Your fingers have just become obsolete--at least for dialing phones. The SCH-2000 voice-dialing digital cellular phone from Sprint PCS and Samsung allows you to access up to 20 stored numbers just by saying the name of the person you wish to call. Equipped with a built-in voice memo function for recording personal notes or reminders and a five-line LCD screen that displays text messages and caller ID information, the phone's vibrating ringer quietly alerts you to incoming calls, which you can conclude with a dramatic flick of the phone's active flip feature. Powered by a standard lithium ion battery, this 5.4-ounce phone provides up to two and a half hours of talk time.
