And so we go! Here's my weird accessible cell phone list!
We all know that Verizon's plans are so steep and so wallet snatching that even my credit card said “to hell with their expensive plans!” but for those who can actually afford everything, meaning text, talk, and web, monthly, then thank god! This is the most accessible cell carrier out there, and will forever be in my book.
So who gets the top pick in the most accessible cell phone?
For the tech geeks… the iPhone 4 with data plans. (Very expensive though.)

TALKS for Verizon Wireless is currently only compatible with the HTC Ozone and Motorola Q9C; only the HTC Ozone can be ordered on verizonwireless.com. The device will arrive with the software already loaded and ready to use out of the box.
Note: If you currently have a HTC Ozone (without TALKS) and would like to purchase TALKS for Verizon Wireless software, there's a charge of $99.99 that will be added to your account. To add the software directly, call *611 from your device for further instructions.

Unfortunately, AT&T has no accessible cell phones right out of the box except for the I Phone, which is quite expensive, ranging from a whopping $354 to $576.

They have a few cell phones that work with mobile speak. See below.
These phones are only accessible by the mobile speak software. Below will be the list of phones that support the software.
HTC HD2, (touch screen)
The best non geek phone that's sort accessible, actually it's only a short stint, is the LG rumor 2. The things that this phone does not have in terms of accessibility are:
