I use the common flip phone with camera. I would love to use one with the (qwerty) keyboard. But can't, because i have had strokes. So I can't see the keys. They are too small for my eyes. And the screen is, too. So I have to stick with the basic phone :) and :( i do a lot of texting. So I use my phone a lot. I love my boost mobile as well. I love the fact I have the spend down play as well.
I'm 46 years old, and my age has nothing to do with my eyesight. It's the strokes that did it to me. So if Boost Mobile was ever to come out with a more compatible phone for the handicapped without it being too gaudy, that would be great! Bigger keys. Bigger screen. Hint, hint. And lower prices! Or a touch screen for the handicapped! Again at lower prices!
Thanks for your comments. Boost does have a couple of touchscreens available, but I don't know if you can adjust the size of the virtual keys on them. There are probably apps on the iPhone that do that. You can also get an Android touchscreen phone and install something like the Big Buttons app. You can get the deluxe version for $3 to get word prediction and voice-to-text. The Android phones do cost a bit more.
Other prepaid companies that offer Android phones, of course.
