[DEAF411] – Just as hearing people have many phone models, calling plans and options to choose from, deaf users also have many options when choosing wireless devices, also known as pagers, and calling plans that are deaf-friendly. Deaf users may qualify for a free wireless device with the help of a rebate, special offer or purchase one at a low cost.
