Repair Service/Network Interface

In Working Order Repair Service

Try the telephone. If the problem you experience in your home continues, try the test once more using a different telephone set (if available). If the problem still continues, contact the telephone company and report the problem. Once you have finished your test, un- plug your set and securely reconnect the modular jack. Close the cover and screw the fastener down until the cover is snug and tight. But remember, if Ponderosa is called and the trouble is located in your equipment, a service charge will be assessed. If the customer’s presence is required to perform a service connection or repair, the Utility will offer a four-hour period within which service or repair will commence. Warning Access to the telephone network is possible from the “Network Interface” device and as a result, it is feasible that unauthorized use may occur. To discourage the possibility of such use and the resulting toll charges, we recommend that you secure the device with a padlock. If you have any further questions regarding this Warning Notice please con- tact our Customer Care Center.

Call our Repair Service at 6-1-1 for any problems you ex- perience with your telephone line.
