Telephone Repair Services
Effective January 1, 2009, fixed line telephone customers are responsible for the maintenance and repair of all the inside wiring and jacks for their telephone service as well as the telephones inside their location (house or office).
Inside Wiring Maintenance Plan: $3.00 per line/month*
Optional monthly recurring charge for customers who want PNCC to maintain or repair CPE (inside wiring and jacks) on the customer premises. Maintenance includes determining if customer owned equipment is the cause of any problems but does not cover cost of repair of customer owned equipment (i.e. telephone instruments). Customers who do not want this option will be charged labor and materials for each job requested.*Rates subject to change
Telephone Trouble Shooting Tips: Before Calling 611
Before you call 611 for repair service, PNCC recommends checking first to see if the problem is inside or outside your building.
If the problem is outside in PNCC's lines there will be no charge for the repair service.
If the problem is inside your building location (in the telephone equipment, inside wiring or jacks), then the customer is responsible for the repair and you will be charged labor and materials for PNCC to perform the repair work (for inside wiring and jacks, telephone instruments not included).
If you subscribe to the Inside Wiring Maintenance Plan (only $3/month per line) then PNCC's troubleshooting and repair of inside wiring and jacks is covered.

How to Use Special Calling ServicesFor Your Fixed Line Telephone
Three-Way Calling: With Three-Way Calling, three people can be connected on the phone at the same time.
Call Forward: Now when you are away from your home, your calls can be automatically forwarded to you.
Call Waiting: Now while talking on the phone you won't miss another call. With Call Waiting, a special tone alerts you to an incoming call when you are on the phone; the caller hears only a normal ring. You can then place your current call on temporary hold and answer the new call.
Plus, with Cancel Call Waiting, you can eliminate Call Waiting for the duration of a call. This is especially useful when you don't want your call interrupted or when you are using a computer on the line. Dial *70 to activate Cancel Call Waiting; just hang up and Call Waiting will be automatically reactivated.
