Default 7100g TTY Optus Australia

Please Login to Remove!

Hello ,
I have a 7100g and am on the Optus Network in Australia.
I am wondering how do I use the TTY function of the BlackBerry?
I have found where I can turn it on (I think) but how do I make the calls?
Any help on this would be great.
Many Thanks,

According to the handheld help section in Desktop Manager:

About TTY
You can use text telephone (TTY) to make calls to, and receive calls from, other TTY devices. If you connect your handheld to a TTY device, calls that you receive on your handheld are converted to text. --- displayed on the TTY device, not BB screen ---

Can I use a TTY device with my handheld?
Yes, if your service provider supports TTY devices. The TTY device must operate at 45.45 bps, and you must insert the TTY device connector into your handheld headset jack. If you use an RJ-11 connector, you must use an adapter to connect the TTY device to your handheld.

TTY is only available on some BlackBerry Wireless Handhelds.
Dumb I know! What's wrong with using the built-in keyboard?! Lazy programmers - It's discrimination, I tell ya!
