Yes you can do the three finger double tap or you can hold down the home key
and ask Siri to turn Vo back on or you can just triple click the home key if
you have that setup in settings. I highly recommend you do this setup triple
click home in settings!

Hello Sarahann:
 
To send a text from your computer to a cell phone, you will need to know the gateway address.  An easier way to determine a gateway address for any of the carriers is by visiting:
 
 
On the above-mentioned website, you supply the phone number of the individual you're trying to send text to and it will return the correct gateway address for both text and MMS.  Please note that this is only feasible if you reside in Canada or the United States! 
 
Hope this helps, good luck and all the very best.
 
Sincerely,
Olusegun

Hi Donna:

Duck Duck Go is a search engine similar to Google. Supposedly, one can use this search engine without sacrificing privacy. That's what they claim. I think it's an easy search engine to use and I think it's as good as Google. Apparently, they don't track your searches like Google does.

Re: Focus blue display

Pat Seed
 

Hi,
The little round button on the far right of the display, as well as the same on the left, will get the next line and previous line for you. Also, if you press either wheel on the left or right on the top of the display, it will tell you how much you are reading at one time. I find it easiest to have the display on (display panning) so that I can read every word easily.
Blessings and All the Very Best,
Pat

It is expensive, but the price is comparable to other popular Android

Hi all,

Olusegun, I'd much rather have a device running the previous build of
an
OS rather than the bleeding edge. I want a device which is going to
work, most of the time, is going to be reliable, is going to meet my
needs.

From what I've read about all these devices, it looks like all the
companies are moving toward updating via wifi. I think that once the
latest build of Android has been out for a while and there's a new
bleeding edge, we'll get upgraded.

I've listened to the podcasts, and if I put down any money at all, it
will be most probably on the B2G. I have a BrailleNote. I don't need
a
notetaker, but I do most definitely need a cell phone that is going to
be
controlled by me and not by hand gestures and not have an OS that makes
changing settings, adding contacts and so on a matter of fifteen to
twenty minutes' work. No, no thank you! If that B2G will have a phone
in it, I want that! I hate all this flicking and flacking and twsting
and tapping.
Phaw, it's ridiculous! I want to be able to add a contact in less than
a
minute. I want to be able to change settings or connect my device to
another via bluetooth in less than five minutes. My time is valuable,
and I don't want to waste it malarkifizing! The problem with most of
the
Apple and Android devices that are controlled by hand gestures is that
it
often takes repeated tries to accomplish a goal. Being able to see the
screen is helpful because you get instant gratification. VO is helpful
yes, but it still takes lots and lots and lots of time to accomplish
anything on an iPhone. Oh, and no, I don't have a month to spend in
constant contact with my iPhone in order to make it work for me in a
timeless and seamless manner.
I wont Braille, thank you very much.

Re: Podcast from Main menu

Olusegun -- Victory Associates LTD, Inc.
 

Pam, companies, as far as I know, are not particularly doing away with
contracts. What they can't do anymore is to have locked phones though
complete implementation remains a hit and miss. This is the only country I
know where phones are locked to specific carriers. I guess it goes back to
1983 and years before that when AT&T and the Bell boys were the only games
in town coast to coast, dry dock to dry dock! AT&T "began" dying in 1984
after MCI, now defunct, and Sprint sued it under the antitrust law aserting
their rights to compete.

If you get into a contract and obtain a phone from a carrier, it'll most
likely be locked; to get an unlocked one, the carrier wants you to pay full
price. I have heard that Verizon NO LONGER lock their phones, but I don't
do business with Verizon, as such, I can't verify this claim. Each of the
different carriers does have NO-CONTRACT service plans; depending on what
you're trying to accomplish, these NO-CONTRACT service plans may not be on
equal footing with contrct-type plans.

I've been to the AT&T store a few times trying to buy a phone outright; the
salesperson COULD NOT EVEN guarantee me an unlocked phone if I pay full
price upfront. This is one reason why I NEVER EVER buy directly from
service providers. I believe that if the FCC begins to slap the wrists of
carriers, they'll relent with regards to the phone locking business.

As I opined elsewhere, our country has perhaps the cheapest phone service in
the world; why not? Our ingenuity created it! However, because of the
phone locking nonsense, we are often behind when new technologies emerge in
the industry.

Lastly, because there are many more manufacturers producing phones for
Android OS, chances are that you'll find smartphones running Android for a
lot less; keep in mind though that Android is an open platform. Each
manufacturer does add some interesting and silly bells and whistles, just
like our coveted screen readers do. The Blackberry Priv is Rimm's attempt
to regain its position in the market place after having failed to keep up
with new trends when iOS and Android came for a visit and never left.

Sincerely,
Olusegun
