I think Rebecca is correct.
I haven't had any experience with any other AT&T phones besides the iPhone, so don't know how their center for consumers with disabilities is, but I can tell you that dealing with Code Factory presented some difficulties when I was with Verizon and had a motorola Q. Code factory were helpful, but they were in Spain, so we had issues with time differences and it was hard to get ahold of someone when I needed technical support.
Apple, on the other hand, have been great to deal with, in my experience. I own two macs and an iPhone, and have had excellent customer service and technical support when ever I call apple for assistance.
I can't say enough great things about apple, or the advantages of owning products which offer out of the box accessibility solutions.
Feel free to write me off list with any iPhone or mac related questions!

This significantly limits the phones you can choose from. If you were to purchase Mobile Speak or Mobile Magnifier from a distributor, you would have more phone options but would
