These terms of service are subject to change. Any changes to the terms and conditions of service are effective when we publish them on our website or monthly bill.If you activated your cellular services before the effective date of these terms and conditions, these terms and conditions replace and supersede any previous terms and conditions. Every use of the term “you” or “your” in this Contract includes you, individually, as well as any company or other entity on whose behalf you are acting in submitting this application for service and/or equipment.

AVAILABILITY OF LIMITED SERVICE – Service is generally available to cellular mobile radio units (also referred to as cellular telephones or fixed wireless devices) equipped for this service and when within the range of cell sites located in the service area. Even within the service area of a cell site, many factors can affect the availability and quality of your service, including network capacity, your device, terrain, buildings, foliage and weather. Service is furnished for use by you or your authorized user. A telephone number may not appear in more than one mobile radio unit. Orders including those which involve the start, change or discontinuance of service, will be accepted by MDC only from you or your authorized user. If you port a number to MDC, MDC may not be able to provide some services right away, such as 911 location services.

SERVICE NUMBER -You have no property right in the service number. MDC reserves the right to assign, designate, or change such number when in its sole judgment, such assignment, designation or change is reasonably necessary in the conduct of its business. MDC will give you prior notice of any such number change.You may not: (1) modify the number we program into any phone or other equipment; (2) transfer or duplicate the number to any phone or other equipment other than that authorized by us or as expressly allowed by the rules and regulations of the Federal Communications Commission regarding number portability; or (3) transfer the number to any other individual or entity without our permission.

Upon termination of service, or after 1 year of good payment history, up to the discretion of MDC, MDC may apply your deposit against the outstanding amounts due hereunder, or against the outstanding amounts due on any other account for which you are responsible for payment, or any other amounts you owe MDC. The balance of the deposit, after all obligations to MDC have been satisfied shall be returned to you. MDC may require an additional deposit at any time during your service commitment.

UNLIMITED VOICE SERVICES -Unlimited voice services (if applicable) are provided solely for live dialog between two individuals. Unlimited voice services may not be used for conference calling, call forwarding, monitoring services, data transmissions, transmission of broadcasts, transmission of recorded material, or other connections which do not consist of uninterrupted live dialog between two individuals. If we find that you are using an unlimited voice service offering for other than live dialog between two individuals, we may, at our option, terminate your service or change your plan to one with no unlimited usage components. We will provide you with notice that we intend to take any of the above actions.

You understand that in the event of non-payment of charges, your service may be suspended and the cellular radio system may be programmed to refuse service to the equipment on which the delinquent charges were incurred until payment in full is made. You agree to advise any prospective purchaser of the equipment of any such charges outstanding. We may change a fixed wireless device’s software or programming over the air without notice and without your prior consent. This might affect data stored on your fixed wireless device, or the way you’ve programmed it. Your fixed wireless device may also contain software that prevents it from being used with any other company’s wireless service, even if you leave us. Your fixed wireless device may not be compatible with another wireless carrier’s network and may not be capable of accessing all services or features offered by MDC or another wireless carrier.

PRIVACY -MDC may collect personal information about you. MDC also may gather some information through our relationship with you, such as information about the quantity, technical configuration, type, destination and amount of your use of our telecommunications services. You can find out how we use, share,and protect the information we collect about you in the MDC Privacy Policy, available at www.MDCell.com.

MDC LIMITATION AND CONDITIONS OF LIABILITY; INDEMNITY -Service may be temporarily interrupted, including dropped calls, delayed or otherwise limited due to: 1) transmission limitations caused by atmospheric and other conditions; 2) the availability of radio frequency channels; 3) system capacity limitations; 4) coordination with adjacent cellular companies; 5) equipment modifications, upgrades, relocations, failures, repairs and/or similar activities; and 6) negligence of MDC. MDC therefore assumes no duty to provide uninterrupted service to you or your authorized user.

No credits shall be given for dropped calls. MDC has the right to require that credits be applied for upon written request and to deny any request for credit for an alleged service problem where the evidence of such problem is inconclusive, or the request is otherwise unwarranted or insufficient.
