Call Forward (All Calls) allows you to forward all calls for your phone to the number
you enter. Calls will not ring at your phone and will be sent to the number you
entered as the forward destination. If your telephone has a display, it will show that
your telephone is forwarded. You can forward calls to an IP or non-IP phone.
If your phone does not have an indicator showing that the phone is forwarded, then
it will emit one short ring or “ping ring” when a call comes in to the phone. The “ping
ring” is provided to remind you that your phone is forwarded to another number.
NOTE: If an incoming call is marked “Urgent”, then the call will not be forwarded.
Calls forwarded to an external number (7 or more digits) that are unanswered will
roll over to voice mail (if available) at that number. Calls forwarded to an internal
number (4-digit to 6-digit extension) that are unanswered will roll over to voice mail
(if available) for the called party (not the forwarding destination).

Muting a Conference Call
Only the moderator of the meet-me conference call can mute (disable the ability to
speak in the conference) all parties in the meet-me conference call. The moderator
also has the ability to un-mute (restore conversation).
The Mute function is toggled from the keypad by pressing *5 to enable or disable

announcement that the conference has been muted.
Once Mute is enabled (before or during the conference call), anyone joining the
active conference will be muted as soon as they are connected to the conference
call. Callers joining the conference when mute is in effect hear an announcement
that the conference is muted after the announcement that the conference is active.
Members of the conference will hear the join tone and the caller’s name.

Music on Hold
Your telephone provides crystal clear voice conversations. However, if you listen to
music on hold, you may notice that some types of music sound slightly distorted.
This is normal. The FrameMaker system has been optimized to transmit and
receive speech; music contains a variety of sounds that are considerably higher
and lower in pitch than the human voice, so some of these musical sounds are not
included in the audio signal.
Mute
Press the Mute button ( ) to turn off the speakerphone/handset microphone
during a conversation. This way, you can converse with someone else without the
party on the phone hearing the conversation. Press and hold the Mute button again
to turn the speakerphone/handset microphone back on.

Privacy Guard
Privacy Guard is a call screening service that works with Caller ID to identify all
incoming calls that have no Caller ID, such as calls that are Anonymous,
Unavailable, Out-of-Area, or Private. It forces callers to identify themselves by
entering an access code or recording their name in order to complete the call. You
will know who is calling and have four options for handling the call.

Access Codes
Access Codes
Privacy Guard provides the ability to create two kinds of access codes that you can
give to family members, friends or business associates to allow them to identify
themselves if they call and their caller ID is not available. You decide who gets
which code.
For phones with a display, access codes are shown on the display as shown:
Privacy Guard (<access code>)
The Access Code is a 3-digit code that, when required, is entered followed by the
# key. There is only one Access Code.
The Selective Caller List is a list of up to ten codes. Each code must be 10-digits.
When required, a caller enters the code followed by the # key.
NOTE: When creating the codes for the Selective Caller List, you want codes that are
easy for the caller to remember and use. If the code will be used for an individual,
you might want to use the phone number most commonly used by that person. If it
is for a group of people or a business, use a number that will be easy for them to
use and you to recognize, such as a main business number.
Caller Actions
When Privacy Guard is enabled, calls that do not have any Caller ID information
are automatically answered and the caller hears an announcement followed by a
series of prompts.
The announcement explains you do not accept unidentified calls and that their
Caller ID information was not received. They are instructed to do one of the
following:
•
•
Press 1 to enter an access code.
Press 2 to record their name so that the call can be announced, .
If they enter anything other than the menu options, they will be prompted two more
times to enter a valid menu option. If they do not select a valid option in the allowed
time, the call is dropped.
Entering an Access Code
If a caller presses 1, they are asked to enter an access code, which can be either
the Access Code or one of the codes in the Selective Call List, followed by the #
key. A prompt tells them to wait while the call is completed.

Privacy Guard
If an invalid access code is entered, the caller will be prompted two more times to
enter a valid access code. If they do not enter a valid access in the allowed time,
the call is dropped.
Recording a Name
If a caller presses 2, they are asked to record either their name or their company
name and press the # key. After playing the beep, the system will record up to 5
seconds.
When the user presses # or the recording time ends, a prompt tells them to wait
while the call is completed.
The system records whatever is spoken during the 5 seconds, which can be either
the caller’s name or silence. If the caller does not record a name, no name will be
spoken when you answer the call.
Answering Privacy Guard Call
Once a caller has entered an access code or recorded their name, the call will ring
on your phone. If you have a display and receive caller ID information, you will see
“From Privacy Guard” on the display. If the caller entered an access code, the
access code digits will be displayed also.
If the caller entered an access code, your telephone rings normally and you are
connected to the caller when you answer the call.
If the caller recorded their name, your telephone rings with a priority ring. When you
answer the call, a prompt is played that announces the call and offers the following
options:
•
•
•
Press 1 to answer the call.
Press 2 to play an announcement to the caller that you are unavailable.
Press 3 to transfer the caller to voice mail.
NOTE: Option 3 will be available if you have a voice mail button on your telephone for
your voice mail mailbox or for another voice mail mailbox, such as the main
number (attendant phone) or another person’s mailbox (executive assistant
phone). However, if you do not have your own mailbox and choose this option,
you will get reorder (fast busy). If you do not have a voice mail button on your
phone, this option is not available.

Remote Phone
The Remote Phone feature provides the capability to set up a remote phone to act
as if it were your VoIP phone. Instead of placing and receiving calls from your VoIP
phone, calls are made and answered from the Remote Phone.
For example, if you configure your cell phone to be your remote phone, all calls
coming into your VoIP phone would ring at your desk and on your cell phone
simultaneously.
For this feature to be available, a Remote button must be provided on your VoIP
phone by your service provider. However, the VoIP phone does not have to be in
service for the Remote Phone feature to be operational.
WARNING
If you dial an emergency number (such as 911) from the remote phone
while it is in remote mode (the phone will be playing on-hold music),
an announcement tells you that number is not allowed from Remote
Phone and advises you to hang up the phone and try again. Until you
hang up the phone and disconnect from the Remote Phone feature,
you will receive the announcement.
There are two ways to enable the Remote Phone feature:

Web Portal Setup of Remote Phone
The remote phone feature can be activated via the Web Portal by selecting
Options > Remote. You must check the box labeled Enable Remote User, then
enter the phone number of the remote phone (for example, a cell phone or hotel
phone number).
From the Web Portal, you can check a box to Enable Remote Caller ID. When
checked, the caller’s Caller ID will display on your remote phone display (if it has
one). When unchecked, your IP phone number will be displayed. This way, when
you see your own VoIP phone number on the Caller ID, you will know that it is an
incoming remote call.
You can also set the number of seconds the phone will ring unanswered before the
call is redirected to voice mail or other destination.

disconnect your current remote phone call.
In the Web Portal, when the Auto Enable When Phone OOS checkbox is
checked, the system will automatically enable Remote Phone and route calls to the
Remote Phone number when the phone is out of service. The Remote Phone
feature will not be auto-enabled until a call arrives after the phone has been
declared out of service. If a call arrives at the phone before the Call Agent has
determined the phone is out of service, the Call Agent will send the call to the No
Answer destination. As soon as the Call Agent determines the phone is out of
service, the Remote Phone feature will be automatically enabled and all further
calls will be sent to the Remote Phone number.
When the phone with Auto Enable When Phone OOS checked returns to service
after the outage, Remote Phone is not disabled. Both the phone and Remote
Phone will ring for each incoming call. The user must disable remote mode using
the Web Portal or by pressing the Remote button on the phone.
Deactivating Remote Phone via Web Portal
To completely deactivate the Remote Phone mode, you must uncheck the Enable
Remote User checkbox on the Web Portal or press the Remote button on your
VoIP phone.
If you just hang up the remote phone, it will disconnect the call, but Remote Phone
mode will still be enabled. The next call coming in to your VoIP phone will ring the
remote phone.
Feature Interaction: Remote Phone with Find-Me
The Remote Phone mode works in conjunction with the Find-Me function that will
transfer the call to each phone you have listed in your Find-Me list. When your
VoIP phone is in Remote Phone mode, and you have Find-Me set up, first the call
will try ringing the remote phone. If it is not answered, the Find-Me function takes
over and will try the next numbers in your Find-Me list.
If you set up Remote Phone from the Web Portal, and you do not answer so FindMe takes over, then Remote Phone mode will remain enabled and the next call
coming in will also ring the remote phone.

You can access the voice mail system on your phone by dialing *09 or by pressing
the Voice Mail button.
System settings determine the number (and length) of voice mail messages that
are stored in your voice mailbox. If supported by your system, callers can press “0”
while they are “in” your mailbox to transfer to your main number or operator.
The voice mail system also provides both personal and group distribution lists
which let you send a voice mail to a defined group of people as easily as sending
a voice mail to a single user. Combining the ability to compose a voice mail
message before sending it with a distribution list, you can easily create and send a
voice mail message to multiple users or lists.
NOTE: The voice mail system can only save a certain number messages as configured
by your service provider. If the maxium number of messages is reached and you
receive a new voice mail message, it will not be stored. You must delete some old
voice mail messages to receive any more.

What You Receive on Your Pager/Cell Phone
•
E-mail pagers can accept text-only e-mail messages.
You may choose to be alerted:
•
•
Each time you receive any voice message.
Only when you receive a message marked as urgent.
What You Receive on Your Pager/Cell Phone
Numeric - You receive the numbers you entered in the Pager Info box; when you
set up the pager option with the system administrator. The number could be a code
that means something to you.
Voice - when you answer the page, voice mail plays a welcome announcement
followed by a request for the account password. Enter the password and listen to
the normal voice mail menu options. If the voice message is marked as "Urgent",
the first voice message you receive is the urgent message.
When someone leaves a voice mail message on your phone, the system
immediately dials your pager or cellular phone. The system tries to reach you every
five minutes, up to three times if you don’t answer. If you take the call, but you don’t
enter digits at the prompt, the system acts like you never answered the call and
continues trying to reach you as stated above. If you have caller id, your “office”
phone number/name is displayed as the caller.
E-Mail -The message you receive, reads as follows:
Subject: Voice Mail from calling party
Body: the text entered by the system administrator (i.e. Please call me! I need to
talk to you.)
NOTE: If the system administrator left the body text empty, you get as the body: calling
party called you on “date” at “time”.
Managing Distribution Groups
Voice messaging distribution groups can be created as either personal or corporate
groups. Up to 20 personal groups can be created by individuals for their own use
while up to 70 corporate groups can be created.
Corporate (customer) distribution lists are created by an administrator or a user
with access to a customer’s main number voice mail box and are available for use
by all of a customer’s users. By default, corporate group number 10 in each
customer partition is named “Everyone”, includes all mailboxes within a company
and is available to all users. The “Everyone” group is updated whenever a mailbox
assigned to the customer partition is added or deleted.

System settings determine the number (and length) of voice mail messages that
are stored in your voice mailbox. If supported by your system, callers can press “0”

message before sending it with a distribution list, you can easily create and send a
voice mail message to multiple users or lists.
NOTE: The voice mail system can only save a certain number messages as configured
by your service provider. If the maxium number of messages is reached and you
receive a new voice mail message, it will not be stored. You must delete some old
voice mail messages to receive any more.

Receiving Pager Notification
The T6000 system provides the ability for you to be alerted on your mobile phone
or pager that you have received a voice message. You must set this service up with
your system administrator or via Web Portal.
Mobile devices support different types of alerts:
•
•
•
•
Basic numeric pages accept only keypad phone digits (1-0, * and #).
Cell phones support voice streaming.
Some cell phone models can receive text-only e-mails.
E-mail pagers can accept text-only e-mail messages.
You may choose to be alerted:
•
•
Each time you receive any voice message.
Only when you receive a message marked as urgent.
What You Receive on Your Pager/Cell Phone
Numeric - You receive the numbers you entered in the Pager Info box; when you
set up the pager option with the system administrator. The number could be a code
that means something to you.
Voice - when you answer the page, voice mail plays a welcome announcement
followed by a request for the account password. Enter the password and listen to
the normal voice mail menu options. If the voice message is marked as "Urgent",
the first voice message you receive is the urgent message.
When someone leaves a voice mail message on your phone, the system
immediately dials your pager or cellular phone. The system tries to reach you every
five minutes, up to three times if you don’t answer. If you take the call, but you don’t
enter digits at the prompt, the system acts like you never answered the call and
continues trying to reach you as stated above. If you have caller id, your “office”
phone number/name is displayed as the caller.
E-Mail -The message you receive, reads as follows:
Subject: Voice Mail from calling party
Body: the text entered by the system administrator (i.e. Please call me! I need to
talk to you.)
NOTE: If the system administrator left the body text empty, you get as the body: calling
party called you on “date” at “time”.

Set Up Outlook for TAPI
This chapter explains how you can set up and use Microsoft Outlook to use TAPI
to dial phone numbers using your telephone. Information includes the following:
•
•
•
•
Using TAPI to call from Outlook
Installing the TAPI 2.1-compliant support software
Configuring Windows so that Outlook can use TAPI
Configuring Outlook to use the VocalData telephone number
NOTE: Although Outlook is used as the example, this information can also be applied to
other TAPI-enabled applications.
Using TAPI to Call from Outlook
Once you have configured Outlook or another TAPI-enabled program to dial using
the system, you can place calls through your telephone from the application. You
must be connected to the same network that your phone is connected to for TAPIenabled dialing to work with your phone.
This example uses Outlook, but other TAPI-enabled programs will be similar. The
application documentation or online help should have information on making calls
using the TAPI functionality.
To place a call from Outlook, use the following steps:
1.
Start Outlook (if not already running).
2.
Click the Contacts icon to switch to the Contacts listing.
3.
Right click on the contact you wish to call to bring up the Actions pop-up
menu.
