AT&T TAP messaging

AT&T on Tuesday unveiled details for its Text Accessibility Plan for disabled iPhone 3G customers, offering unlimited text messaging, web browsing, and email access for $50 per month. TAP is designed to allow users to communicate through the device's touchscreen interface, with the option of pay-per-use voice at 40 per minute. Interested users must apply through a special form, which is currently available from AT&T's website.

Disabled corporate customers are also eligible for the plan, with access to Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, and the above-mentioned features, for $65.

"We are thrilled to extend our Text Accessibility Plans to iPhone 3G customers so they can truly experience all of the speed and functionality of this powerful new device," said Susan Mazrui, Federal Regulatory Director at AT&T. "With TAP for iPhone 3G, customers can use the intuitive Multi-Touch touch screen to tap out their communications and stay connected while on the go."

    DISABLED?

    From what I've been reading, there are a lot of iPhones that are disabled. Seems like nothing works right.

    Be More Specific

    The writer of this news piece should have been more precise in indicating that it is for DISABLED customers who are hard of hearing or have speech/voice problems - thus a plan that is based on data and text messages. The program is intended for them, not for iPhones that are disabled...
