    TTY support is all well and good, but I should mention that text-based relay services are available, including Sprint Relay. For me, I'd like to get Nexus S from Sprint Relay, but because of my lack of fluency of American Sign Language that Sprint uses to contact over the videophone to confirm an order, I'm afraid I cannot get a data plan without a voice plan even though I'm hearing impaired and I cannot stand the sound quality of cell phones.
