which will be shown in the display in
the following ways:
-0 when no number is transferred
due to technical limitations, e.g.
international calls.
-1 when the call is from a withheld
number, e.g. an unlisted number.
You can record a “name” for each of
these codes so that the Phonebook will
state them when these codes are sent.
Please note that the “name” you have
recorded together with code -0 is also
the “name” that will be played if you
receive a call from a phone number
which you have not already stored and

Rejection of incoming calls
If you do not want to receive calls from
certain phone numbers, you can enter
these numbers in the Rejection list and
thus make BeoTalk 1200 reject the calls.
You may also transfer a number from
the News list or the Phonebook to the
Rejection list.
BeoTalk 1200 answers the calls
immediately before the phone starts
ringing, independently of the ringing
time that you have entered.
The call will be answered by an
engaged tone. The phone number of
the incoming call will be transferred to
the News list.
BeoTalk 1200 gives higher priority to
Rejection than to Group Announcement.
This means that a call from the number
will be rejected if the same number
exists in both lists.
