Why donít numbers I return from the callers list connect?

When returning a call from an outside caller, you may need to first dial "9" on some phone systems. If this is the case, you must add the trunk pre-dial string at the front of the number by pressing the "EditNum" softkey.

Incoming calls are recorded with the area code attached, whether they are long distance or local calls. You may have to remove the area code from local calls in order to call from the Callers List, or use the Area Code option in the Options List to have local area codes automatically removed. Alternatively, you may need to add "1" before long distance numbers in order to dial long distance.

How do I set the time and date?

Ask your system administrator to make sure your extension is configured for MDMF Caller ID format. Then, the first incoming call will update the phone with the time & date from the clock in the phone system. Otherwise, use the Time/Date option in the Options List to manually set the time and date.

What if I accidentally delete the services on my phone?

If your phone is not loaded with any other Telco services, you should be able to restore the  features.

Press the ďServicesĒ button on the bottom right of the phone. A "Restore" softkey should be visible (the top right softkey beside the screen); press the Restore softkey and your services should be reloaded. If the Restore softkey is not visible, follow the instructions in your User Guide in the section entitled Screen and Softkey Setup.

How can I get the Softkeys back when they disappear after I hang up the phone?

Pick up the handset or press the speaker button: the softkeys will reappear. You can also press the Services key and select the service in the first slot. Please review the section of the User Guide entitled Overview of softkeys and Screen States.

Why doesnít the caller hear the on-hold music when I put them on hold?

Please make sure your system administrator has connected a music source to your phone system. Do not use the Hold button at the top of the phone as that will only place the caller on Hold at the phone set (similar to Mute). Use the Hold softkey to hold and the Back softkey to retrieve. Review the section in your User Guide entitled Handling Calls.

Why does the phone hang-up or drop calls intermittently when Iím on speakerphone calls?

Please ensure that the power adapter is secured properly to the back of the phone. Also make sure you have the cables connected to the phone through the base as described in the User Guide section entitled Physical Setup.

What should I do about discoloration on the display?

Discoloration on the LCD display is normal when you first take the phone out of the box. After you plug the phone into a power source, the discoloration on the screen should go away after a few minutes. If it does not, please contact your dealer.
