Thread: Smart phones for C5 quads

    Smart phones for C5 quads

    Hi, all - Did a search, but didn't come up with exactly what I was looking for.

    Matt has decided he'd like to investigate a smart phone; right now he has a land line, plus his recorder, and he'd like to try and consolidate.

    Problem is, he's got no fingers. He's gotten quite adept at using his tongue for his phone/recorder, but am wondering if there are any quads out there who are able to use the touch phones with their fingers?

    Did find some neat topics about aps and attaching the phone.

    Tx, all!

    Hello MarmaLady,

    I have some finger usage. I have a Droid X. If I instigate a call, I have to press either of two buttons. After that, it is all screen touch. For me, this phone is much easier than the LG's I had been using.

    Good luck.

    is he flat-handed or do his fingers curl? I have a LG that is a touch/button combo and I type/touch using my pinky knuckle.

    The iPhone has been a blessing for me.

    I use an iPhone along with voice dialing all the time. Can manage to call with a knuckle, or even an elbow if need be, but usually use my one semi-functional finger.

    His fingers curl, and he's got zero 'strength' in them. Hubby has an I-touch, and Matt can't put enough pressure on the 'on' button to turn it on. Once it's on, he is able to use his fingers to do a lot of the functions, though.

    the iphone button is big and round, so you can even hit it with your elbow or chin. it is concave though, but there is a case you can buy (switcheasy colors) that includes a raised covering for the button. im not sure how raised it makes the button, but maybe you could operate it by pressing the phone flat upside down on the table. or you could build up the raised button by sticking something under the covering.
