Also, if you are specifically interested in T-Mobile, contact them. Explain to them that you want to get a feature phone with full speech capability and buttons - all accessible to a blind person or person with limited vision. I think they have them. I talked to them during my search, but found that T-Mobile does not have good coverage in my area. I was very disappointed, because they have good plans. I'd have had to wait, since my Verizon contract wasn't out. I think they have great plans though, and they could be a resource to help you get the phone you want.

Bye for now,

Carolyn

You could always look into the Odin phone. It’s supposed to be completely blind accessible.

I think it runs on the T-Mobile network.

I have the information on the Haven, but that is an old phone you can’t go into a store and buy. I also don’t know if it works on TMobile. Pam.

There are phones you can buy from T Mobile that have buttons. I have one. I don't know how many of them are accessible, but mine is.



I am not recommending my phone, but if you want to hear a demonstration of my phone to get an idea of what features you might find and how they might function, you can download my demonstration. I did it for Accessible World.

There is another presentation by someone else in the same file but mine is there.

Hi! I may have to replace my cellphone. I am on TMobile. I do not want to get an iPhone or an android phone. Is there any phone I could get that has buttons and that would work with TMobile? A friend of mine said she went to a TMobile store, and all she could find were flat screen phones. I hope somebody has some ideas. Thanks. Pam.
