Non-Published or Non-Public? Federal regulations require CVT to provide cus tomer billing name and address information to telecommunications companies for use in billing you directly for any calls you make using their services. CVT will only provide this information upon the request of the telecommunications provider unless the subscriber to a nonpublished or unlisted telephone number has affirmatively requested that its billing name and address not be disclosed. Upon such request the information will not be provided. If you have a problem with your phone service or billing, call our business office. If you have a tele phone repair problem, call our Repair Service. CVT customer service and technical support personnel are specially trained to solve your telephone problems and to be sensitive to your needs. However, if you’re not satisfied, feel free to ask for a supervisor. If your problem can’t be solved by the supervisor, higher levels of man agement are available to help you. Remember, we’re here to serve you. Tones and Signals The following types of tones are sometimes heard on landline telephones. If you are calling our offices for technical support, our personnel may ask if you hear one or more of these signals. • Dial Tone A continuous hum, the signal to start dialing. • Ringing Signal A burring tone repeated at regular intervals. • Busy Signal A steady buzz-buzz tone. Credit for Telephone Service Outages Upon request of the customer, CVT will allow customers credit in all cases where telephones are “out of service” for a period of two days or more from the time the trouble was reported by the customer, except when the “out of service” Reporting and Solving Telephone Problems

There are, however, a few situations where a telephone user should use caution. • Using the telephone near water – The tele phone should not be used while you are in the bathtub, shower or pool.
