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!

Now a great app!! Thanks!!


I originally gave the app a bad grade because there were many bugs. I really needed this service desperately. It was hard to get to the right person but I talked to the app designers via Fcc complaint and I am really grateful for their positive response. They asked me what I needed. (At the time I needed the phone book to be alphabetized so I didn't have to scroll through a 1000 names n numbers.) Then it was crashing when I put in the number. I used it the other day and had a minor problem and I saw they fixed it. I'm really pleased. It's a great app now and so far they are really addressing any thing that presents. Please know app people, I am so very grateful for this app and your working to make it better. I'm super close to giving you 5 stars. (((Hugs))) Keep up the great work!!
