    Additional details:
    • On an  OLOF with a Service Address Information section, you will need to validate the service address in order to submit the form, even it you have already validated the address when you saved the form earlier.
    • Account numbers pre-populate in the Customer Account Number list.
    • Primary contact information defaults to displaying your username profile information.
    • Some OLOFs may give you different fields, depending on the action you select. For example, the TDM Voice Toll Free OLOF for a disconnect will have fewer sections, because it only needs a list of toll-free numbers that are to be disconnected.
