If you’ve ever accidentally enabled TTY mode on your Android device, you know how annoying it can be. TTY mode is designed for people who are hard of hearing or have difficulty speaking, and it essentially turns your phone into a text-only device. But if you don’t need TTY mode, it can be a real pain to try to disable it.
Here’s how to remove Tty mode from your Android device.
- Swipe down from the top of your screen to open the notification shade, then tap the gear icon to open Settings
- Scroll down and tap About phone, then scroll down to the Build number field and tap it seven times
- You’ll see a message that says “You are now a developer!” when you’ve done it correctly
- Tap the back button twice to return to the previous menu, then scroll down and tap Developer options
- If you don’t see this option, go back and tap About phone again, then try Step 3 again
- Scroll down and toggle off Enable USB debugging

What is Tty Mode on Android?
If you’ve ever used a telephone, you’re probably familiar with TTY mode. TTY (Teletype) mode is a feature of Android that allows people with hearing and/or speech impairments to use their phones to communicate with others using text-based communication.
To use TTY mode on your Android device, simply open the Phone app and go to Settings > Call Settings > Additional Settings.
From there, you can enable TTY mode and select which type of TTY device you’re using. Once enabled, any calls you make or receive will be routed through the TTY device. There are a few things to keep in mind when using TTY mode on your Android device.
First, not all phones support TTY mode; if yours doesn’t, you won’t be able to use this feature. Second, even if your phone does support TTY mode, not all carriers do – so you may not be able to use this feature when making calls over a cellular network (although most major carriers in the US do support it). Finally, keep in mind that while TTY mode can be useful for those with hearing or speech impairments, it’s also notoriously difficult to use; so if you don’t absolutely need it, you might want to stick with regular ol’ voice calling.

If you do not have a TTY device, you can still turn on the TTY setting on your phone and use the relay service to communicate with someone who does have a TTY device.
