Please read all of the terms carefully because they affect the legal rights between you and America’s Phone Guys by, among other things, (1) limiting America’s Phone Guys’ liability to you, (2) requiring arbitration of certain disputes, rather than jury trial, and (3) requiring payment of early termination charges or disconnect fees. THESE TERMS OF SERVICE ALSO INCLUDE IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR ACCESS AND USE OF EMERGENCY SERVICES (i.e., 911), INCLUDING LIMITATIONS RELATIVE TO TRADITIONAL, WIRELINE EMERGENCY SERVICES.
1. GENERAL PRICING AND FEES
America’s Phone Guys shall, itself or through one or more of its affiliates, vendors, subcontractors or other service-providers, provide the Services ordered by Subscriber from time to time in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions of the Agreement. Subscriber shall be responsible for ensuring that its Internet connection, any local network equipment, hardware and software used in connection with the Services, and all related configurations, adhere to the minimum standards and technical requirements specified in applicable documentation and information provided by us.
When you subscribe to our Service, you authorize us to collect from your payment method (Credit Card or ACH), including, if applicable, Early Termination Fees, late fees, check return fees, recovery fees and any other outstanding charges. This authorization will remain valid until 30 calendar days after you terminate our authority to charge your payment method.
America’s Phone Guys’ prices are shown in your Proposal and you will be charged based on the Plan and Options you selected during the sales process. A Subscriber who selects a “Month to Month” Plan (a “Monthly Subscriber”) will pay the monthly price(s) listed on the Proposal corresponding to the Plan and Option chosen by such Monthly Subscriber at the time of order. However, such monthly prices are subject at any time to increase to America’s Phone Guys then current prices. A Subscriber who selects a “1, 2, 3 or 5-year Contract” Plan (a “Contract Subscriber”) will pay the monthly price(s) listed on the Proposal corresponding to the Plan and Options chosen by such Contract Subscriber at the time of order. Such monthly prices for Contract Subscribers are guaranteed for the initial 1, 2, 3 or 5-Year Term. Following the initial Term, a Contract Subscriber will automatically renew for subsequent 1-Year Terms at the same rate, except where such renewals are prohibited by law, or subject to an increase in America’s Phone Guys’ sole and absolute discretion. In addition to regular fees set forth in the Proposal, you agree to pay all other charges, including but not limited to usage fees, applicable taxes, fees and surcharges, including charges imposed against America’s Phone Guys by third party providers that it passes on to you. The taxes and surcharges may vary on a monthly basis and may change at any time without notice; any variations will be reflected in your monthly charge. When possible, America’s Phone Guys will break out such charges on the monthly invoice.
1.2 Taxes and Fees
You are responsible for all applicable federal, state, provincial, municipal, local or other governmental sales, use, excise, value-added, personal property, public utility or other taxes, fees or charges now in force or enacted in the future, that arise from or as a result of your subscription or use or payment for the Service or Devices. Such amounts are in addition to payment for the Service or Devices and will be billed to your credit card as set forth in this Agreement. If you are exempt from payments of such taxes, you must provide us with an original certificate that satisfies applicable legal requirements attesting to tax-exempt status. Tax exemption will only apply from and after the date we receive such a certificate.
Taxes and fees will cause some variation in the amounts of your monthly invoices. Monthly charges will vary at least quarterly based on the Federal Universal Service Fee’s quarterly adjustment by the FCC. New taxes and fees are implemented by various jurisdictions regularly. America’s Phone Guys will assess and remit these fees as part of the Service, but has no control over their implementation, the timing or amounts. These taxes and fees with the exception of a small telecom recovery fee are all assessed on a pass-through basis with no mark up.
All Subscribers are required to set up automatic payments via credit card. If payment via credit card is not possible, a monthly fee of fifteen dollars ($15.00) will be assessed in addition to the charges and fees specified in the Proposal. This fee covers the manual process of receiving the monthly payments.
Prior to activation of the Service, you must provide us with a valid email address and a credit card number from a card issuer that we accept (Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American Express). We reserve the right to stop accepting credit cards from one or more issuers. If your credit card expires, you close your account, your billing address changes, or your credit card is canceled and replaced on account of loss or theft, you must advise us at once. We will bill all charges, applicable taxes and surcharges monthly in advance (except for usage-based charges, which will be billed monthly in arrears, and any other charges which we decide to bill in arrears) to your credit card, including but not limited to:
• activation fees;
• monthly Service fees;
• international usage charges;
• toll-free usage charges;
• advanced feature charges;
• equipment purchases when agreed to ahead of time;
• termination fees; and
• shipping and handling charges.
The amount of such fees and charges shall be disclosed in your signed Proposal. Notification of monthly invoices will be sent to you via your email address on file with us. We reserve the right to bill at more frequent intervals if the amount you owe us at any time exceeds $250. Any usage charges will be billed in increments that are rounded up to the nearest minute.
1.4 Billing Disputes
Subscriber agrees to pay all charges due and payable under the Agreement without counterclaim, set-off or deduction, other than amounts disputed. Failure to pay in full may result in immediate suspension of services and America’s Phone Guys shall have no liability for such suspension under any circumstances. During the period of suspension, Services will be unavailable to Subscriber until the account balance is paid in full.
If Subscriber reasonably disputes and invoice, Subscriber must pay the undisputed amounts and provide written notice of the disputed amounts. Failure to dispute a charge within a 30-day period shall constitute and irrevocable waiver of Subscriber’s rights to dispute the charge unless otherwise provided by law. The parties shall attempt to resolve the dispute in good faith for a period of 30 days from the notice. If any charges remain in dispute at the end of the 30-day period, Subscriber shall pay the full amount due within 10 days, otherwise America’s Phone Guys may exercise any available remedies for breach (without regard to any further notice requirement or opportunity for cure under this Agreement, which shall be deemed waived).
All notices of disputed charges should be sent to:
America’s Phone Guys
Attn: Accounts Receivable
P.O. Box 873279
Vancouver, WA 98687
1.5 Late Payments
If Subscriber does not make full payment for all billed charges by the due date, America’s Phone Guys may restrict, suspend or terminate use of the service. America’s Phone Guys may also apply any deposits or other payments made by Subscriber. If America’s Phone Guys restricts, suspends or terminates Subscriber’s services, America’s Phone Guys may, at its sole discretion, choose to restore Subscriber’s services prior to the payment of all charges due. Such restoration shall not be construed as a waiver of America’s Phone Guys’ right to receive full payment for all charges due or again restrict, suspend or terminate the Services at any time for non-payment of unpaid charges. The failure of America’s Phone Guys to restrict, suspend or terminate the Services for non-payment of any charges shall not operate as a waiver or estoppel to restrict, suspend or terminate services of such account for non-payment of current or future charges.
1.6 Termination Fee
If Subscriber elects to terminate this Agreement or any Service prior to the expiration of a Service’s Initial Term, Subscriber must provide thirty (30) days advance notice and must pay the Early Termination Fees for each Service that has not completed its initial Term. The Early Termination Fees should not exceed the fees that would have been owed through the end of such Service’s Initial Term of any agreed upon renewal of the Initial Term. Subscriber and America’s Phone Guys agree that an Early Termination Fee is not a penalty but serves as an accurate approximation of the damages to America’s Phone Guys that result from termination before the end of its Initial Term. Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement for any reason, Subscriber shall promptly pay all amounts owed through the month of termination as well as any applicable Early Termination Fees.
1.7 Money Back Guarantee; Limitations and Conditions
(a) Money Back Guarantee.
We offer Hosted VoIP subscribers a 30-day money back guarantee from the date of activation of the Service.

• you have not exceeded 2,500 minutes of usage; and
• you cancel your Service within the 30-day period.

1.8 Payphone Charges
If you use our “Toll Free” feature or any toll-free feature that we offer in the future, we will be entitled to recover from you any charges imposed on us either directly or indirectly in connection with toll-free calls made to your number. We may recover these amounts by means of a per-call charge, rounded up to the next cent, or in such other fashion as we deem appropriate for the recovery of these costs.
1.9 Charges for Directory Assistance (411) and Operator (0) Calls
We will charge you $1.25 for each call made to directory assistance. Directory Assistance is enabled by default on all new phone lines. Operator calls are billed at $1.25 per call as well. Operator calling may be disabled on new phone lines but if so, it may be activated using the My Account Dialing Options.
1.10 Charges for Conference Bridge Calls
We will charge you for each caller who calls into your conference bridge and is not using America’s Phone Guys’ Service. The per minute usage fee will be calculated based on all off-network participants on the conference bridge.
1.11 Other – Including Charges for Fraudulent Use of Service
All prepaid fees and other payments by Subscriber under this Agreement are non-refundable and non-creditable. There are no pro-rated refunds for unused time. Unless otherwise states in the Proposal, America’s Phone Guys will invoice and charge Subscriber monthly. Subscriber is responsible for paying monthly subscription fees while Services are suspended due to non-payment.
In the event that an account is terminated for any reason with an outstanding balance, America’s Phone Guys will continue to electronically charge the credit card(s) on file for the outstanding balance until all balances are fully resolved. All disconnected accounts and all accounts suspended for non-payment are subject to a twenty-five-dollar ($25.00) reconnection fee. Any account which goes into collection status will be transferred to a collection agency and incur a fifteen-dollar ($15.00) processing fee and all other applicable fees and charges. Subscribers must pay a twenty-five-dollar ($25.00) service charge on disputed credit cards and credit card chargebacks. Past due accounts will accrue a monthly charge of 1.5% of the past due balance or ten dollars ($10.00), depending on which of our carriers you are on.
Subscriber is responsible for all charges attributable to its account incurred with respect to the Services. Subscriber agrees to notify America’s Phone Guys immediately, in writing or by calling the America’s Phone Guys customer service department at (503) 577-2959 or (360) 904-6782, if you become aware at any time that Services are being stolen or fraudulently used. You are responsible for all usage charges attributable to your account, even if incurred as the result of fraudulent or unauthorized use by third parties, until you report the theft or fraudulent use of the Services. You are solely responsible for securing all passwords and access numbers to guard against and prevent unauthorized access to Services by third parties. America’s Phone Guys, may, but is not obligated to, detect or report unauthorized use or fraudulent use of Services. You agree to save, defend, indemnify and hold America’s Phone Guys harmless from all claims, costs, liabilities and damages arising out of such fraudulent or unauthorized use.
If your Service is terminated, you will remain fully liable to us for all charges pursuant to this Agreement and any and all costs we incur to collect such amounts including, without limitation, collection costs and attorney’s fees.
The term of your Agreement begins on the date that America’s Phone Guys activates your Service and ends on the day before the anniversary date of your Term. Subsequent terms of this Agreement automatically renewing for twelve (12) months continue indefinitely unless you give us written notice of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days before the end of the monthly term in which the notice is given. You are purchasing the Service for full monthly terms, meaning that if you attempt to terminate Service prior to the end of a monthly term, you will be responsible for the full month’s charges to the end of the then-current term, including, without limitation, unbilled charges, plus a termination fee, if applicable, all of which will immediately become due and payable. You will also be responsible for the next full month’s charges in the event that you do not provide the requisite thirty (30) days’ notice of termination prior to the expiration of the then-current term. Expiration of the term or termination of Service will not excuse you from paying all accrued and unpaid charges due under this Agreement.
3. TERMINATION BY SUBSCRIBER
Subscriber may terminate this Agreement at any time for any reason by providing America’s Phone Guys with a thirty (30) day written notice in the form of a valid written termination request and paying all fees and other charges accrued or otherwise payable under the terms of this Agreement. Such thirty (30) day period begins on the date on which America’s Phone Guys received Subscriber’s valid written termination request. Notwithstanding notice by a Subscriber to terminate this Agreement, Services will remain in effect through the effective date of termination and the terms and conditions of this Agreement and applicable Service Orders will continue to apply to such services. SUBSCRIBER MAY CANCEL SERVICE ONLY THROUGH THE METHODS SPECIFIED BELOW. FAILURE TO CANCEL IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS SECTION WILL RESULT IN ONGOING SERVICE CHARGES, FEES AND TAXES.

Except as set forth herein, if you received the Devices new from us and the Devices included a limited warranty at the time of receipt, you must refer to the separate limited warranty document provided with the Devices for information on the limitation and disclaimer of certain warranties. Remedies for breach of any such warranties will be limited to those expressly set forth in such documentation.

For Retail Customers only, we will provide a limited warranty on the Device as to manufacturing defects only for a period of one (1) year from the date of purchase.

You will be liable for any and all liability that may arise out of the content transmitted by you or to any person, whether authorized or unauthorized, using your Service or Device(s) (each such person, a “User”). You shall assure that your and your User’s use of the Service and content comply at all times with all applicable laws, regulations and written and electronic instructions for use. We reserve the right to terminate or suspend your Services and remove your or your Users’ content from the Service, if we determine, in our sole and absolute discretion, that such use or content does not conform with the requirements set forth in this Agreement or interferes with our ability to provide Services to you or others. Our action or inaction under this Section will not constitute any review or approval of your or your Users’ use or content.
6. UNLIMITED OR UNMETERED PLANS
All unlimited or unmetered plans (“Unlimited Plans”) are subject to all of the Prohibited Use and Reasonable Use limitations set forth in this Reasonable Use Policy. In addition, all unlimited or unmetered plans are subject to the following terms and conditions:
• Unlimited Plans are for normal business use.
• Unlimited Plans cannot, under any circumstances, be used for call-in lines, call centers, autodialing, fax blasting, telemarketing (including without limitation charitable or political solicitation and/or polling), junk faxing, fax spamming, or other high volume or multi-person calling or faxing purposes.
• Excessive Use of Unlimited Plans is prohibited. “Excessive Use” means that your use exceeds the monthly minutes per line used by 98% of all America’s Phone Guys Unlimited Plan customers. Excessive Use is measured on a monthly basis. For example, if you use 7,500 minutes in one month per line and 98% of all America’s Phone Guys Unlimited Plan customers used less than 7,500 minutes that month per line, your use would constitute Excessive Use and would be in violation of this Reasonable Use Policy.
6.1 Reasonable Use Limitations
Unusually high usage of the Service attributable to individual Accounts may impair America’s Phone Guys’ ability to provide the Services and/or indicate misuse of the Services. Accordingly, for all Service Plans, reasonable use means that your use of the Service does not materially impair America’s Phone Guys’ ability to provide the Service to other users.
America’s Phone Guys reserves the right to review and monitor your usage of your Unlimited Plan at any time (i) to calculate Excessive Use and(ii) compliance with this Reasonable Use Policy, including that there is no Excessive Use.
Except where prohibited by law, if you violate this Reasonable Use Policy, including but not limited to by Excessive Use of the Service, you hereby acknowledge and agree that America’s Phone Guys may modify, suspend, terminate, disconnect or take any other reasonable action regarding your Service to prevent continued violation of this Reasonable Use Policy (a “Plan Modification”), including charging you on per minute basis, at America’s Phone Guys’ published per minute rates, for any Excess Use or automatically converting your Unlimited Plan to a metered plan. You hereby agree to pay America’s Phone Guys, and hereby authorize America’s Phone Guys to charge your credit card for any additional fees, charges and penalties related to any Plan Modification.
7. INTERNATIONAL CALLING
International calling is disabled by default. Subscribers may enable or disable it at any time by contacting our customer service department at (503) 577-2959 or (360) 904-6782. It is enabled on a user by user basis. All international calls are billed at their respective international rates. You can contact us for specific rates if need be. These vary by country and dialing prefix codes. Any and all call charges are rounded to the nearest whole penny. All international calls are subject to an FCC-mandated Universal Service Fund recovery charge. This rate changes quarterly based on the information located on the FCC’s website.
There is a select list of countries that are “blacklisted” due to high volumes of fraudulent calling that occur involving them. You may enable calling these places for a select user by calling our customer service department at (503) 577-2959 or (360) 904-6782 or emailing Service@AmericasPhoneGuys.com. These places are either all enabled or disabled. When you enable one, all are enabled. There is no way to enable these countries individually and you agree that you are doing so at your own risk.
8. EMERGENCY SERVICES – 911 DIALING
Most of our customers (other than those using WiFi or Softphone Devices) have access to either basic 911 or Enhanced 911 (E911) service. With E911 service, when you dial 911, your telephone number and registered address is simultaneously sent to the local emergency center assigned to your location, and emergency operators have access to the information they need to send help and call you back if necessary. Customers in locations where the emergency center is not equipped to receive your telephone number and address have basic 911. With basic 911, the local emergency operator answering the call will not have your call back number or your exact location, so you must be prepared to give them this information. Until you give the operator your phone number, he/she may not be able to call you back or dispatch help if the call is not completed or is not forwarded, is dropped or disconnected, or if you are unable to speak. As additional local emergency centers become capable of receiving our customers information, America’s Phone Guys will automatically upgrade customers with basic 911 to E911 service. America’s Phone Guys will not give you notice of the upgrade.
Certain customers do not have access to either basic 911 or E911 service. If you don’t have access to basic 911 or E911 your 911 call will be sent to a national emergency call center. A trained agent at the emergency call center will ask for the name, telephone number and location of the customer calling 911, and then contact the local emergency center for such customer in order to send help. Examples of situations where 911 calls will be sent to a national emergency call center include when there is a problem validating a customer’s address, the customer is identified with an international location, or the customer is located in an area that is not covered by the landline 911 network. In addition, if you use a WiFi or softphone Device, due to the portable nature of these devices, your 911 calls will be routed to a national emergency center. Emergency personnel do not receive your phone number or physical location when you 911 call is routed to the national emergency call center.
Signing your Proposal indicates acceptance and understanding of our EMERGENCY 911 Dialing Notice and Terms of Service. 911Dialing is different than traditional 911 service. Due to an FCC ruling, you must acknowledge that you understand how our 911 Dialing works.
8.1 Non-Availability of Traditional 911 or E911 Dialing Service
The Service does not support traditional 911 or E911 access to emergency services in ALL locations. The 911 dialing may also not work at all when used in conjunction with WiFi, softphones, Virtual Numbers or Subscriber provided Customer Premise Equipment. Our 911 Dialing is not automatic; you must separately take affirmative steps, as described in this Agreement, to register the address(es) where you will use the Services in order to activate 911 Dialing. You must do this for each phone number that you obtain.
You shall inform any employees, guests and other third persons who may be present at the physical location where you utilize the Service of (i) the possible non-availability of traditional 911 or E911, and (ii) the important differences in and limitations of 911 Dialing as compared with traditional 911 or E911 dialing.
Each Device that you purchase/rent/lease should include a sticker concerning the potential non-availability of traditional 911 or E911 dialing (the “911 sticker”). It is your responsibility, in accordance with our instructions, to place the 911 Sticker on the devices that you use with the Service. If you did not receive a 911 Sticker with your Device, or you require additional 911 Stickers, please contact our customer service department at (360) 904-6782 or (503) 577-2959.
8.2 Dialing 9-1-1
America’s Phone Guys uses the same national 911 network that all traditional telephone companies use. Be aware that 911 Dialing does not function in the event of a power failure or disruption. If there is an interruption in the power supply, the Service, including 911 Dialing, will not function until power is restored. Following a power failure or disruption, you may need to reset or reconfigure your Devices prior to utilizing the Service, including 911 Dialing.
Service outages or suspensions or disconnections or service by your bandwidth provider or ISP will prevent all Service, including 911 Dialing, from functioning. Disconnection of your account will prevent all Service, including 911 Dialing, from functioning. Your ISP, bandwidth provider, or other third party may intentionally or inadvertently block the ports over which the Service is provided or otherwise impede the usage of the Service. If you suspect this has happened to you, you should alert us to this situation, and we will work with you to attempt to resolve the issue. During the period that the ports are being blocked or your Service is impeded, your Service, including 911 Dialing, may not function. You acknowledged that America’s Phone Guys is not responsible for the blocking of ports by any third party or any other impediment to your usage of the Service, and any loss of Service, including 911 Dialing, which may result.
In the event you lose service as a result of blocking of ports or any other impediment to your usage of the Service, you will continue to be responsible for payment of the Service charged unless and until you disconnect the Service in accordance with this Agreement. If there is a Service outage for any reason, such outage will prevent all Service, including 911 Dialing, from functioning. Such outages may occur for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, those reasons described elsewhere in this Agreement.
If there is a Service outage for any reason, such outage will prevent all Service, including 911 Dialing, from functioning. Such outages may occur for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, those reasons described elsewhere in this Agreement. 911 Dialing does not function if you change your phone number or if you change your phone number or if you add or port new phone numbers to your account, unless and until you successfully register the location of use for each changed, newly added or newly ported phone number.
8.3 Registration of Physical Location is Required
We require you to provide the physical address(es) where you will be using our service for 911 purposes. For 911 and E911 calls, the address(es) is/are used to route 911 calls to your local emergency center. When you initially provide your physical address(es), it can take up to 120 minutes to verify your address(es) and activate 911 services.
You authorize us to disclose your name and address to third parties involved with providing 911 Dialing to you, including, by way or illustration, but not limitation, call routers, call centers, and local emergency centers.
If you move any device to another location (meaning a different address, office within the same building, or even a different area of the same floor), you must update your address(es) and or location(s) immediately. You may register only one location at a time. If you do not update your location, your 911 calls may be sent to an emergency center near your old address. When you update your location, it can take several hours to activate 911 services at the updated address.
If you do not register your new location, any call you make using 911 Dialing may be sent to an emergency center near your old address. You will register your initial location of use when you subscribe to the Service.
For purposes of the 911 Dialing feature, you may only register one location at a time for each phone line you use with the Service.
8.4 Alternate 9-1-1 Arrangements
We contract with a third party to use the address of your registered location in order to determine the nearest emergency response center and then forward your call to a general number at that center. When the center receives your call, the operator may not have your address and may not have the phone number. You may need to provide your address and phone number in order to get help.
Our system is configured to send the automatic number identification information; however, one or more telephone companies, not us, route the traffic to the emergency response center and that center may not be capable of receiving and passing on that information. As a result, the operator who answers your 911Dialing call may not be able to automatically obtain your phone number and call you back if the call is not completed or is not forwarded, is dropped or disconnected, if you are unable to speak to tell the operator your phone number, or it the Service is not operational for any reason.
Some local emergency response centers may decide not to have their general numbers answered by live operators for all 24 hours of each day. If we learn that this is the case, we will send your call instead to a national emergency calling center and a trained agent will contact an emergency center near you to dispatch help.
If you are not comfortable with the limitations of the 911 Dialing service, you should make arrangements for an alternate means of accessing traditional 911 or E911 services and disconnect the 911 Service. You understand that additional arrangements need to be made to access emergency services. To access emergency services, you acknowledge and accept that it is your sole responsibility to purchase, with a third-party separately from America’s Phone Guys, traditional wireless or wire line telephone service that offers access to emergency services. By agreeing to these terms of service and by your use of the Service, you acknowledge and accept that the Service may not support or provide emergency service at all times.
8.5 Network Congestion and Reduced Speed for Routing or Answering 911 Dialing Calls
There may be a greater possibility of network congestion and/or reduced speed in the routing of a 911 Dialing call made utilizing the Service as compared to traditional 911 dialing over traditional public telephone networks.
