Find wireless phones with TTY compatibility or built-in RTT

Have a hearing or speech disability? You can still stay in touch on the go with wireless phones that work with TTY or have built-in real-time text (RTT).

About our TTY-compatible wireless phones

When you and another person have teletypewriter (TTY) devices, you can communicate visually using one- or two-line electronic displays that work with TTY-compatible wireless phones.

A TTY-compatible wireless phone has a 2.5-millimeter port for the audio jack connector on the TTY device.
