Choosing a Default Provider
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires all deaf and hard-of-hearing users to choose a default VRS provider. The choice is yours. By choosing Sorenson, you choose the VRS provider that offers the best products, features and services for deaf communication.
What will my default VRS provider offer?
When you select Sorenson as your default VRS provider, Sorenson will provide you with a local 10-digit number, Enhanced 911 service (E911) and the most advanced features available.
Remember the following when choosing a default VRS provider:
- You can receive a local 10-digit number from any provider.
- You can switch VRS providers at any time and keep your local number. This process is called “porting your number.”
- You can make and receive calls through any VRS provider, regardless of whom you have chosen as your default provider. This is called “dial-around” calling.
- You can use any videophone regardless of what VRS company you have chosen as your default provider.
