IMPORTANT: Auto Supplies Replenishment (ASR) requires device connectivity. If a device loses connectivity, auto supplies replenishment will cease and the customer will need to place manual supplies orders. Once connectivity is reestablished, the process for automatic delivery of supplies is re-initiated in Europe with no further customer intervention. In US and Canada, automatic replenishment of supplies will resume once a manual order (phone or web) is placed  after reconnection. For questions regarding ASR, contact your regional metered supplies help desk.
