I did check out the Maxi Aids site and was shocked at the price for this

damned accessible program. Of course it seems only to be for certain 
phones. I wouldn't consider spending $249 for software that the flippin'

phone manufacturer should install if nothing else upon request or have 
the provider of the service do it. Hell you can download ring tones and 
crap to the phone so the software should be easily downoaded when you 
get the contract and should be paid for by the provide. My thoughts only

of course.
Paying a little something is more reasonable than $249 for
