How does having the same ClearCaptions number on my home phone and mobile app work?

April 11, 2022

You can make calls as you normally would on all devices that share a ClearCaptions number, like your internet phone at home and your mobile iPhone® or iPad®. Call logs and voicemail will appear on all devices. However, caption transcripts are only saved on the device the call was answered on and contacts will need to be added to each device separately.  

If you have questions about ClearCaptions service, for home and mobile call use, contact us online or call 1-866-246-7850.

There is a cost for each minute of captions generated, paid from a federally administered fund.
