TTY mode help
I bought a Curve 8320 with OS ver. 188.8.131.52. I'm trying to activate the TTY mode and I can't find this option anywhere. In Phone - Menu - Options it shows the following list:
FDN Phone List
Hearing Aid Mode
After an upgrade to 184.108.40.206 - still no TTY mode.
Can anyone give me an advice how to add/activate this option?
Wouldn't that be the Hearing Aid Mode?
No, the Hearing Aid changes from Normal to Telecoil in order to use the phone with telecoil mode of a hearing aid.
TTY mode is for connecting the phone to a compatible TTY device. This device displays what another people are speaking.

I would connect your device to the Desktop Manager and click on the Application Loader. Look through the list of applications.

Hope this helps.
Thanks for the advice. I already did this. I tried with DM 4.3 first then with DM 4.5 and both don't display this option on program list. It may be included in "Phone".
I'm thinking that, maybe, only a specific OS version has this option included and I don't know which one (I tried 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 without success).
I'm sorry this has turned into such an issue for you. I'm pretty sure I saw the program in the last upgrade I did (.69), however I am not at liberty to check at this moment.
Where did you see the program: on your phone or on the Application Loader list ?
I see you have an 8310; maybe its application list is not identical with 8320.
I have the 8800 with 4.5 device software and it is listed in the device application selection in Desktop Mnager. All you have to do is check it.
On the home screen, open the phone application.
Press the menu key and click on options.
The phone option screen appears.
Click TTY option and then the TTY option screen appears.
Change the TTY mode to yes and save.
I think what he's saying is that the TTY application isn't on his device, nor is it in the list of applications in Desktop Manager. It's got to be there, though. I uninstalled it from my device, but each time I've upgraded, I've noticed it in the list of applications.

It's strange that it doesn't show on the Loader application list. Maybe the 8320 isn't compatible with TTY mode.
Now, I have to be sure that someone with Curve 8320 has the TTY mode.
