I don't even want to bother with text messaging. I just want a phone with
real buttons, not some touch screen, and with the ability to set my own ring
tones and voice dial someone without having to pay for a service. And I want
to be able to edit anything on the phone using the computer where I have a
trustworthy screen reader.
The reason why I'm thinking about this is that my phone is starting to give
me difficulties, and my charger is on its last legs. I don't have a home
phone, so this is my only voice lifeline to the outside world.
