PCS Digital Telephones

Digital telephone feature buttons:
Both display and non-display telephones have 20 Flexible Programmable Buttons (Flex Buttons). These buttons may be programmed with any station in the system, any CO line on the system, or almost any feature.

PCS Digital phone

In addition to the 20 Flex Buttons, the telephones have 8 fixed feature buttons as follows:


Used for transferring calls to a station or hunt group.


Places calls on hold for later retrieval either at the current station, or at a different station. When a call is on hold, the lamp of the button corresponding to the CO Line will blink. If it is blinking green, then the call was put on hold by that station. If it is blinking red, then the call was put on hold from a different station.


The Clear button is used to set the telephone back to an idle state. If you were in the middle of programming a feature, the process will be cancelled. If you are on a call (intercom or CO Line), the call will be disconnected. This will not affect CO Lines that are on hold.


Used to program the features.


Adjusts the volume of the current state of the phone: If the phone is Idle, the button adjusts the volume of the ringer. If the phone is in Speakerphone mode, the button adjusts the volume of the speaker. If you are using the handset on a call, the button changes the volume of the incoming voice through the heandset. In all cases, the settings are saved, so you will not have to reset the volume before every call.


Mutes the microphone (either the speakerphone or the handset) until the mute button is pressed again, or the call is disconnected.


Speakerphone allows you to talk hands-free to the other party (intercom or CO Line).

PCS Digital

The Display Telephone has 3 "Soft" Buttons that are located below the display. These buttons are used for ease of programming. The display will show you the purpose of each button, depending on the screen you are on. For instance, your display may read:

STA    10    BUSY
cbck       msg         next

In this example, the three soft buttons are available as follows:
Left: Leave a Call Back message
Center: Leave a custom text message
Right: Go to the next set of options.

These menu items may be different for each feature of the phone. In general, the following buttons are used for many features:


Returns you to the previous menu selection


Use this to delete the previous character entered, and move back (like the backspace of a computer keyboard)


When you are able to enter digits or letters, this wil erase the whole string entered.


Advance to the next menu selection.


Saves the current settings


Displays the settings of the feature displayed.
