New Special Needs Cell Phone
A new cell phone for people with disabilities has joined the line up of special needs phones. Like the Jitterbug, the Clarity Life is simplified, with large and clear buttons and text and is amplified for those with hearing loss (I might be getting my dad one of these for Christmas, I am sick of being told I am mumbling when the only time it happens is talking to him.) with a strong vibration and strobe effects as alternative alerting methods.
Unlike the Jitterbug the Clarity Life is unlocked, meaning you can use it with a SIM card from any company (i.e. AT&T or T-Mobile, not Verizon though). There aren't any numbers on the keypad though, the phone book must be pre-programmed and then you go through the address book with the arrow keys.
The Clarity runs for just under $300.00.
