    Hello anyone that will listen:

    We (meaning the elder sector or seniors as we're called) are a very fast growing population to say the least. There is (3) Cell Phone issues that the MFG's need to address: We could care less how large it is.

    1) Larger screens

    2) Larger fonts

    3) Louder ring tones

    and we could throw a forth one in there for ALL:

    4) A strong signal

    Regards
    C

    Large screens and large fonts seem like a no brainer, but the trend is small and will remain so.

    What to do? Sprint's phones all use Voice Command; which enables you to have emails read to you from the phone, Reply to email by voice, have info read to you while surfing the web on your phone, search for a phone # in your directory by voice and dial by voice.

    These features eliminate a lot of eyeball to screen contact , also eliminating a lot of keypad input (you forgot to mention small buttons are a pain,too). Hands free email, web and directory/dialing is very convenient and a great safety feature too if you can't resist doing these things while you are driving!

    Voice Command is only a $5/mo add on and can be shared with as many as 5 phones for the one $5/mo charge if they are all on a shared minute plan.

    (VC also stores your phone book on the web where it is easily editable from your PC and when you trade in your phone for a different model your phone book transfers easily without re-inputting it.)

    If you have Voice Command on your plan, you should be able to go to Sprintpcs.com and log into My PCS with your PCS # and password to edit your phone book.
