Captioned Telephone Without Internet: CapTel 840 PROMO CODE: Crystal

hey guys its crystal i promised i would tell you about the only caption phone that’s available that does not require internet and this phone costs $75 you don’t pay for anything after that and and if you need to get ahold of one just let me know i can i can help you it works just like any of the other caption phones made by captel they are the creators of the phone that’s why they have a number of other choices available but you’ll notice that this is called an 840 there’s no I at the end of it it means it does not require internet in order to work all you need is your landline and electric and you’re good to go so it’ll amplify just like the other phones the caption button can be turned on and off based on the other phones and it’ll just come up here the words that are being said you will come up here on the display now with this type of phone you must dial this 800 number before the phone number in order to reach the person using this phone so the person using this phone they don’t change anything they just pick up the phone they use it like they always have nothing is any different for them but the people calling them must style this 800 number first and then their phone number and then they’ll get through to them and have their voice captioned out now the reason for this is the person calling the person who has the caption phone they need a way to loop their voice into the caption services and without internet they have to do it manually now the person using the phone, the phone automatically knows to loop that person in. So it does it for them. I really recommend this bone to someone who maybe doesn’t have a lot of people calling them and it’s mostly their friends and family and um there’s just no way that they’re going to get internet they just really have no interest there’s no real benefit for them to have it besides the phone I really think this is an awesome option the other phones you can get for free within your state every every state has a program and i can tell you about those programs if you just ask me I can it’s very easy if you go to hearing loss support com you can get a form and get a free caption from that does use internet but for the ones that do not its $75 and a nice thing that they do is they give you these cards they fold out like little business cards so that when you go somewhere so you go to your doctor’s office you can lead this card with them and it will explain the fact that they have the first call this number and then please down my phone number after that because i’m using a caption telephone so it does have all the other features like customer service answering machine speed-dials phone book all of those features are still along with this the only major differences is that the only way to get it out no Constance by some state programs if you’re low income they can help you if you are with that and then the only other thing is the 800 number so really recommended if somebody does not have any interest in getting internet they really cannot understand what’s being said over the phone they might be able to hear it but understanding the actual words is is not happening this is a really great option for that I love caption forms for that reason so if you have any questions please let me know hearing loss support com take care of things

    I really like the idea of not needing the internet, because, I may not be able to afford the internet much longer, this , I wish was explained to me when I received mine, there was not one on the table that I remember seeing, I want this one, I have the 2400i BT, and I'm just trying to set it up, but, I'm really liking this one instead!!

    I am looking to get one for my fathering law that resides in a nursing home in new york but we reside in florida. The nursing home does not have internets this phone would be perfect but after we purchase the phoned would we have to purchase anything else?

    I'd like to get this for my Dad. Do you still have discounts available? Thanks. Very helpful video.

    Does the user have the captions when they make a call from the phone or is it only on incoming calls?

    Crystal, Great overview of this phone!! My mother is in a nursing home in Minnesota and I live in Arizona and am looking into getting a CapTel phone for her severe hearing loss. The nursing home has Internet (WiFi) service at no charge, but am concerned if the signal ever goes down (for any reason), she wouldn't be able to use captions (which defeats the whole purpose of an "i" phone). You mentioned that this phone (840) can't be used if the facility has a "huge multi line system." What does that mean? She has her own phone line that I call directly, and I pay her phone bill each month. However, when I call her phone, her caller ID doesn't show MY number (just some other number with the same area code), so not sure if this means it's a multi-line system. Any idea? I need to know more before deciding which phone would be right for her room. Thanks!

    This 840 phone is nice but the videos should mention that there IS an option of using this phone with 2 phone lines, not just 1.  The 2nd phone line does the job of connecting to captioning service so that people can call the hearing impaired person directly without dialing a whole bunch of numbers – most people don't want to do this and it's really worth having 2 phone lines for the same immediate convenience as having a captioned phone hooked up to the internet.

    I am definitely checking this out for my mom!! She has a really hard time hearing over her amplified phone and she does not have internet (She's 83 and doesn't want it!), so this would be a Godsend! Only $75 is awesome! I'm so glad I found this information. Thank you so much, Crystal Vaccaro!!

    Nice thing we learned also if you are calling a CapTel Phone from your Cell, When we call Dad, you Save the 800 number plus 3* as delay prompts and add in the actual phone number it connects without having to type in both numbers (For Example 1-888-801-7210***704-555-1212) The stars are pauses maybe one more or one less depending on your area

    Do you still have the discount? Do you have to buy from anyone special to get the discount?
