Sprint Relay Partners with United Cerebral Palsy

March 2014 — United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) will partner with Sprint to promote Sprint Relay, a speech-to-speech (STS) service provided for people with hearing and speech disabilities.  Although Sprint Relay has been providing communications assistance for over 20 years, UCP’s newfound partnership with Sprint will help raise awareness of these services.  Specifically, Sprint Relay allows Sprint customers to dial *STS (*787) to directly access STS services and connect with a Communications Assistant (CA).  The service also provides customers with the ability to “email call instructions for the STS CA prior to the call” and store up to 30 phone numbers, allowing the customer to ask for a caller by name instead of dictating the phone number.
