Kenny, you make an excellent point. Because the screen readers that have been developed for phones work on different kinds of phones and because those phones are usable by persons who are blind as well as people who can see, my guess is that the screen readers will be around a lot longer than a phone designed primarily for people who are blind. It would seem to me that the number of people who purchase the screen readers would be more substantial than those who purchase a phone used by people who are blind because screen reader users have a choice among some of the better known phones on the market. Just my opinion based on my knowledge of scotch.

If your new contract with Cingular means you got an accessable phone, then I wouldn't consider it a waste. I'm already a T-mobile customer, so I can't get any discount on any accessable phone. I ended up buyng a Nokia 6670 and Mobilespeak. The combo only cost $535, while a 22C would have cost me $499. A phone running a screen reader is much more powerful than the 22c.
