Problems with TTY
This problem called garbling may be caused by call-waiting tones, loud background noise, low power on the TTY, inclement weather, cracked acoustic couplers, automated voice messages transmitted by the TTY, line static, improper TTY settings, and TTY shifting between letters and numbers.
To fix it, try typing AAA111 or hitting the space bar. This may clear the garbling. If you are using Turbo Code, change setting to Baudot. If using acoustic coupling, ensure that the handset is sitting securely in the acoustic cups. If this does not work, hang up and redial as a last resort. If garbling persists, please contact us.
