Phone Service


Getting Started


Includes basic voicemail, call transfer/3-party conference, call forward, call hold, local and long distance access).

Contact Client Services at 2-3434 to signup.

When any phone service is installed for a UNL customer, the phone number is attached to a physical location as part of our Telecommunications Department’s E911 compliance.

If you need to move your phone service from one location to another (even within the same building, floor or office), PLEASE DO NOT MOVE THE DEVICE YOURSELF. Doing so will invalidate the correct location information and would provide incorrect information to responders in the event 911 is called from your phone.

Please contact Centrex at 472-3434 and they will assist in getting your phone service moved and registered properly to maintain proper E911 compliance.
