Unlike in the past, the deaf and hard of hearing now have many options with cell phones to conveniently and effectively cater to their specific needs. This new FAQ article is in response to a question just submitted by an About.com cell phones reader:
What are the the current cell phone/smartphone options and features available for the deaf community? Is there a particular model that is better than others?
When the conversation of the deaf and hard-of-hearing community comes up in relation to cell phones, cell phone texting invariably is the answer.

Here’s a new guide with the cell phones, features and companies I recommend for the deaf and hearing impaired.

Can someone give me an idea whether or not I should go for a smart phone or just use a more stylish phone and wait for some better technology? I am on the Sprint network, and was referred to http://www.sanyowireless.com , but I’m not seeing any options that look like smart phones. I don’t need an MP3 player or a camera, I’d rather have a phone that is lighter and easier to carry. Any recommendations would be welcome.
