    TTY is used by deaf people to communicate via phone.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ The more common name is Telecommunications Device for the Deaf, or TDD.

    The TTY option, lets someone hookup a TTY device in which they can dial out from that for a call. So unless you have a TTY device to hookup and use (which you'd prolly be deaf then) it really isnt anything you will use/need.

    I am deaf but I never use TTY on Blackberry, it will charge to ur voice plan if u try to use it to hook up TTY. So I use phone calls thru tty from 3rd party application that work thru data on AIM. It works great, and dont get any bill.

    TTY is a short form of several things:
    Teletypewriter or Teletype, a typewriter with an electronic communication channel
