I COPPER NEWS Page 11 Thursday, December 16, 1982 CHANGES FOR MOUNTAIN BELL'S RESIDENTIAL CUSI00MERS. i I New Year's Day, 1983, will be a day of changes for Mountain Bell. And that means changes in the way you'll do business with us. Some of these changes you'll like. Some will take getting used to. But all are the result of a Federal Communications Commission decision to increase competition in the tele- communications industry. This should result in a greater choice of products and services. Here's how the changes will affect you. ORDERING PHONE SERVICE Beginning January 1, you won't be able to order service or pay your bill at a Bell PhoneCenter. That's because Bell PhoneCenters will no longer be owned and operateLlby Mountain Bell. They'll be part of American Bell, a new AT&T subsidiary created to compete in the sale of telephone equipment. Some of the existing Bell PhoneCenters will be convert- ed to Mountain Bell Service Centers which we'll operate to do business with you. So you'll still be able to do business with us in person. Although you'll probably find calling us is a faster, more convenient way to take care of your service needs ........... :!i: Just call your Service Representative'{iii!:: to order new service or make changes :' in your service. You'll find the number " :::: listed on your phone bill or in the " zq,L: Customer Guide section in the front ..... :: of the White Pages Directory. GETrlNG TELEPHONF00 AND REPAIR SERVICE In 1983, you'll still be able to get phones from us at our Service Centers. But your choice of certain styles and colors will be limited to our current supply. You can also get phones from other suppliers. When you get telephones from us, you can either pick them up or have them delivered. Delivery will take a few days and there is a charge for this service. We'll continue to repair or replace equipment purchased or leased from us after January 1. Our repair service numbers are listed in the Customer Guide. Equipment obtained from other suppliers should be returned to them for repair. PAYING YOUR BILL The easiest way to pay your bill is to mail it. Call your Service Representative for questions about your bill or for the nearest location to pay in person. The number is listed on your bill and in the Customer Guide. USING THE CUSTOMER GUIDE , ,, ,,, ,,, i ......
