OPERATION

Receiver Volume Control

The Receiver Volume Control can be adjusted for a comfortable listening level. The switch has variable volume positions.

Redial

The telephone always stores in memory the last phone number dialed. To dial the same number again, lift the handset and press REDIAL .

Erasing Redial

For privacy, you can erase the redial memory. Lift the handset, then press any digit (1-9).

Mute

Hold down MUTE to turn off the handset microphone. You can then talk privately to someone else in the room without the person on the phone hearing you. You will still be able to hear the other person, but anything you say will not be heard. When you release the button, your caller will again be able to hear your voice.

Ringer Volume Control

The RINGER switch allows you to turn the telephone ringer OFF, or set it to ring at LO or HI volume. You can dial or answer calls normally when the ringer is off. Other telephones in your home will still ring; they are not affected by the switch.

Temporary Tone Dialing

Temporary tone dialing is used only when you have rotary service. This is useful if you need to send tone signals for access for telephone banking or long-distanceservices.

To change from pulse (rotary) to tone dialing during a call:

1. With the Dial Mode switch set to DP (dial pulse), dial a telephone number.

2. Press TONE* ; all buttons pressed after this will send tone signals.

3. After you hang up, the phone automatically returns to rotary service.

IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY

If you have difficulty operating this phone, try the suggestions below.

No Dial Tone

Make sure all plugs are connected properly. Inspect the line cord connections at the modular jack and at the telephone. Also inspect the coiled handset cord connections at both ends.

Unplug the telephone and connect it to another modular jack. If it still does not work, try another telephone; if neither telephone works, the problem is not in this telephone. The trouble may be caused by local telephone company lines, central office equipment, or the wiring in your home.

Calls Cannot Be Dialed, Or Are Dialed Slowly

This product comes set in the tone (TT) mode. Make sure you choose the correct dialing method (TT/DP); touch tone dialing will not work if you have dial pulse service.

Telephone Does Not Ring

Make sure the RINGER Volume switch is not set to OFF.

If there are several other phones on the same line, try disconnecting some of the other telephones. Having too many telephones can also create problems such as low ringer volume or impaired quality during calls.
