My mom is trying out cricket with a Samsung - we're working at it. One area that is tripping her (and me up) is checking voice mail. In order to check voice mail we must see and punch the buttons, which would be much easier if we had the speaker phone activated. However, we can't seem to turn the speaker on until we have actually placed the call to voice mail and then we've missed part of the voice mail directions. Is there a way to turn the speaker on initially? Is there a phone that would allow the speaker on initially that will work with cricket.

I know there are phones designed for senior citizens, but they seem fairly expensive and have low minutes. Are there any phones for senior citizens that work on the Cricket network?

Thanks.
