Hello again. Our mid has requested we send down a phone for his room. I plan on buying a wireless handset housed in a base that will accommodate several different mailboxes. Who pays for the calls?
All local calls are free (or do they charge us somehow? It may be part of the miscellanious fees that are deducted from our paycheck every month). Either way, he'll need a phone card for anything long distance.
He should have a cell phone as well. Cell phones are now considered good because they can be a life line if you're having problems off the Yard. They can't have them during plebe summer, but once the school year starts they are returned. Unless that has changed with the new management of course. Check with your mid.
