  • Once you identified your support request, click on the hyperlinked name of that service request to open the record.
  • Here you will find the "Mark as Resolved" and you will also be able to enter a comment in the "Request Activity" section by typing in the open window.
  • Finish by clicking "Add".
  • To verify that your ticket has been resolved, your ticket should now display in the 'Resolved' tab on the View Requests screen.

How to review your support request ticket history
Windstream maintains support request history for 13 months. If you wish to keep records longer than 13 months, you will need to save a copy using the functionality provided in Windstream Online. To access and review your support history, please follow these steps:

  • Log in to Windstream Online (windstreamonline.com [40]).
  • Navigate to My Support Center > View Requests.
  • The default tab on this screen is "Open" tickets. To the right of this tab you have "Waiting", "Resolved" and "Closed" tickets. You can review and print or save any of these support request tickets at any time.
  • Note that if you would like to see the "Open", "Waiting", "Resolved" and "Closed" tickets related to all of your accounts instead of an individual account, you can select the "Show support requests for all accounts" checkbox in the Options section of the screen and then click "Filter" to apply this view.

How do I view the status and location the circuits associated to my account?

  • Log in to Windstream Online (windstreamonline.com [41]).
  • Navigat to My Support Center > My Network Map.
  • A separate window should open with a map view of the circuits associated to your account. Each circuit is represented by a pin.
  • If a separate window does not open immediately, use the "Click Here" link to activate and if this still doesn’t work, make sure your pop up blocker is not active for windstreamonline.com.

Service Disconnect

What is the difference between a partial and a full disconnect?
A partial disconnect is used when only select products or services are to be deactivated. A full disconnect deactivates all products and services.

Is there a charge to disconnect service?
Termination charges or Minimum Monthly Commitments may apply.

How far in advance can I request a disconnect?
Up to 45 days. It is important to note that we do not schedule disconnects on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays or on Windstream recognized holidays.

I am transferring my service to another provider. Should I disconnect the service first?
No. A request to disconnect your existing products and services should only be initiated when your new provider has completed their installation work to avoid any loss of service. This includes transferring/porting some or all of your telephone numbers. If telephone numbers have been disconnected you will not be able to transfer them to a new provider.

If I submit my written notification to disconnect on June 1, will my billing end on that date?
No. We bill out 30 days from the written notification date. In this instance, your billing end date would be July 1.

What is a Referral Recording? Am I required to have one?
A Referral Recording is a pre-recorded message that informs your callers of your new telephone number. It is not required, but is recommended when changing a main or frequently used phone number.

How long does the Referral Recording stay active?
You can select 30, 60 or 90 days. Charges may apply.

I can't find the circuit I want disconnected. Can I still submit a disconnect request?
Yes. You can manually add the information. On Step 4 – Select Products screen, click 'I don't see the products I want to disconnect.' and enter detailed information in the text field provided.
