Buggy; needs sound support.


This is still buggy. When I tried to answer a call from a potential employer, I was unable to type anything and had to end the call.

I wish we could have sound alerts. I recently contacted Support and inquired about sound alerts. The Support person said that this app is geared towards deaf people and it doesn’t need sound alerts. That’s patently false. This service is also geared towards mute people; it says so right in the description and on the Web site. I often miss important phone calls because I don’t hear the phone. Deafness is not binary; it is a range. I would appreciate sound support so I can be alerted to incoming calls. I may have to find another provider if this need is not met.

Can’t see who called or even answer the calls


Every time I receive a call I can’t call back nor see who has been calling me. The nbr flashes but for a moment. I loved it in the past. It now I’m not so sure. I’m deaf blind and text relay benefits me greatly. Please fix this. I don’t want to have to use video relay!

Apparently you can't forward your number!


I need this app because I'm losing the use of my voice.

I set my phone to forward calls to my relay number.

Then I get a text from my grandfather saying he keeps getting an operator that says it's an invalid number.

I call customer service and they said that forwarding isn't supposed to work. I'm ditching this for Apple's built in TTY service (if I can get it to work).

What's the point of having a relay number if you can't forward your calls to it?!

I guess Sprint's relay service is just a shoddy as their cell service!
