in your unit.
2. Your unit calls the transfer telephone
number.
3. Answer the call with the transfer
telephone.
4. Your unit will play the pre-recorded
transfer greeting message.
L You can record your own transfer
greeting message.
5. Enter the remote operation ID, and
retrieve the message using the remote
operation (page 64).
