Well, having someone sighted won't help you in this case. While loadstone 
does the search it doesn't say anything about it. I'd do the last_position 
file edit I suggested earlier, once you get into the database then the 
response time should be within a couple seconds. I don't know of any better 
phones at this time but since things change you'd have to look around to be 
sure. Processing speed and the amount of internal phone memory are things to 
look for. The more of both the better.
