Facts You Should Know About Purchasing Your Own Telephone

When you decide to purchase your own telephone, there are a few things you must remember:

•  You still will be required to pay a monthly fee for access to the telephone network.

• You will be responsible for your telephone's repairs, and if your telephone is found defective or harmful to the telephone network, you must disconnect it immediately. If the company makes a repair visit and the service difficulty or trouble results from customer provided equipment, you will be subject to charges.

• Your telephone company still will be responsible for repairing company-owned rental telephones and for maintaining the telephone network and providing you with basic service.

• While there are many changes taking place in the telecommunications industry, your local telephone company still is committed to providing you, the customer, with the best service we can at the lowest rate possible. And we want you to be informed. So, if you have any questions, ask us.
