Maybe...I've tried on occasion almost immediately and it was already "in
the system" and wouldn't allow it. On an item w/ delayed delivery date,
probably. Just thought I'd mention it doesn't always let you even if
you try right after the submission.
When you wrote that you hit "send" too fast, I thought you meant you
ordered the stuff w/o meaning to. DUH! Now I know you meant in
reference to the newsgroup. anyway, now you have a phone number for
Amazon that they don't give out easily.

Oh, boy, I smell the shark-bait now. I bet if you have a lawyer write them a
letter mentioning the ADA, they'll change their policy in a big hurry. What a
bunch of jerks.
I have a friend who's deaf, and I've used a relay service dozens of times to
talk to him. It's no big deal - can't imagine what their problem is, other
than massive ignorance. Maybe I'll prefer to buy from their competitors next
time I need bits or blades. No reason for them to go out of their way to make
life hard for you.

Nobody ever left footprints in the sands of time by sitting on his butt.
And who wants to leave buttprints in the sands of time?
I'll betcha ya *not*. <grin>
See the other messages about the _fraud_ being perpetrated via that service.
It's a good service, for the hearing impaired. but many businesses can make
a _very_real_ case for not accepting such calls to their _order_ line.
The 'deal', as you put it, is "*frequent*, massive, fraud" attempts. The
criminals have discovered that the call through the 'relay' service leaves
*NO* tracks back to them. The company gets the _relay's_ Caller-ID (or ANI)
info, not the fraudster's.
See the other postings in the thread for more info.
Then why would you want to do business with them? If that is their
attitude, use other brands. A relay call takes but a few seconds more than
www.infinitytools.com or www.routerbits.com or many other good brands
