About the answering system
To screen a call at the handset:
If the answering system and call screening are on (see Call screening on
page 70), you can hear the announcement and the incoming message with the
handset when a call is answered by the answering system.
Options while a message is being recorded:
Press qCID/VOLUME or pDIR/VOLUME on the handset to adjust the call
Press OFF/CANCEL to temporarily silence the call screening.
Press MENU/SELECT to temporarily turn on the call screening if call
screening is set to off.
Press /SPEA�ERSPEA�ER to broadcast the announcement and the incoming
message through the speakerphone. Press again to turn off the speakerphone.
While screening a call, you can stop recording and speak to the caller by
pressing PHONE/FLASH or /SPEA�ERSPEA�ER on the handset or /SPEA�ERSPEA�ER on
the telephone base.
Press q/VOLUME/p on the telephone base to adjust the ringer volume
when the telephone is not in use.
You hear a sample of the ringer while adjusting the volume. The telephone
base shows Ringer off when you set the volume to 0.
Temporarily turning off the message alert tone
If the message alert tone is turned on, the telephone base beeps every
10 seconds when there are new messages. Pressing any telephone base
key (except /HANDSET LOCATOR) temporarily silences the message
If you press X/DELETE when in idle mode to temporarily turn off the
message alert tone, there is a voice prompt directing you to press X/DELETE
again to delete all old messages. The message alert tone is temporarily off.
Only press X/DELETE a second time if you wish to erase all old messages in
your answering system.
The message alert tone resumes when you receive another message.
