LIGHTING UP FOR SPECIAL PEOPLE


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.

I would reply, but I don't read all caps.

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

Ackkkk I'm sorry Dennis 😃 I guess I was just being Old-fashioned 😃 SURE you boys can wear it, just choose a nice Manly color 🙂
hmmm Phone Glasses, Connected Bracelets, and now a shoe phone: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-21443206 Oh wait, Koodo said it wasn't planning on it: http://community.koodomobile.com/koodo/topics/what_if_you_made_phones_that_were_also_shoes PS Dennis, I think the bracelet could be for male, female or a be a neat toy for the dog

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.
