HAVE EACH PHONE MADE CARRY A BEACON TYPE LIGHT THAT IS A VERY BRIGHT COLOUR. VIBRATION OR RINGING DOESN'T ALERT HARD OF HEARING PEOPLE WHEN THEY'RE NOT CARRING THE PHONE.

Hi Dawn, that is a great idea for the Deaf and hearing impaired :)

I am not sure if Koodo will be carrying that, since it is rather specialized (as you mentioned) but wouldn't there be any third party add-ons to do just that? I remember that years ago, for my "dumb" phone, I had a little external gadget that had a LED light up when it sensed the phone ringing... did you try to search eBay?

Is it bad that when I first saw this thread I though it was about a WHOLE other topic?

I was worried about the context myself

Haha, my dog's collar could light up when I get a text. I doubt that will let me bring my dog into the mall as a helper animal :) ... Especially if I'm going to the food court.

That's great, I hadn't even thought of that...text your animal to find them in the dark.

Great application.
