Needs and Uses: On October 25, 2002, the Commission released the Fifth Report and Order, In the Matter of Telecommunications Relay Services and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, (Report and Order), CC Docket Nos. 90-571 and 98-67, FCC 02-269. The Report and Order has eliminated the coin sent-paid requirement and has encouraged specific outreach and education programs to inform Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS) users of their options when placing calls from payphones. Because the Commission concluded that it is infeasible to provide coin sent-paid toll relay service through payphones at this time, and the coin sent-paid toll functionality was not necessary to achieve functional equivalence, carriers no longer needed to provide coin sent-paid toll TRS calls from payphones. The Report and Order has required carriers to continue to provide coin sent-paid local calls free to TRS users. The Report and Order has also required carriers via the Industry Team to submit a one time report on the efforts industry has made to educate consumers on how to make toll coin sent-paid calls.
