Minnesota Relay (7-1-1) And Direct Access Numbers

7-1-1 is a toll-free, nationwide relay service access number. You may dial 7-1-1 from anywhere in the United States and be connected to the relay service in the state you're calling from. While the 7-1-1 access number is easy to remember, dialing the direct toll-free number for a specific type of relay call may result in faster connections because the call does not need to be transferred.

Voice Carry Over: 1-877-627-3024
