These phones are 'Network devices' and you can log on to them using your staff username and phone PIN (until you change it, this is your 4 digit phone number). You then stay logged in until such time as you log out, or someone else logs in to it, so it's easy to forget how to log in - but here's how:
Find and press the 'Applications' menu button
Look to the screen, and using the 'Navigation' button, scroll down to 'Services' and then press the 'Softkey' labelled 'Select'. The navigation button is the centrally-placed 'Up/Down' toggle button, the softkeys are the four thin ones below the screen.
Log in using your staff user ID and your PIN, use the keypad.
Look for the softkeys and press 'Submit'. You should now be logged in.
Look to the screen, and using the 'Navigation' button, scroll down to 'Services' and then press the 'Softkey' labelled 'Select'. The navigation button is the centrally-placed 'Up/Down' toggle button, the softkeys are those below the screen.
If you're calling someone again, look for the 'Softkey' marked 'Redial'.
If you need to call someone and have the phone on 'Speakerphone' while it rings, leave the handset on the hook, use the keypad to dial the number and then use the 'Softkey' labelled 'dial'. When they answer, pick up the handset.
When you're talking with someone, using the softkeys, select 'Trnsfr' and dial the number you need.
You can either wait for the other person to answer before pressing 'Trnsfr' once more, or press 'trnsfr' immediately, in which case your involvement ceases (unless, from the Softkeys, you later select 'Resume').
Conference calls - bring someone else in on the conversation
It's easy to set up a call between several people. When this is done, the person starting the process 'Owns' the conference call - should they hang up, the conference call ends for everyone.
A conference call: the starting point
Ring the first person.
Once you're talking with them, alert them that you're going to create a conference call, using the softkeys, select 'More' and then 'Confrn'. This puts the original person on hold. You'll see the 'Hold' button flashing, they'll hear 'Hold music' ...
Now, bring in additional participants
Now that the existing person is on hold, phone the second participant.
When the second person answers, select the softkey marked 'Confrn' - to add them to the conversation.
To bring more people into the conference, just repeat these steps.
A note on hanging up ... if the person who has set up the conference call leaves it, the call drops for everyone ...
The first time you use Voicemail, the system will set it up for you - log in to it by pressing the 'Msgs' softkey and follow the prompts.
Access your voicemail
Using the softkey, press 'Messages'. Enter your password and press '#'. The system will then talk you through the menus.
Ditto, from outside the system
Phone yourself - while your greeting is playing, press '*' or phone the voicemail phone number (+44)) 1225 875600. Follow the prompts to log in to your voicemail box. Your voicemail ID is your 4 digit extension number, 'Password' is the voicemail password you set.
Change your voicemail password
To change your password, log in to voicemail and follow the menu to 'Setup' and then 'Personal settings', (if you're impatient, once you've logged in, key in 431) then follow instructions.
It's a really good idea to change this. Your voicemail password isn't the same as your phone PIN - though you can set it to the same number.
All before you, in this world, is smoke and shadows.All before you, in this world, is smoke and shadows. Words found on a door lintel in the garden of a house in the Cretan village of Argiroupolis. The lintel is a fragment from the city state Lappa, which occupied the same site. Fifteen hundred years later, when you use the web, from time to time you might well feel that the author was on to something. And if you work with particle physics, you'll know he was ...
