Using the Handset

To place and answer calls with the handset, simply lift the handset. To change from handset to speaker, press SPEAKER and hang up the handset.

To place calls using the speaker, press SPEAKER and dial the number. When the party answers, pick up the handset. If the handset is off-hook with the SPEAKER button enabled, you can speak into it, allowing the calling party to hear you. This allows others to listen to both sides of the conversation.

Using Call Pickup

Call pickup allows you to answer a call that comes in on a telephone extension other than your own. When you hear an incoming call ringing on another phone, you can redirect the call to your phone by using the call pickup feature.

Picking Up Calls in Your Group

Call Pickup allows you to pick up incoming calls within your own group. When you activate Call Pickup, it automatically dials the call pickup group number associated with the line you selected on your phone. If there is a call coming in on another telephone number in that same group, the call immediately begins ringing on your line. If there is more than one incoming call in the pickup group, then you receive the first unanswered call. If there is no unanswered call in the group when you activate Call Pickup, your phone is placed back on hook.

Step 1 Press the LINE button.

Step 2 Press the Call Pickup button. (SPEED 1)

Step 3 Answer the incoming call that is redirected to your phone.
