GOCare FAQs

1) What is GOCare?
GOCare is a mobile account alert platform proactively delivering account information (statements, balance, due date, payment confirmation, appointment reminders, and more).  Information can be initiated by either Orbitel  Communications  or the customer with the use of “KEYWORDS”.  More information can be found at our website at http://www.orbitelcom.com/support/go-care

2)  Will I constantly be getting messages from Orbitel?
No. Orbitel Communications will send customers 3 - 5 messages per month: (1) statement is available; (2) balance amount & date due; (3) a payment confirmation (when payment is posted); and if necessary (4) your payment is due (and/or past due). Messages may also be sent on irregular events (outage notifications or appointment confirmations) if applicable.  Messages will be sent between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.  No text messages will be sent after 10:00 p.m.  However, customers may initiate any of these inquiries at any time by using the keywords.3) Will you sell my information to others? No. Orbitel  Communications protects its customers and their account information and will never sell or share it for any reason.  You will only get text messages from Orbitel  through the GOCare service.

Orbitel  Communications does not charge for GOCare.  Customers’ mobile service provider may charge the mobile user to send/receive text messages depending on the terms of their mobile account.
