SOFT KEYS #
These buttons are referred to as soft keys because the options change depending on the menu you are in. The home screen displays the following options:
The History soft key will take you to a list of your missed, placed, received, and forwarded calls. Use the directional pad to break down the list into individual categories or highlight an entry for more options. Within the history menu, the soft keys provide the following options: to go Back, Delete a history entry, see more Options (such as call details, add to your local directory, or add to blacklist) and Send.
The Directory soft key takes you to your system’s phone book, both company-wide (Remote Phone Book > Company Directory) or personal (Local Directory > All Contacts). Within the directory menu, the soft keys provide the following options: to go Back, Search within the phonebook, see more Options (such as contact details or add to black list), and Send.

Select the Menu soft key to access the phone’s basic settings. From here you can adjust various settings such as language, time and date, display options (such as backlight timers), and more.
INDICATOR LIGHT #
When the indicator light is flashing, you either have a missed call and/or a voicemail. Your screen will show a bouncing arrow icon for missed calls and a cassette tape or envelope icon for new voicemail messages. Simply check your call history and/or listen to the new voicemail(s) to clear the light and icon indicators.

SETTING UP YOUR MAILBOX
The first time you log into your mailbox, we recommend recording your name and personal greeting. The name recording is for the dial-by-name directory, so when someone enters the first three letters of your last name, it will announce your name recording. The greeting plays when your mailbox is reached by a caller. It is very important to make a custom message, as many callers will not leave messages at mailboxes that have generic greetings.
Your mailbox supports multiple greetings for different scenarios like business trips and holidays.
From your mailbox main menu, press 6 for greetings, and then press 1 to record an alternate greeting. When prompted for the greeting number, press 2 for your next alternate greeting (1 is your default greeting). After your recording is completed, select the active greeting by selecting option 3 in the greetings menu.
To access your voicemail either press the Message button or dial 5001. You will be prompted to enter your pin, then you will be provided with the following voicemail options:
