Q&A: What is a good cell phone for a hard of hearing person who doesn’t use a hearing aid–with good voice quality?

Question by tinkeya: What is a good cell phone for a hard of hearing person who doesn’t use a hearing aid–with good voice quality?
We don’t yet have cell phones, but plan to get a family plan (self and husband) shortly. Husband is a bit hard of hearing, though doesn’t use a hearing aid, and has had trouble when borrowing other people’s cell phones due to very poor voice quality and volume. We want a very basic type of phone–no need for camera, internet, etc., and something that’s easy to handle (not too tiny). Plan/company recommendations would be helpful too.

My son had a baseball coach that was deaf, which my son is too, but anyway, he did a conference on some phones through verizon that were for hearing impaired. Although ya know if you husband was to get a hearing aid he could plug a cord right up to the aid from the phone and onlt hear the conversation.

    Don’t worry about the brand of phone, because all of the phones can be equipped with a volume controlled head set.

    Worry about coverage and clarity of signal. My best experience so far are with T-Mobile and Verizon, away from Cingular or Sprint PCS.

    I think both of those providers have great family plans, by the way and have good coverage in your area.
