Another Rip-Off Situation

Talks, a software application which can be installed onto simbion phones, gives blind and partially sighted people ful access to the full functionality of the phone.

To buy Talks it costs £150. Not cheap but a reasonable cost I think.

However, even once the user has the full Talks licence, it costs us an additional £50 when we want to transfer it to a new phone.

About a month ago I purchased a Nokia 6290 phone which I haven’t got on with particularly well, just because I don’t much like the layout. So I’ve sold it and am buying an E51. I haven’t lost any money on the buying and selling of phones, but the double Talks transfer has cost me £100. And I have no choice.

About Mel Griffiths

I live and work in Nottingham, England and am blind. This blog is often centred around things that happen to me because of being blind. This is my space to write and sometimes people will disagree with what I write, but its the one place I have in which to be frank and honest. I also like to reflect on the funnier side of life from time to time.
