Answering Calls
Placing calls using the 480i CT cordless handset
Press the phone handset key to obtain a dial tone and use the Keypad to dial the number. You can also make
a call by pre-dialling a number. Pre-dialling lets you view a number before you dial. If the number is
correct, use the M key or press down the volume key to erase digits from right to left. You can also make
calls directly from the Directory.
Using a headset
The 480i CT cordless handset accepts headsets through the 2.5 mm audio jack on the bottom of the phone.
Contact your telephone equipment retailer or distributor to purchase a compatible headset.
ADTRAN recommends that users read and observe all safety recommendations contained in
the headset operating guides when using any headset.
2.3 Answering Calls
When a call rings at your extension, the Inbound Call screen appears. The line/call appearance light flashes
quickly for the incoming call.
When you answer the call, the screen changes to the Connected State menu. If you cannot answer the call,
depending on the setting at the system, the call is redirected, for example, to your voice mailbox, if your
extension is configured for that.
To answer a call
1 If you want handsfree operation, press the Pickup softkey or the line/call appearance button for the
incoming call.
2 If you want handsfree or headset operation, press the button for handsfree or headset.
The setting that you have selected in the Options List for Audio Mode determines whether the call
goes to handsfree or headset operation.

between mute and unmute by pressing the microphone button.
If you put a muted call on hold, the phone automatically takes the call off mute when you
reconnect to the call.
2.6 Conferencing
The 480i CT phone system supports up to three parties (including you) in a conference call. This is a 3-way
call.

5 If you do not want to add the new party to the conference, press the line/call appearance button for this
call.
This disconnects the new party, leaving the original call on hold.
To go back to the original call, press the line/call appearance button for this call.
6 If you want to add the new party to the conference, press the Conf button again.

handset back on-hook or by pressing the on-hook button.
Only the conference originator can send dual-tone multi-frequency (DTMF) or touch tone
dialing to conference parties. DTMF tones can be used to interact with voicemail systems
and automated attendants.
2.7 Transferring Calls
There are two types of call transfer: blind transfer and consultative transfer. A blind transfer transfers a call
to directly to another extension, and disconnects the call with the sender when the receiving party answers.
You can also consult with the person you are transferring the call to before you complete the transfer. For a
consultative transfer, remain on the line until the receiving party answers the call. After consulting with the
receiving party, you can either complete the transfer, or go back to the original call.
To blindly transfer a call to another extension
1 Make sure that you are connected to the call that you want to transfer.
2 Press the Xfer button.
3 Enter the extension number of the person to which you want to transfer the call.
4 If you decide not to transfer the call, go back to the original call by pressing the line/call appearance
button for the held call.
5 Press the Xfer button again to initiate the transfer.
The transfer will complete once the receiving party answers the call.
You can optionally drop out of the transfer before the receiving party answers the call (effectively
resulting in a true blind transfer), by selecting the line/call appearance button for the original inbound
call, and pressing the Drop soft key.
To perform a consultative transfer to another extension
1 Make sure that you are connected to the call that you want to transfer.
2 Press the Xfer button.
3 Enter the extension number of the person to which you want to transfer the call.
4 If you decide not to transfer the call, go back to the original call by pressing the line/call appearance
button for the held call.
5 Press the Dial soft key to initiate the consultative transfer.

telephone.
2.10 Forwarding Calls
The call forwarding feature on the IP phone allows incoming calls to be forwarded to another destination.

Call forwarding is disabled by default. You system administrator can enable call forwarding on a phonewide basis or on multi-line phones on a per-line basis. If you have configured call forwarding on an
individual line, then the settings for this line are used; otherwise, the phone-wide call forward settings are
used. You can have up to 9 lines configured for call forwarding.
The following are the modes you can configure for call forwarding:

transfer the call rather than putting the active call on hold.
If a person whose call has been parked then puts the call on hold, the person retrieving the
parked call will hear dead air or silence until the other party resumes the call.

Picking up Calls Ringing at Another Extension Using NetVanta Unified Communications Server Features
3.3 Picking up Calls Ringing at Another Extension
Ringing call pick up allows you to answer other ringing telephones, which means that you no longer have
to run to answer another person’s telephone. You can divert a ringing call from another telephone, typically
within earshot, to your own telephone to answer.
To use ringing call pick up, you must know the extension of the phone that is ringing.
This feature also allows for night bell support. Many small companies have an audible bell that rings after
business hours. Night bell support can also allow employees to contact security after hours. This feature
can allow employees, for example on manufacturing floors, who are not stationed at a particular desk to
answer any telephone.
To use ringing call pick up, your phone must be configured to receive incoming calls. Make
sure that such features as call forwarding and do not disturb are not enabled on the phone.
To answer a call on another user’s phone
1 When you hear a phone that you want to answer, dial *78<Extension>.
Make sure that you dial, on your own phone, *78 plus the extension of the phone that is ringing.
2 If the phone has stopped ringing by the time you dial the *78 code, the system prompts you to enter
your pickup ID.
If the pickup ID that you enter is invalid, the system prompts you with “That is not a valid
pickup ID,” and asks you to enter a valid pickup ID.
3.4 Using the UC Server Conference Bridge
UC server has the ability to support a limited-sized conference bridge application. The number of
participants is limited to the number of licenses available, however additional conference expansion
licenses can be purchased. Use your SIP phone during the conference to access several options, such as
muting or adding participants.
To access the conference bridge
1 From an internal telephone, dial 7050.
You can also dial 7050 to access the conference bridge from the dial by extension or dial by
name directory.

3.5 Queuing Calls
Call queuing allows callers to remain in a queue while they wait for their call to be answered. If callers
know the queue number, they can dial directly into the queue.
The company agent is typically associated with a particular area of expertise, for example, sales or support.
A support agent who is ready to answer calls can log into the support agent queue and receive support calls
in order of arrival. Call queuing allows calls to be distributed evenly among the agents that are logged into
the queue.

temporarily stop accepting queued calls, without logging out of the queue. You can manually set your
status to unavailable to prevent accepting further incoming queued calls, without logging out of the queue.
Temporarily setting your status to unavailable does not change your "longest idle" position in the agent

the time since your last call, including the time that you were unavailable.
To set your agent status to unavailable
1 Dial *83.
