Makes your favorite headset compatible
One of my frustrations with the iPhone was the lack of plug in telephone headsets. This solves the problem. I am using it with a One of my frustrations with the iPhone was the lack of plug in telephone headsets. This solves the problem. I am using it with a noise cancelling Plantronics headset and am as happy as can be. Voice and sound quality are both better than with any Bluetooth unit and as good or better than holding the telephone up to your ear.
Note that the three-contact adapters sold at Radio Shack and other places don't work. I am not sure why, but you need to get this four-contact TTY plug for good voice quality. (see the photo and compare to the others to see what I am talking about). …

Works with Plantronics headset
I use this with a Plantronics headset and it works very well. Volume levels incoming are fine and no complaints on the outgoing v I use this with a Plantronics headset and it works very well. Volume levels incoming are fine and no complaints on the outgoing volume. Occasionally when removing it from the iPhone 3G it activates the iPod current song which is strange. I really like the convenience of using a corded headset sometimes. …

Hearing Aid compatible headsets work this this TTY adapter
For all you hearing impaired phone users out there that suffer when trying to navigate the newer cell phones and worry about compa For all you hearing impaired phone users out there that suffer when trying to navigate the newer cell phones and worry about compatibility with your existing hearing aid compatible telephone accessories. I wear two BTE digital hearing aids with T-coil switches for hearing aid use when on the phone. I often use my Hatis Freedom Mach II headset for my office, home and cell phone telephone use. (The Hatis headsets are great by the way, very strong induction signal and great clarity). Hatis headsets all have 2.5 mm headset jacks and must be adpated to work with the iphone 4S headset jack (special configuration of 3.5 mm jack). This TTY adapter does the trick and works very well as an adapter between my iphone 4S and my Hatis Mach II headsets. I also use it to connect my headsets when listening to recorded books on my ipod and/or iphone. …

Adapts Normal Cell/House Phone Headsets 2.5
This is the ONLY adapter that will allow you to use your regular cell phone wired hands free headsets with the iPhone. It also all This is the ONLY adapter that will allow you to use your regular cell phone wired hands free headsets with the iPhone. It also allows you to use your house phone wired headset with the iPhone. Those use the 2.5 mm pin, and this adapter plugs that into the 3.5 mm that the iPhone uses. But BEWARE, this is the ONLY adapter that will work in the iPhone jack. The ones they sell in Radio Shack look similar, but do NOT work, as they only have two sections on the pin that goes in the iPhone, not the three that are required. The same thing is true of the other adapters you find elsewhere, they just don't work in the iPhone. Save yourself the trouble and just buy this Apple adapter. It's a shame that Apple doesn't advertise this adapter. Apple calls it the TTY adapter, and it does work for TTY (it's a deaf person typing machine), but it is also the ONLY solution for using a wired handsfree headset with the iPhone, and Apple should TELL people that! …

I have found that the problem is not with square or trying to find an adapter. What I realized is th I have found that the problem is not with square or trying to find an adapter. What I realized is the fault lies with otterbox. They make the plastic guards which surround the headphone jack too tall to allow the square to plug in. So what I did was to take a razor sharp knife and shave a little off those plastic guards. This allowed the square to plug in and work perfectly and the rubber cover still completely closes on the case. I think otterbox should fix their product as I'm told people have had problems with their headphones as well due to the same issue. …

How does this equipment actually adapt an iPhone to the TTY's primary function of sending/receiving text in telephone medium?
- Asked by Kathleen T from Lane Cove
- Dec 13, 2009
No. A cell phone that is TTY compatible (like iPhone) must still plug into a TTY unit. All TTY uni No. A cell phone that is TTY compatible (like iPhone) must still plug into a TTY unit. All TTY units plug into a phone line, but some also plug into the 3.5mm jack of a cell phone. This adapter just allows the 3-ring TTY plug to work with the recessed 4-ring iPhone jack.
But with all the apps out there, there may be one for TTY emulation that would allow you to type directly from the iphone's keyboard to another TTY. After all, TTY isn't much more than than ancient IM-type communication with extremely low speed (45.5 Hz?). …
