Q. What is the description field on the LOA intended for?

A. The description field is for the customer to explain what type of phone line each specific phone line is, for example, fax, modem, etc.  This is how it will show up on their invoice, for the customer to clearly see how many minutes were used from each type of phone line.  If it's a regular landline, it is not necessary to fill in any information.  Additionally, this field should be used when there are numbers that are part of a hunt group.  Additionally, if a customer is ordering 'Call Forwarding' they can indicate in the description field (on the residential LOA), which telephone numbers to forward the calls to. This field should be used when a customer lists a cell phone number for 'CellThru" service.  Please list 'CellThru' in the description field.



Q. What type of hunting is available, and how do I note this information on the LOA?

A. Hunting will generally be circular or sequential.  Circular hunting means that the last line in the hunting group will hunt back to the first in the hunting group.  Please number the lines according to how the hunting should work.
