If you are leaving your home for an extended period of time, you may wish to place your services on a Seasonal Account Maintenance Plan.
By enrolling in the Account Maintenance Plan all of your important subscriber information will remain in our customer billing database. This means that your telephone number, information listing, and directory listing all remain active, even when your phone service is disconnected. Your telephone and enhanced services will be automatically restored at a predetermined date, using your same telephone number, without the need to contact our office. Your services can be on Seasonal Maintenance for a maximum of six months and a minimum of 30 days.
