Help protect against unsolicited telephone marketing calls and faxes! State Law (Assembly Bill 2134), effective January 1, 1999, requires the Telephone Company to provide their customers the following information. Various governmental agencies publish information that generally describes telephone subscribers’ rights under the state and federal law.


As a consumer, you have rights to privacy and to protect yourself from potential telemarketing fraud, unsolicited sales calls and faxes. The laws apply to live calls, pre- recorded voice calls & artificial (computerized) voice calls. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has adopted rules and regulations, effective December 20, 1992, implementing The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). Different rules and regulations apply to calls placed to homes and businesses. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) also has Telemarketing Sales Rules, which have been enacted to help protect you as a consumer. State laws are in place to protect citizens who have had their privacy violated or have been victims of fraudulent telemarketers. The State Attorney General’s Office, along with the Telemarketing Sales Rules, has the authority to investigate and prosecute fraudulent telemarketers who operate across state lines.

From telephones with touch-tone service, dial *72, listen for two short tones. 2. Dial the number that will be accepting your calls. You will hear normal ringing. Call Forwarding is in effect when the party answers. At that time, you can tell them they will be receiving your calls. 3.

Teen Service Know who the call is for before you answer the phone. With Teen Service , you can have two telephone numbers assigned to the same line. Each number has a distinctive ring, so you can assign a number solely to the children. Or, you can assign a separate number to your home business and one to the family. How to use it: Wait until the full ringing pattern is complete before answering your telephone, so you will know which telephone number was dialed. Note: Although you have two telephone numbers assigned to your line, you have just one line and only one conversation can be held at a time. Call Waiting Lets you know someone else is calling when you’re using the telephone. You will hear a beep tone. If you ignore the first beep, there will be a second one in ten seconds. The party calling you hears only the normal ringing. How to use it: 1. If you hear a beep and want to end the first call, hang up. Your telephone will immediately ring with the second call. 2. To answer the second call, press and release the receiver button quickly. The first call will be put on “hold” and you will be connected to the second call. 3. To return to the first call, press and release the receiver button again. You can switch back and forth between the two calls as often as you want.

Notes: While your calls are being forwarded, your telephone will ring briefly each time your number is dialed. You cannot answer the calls, but the ring is a reminder that Call Forwarding is still in effect. If you forward your calls outside of your local calling area, you will be charged for any calls forwarded from your number to the distant number. For example, if you forward your calls to a number in New York, the person calling you is

charged for a call only to your number, but you are charged the rate from your number to the number in New York. While calls are being forwarded, you can still make outgoing calls.
