Virtual Service affords subscribers the ability to place a Virtual Message on a ceased land line. The service is used to advise of relocations and/or change of service numbers. Customers can request the service through 824-TSTT (8788), at the same time that the request is made to cease the land line.

Once the ceased service number is dialed, the calling party hears a pre-recorded message which states the name of the company, the fact that the number dialed has changed and the new land line numbers and or fax numbers to be called. If requested the new company address and email address can be included. At the end of the recording callers hear a busy tone therefore no messages can be left on this line.
