The TTY adapter is intended to enable the use of aids for the hearing impaired. It is not, as SOme might assume, a simple 3.5 mm male/female adapter to allow the use of cables with bulky plugs. However, it might be helpful if Apple were to make this a little clearer in the item's description. It would also be helpful if Apple were to actually make a 3.5 mm male/female adapter like the one that I thought I was buying! Full marks, however, for producing this useful piece of equipment, even if it is of no use to me.

      Makes a corded headset work with iPhone

      Apple does not mention it, but this little adapter makes a standard corded phone headset with a 2.5 mm jack work with the iPhone 3G. I wear hearing aids, so ca Apple does not mention it, but this little adapter makes a standard corded phone headset with a 2.5 mm jack work with the iPhone 3G. I wear hearing aids, so can't use an in the ear or over the ear Bluetooth. But now I can use my corded Panasonic phone headset with my iPhone! Yes!

      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 noise cancelling Plantronics h 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).

      Size correction

      Apple store does not provide clear description of size. This TTY Adapter has a 2.5 mm jack on one end and a 3.5 mm plug on the other side. I am looking at one Apple store does not provide clear description of size. This TTY Adapter has a 2.5 mm jack on one end and a 3.5 mm plug on the other side. I am looking at one in front of me. Some who are trying to connect standard headphones to a cordless phone handset or office phone will be looking, instead, for an adapter which has a 3.5 mm jack on one end and a 2.5 mm plug on the other side. I was one of those people. Returned the product to Apple retail store.

      Disappointed

      I purchased this adapter in hope that it would allow me to use a corded headset with a boom microphone for my business. I have to manipulate the adapter by pres I purchased this adapter in hope that it would allow me to use a corded headset with a boom microphone for my business. I have to manipulate the adapter by pressing in from the top firmly to hear. Once I release the pressure, I hear nothing. Apple do not have any other headsets with a boom mic, only ear bud or Bluetooth devices. If some could offer a solution or suggestion, I would greatly appreciate it.

      This is NOT a technical flaw

With a TTY, the conversation is typed rather than spoken and direct communication is possible with anyone who has a similar device. Calls placed to or from a non-TTY user can be placed through the Telecommunications Relay Service allowing the user to "talk"
