What if I don't know the password for my voice mail box?

The default password is your extension number. It is possible that you have no password; in which case, press "#". If these options do not work, your system administrator can change or erase the password for you.

How do I change the time and date on my phone?

Only the system administrator can change the time and date.

How do I program System Speed-Dial numbers?

Only the system administrator can program System Speed-Dial numbers.

How can I set the number of rings allowed before the call goes to voicemail?

Only the system administrator can change the number of rings.

How can I change the name displayed on my endpoint?

Only your system administrator can change the name assigned to extensions.

Why can't I recover my deleted messages?

After a programmed time of up to 24 hours, the system erases all deleted voice mail messages. If you attempted to recover messages within that time frame but were unsuccessful, the voice mail system may not have enough space to store deleted messages or your software version may not support this feature.

How can I scroll through the options on the display screen?

Press the low and high volume buttons to scroll down and up.

Why can't I program a speed dial number to the button I want? It keeps saying that the button is not programmable.

Your system administrator has programmed that button. You cannot override it.

When I try to use telephone company star codes (like *82 or *69) when using the OUTGOING button or the Outgoing Call feature code, they don't work. Why?

You must dial a Select Line Group number rather than using OUTGOING or the Outgoing Call feature code. If your system uses default Select Line Group numbers, dial 92001. When you hear the dial tone, you can use the desired star feature.

Why Can't I use ASR to enter my Email password?

For security reasons, you must use the dialpad buttons.

Why don't I get Email and fax messages in my mailbox?

Email reader must be enabled for your mailbox. Check with your system administrator to see if it is enabled.

Why do I not get the desired response when I try to complete a task by saying a command?

Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) may not be enabled on your system. If the voice prompts do not mention the option to say a command, ASR is not enabled.

What do I do if I'm getting an echo, distorted sound or choppiness on my calls?

Contact your system administrator. The Audio Diagnostics feature may be enabled on your system in which case, you will be provided with instructions on how to use the feature.

Why don't some of the features you mention in this guide work for me?

Your software version may not support the feature or the system administrator may not have enabled the feature. See your system administrator.
