General FAQs
Who is eligible for Express Phone Service?
Anyone living in a Buckeye Broadband serviceable area in Michigan or Ohio.
Can I keep my number if I move?
Generally you will be able to keep the same number if you are moving within
the same county and the location is served by Buckeye Broadband. If you are
moving outside your current county, you have several options:
A. Get a new number and have your old number sent to a “this number has
been disconnected” message for a maximum of 3 months.
B. Get a new number and have your old number forwarded to your new
number. The forwarding is called “relocation ring” and is $4.75 per month.
C. Purchase Movers Voicemail and tailor a message all callers will hear. With
this service, you will never miss another call. See page 9 for more details.
Can I get more than one (1) line with Express Phone Service?
Yes.
Can I surf the internet with my Express cable modem and talk on my phone
at the same time?
Yes, and you will not see any decrease in internet surfing speed.
Can I choose my own long distance carrier?
It depends on the package you selected. Long distance options are included
in our top two packages. The Premium package includes unlimited local calls
and unlimited Local Toll, In-state and State to State domestic long distance*
calls in the continental United States and Canada (includes the continental
United States (including Alaska), American Samoa, Baker, Howland and Jarvis
Islands, Guam, Hawaii, Johnston Atoll, Kingman Reef, Midway Islands, Navassa
Island, North Mariana Islands, Palmyra Atoll, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands
and Wake Island). The Essential package includes unlimited local calls and up
to 150 minutes ($0.04 per min. thereafter) Local Toll, In-state and State to State
domestic long distance* calls in the continental United States and Canada. If
you do not want the 150 free minutes, you may request your own long distance
carrier (however, price remains the same). Our Ground package allows you to
get Buckeye long distance at the low rate of $0.06 per minute; or you may
choose your own carrier.
Does Buckeye Broadband offer calling cards and personal 800 toll-free
numbers? What are the rates?
Yes, but you must request these services. There are no monthly charges, other
than usage. Please call 1-800-866-3260 to request a card or visit our website
for rate information.

Will my phone number be in the local phonebook or be available to people
through Directory Assistance?
Yes, unless you request not to be listed in the local phonebook or not to be
included in Directory Assistance.
Will my Express Phone Service work if my power goes out?
Yes. Unlike other telephone companies, Express Phone Service has a battery
backup that enables your phone line to continue working several hours after
a power outage. However, if you have phones that require power, such as
cordless phones, the phones will not work during a power outage.
How is Express Phone Service billed?
Charges for your Express Phone Service will appear on your monthly Buckeye
Broadband bill. Visit our website (buckeyebroadband.com). Then click the link to
view your detailed information and follow the instructions.
What taxes or additional charges will appear on my bill?
In general, our additional charges are about the same as or a little less than
traditional phone companies. Buckeye Broadband charges all required federal,
state, county and city/local taxes. Depending on the package selected, taxes
will be about $3 to $6 per month, plus additional surcharges. Please visit our
website for the most current line charges and other costs. Some customers
who have calling cards or personal 800 toll-free numbers may pay slightly
more.
How can I prevent anyone in my home from placing calls to a 900 number?
As a Express Phone Service customer, you have the right to request a 900
number block on your telephone line. This block prevents anyone from calling
a 900 number from your phone line. This block can be removed at your request.
Do I need to dial all 10 digits of the phone number for my local calls? Do
I need to dial “1” before the 10-digit phone number?
Yes, Ohio and Michigan customers need to dial all 10 digits for all calls within
their local calling areas. However, there are no more toll charges for these
local calls, and no more dialing “1” before the 10-digit phone number.
What are some of the cities in your expanded
local calling area?
For customers in Ohio, our expanded local calling area includes most of the
419 area code, as well as Erie, Temperance and Lambertville, Michigan. For
customers in Michigan, our local calling area includes Erie, Lambertville, Lost
Peninsula, North Sylvania, Temperance, Blissfield, Ida, and Petersburg, Michigan;
plus Curtice-Oregon, Holland, Maumee, Perrysburg, Richfield-Berkey, Stony
Ridge, Sylvania, Toledo, Waterville, Moline, Swanton, Whitehouse, Woodville,
Genoa, Delta, Elmore, Metamora, Grand Rapids, Haskins / Totogany and

Three-Way Calling
This feature allows you to add a third party on the line of an existing twoparty call. All three parties can then speak simultaneously.
Caller ID with Name
This feature displays both the telephone number and name of an incoming
caller.
– If you select this feature, you will need a Caller ID box or telephone equipment
that supports Caller ID with Name. Normally incoming cellular calls will not
display the name of the person calling, just the number.
Note: Due to network limitations, calls from some areas will not show a name.
Although rare, some will not show a number or name.
Call Waiting
This feature notifies you of an incoming call, which is waiting to be answered
by using a brief tone. You may answer another call with this feature without
hanging up on the original call.
– When you hear the tone signifying the incoming call, press the hook/flash
button if you want to answer the second call. To return to the original call,
press the hook/flash button again.
– You can temporarily disable Call Waiting on a per call basis by dialing *70
before placing a call.
Call Waiting ID
This feature alerts you that another caller is trying to reach you by displaying
the Caller ID information of the incoming call on your Caller ID unit, while
you’re on the phone. Call Waiting ID only works if you subscribe to Caller
ID with Name. Certain telephones and Caller ID equipment do not
support this feature.
– When you hear the tone signifying the incoming call, press the hook/flash
button if you want to answer the second call. To return to the original call,
press the hook/flash button again.
– You can temporarily disable Call Waiting on a per call basis by dialing *70
before placing a call.

– To activate from an existing two-party call, press the hook/flash button. You
will hear dial tone, then dial the number of the third party. When the third
party answers press the hook/flash button to connect all parties.
– If there is no answer from the third party, simply press the hook/flash button
twice to return to your original call.
– If you have a three-way call in progress, the originator of the three-way call
cannot hang up. If the originator hangs up all three parties will be
disconnected.
– To disconnect the second or third parties from the call, that party can just
hang up from the call and the remaining two parties can continue the call.
Call Forwarding
This feature allows your incoming calls to be automatically redirected to
another telephone number or device.

would like the calls forwarded. The system will verify by reading back the
“forward to” number.

phone line.
