It’s a snap!
Just dial 711 (or 800-366-6888) on your text telephone/teletypewriter (TTY) or VCO phone and the Communications Assistant will answer, “Relay North Dakota”.
Type in the area code and telephone number you wish to call and type “GA” (Go Ahead). The Communications Assistant will dial the number and connect to the other party.
Type your message on your TTY or VCO phone to the Communications Assistant. Remember to type “GA” (Go Ahead) at the end of each message. The “GA” indicates that it is the other party’s turn to respond.
The Communications Assistant reads your typed message aloud to the other party.
The other party listens and speaks directly to you. The other party says “Go Ahead” to indicate that it is your turn to respond.
