I'd like to weigh in on this phone accessibility thing if I may. I have been
debating about exchanging the cell phone I have now for an accessible phone.
My voicemail indicator keeps going off when I switch on my phone, but when I
check my voicemail there's no message. I know this isn't a fluke with the
phone because people have actually been able to leave me voice messages
before. I am able to retrieve voicemail messages because my father showed me
how when I first got this phone. Whenever I have my roommate or one of my
neighbors look at the phone's display, they just see a bunch of random phone
numbers as text messages. At least a couple of these are numbers which I
recognize, and I keep trying to tell these people nicely to please stop
sending me text messages since my phone doesn't talk. The odd thing, i
suppose, is that the majority of these people are blind themselves. I think
the drawback to getting a new phone, however, is that I've only had this one
for a little over a year and I don't think my plan has expired yet. Can I
change my cell phone number? I've never heard of anyone doing that while
using the same cell phone. I must say though, that these accessibility
options do look very promising. This is something which I'm discussing with
my folks and a team of people who had been helping me to plan my future

Now they're doing something that makes me smile. It's about time that sort
of thing starts happening for the Blind community. Does anyone know anything
about the size of this phone? What other phone models is it comparable to?
How does this phone look to a sighted person? I realize that last one isn't
terribly important, but it would be nice if it didn't look like a rellick
from the 1980s or something like that. I would like to be confident that the
phone looks pleasing to the eye.
