What is the difference between the CapTel 800 and the CapTel 800i?
There are two main differences:
CapTel 800i is for people with high-speed Internet access / CapTel 800 is for people who do not have high-speed Internet access.
With CapTel 800i, people call your phone number directly and you get captions. / With CapTel 800, callers need to dial the captioning service first and enter your phone number in order for you to get captions*.
Apart from the differences listed above, the two phones are nearly identical. They look the same and have most of the same features.
* If you use CapTel 800 in 2-Line mode (optional), people can call your number directly, they do not have to dial the service first. Learn more.
