The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued an order outlining an interim plan for access to relay services at public payphones.

The order states that:


  • All local calls from TTY payphones are free of charge.


  • Toll calls can be billed through calling cards and prepaid cards.


  • TTY users who wish to use a coin TTY payphone can use Wisconsin Relay to assist in connecting calls. There are several ways to bill non-local calls: collect, third party, calling card or prepaid card.




711 or 800-947-3529

Wisconsin Relay will relay directory assistance (DA) calls between TTY users and the Local Exchange Carrier (LEC) DA operator. Once the caller makes the request, the CA will contact the appropriate LEC DA operator. After obtaining the number, the caller may choose to place the call through Wisconsin Relay or dial it directly TTY to TTY.




711 or 800-947-3529

TTY users can request Wisconsin Relay to retrieve messages from their voice answering machines or voicemail. To request answering machine retrieval, type "AMR" with instructions or password and then "GA." The CA will type, "PLS PLCE YOUR HANDSET NEXT TO YOUR ANS MACHINE AND TURN ON GA." Place your handset on the speaker part of the answering machine until all messages have been retrieved. Then place the handset back on the TTY and type "GA." The CA will type your messages.




In case of emergency, TTY users should call 9-1-1 directly. Calling 9-1-1 directly can save valuable time in urgent situations.

FEDERAL LAW PROHIBITS ANYONE BUT REGISTERED USERS WITH HEARING LOSS FROM USING INTERNET PROTOCOL (IP) CAPTIONED TELEPHONES WITH THE CAPTIONS TURNED ON. IP Captioned Telephone Service may use a live operator. The operator generates captions of what the other party to the call says. These captions are then sent to your phone. There is a cost for each minute of captions generated, paid from a federally administered fund. No cost is passed on to the CapTel user for using the service.
