Directory listings
For each customer a listing is included in the alphabetical directory without charge. Customers-may arrange for additional listings under regulations applying to such listings, to be placed in the alphabetical directory. Residence telephones advertised and used for business purposes automatically take a business rate.

Special Services

Call Restriction
Call Restriction is an optional feature that provides local calling but blocks any outgoing call that has a long-distance or premium charge. A business customer could place a phone in the employee lounge and not worry about unauthorized long-distance calls.

900 Call Blocking
900 Call Blocking allows you to block calls placed from your telephone to 900 services telephone numbers.

Number Referral Service
A free service which informs callers that your phone has been disconnected or, if you wish, informs callers of your new phone number. This service is available on your primary number for a 12-month period, or the duration of the directory, whichever is longer.

Voice Mail
LCTS Voice Mail is a service that allows users to send, store, and receive messages in the sender's own voice. Each user has a personal "mailbox," accessible 24 hours a day from any Touch-Tone telephone. Each mailbox is protected by a secret code selected by the user.

Install Everything At Once

If you have residence service and are planning a move, have all phone installations done at one time. Extra visits by an installer mean extra charges. So plan all of your installations or phone changes in advance and you'll save money. Remember to take your phone books with you when you move. It'll save you lots of time when you want to call back to friends or business associates you left behind.
