Positioning Your Speakerphone

You should adjust the position of the speakerphone on your desk or table to suit your individual needs and maximize the performance of the sound activated features. When using your speakerphone, the microphone and loudspeaker are farther from you than when you use a handset. Some positioning tips to consider include:

For the microphone to best detect your voice, speak within three feet of it and face the speakerphone.

Background noise may prevent the sound-activated switches from operating properly. Avoid placing the speakerphone where it will detect sounds from typewriters, keyboards, printers, paging systems, or other equipment.

Place the telephone on a hard surface and away from table edges. Do not place the telephone in corners or enclosures. Do not let obstructions come between you and the microphone.

Your telephone has an adjustable pedestal to allow you to select the most comfortable viewing angle. When you receive the telephone, the pedestal is in its lowest position—flush against the pedestal.

To adjust the pedestal,

1.GRASP the rear of the pedestal base firmly with one hand AND LIFT the rear portion of the telephone upward

Understanding The Large Screen Display

Your speakerphone has a large screen display consisting of six lines of 24 possible character positions per line. This provides you with much more system information than can be presented on two-line displays. This large display allows you many programming options as well as quick and easy selection of the many features available on your speakerphone. Your speakerphone has 13 interactive buttons for selecting or programming features.

When your speakerphone is idle, the first line in your display shows the day, date and time while the sixth line displays the word OPTIONS. If your system is using the voice mail option, this is also indicated in the sixth line by the word VMAIL. If your voice mail has four messages for you, for example, the VMAIL display is replaced by 4MSG.

Wednesday 19 11:36am

Lines two through four are used on the idle display to indicate features that may be active (flashing), enabled or set.

Answering Calls

Answering Intercom Calls

An intercom call is one that is made from one system telephone to another. Your station receives intercom calls in one of two ways depending upon system programming. In a voice-first setting, a short tone is followed by the caller’s voice heard on the speaker. With a tone-first setting, the telephone rings in a distinctive pattern and the user of the receiving station must take action to answer.

As with an outside call, your LCD screen displays the line number of the incoming call (e.g., L123) and any caller ID information that the ringing line is programmed to receive.

When you hear an intercom tone followed by a caller’s voice,

1.SPEAK toward the telephone to answer, OR LIFT handset if privacy is desired.

When you hear intercom ringing (two short bursts),

1.PRESS INTERCOM OR SELECT Answer.

2.SPEAK toward telephone OR LIFT handset if privacy is desired.

Your telephone may have the personal intercom number of another telephone appearing at a programmable button location. You can use the light associated with this button to monitor the status of that telephone, and you can press the button to make a call to that telephone if you wish. The associated light is known as the Busy Lamp Field (BLF) light, and the button is known as the Direct Station Select (DSS) button.

Answering Calls

Caller ID (Automatic Number Identification)

When installed by system programming, the Caller ID feature allows you to view incoming call numbers before you answer them. Incoming call numbers flash in the left half of the LCD. If the name of the calling party is available it will display in the second half on the right side of the LCD. If you answer the call, the number appears steady in the left half of the LCD.

The system also stores numbers that ring on your line but receive no answer. The system indicates that it has stored ring-no answer numbers by causing the programmed Caller-ID (CID) light on your telephone to flash. Pressing the CID button allows you to view the stored numbers one at a time. Pressing the programmed SAVED NUMBER REDIAL button causes the system to dial the displayed number. If the call has been returned by someone else, selecting the key reveals who returned the call. Everyone sharing your line can scroll through the stored numbers and choose which calls to return.

To scroll through ring-no answer numbers stored on your system (CID light is flashing),

1.SELECT the CID button on your telephone. Your LCD will display the calling number, date, and time the call came in. The most recent call appears first in the list.

2.SELECT the CID button each time you wish to display the next most recent ring-no answer call to your line.

3.To dial one of the numbers in the redial queue, SELECT the SAVED NUMBER REDIAL button. The system will automatically dial the number.

Depending on your system programming, when a call is returned it might remain in the ring-no answer queue or the system might delete it from the ring-no answer queue. Your system installer can tell you how the feature is programmed. If the system is programmed to leave a returned number in the redial queue, the display will show a “ ” next to numbers that have been returned.

To determine who viewed the number and returned the call,

1. DIAL .

Automatic Dialing

This feature provides oneor two-button speed dialing using programmable buttons at which you have previously stored numbers. Two levels of number storage are available at each storage location, and you can use one or both levels as needed. Further, since you usually store a line choice as part of a speed dial number, line selection is automatic with speed dialing.

There are two types of speed dial numbers: (1) numbers that you store for your own use (personal speed dial numbers), and (2) numbers that the system attendant stores for everyone’s use (system speed dial numbers).

To automatically dial a number stored at one of the programmable buttons on your station, choose one of the following:

1.PRESS programmed speed dial button, OR PRESS SHIFT AND programmed speed dial button.

To speed dial a personal speed dial number,

1.While on hook, DIAL speed dial number on dial pad ( to ).

To speed dial a system speed dial number,

1.While on hook, DIAL AND system speed dial number.

NOTE: If you are already on a line, you must press SHIFT before dialing the personal or system speed dial numbers that are stored at the dial pad. Also, if a speed dial’s preselected line is in use, the speed dial will not engage.

NOTE: On some systems, due to programming action, the available system speed dial codes are 100 - 299 and 100 - 599.
