Frequently Asked Questions:
I am leaving the country for a vacation and need to make VRS calls. How do I pre-register?

I'm going to be gone longer than four weeks. Why can't I use Purple VRS longer?
The FCC allows U.S. citizens traveling abroad only four weeks to make VRS calls.
Why do I have to share my personal travel information with you? I don't feel comfortable doing that.
The FCC requires Purple to collect this information so we can verify where you are when making a call from outside the U.S. If you have any questions or comments regarding FCC regulations, you can contact them by going to www.fcc.gov/cgb or calling 888-225-5322.
Can I add, delete or change travel plans?
Yes! Login to your Purple account, and click on “International Travel” to add or update your travel information. But, please note, if you have already entered travel information and your plans change, you may need to delete your old travel plans and enter your new travel plans.
What if my plans change and my trip is shortened? If I'm still registered as being out of the country, but I'm in the U.S., will I be able to make a call?
Yes! If you make travel plans and they are canceled or your trip is shortened, and you are in the U.S., you can ALWAYS make calls.
What if I'm traveling to several different regions in the four-week period?
That's okay! You can book multiple regions with Purple and make calls from those regions. Just don't forget to register all of your travel plans!
I know which country I'm going to, but I'm not sure which region it is located in.
No problem, please click here to look up the country you are traveling to and to see which region to select when pre-registering your travel.
Once I begin my travels outside the United States, am I able to make and receive VRS calls within the country I'm in, or am I only able to make and receive United States VRS calls?
The FCC allows VRS calls ONLY to and from the United States. For example, if you are traveling in Paris and would like to make a VRS call to a friend in Paris, the FCC WILL NOT ALLOW THIS TYPE OF CALL. The FCC allows VRS calls ONLY to and from the United States, and only if the user is registered for international travel.
