Phone Outage During Spring Break, March 16 through March 20, 2015

Due to the ongoing construction project, the phone service in new ME, old ME, Rapson Link, and Aerospace Engineering will be down from Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 20.  They are cutting over to the new phone service that week.
Some suggestions I have as to how to handle daily business with no phone service are listed below.
You will still receive voice messages on your number.  You can call your phone number using your cell phone to retrieve them.  You can also have them sent to your email and retrieve them from there or you can log on to http://go4msg.umn.edu to retrieve them.
I recommend putting an outgoing voice message on your phone prior to March 16 indicating that our phone service is under construction and asking them to either send you an email or call your cell phone, if you're comfortable giving out your cell phone number.
We are planning on the outage for the entire week.  However, some phones will come live earlier.  We won't really know until they start the cut over.
Please see me with any concerns or questions. 
Regards,
Pam
