  • 711 for Telecommunications Relay Service
    The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has adopted use of the 711 dialing code for access to Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS). TRS permits persons with a hearing or speech disability to use the telephone system via a text telephone (TTY) or other device to call persons with or without such disabilities. If you want to call someone using TRS, use your TTY or dial 711 on your telephone, and you will automatically be connected to a TRS operator. If you're a TRS user traveling out of state and want to make a call, there is no longer a need to learn the state's TRS provider's telephone number. Just dial 711. It's fast, functional and free.
