Hi Chip - please excuse my ignorance, or lack or research but I have some
questions:  I believe I am a member of this Tabi list but do not know how to
access the list and start a new thread.  Maybe the thread is not appropriate
or has already been covered or you could refer me to other pertinent
information.  I frequently hear the Sansung commercial that I think features
a visually impaired woman and her dog, and a phone that fantastically meets
her needs for voice emails, etc.  I will be in the market for a new
cellphone and would like to know what is available for the needs of the
visually impaired.  I currently use Verizon and have not had problems but
could change providers if necessary.  Thanks for any help you may give me.
Hope  all is well with you.  Norine

I haven't done it yet; do you still have to pay for and download an
authorization token before you can listen to a book?

thanks.
