Phone News

phone time Bonnie Phelps

“Hello!”

Most of you probably no longer have an old fashioned phone, plugged in to the wall.  But for those of you who do, storms often bring phone static and outages.

My desk phone has been out for a week.  You might wonder what I did without a phone!  No problem.  AT&T offers “The Message Center” that makes it easy to roll calls to another number.  I rolled the calls to my cell (it works here now – Hooray!) and didn’t miss a beat. Some of you might appreciate that service that includes 3-way calling and other features.

When you do have phone issues, connect with AT&T at contact info below as soon as you can.  I was given a date two weeks out to get my phone working again, but – ta da!  It has dial tone a week early.  Thanks to our AT&T friends of Palomar.

AT&T Phone Company 800 310-2355 or www.att.com

Other options for phones on Palomar are VoIP phones that work through your internet.  Cell phones are working at more properties these days and include call-forwarding, 3-way calling and other features that I am quite certain I don’t even know about.

Just wanted to pass this info on as it may be helpful to some folks out there.  Glad to get questions answered anytime.

  1. What is also good to know is that if the electricity goes out and your wireless land line doesn’t work, have an old fashioned phone on hand that plugs directly into a phone terminal in the wall.

  2. I would have recognized you anywhere!

  3. Hi Bonnie! Most newer phones have a feature called WiFi calling which allows you to make and receive calls and text messages while connected to WiFi. My Tmobile iphone works this way for me up here while connected my At&t mobile WiFi hotspot! Some folks might not know about this. I showed Jim and Teresa a while back. Let it snow let it snow let it snow…
