phone number. You might try a google search for Helen Keller International Foundation as I believe they have information and referral. Hope some of these thoughts will help you. Lori Castner----- Original Message ----- From: "Monica Willyard" <rhyami@xxxxxxxxx>

Hi. I'm in a bind and really need some help. I don't know where to turn to find good information, and any ideas or suggestions would be very welcome. Does anyone here know about landline phone, cell phone or pager systems for deaf or hard of hearing people? Our family is in urgent need of a solution because my dad's business depends very heavily on him being able to hear his cell phone ring and handle phone calls. He can no longer hear the phones ring at all, and the pager he has keeps resetting itself to beep instead of vibrate. We've lost several customers due to missed calls, and it's really hurting us financially. His hearing loss is accellerating now, and his hearing aids are no longer sufficient for his needs. If you have any ideas, links, or know any people who might be able to help me, you can email me at rhyami@xxxxxxxxx .
