Re: For everyone who can't read the Phone Book!

Glenna,
Verizon wireless isn't a land line phone company.  That's a different 
situation, and differs from provider to provider.  But Verizon also offers 
free 411 to a blind customer, requesting proof of blindness be sent in along 
with the application form.  Call customer service again and ask about this. 
They will send you the application.  I should have mentioned that in my last 
message where I said that the 800 number was necessary for free information 
on a cell phone.  It isn't.  Sorry about that.
