Your phone may have access to 2, 3, 4, or 5 digit “internal” dialing to reach another party by their internal extension. To call these other extensions, simply dial the extension number. Your phone will automatically dial once the correct number of digits has been dialed. To dial an external number, dial the local seven digit phone number, or 1 + area code + seven digits for a long distance or toll-free number.
To place a call, you can do one of the following:
- Pick up the handset
- Press the speakerphone button
- If you have a headset plugged in to the headset jack of the phone, you can press the headset button
- If your phone has multiple line or call presence buttons defined, press the one that you wish to use if it is not already selected
Then dial the appropriate number. Some phones may wait a few seconds to see if you are going to dial more digits before placing the call. If you wish to cause the phone to stop waiting, you can press the DIAL soft key or press # to indicate that you have finished entering digits.
