Description of service

This is the price we paid for a phone installation service. The service basically consisted of having three phones installed with three separate phone lines connected to them. The price included all fees associated with the installation except for the price of the phones, phone cords, connectors, and cables which we had already purchased. The installation took about an hour and a half. The technician arrived on time as scheduled.

Review of Service

My husband and I needed three additional phone lines for our small business. It was just too confusing to install the phones and lines ourselves, so we called our phone comapny and they charged us for a basic service call. It was worth it to us because with the three lines, installing the phones was actually a bit complicated. The technician was friendly and helpful. He was also nice enough to make sure the cords were in order and not a tangled mess (as they would have been if we would have tried to install the phones!). Overall, we were very happy with this service.


For most people, having a phone installed by a technician is not necessary. However, if you have more than one line and different phones, it may be worth your time to have them installed for you.
