Answer a call

When a call arrives at your 46XX telephone, you hear a ringing tone, and a blinking bell icon appears on the associated call appearance. In addition, call identification information will be displayed.

  • If you are not active on another call, answer the call with your handset, headset, or speakerphone.
  • If you are active on a call already, place the active call on hold, then answer the incoming call.
  • If the call appearance for the ringing call is not displayed on the current Home screen page, use the arrow keys 

    to switch between the pages. To return to page one of the Home screen, press Exit.

    When you locate the call appearance for the ringing call, press the corresponding call appearance button.
