Further, OON will not be responsible for missed calls due to an outage of it’s or it’s carrier or contractors systems or networks. OON may offer full or partial refunds of monthly service charges in the event of a system or network failure. However, liability for loss of service will never exceed the monthly service charges.
Subscriber agrees to pay all charges for Subscribers use of the Services according to the Service Plan and payment option selected by Subscriber and applicable to those Services and in effect for your country of residence. OON reserves the right to access and collect federal, state, municipal, or local sale or other taxes, regulatory fees (including but not limited to Universal Service Fund), or other charges on the Services as it deems appropriate or as required by law. OON reserves the right to change prices or institute new charges for access to or use of OON Services. All changes will be posted by OON on the OON Website and Subscriber is responsible for regularly reviewing such pricing information to obtain timely notice of such changes. Continued use of the Services or non-termination of your OON account after changes are posted constitutes your acceptance of the prices as modified by the posted changes.
Charges for Services may include activation, number transfer, recurring subscription, directory assistance listing and usage fees. The activation fee and recurring subscription fees are payable in advance. The activation fee and first month service fee is NON-REFUNDABLE once the order has been completed by OON and service has been activated. Further, Subscriber understands and agrees that all charges are billed monthly in advance for service in the following thirty (30) day period. OON WILL NOT refund charges billed and collected if service is canceled or terminated for any reason within the thirty (30) day pre-paid period. If service is canceled or terminated, billing will cease upon the next monthly service anniversary date (billing date) following OON’s receipt of notification. If, for any reason, a Subscriber is charged beyond the service anniversary following a cancelation or termination, OON will promptly issue a credit for the amount incorrectly charged. Note however that any usage charges for overage minutes that come due after service cancelation or termination will still be due and payable.
NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO CHARGE MADE TO THE SUBSCRIBER UNTIL THE ACTIVATION HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED. If, for any reason, the transfer of Subscriber’s home telephone number cannot be completed, there will be no charge to the Subscriber.

Call duration will be calculated in one (1) minute increments and fractional minutes will be rounded to the nearest whole minute. Usage will be calculated on all calls to the Subscribers number that are completed to the OON switch and answered by the Subscribers greeting. In the event that OON determines that Subscriber has excessive* usage, Subscriber will be automatically charged per minute usage fees (as detailed in the Service plan description or as updated from time to time and posted on the OON Website) for each minute. Usage charges will be accessed at the end of the Subscribers billing cycle and will appear in the next invoice. Note that usage charges will be billed in arrears.
Subscriber is responsible for all calls and minutes, even those originating from unintended callers (e.g. wrong number calls).
Payment of your OON account balance is due monthly and will be made by the payment method designated by you and currently on file for your OON account.
Charges will be accessed and paid on a monthly basis in the currency billed. Failure to pay the charges is a material breach of this Agreement and grounds for termination by OON. If the payment method for your OON account is by credit card and payment is not received by OON from the card issuer or its agents, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by OON. Each time you use the Services, or allow or cause the Services to be used, you agree and reaffirm that OON is authorized to charge your designated card. Your credit or charge card issuer’s agreement governs your use of your designated card in connection with OON, and you must refer to such agreement with respect to your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. You agree that OON may (at its option) accumulate charges incurred during your monthly billing cycle and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each cycle, and that OON may delay obtaining authorization from your card issuer until submission of the accumulated charge(s). This means that accumulated charges may appear on the statement you receive from your card issuer.
Subscriber agrees that OON may submit charges for your usage fees and recurring subscription fee each month, without further authorization from you, until you provide notification (in accordance with the OON verification procedures, as may be established by OON from time to time in its sole discretion) that you have terminated this authorization or wish to change your payment method by executing the appropriate changes to the payment method on record in the account section of the Subscribers account management portal. Such notice will not affect charges submitted before OON reasonably could act on your notice. If you have any questions regarding any charges that have been applied to your account, you must contact OON Customer Support within 30 days of the charge date. Failure to use your account will not be deemed a basis for refusing to pay any charges submitted by OON in accordance with this Agreement.
If the Subscriber registers under a 30 Day Free Trial, the Subscriber will not be charged until the the next billing cycle following the end of the 30 Day Free Trial period. The 30 Day Free Trial period will commence on the date their service becomes active. If the Subscriber does not wish to continue service beyond the 30 Day Free Trial period, it is their responsibility to insure that their telephone number has been removed from the OON network prior to the end of the 30 Day Free Trial period. If the Subscriber’s telephone number remains on the OON network for ANY period of time following the end of the 30 Day Free Trial period, Subscriber will be charged for and agrees to pay the activation fee and one month of service.

In order for you to give termination notice to OON, you must select the Cancellation link provided in the change plan subsection of the account section of the account management portal found at htpp://ouroldnumber.com. Note that the Service is paid for in advance for a period of 30 days. Upon termination, regardless of the amount of pre-paid Service remaining, OON will provide no refund or proration of your monthly service and usage charges.

You will have access to your OON Services and account management portal until your paid monthly subscription expires on the next billing date when your account will be canceled per Subscribers submitted request.
In addition, OON reserves the right to suspend or terminate your service without notice upon rejection of any credit card or bank account charge or if your card issuer or bank (or its agent or affiliate) seeks return of payments previously made to OON when OON believes you are liable for the charge. If the Service is suspended for non-payment, OON may assess a fee of nine dollars and ninety-five cents ($9.95) as a service restoration fee to restore Service that has been suspended or temporarily disconnected. There will be a thirty (30) day restoration period during which time the Service may be reestablished by paying the service restoration fee. If the account remains unpaid after thirty (30) days, the Subscribers account will be scheduled for termination. If the account remains unpaid for sixty (60) days, the account will be terminated, the Subscribers number will be abandoned or, if an OON Number, returned to inventory.
After the initial restoration period, OON will retain your number for an additional thirty (30) days. During these thirty (30) days, and for a period not to exceed a total of sixty (60) days from the original date of cancellation, you may sign up for a new OON account with the same number after paying the Service Activation Fee then in effect.
Such rights are in addition to and not in lieu of any other legal rights or remedies available to OON. OON also reserves the right to take any action with respect to the Services that it deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion if we believe you or your usage may create liability for OON, compromise or disrupt the Services for you or others or cause OON to lose (in whole or in part) the services of OON suppliers.

OON shall have no obligation to maintain any messages or other content in your account or forward any unread messages to you or any third party.
Any termination of Subscriber’s account shall not relieve
Subscriber from responsibility for any amounts owing or any other liability accruing under this Agreement prior to the time that such termination becomes effective.

As such, any usage beyond what would be normal for residential landline service may be determined to be excessive. If OON determines that usage is excessive, it may charge Subscriber and Subscriber agrees to pay for any minutes in excess of 1000 minutes of use in any 30 day period. Further, if Subscriber is deemed to be using the service for other than normal residential service, it may immediately suspend service and provide notice to the Subscriber to remove their telephone number from OON’s network.
