Flash Internet Service requires a pre-authorized payment withdrawal from a checking account or with a credit/debit card.  However, should you wish to make changes to your payment method, simply log into My Account and follow the steps below:

  1. Click on "Login" (above on this page) or click here.
  2. Select My Payment Methods.

Late payment fees are applicable and will be added to any past due charged on the following monthly invoice.
Flash Internet Service requires a pre-authorized payment, through bank or credit/debit card withdrawal, on the same date each month.  You will be sent an email that confirms the payment amount withdrawn and advises you that your invoice is available to view online via My Account.  Simply log into My Account to view your usage, download a PDF copy of your invoice(s) and view payment history. 
We bill one month in advance to ensure services are prepaid prior to usage. In addition, on the first invoice, there will also be a pro-rated portion for service(s) that have activated prior to bill cycle assignment (which should only be for a few days).  Therefore, your first invoice will be higher than subsequent invoices.  After your first invoice, you can expect your Flash Internet Service to be approximately the same amount each month.

Payment for your Flash Internet account is withdrawn on the same date each month (known as your bill cycle date).  Flash will send you a Notification email for a successful or unsuccessful payment.  If payment fails, you should remit payment as soon as possible.  If not made by the 7th day, after initial payment failure notification, service may be suspended. 

You may log in to My Account, at anytime, to process a payment.

For accounts set up with a recurring payment via a credit/debit card, there are no fees for declined transactions. However, declined transactions processed through a checking account (due to insufficient funds) will incur a $20 charge. There may be additional fees charged by your financial institution.  Late payment fees are also applicable and will be added to your past due charges.

3-Way Audio Calling allows you to have a conversation with two different callers at one time. 

  1. While on a call with the first party, press the flash button on your phone to put your first party on hold.

Dial the people you call most with just a push of a button! To program a phone number as part of a speed dial list, enter the star code for Speed Dial 8 (*74), followed by the one-digit number (choose from 2-9) you want to assign as one of your eight speed dial choices, followed by the telephone number you want to associate with that speed dial, followed by the # key on your phone.

For example, to assign speed dial code 2 with the number 704-555-1212, dial *74 27045551212 and then press the # key. A message announces the success of the operation. When you want to call the person, simply dial the single digit instead of the entire phone number.

If your phone does not have a redial button, press *66 to call the last number you dialed. To dial back the last person who called you, simply pick up your phone and dial *69. Your Flash Home Phone Service will dial back the number of your last incoming call.

Call Blasting allows you to set your incoming calls to ring multiple numbers simultaneously, so you can be reached by your caller as fast as possible - without going through a series of different numbers in a sequence. If no phones are answered while Call Blasting is activated, the call will be sent to your voice mail. 

Call Blasting options are available within My Account.  

Basic Call Forwarding allows you to forward inbound calls to only one telephone number when your phone is busy, when there is no answer, or all the time. Advanced Call Forwarding allows you to forward calls to multiple phone numbers. Call forwarding to multiple telephone numbers can happen in two different ways: Priority-Based or Call Blast calling.

Three Types of Call Forwarding:

  • Call Forwarding Always (*72 to activate, *73 to deactivate)
  • Call Forwarding Busy (*90 to activate, *91 to deactivate)
  • Call Forwarding No Answer (*92 to activate, *93 to deactivate)

To activate Call Forwarding

  1. Press the appropriate star (*) code.
  2. Enter the number to which your calls should be forwarded, either within your local calling area or to a long distance number, then press # key.

Note: Any applicable long distance charges on calls forwarded to a long distance number are billed to the Call Forwarding subscriber, not the caller.  When you hang up, calls will be automatically forwarded until you deactivate the service.

To deactivate Call Forwarding

  1. Press the appropriate star (*) code and listen for the automated message indicating the Call Forwarding was deactivated.
  2. Hang up.
Note: International Call Forwarding is not supported.

Advanced Call Forwarding options are available within My Account.

Caller ID allows you to see the phone number of the person calling you. For phones that have a built-in Caller ID screen, when a call comes in, you'll hear the phone ring and see the screen display the caller ID information of the caller (if not blocked by the caller). 

May not be available in all areas.

When you are on the phone, you will hear a series of beeps indicating an incoming call. To accept the incoming call, and put the original call party on hold, press your phone's Flash button briefly (1-2 seconds) or briefly hold down the "hang up" button on your phone. Switch back to the original party by briefly pressing your phone Flash button or "hang up" button again.
