When establishing new Long Distance, or changing providers, the long distance provider may take several days before long distance service commences. When establishing a new phone line there is no charge to add a long distance provider. If you elect to change your long distance provider the “new’ provider will authorize us to change your carrier; this can take several days. After the initial selection there is a $5.00 charge to change carriers.
