2. Unwanted Marketing Calls
The National Do Not Call Registry provides a place for you to add your telephone number to the Do Not Call data base.   Click here to go to the information and registration web site.  You may also call 1-888-382-1222 to be added to the list.  In addition, if you are receiving marketing calls that you wish would stop, tell the caller to place you on their "Do Not Call" list.  Don't be afraid to interrupt the caller and tell them what you want, and don't be afraid to hang up.  Click here to see more information on marketing and survey calls.

3. Telephone Bills
Telephone bills are mailed so that you should receive them on the first of each month.   The bill is due when you receive it and is considered delinquent if it is not paid by the 10th of the month.  If we have not received payment by the 20th of the month, we will require prompt payment the next month.  So during the next month, if the entire bill is not paid by the 10th, we will send out a disconnect notice and disconnect your telephone service if full payment is not received.

Your are billed in advance for telephone service.  Any bill for toll is after the calls are made.  New service and disconnected service customers pay only for the days they use the service.  Contact the business office if you have any questions.

4. Security Deposit
We will check the credit worthiness of all new customers.  We will use this information in deciding if a deposit will be required.  If a customer using our service does not have a deposit, but has difficulty paying their telephone bill, we may require a deposit for their account.  Deposits earn interest, and will be refunded with interest after a period of satisfactory bill payments.
