Just dial 711 (or 800-735-2962 for English or 888-825-6570 for Spanish) on your TTY and a relay operator will answer with “Relay North Carolina”.
Type in the area code and telephone number you wish to call, and type “GA” (“Go Ahead”). The relay operator will dial the number and connect to the other party.
Type your message on the TTY. Type “GA” (Go Ahead) at end of each message. The “GA” indicates that it is the other party’s turn to respond.
The relay operator reads the message you typed aloud to the other party.
The other party listens, then speaks. When they say, “Go Ahead”, it is your turn to respond.
The relay operator types the other party’s voiced message to you.
To conclude the call, type “GA to SK” (“Stop Keying”) to indicate that you are ready to hang up.
