Hearing Aid Compatibility
As wireless carriers move from analog to digital services, accessibility for the deaf and hard of hearing is a concern. Digital technology means more features and improved efficiency—but some digital phones can cause interference for hearing aid users.

To make sure the deaf and hard of hearing can use digital wireless devices, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) updated the Hearing Aid Compatibility Act of 1988 ("HAC Act”), passing regulations to increase the number of hearing aid-compatible wireless devices.

Along with many others in the wireless industry, we strive to ensure accessibility for all individuals, including deaf and hard of hearing consumers.

Compatible Phones and Devices
We work closely with handset vendors to improve the user experience of customers who have hearing aids. Pursuant to FCC guidelines, the handsets listed below have been tested and rated for Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC). These HAC ratings, or "M-Ratings" and "T-Ratings," help hearing aid users find the best phone for their needs.

M-Ratings: Mobile phones rated M3 or M4 meet Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requirements and are likely to generate less interference to hearing devices that do not operate in telecoil mode. M4 is the better/higher of the two ratings.

T-Ratings: Mobile phones rated T3 or T4 meet FCC requirements and are likely to be more usable with a hearing device’s telecoil (“T Switch” or “Telephone Switch”). T4 is the better/higher of the two ratings. (Note that not all hearing devices have telecoils in them.)

All orders and handsets offered on this site are fulfilled and managed by Quality One Wireless, LLC.
