Please, Don't Hang Up.
People with hearing and speech disabilities use the phone like everyone else – to find out about a product, make an appointment, reach a teacher, call a parent with a birthday party invitation or simply to be neighborly.
- Have you ever made a call and had someone hang up on you?
- Do you want the Relay Oklahoma Service to educate those who do hang up on you?
Many disabled people find that businesses, organizations, and individuals they call through relay are unfamiliar with the relay service. As a result, when the Relay Operator announces the call “This is the Relay Oklahoma” – the first-time hearing person often hangs up. Although not intentional, the hearing person who is receiving a relay call for the first time often hangs up, thinking that a telemarketer is calling.
If you have experienced a hang-up when placing a relay call, you may go the Hang-up Incident form online to report.
Help Relay Oklahoma increase awareness and get the message out there about the “Please, Don’t Hang Up” campaign.
