We have provisioned a temporary number of 417-319-1372 that rings the University Operators who can transfer your call to any MSU party. If you are an AT&T, Mediacom, or Cricket customer or if you always receive a busy signal when calling any MSU phone number, please call our Operators at 417-319-1372 instead of using the permanent number of 417-836-5000. They will help you reach your intended party.
We have escalated this issue with both AT&T and Windstream. Windstream currently provides inbound telephone service to MSU and we have received reports that at least some other Windstream customers are experiencing the same issues of always receiving busy signals.
If you cannot reach our Operators at this temporary number, please email Telecommunications@missouristate.edu or Mark.Harsen@missouristate.edu. All information is welcome regarding this AT&T/Windstream problem and it could aid in a faster resolution.
