M-ratings for mobile phones
M-ratings indicate how well phones reduce interference to a hearing aid operating in acoustic coupling mode. Each phone is assigned an M-rating from M1 to M4. M4 is the highest. The higher the rating, the more likely the phone avoids interference. Under FCC rules, a phone must have an M-rating of M3 or M4 to be hearing aid compatible. These phones are less likely to interfere with hearing aids.

T-ratings for mobile phones
T-ratings indicate how well phones reduce interference to a hearing aid operating in inductive coupling mode, in other words, with a telecoil. Each phone is assigned a rating from T1 to T4. T4 is the highest. The higher the rating, the better the phone avoids interference. Under FCC rules, phones must have a T-rating of T3 or T4 to be hearing aid compatible. These phones are more likely to work well for people who use hearing aids with telecoils.
