Introduction
This AT&T Small Business System is expandable to a 16-extension telephone
system. The 1080 telephone is compatible with 1070 and 1040 telephones.
For details, see the Installation Guide. This system is not compatible with any
other AT&T 4-line small business telephones, except for the 1070 and 1040
telephones.
The 1080 telephone is hearing-aid compatible and can be connected to
four incoming telephone lines. This telephone features a speakerphone for
handsfree use and a headset jack compatible with most two-band 2.5mm
headsets (sold separately). There are two additional ports, known as AUX jacks
or data ports, available for connecting the telephone to another device such
as a fax machine or modem.
The 1080 enables paging, intercom, and call transfers between system
telephones and is capable of connecting three parties in the same conference
call.
This telephone also features a 32-number one- and two-touch memory for
faster dialing and has a directory that can store up to 200 additional numbers
with names.
This telephone has a caller ID feature that supports caller ID with call waiting
service. (Caller ID services are subscriber services available from many local
telephone companies for a fee.)
Your 1080 telephone also features a built-in digital answering system that can
store approximately 60 minutes of messages, memos and conversations or
a total of up to 99 messages. You can access the answering system from a
remote non-system touch-tone telephone or from another system telephone.
This 1080 telephone is equipped to function as an Auto Attendant in a multitelephone system. An Auto Attendant telephone can pick up and redirect
incoming calls to other extensions in your telephone system. You can assign
more than one Auto Attendant for your telephone system. For details, see the
Auto attendant operation section (pages 59-63).
The 1080 telephone is compatible with Centrex service. Centrex is a special
subscriber service that might be available from your local telephone company
for a fee. If you subscribe to Centrex service, refer to the Centrex operation
section (page 88).
This user's manual contains detailed instructions for using your AT&T Small
Business System 1080 telephone. Please read this user’s manual before using
this 1080 telephone.

About caller ID
This telephone has a caller ID feature that works with caller identification
service provided by your local telephone company. There is a fee for this
service, and it might not be available in all areas. This telephone can provide
information only if both you and the caller are in areas offering caller
identification service, and if both telephone companies use compatible
equipment.
When you use this telephone with caller ID service, you can see who’s calling
before answering the call. If you subscribe to caller ID with call waiting, a
combined service available through many local telephone companies, you can
see who’s calling even when on another call. This service might be called by
different names (such as caller ID with visual call waiting) by different local
telephone companies and might not be available in all areas.
NOTE: You must subscribe to combined caller ID with call waiting as a
single service to see caller ID information for a call waiting call. Check with your
telephone company for its availability.
The format of telephone numbers displayed depends on the home and
local area codes you set (See the Area codes section on page 42 of the
installation guide for explanations and setting instructions of area codes):
• If the call came from within your home area code, the screen displays only the
seven-digit number (without an area code).
• If the call came from one of your local area codes, the screen displays 10 digits
(area code plus the seven-digit number).
• If the call did not come from any of the area codes you set, you see the
following:
– Phone numbers with 10 or more digits automatically have a 1 inserted and
displayed before the number.
– Phone numbers with fewer than 10 digits are displayed without a 1.

About the auto attendant and message recording
If you want one or more of your 1080 telephones to automatically answer
incoming calls for your system, to announce the directory, and to enable your
callers to record central system messages, you need to customize AUTO ATT
SETUP. See page 46 of the installation guide.
If a 1080 extension is an active auto attendant and it is answering or directing
a call, playing or recording an announcement or message, the LINE light
flashes sequentially (page 6). To interrupt the auto attendant, press the
flashing LINE button on this 1080 telephone to talk to the caller on that line,
or press any other LINE button to disconnect this call and make a new call on
another line.
If you want one or more of your 1080 telephones to record messages directed
to the individual 1070 and 1040 telephones, you need to customize AUTO
ATT SETUP and SYS EXT MAILBOX. See pages 46 and 52 of the installation
guide.
To turn on the system answering features for private messages, to control the
answering system functions, and to control the timing, security, and what can
happen while messages are being recorded, you need to customize SYS EXT
MAILBOX and DTAD SETUP. See pages 52 of the installation guide and 65 of
your user’s manual.
Incoming messages
If this 1080 telephone is not set up as an auto attendant, it stores only private
messages.
If this 1080 phone is an auto attendant, it can also store three kinds of
messages on three separate lists, private messages, central messages or
system extension messages.
You must playback or delete each list separately. Play private or central
messages by pressing [DTAD] and scrolling to PRIVATE MSGS or CENTRAL
MSGS, pressing [ENTER], and then scrolling to PLAY NEW MSGS or PLAY
ALL MSGS, and pressing [ENTER].

Auto attendant operation
About auto attendant operation
The auto attendant feature only works with a multi-phone system. If this
phone is the only telephone in your system, DO NOT select auto attendant
for this phone.
A 1080 telephone assigned as an auto attendant automatically picks up and
redirects an incoming call from a shared outside line to another phone in the
same system.
An auto attendant can only answer one call at a time, so you might want
to have more than one auto attendant in your system so that even when a
call on one line is being answered, a second auto attendant telephone can
answer another ringing line. You can designate up to 16 auto attendants in
your system. (See Using multiple auto attendants on page 61 for further
information.)
Refer to page 46 of the installation guide to make a 1080 system telephone
an auto attendant. See pages 46-51 and 65-73 of the installation guide to
set its auto attendant answer delay time, operation time and record system
announcements (day, night and directory announcements).
NOTES:
• Only outside calls are answered by an auto attendant.
• The auto attendant phone does not answer calls when the phone is being
used for setup, message review, call history review, or a phone call.
• If there are multiple auto attendants in the same system, you must select
different AUTO ATT DELAY settings for these telephones. The delay
settings must be at least three seconds, see page 49 of the installation
guide.
• After the auto attendant answers, if the caller does not enter an extension
number or a command, the auto attendant automatically transfers the call
to Extension 11. Please make Extension 11 a 1080 telephone and an auto
attendant.
• If an auto attendant is active, adjust the delay times for different features
to let the auto attendant system answer outside calls. The answering system
answer delay time (ANSWER DELAY, page 66) of all 1080 telephones in
the same system must be longer than the auto attendant answer delay time
(AUTO ATT DELAY, page 49 of the installation guide).

You might wish to set one or more additional
phones to act as auto attendant(s) when the
primary auto attendant is turned off or busy.
An auto attendant is busy when someone at that
extension is doing any of the following:
•
•
•
•
•
programming the phone
accessing messages
on an intercom call
dialing from the directory or call history
using any of the lines to make or answer a
call
• when the DTAD is recording a message at
that extension
You can choose a particular extension to always
be the primary auto attendant by setting that
extension to have the shortest auto attendant
pickup delay and setting the pickup delays of
other auto attendants in the order you choose. If
the auto attendant pickup delays are the same,
incoming calls might be distributed randomly to
the auto attendants.
61
Auto attendant operation
Auto attendant sequence for callers
When you set this phone to be an auto attendant, it automatically picks up
a ringing line after the pickup delay time you programmed (see AUTO ATT
DELAY on page 49 of the installation guide), and plays the appropriate auto
attendant announcement.
When a caller enters a correct extension number after hearing the
announcement, the auto attendant transfers the call to that extension and
announces to the caller, “Calling that extension. Please wait.”
The auto attendant continues to monitor the call after it is transferred. If the
extension has a 1080 system extension mailbox, the mailbox answers and can
record an incoming extension message. If neither the requested extension nor
its mailbox picks up within 45 seconds, the auto attendant announces, “That
extension is not answering. Enter a new extension number, or, to leave a
central message in the general mailbox, please dial nine.” The auto attendant
tries to transfer the call up to five times. If the call is not picked up by any
extension during those attempts, the call is dropped.
NOTES:
• If someone at the requested extension picks up the call and subsequently
places the call on hold again, that extension must pick up the call again within
20 minutes or the call is dropped. The twenty minutes restarts each time the
same call is placed on hold.
• If the memory is full or the auto attendant is turned off on the 1080 system
extension mailbox, no extension messages can be recorded in the 1080
system extension mailbox. The message counter DTAD: XX/YY flashes on all
its system extensions.
If the caller presses [0] after hearing the message, the auto-attendant
directory plays. The caller can then decide whether to enter an extension
number or not, and the auto attendant responds as described above.
If the caller does not enter an extension number after hearing the
announcement, the auto attendant waits about 12 seconds, then transfers
the call to extension 11. If the call is not picked up after 45 seconds, the auto
attendant answers the call again, and plays “That extension is not answering.
Enter a new extension number, or, to leave a central message in the general
mailbox, please dial nine.” and wait 12 seconds for the entry. If the caller still
hasn't entered an extension number after hearing this message five times, the
auto attendant announces, “That extension is not answering. Thank you” and
drops the call.
If the caller enters an invalid extension number, the auto attendant
announces, “The system does not recognize that extension. Please check it,
and enter it again.”

If this 1080 phone is an auto attendant, it can store
three kinds of messages in three separate lists:
• Private messages (including incoming messages,
memos and two-way conversations) are the
messages recorded for the 1080 telephone itself
(pages 73-76).
• Central messages are the incoming messages
recorded for the auto attendant system (pages
79-80). Callers press [9] to record messages to
the auto attendant.
• System extension messages are the messages
recorded for individual 1070 and 1040
telephones that are associated with this
set’s auto attendant mailbox. For more details on
system extension messages, refer to the 1070 or
1040 user’s manual.

Auto Attendant: A 1080 telephone in your multi-telephone system is
assigned to pick up a ringing line automatically after the selected number
of rings. The Auto Attendant plays the selected auto attendant message and
redirects the call if the caller enters an extension number. You can assign up
to 16 Auto Attendants in your telephone system.
Caller ID: Caller identification is a subscriber service available from most local
telephone companies for a fee. When you subscribe to caller identification,
you can see who’s calling before answering the phone if you and the caller
are both in areas offering caller ID service with compatible equipment.
Caller ID with call waiting: This is a single, combined subscriber service that
might be available from your local telephone company. If you subscribe to
this service, you can use your 1080 telephone to see who’s calling even while
on another call (as long as your caller is in an area with caller ID service and
both telephone companies use compatible equipment).
Central message: When the auto attendant answers a call, and a caller
presses [9], a central message (not intended for any particular extension) is
created.
Centrex service: This is a special subscriber service that might be available
from your local telephone company for a fee. This 1080 telephone can be
used with Centrex service.
COVM: Central Office Voice Mail is a subscriber voice message service that
might be available from your local telephone company. This service might be
called by another name in your area (e.g. call answering).
DND: When activated, the Do Not Disturb (DND) feature prevents interruptions
during a call.
DSL: Digital subscriber line (DSL) service is available from your telephone
company for a fee. It enables you to receive high-speed Internet through your
telephone line(s). Some special equipment, splitters and/or filters, are required
for the telephone and data service to work properly together.
DTAD: The Digital Telephone Answering Device is a sophisticated, tapeless
answering system built into the 1080 telephone. In some installations,
messages for your phone can be recorded on a 1080 in your system.

Home area code: This is the area code for your telephone number. Users
simply dial the seven digits of a telephone number to make a call within their
own area code and 11 digits outside of their area code. If this applies to you,
you should enter your own area code into the telephone as the home area
code. After setting, if you receive a call from within your home area code, the
screen displays the last seven digits of the telephone number.
You might, however, live in a region where you must dial 10 digits (area code
and telephone number) for calls within your own area code. If this applies to
you, enter 000 for the home area code and enter your area code as a local
area code. After setting, if you receive a call from within your area code, the
screen displays the 10 digits of the telephone number.
For details, see the Area codes section (page 42 of the installation guide).
Line group: A group of system telephones sharing some lines within a multitelephone system.
Local area code: Most users dial 11 digits to make calls outside their home
area codes. If this applies to you, you do not need to program any local area
codes.
However, if you dial only 10 digits to make calls to some areas outside your
home area code (without dialing 1), then set these local area codes on the
telephone. Up to five local area codes can be set. For details, see the Area
codes section (page 42 of the installation guide). After setting, if you receive
a call from one of these local area codes, the screen displays the 10 digits of
the telephone number.
Mailbox: A place to store answering system messages. The 1080 phone can
have separate mailboxes for private messages, central messages, and system
extension messages.
Memory loss protection: Even if the telephone has no AC power or battery,
all programming and messages are retained.
Navigation keys: These are the buttons you use to program your 1080 phone
and for scrolling through feature options ([ENTER], [ ], [ ], [ ], [ ]).
Prime line: This is the line on the telephone you assign to be selected
automatically when you lift the handset, press [ SPEAKER] or press
[HEADSET] to answer or make a call.

attendant. If the 1080 is not an auto attendant, or if it has a private line, or
if the ANSWER DELAY is shorter than the AUTO ATT DELAY, and if DTAD
SETUP ANSWER STATUS is on, callers leave a private message.
System extension message: This is a message recorded for an individual
1070 or 1040 telephone that is associated with a 1080 phone’s auto
attendant mailbox (pages 52-56 of the installation guide).
System telephone: Any 1080, 1070, or 1040 telephone in your telephone

headset is poor.
• Unplug it and firmly plug it in again.
I hear other calls when
using the telephone.
• Disconnect the telephone base from the
telephone jack. Plug in a different telephone.
If you still hear other calls, the problem is
probably in the wiring or local service. Call your
local telephone company.
• Make sure you are using the round black cords
that came with the phone. These cords help
prevent crosstalk (hearing other calls).
My caller ID features are
not working properly.
• Caller ID is a subscription service. You must
subscribe to this service from your local telephone
company for this feature to work on your
telephone.
• The caller might not be calling from an area
that supports caller ID.
• Both you and the caller’s telephone companies
must use equipment that are compatible with
caller ID service.
• Make sure the area codes are set correctly
on the telephone (page 42 of the installation
guide).
• Reset the phone. See Common cure for electronic
equipment on the next page.

105
Appendix J
Troubleshooting
Common cure for
electronic equipment:
• The caller might not be calling from an area
that supports caller ID.
• Both you and the caller’s telephone companies
must use equipment that are compatible with
caller ID service.
• If your phone is currently in use and a new call
comes in, you must press the [ ] to see the
new call. This procedure enables you to see call
waiting caller ID and caller ID from other lines
on the phone.
• Make sure the telephone line cords were
provided with the telephone.
If the telephone is not responding normally, try
resetting the phone. Do the following in the order
listed:
1.Disconnect the power to the telephone base.
2.Disconnect the spare battery (if the set has
one).
3.Wait a few minutes before connecting power to
the telephone base.
4.Re-install the spare battery (if the set has one).
5.Wait for the telephone to synchronize its
connection. This might take up to one minute.
The answering system
does not answer at the
correct time.
• For private messages, make sure the answering
system is on. Select ON in ANSWER STATUS
(page 57 of the installation guide).
• If Toll Saver is activated, the number of rings
changes to eight seconds when there are new
messages waiting (page 66).
• If you subscribe to the Centrex service provided
by your local telephone company, make sure
the ANSWER DELAY time (page 66) is shorter
than the CSL DELAY RING time on the same
telephone (page 75 of the installation guide).
• If a 1080 extension is on a phone call, or
recording, or playing any type of message or
announcement, it does not answer incoming
calls.
The outgoing
announcement is not
clear.
• When recording the announcement, make sure
you speak in a normal tone of voice about nine
inches from the front of the telephone base.
106
Appendix J
Troubleshooting
• If HEADSET is selected in the AUTOMATIC
MODE menu and a headset is connected on the
telephone, you need to speak into the microphone
of the headset to record the announcement
(page 39 of the installation guide).
• Make sure there is no background noise
(television, music, traffic, etc.) when recording.
The answering system
does not record
messages.
• Make sure the answering system is on (page 57
of the installation guide).
• If the memory is full, the system announces
"Memory full" and then hangs up. You need to
delete some old messages in order to make
room for new messages.
• If GREETING ONLY is selected in the MESSAGE
LENGTH menu, the answering system only plays
back the outgoing announcement. It does not
record incoming private message (page 68).
• If you subscribe to the Centrex service provided
by your local telephone company, make sure
the ANSWER DELAY time (page 66) is shorter
than the CSL DELAY RING time on the same
telephone (page 75 of the installation guide).
Some messages on the
answering system are
cut off.
• If a caller reaches the maximum recording
time you set for each message (page 60 of the
installation guide), the system disconnects and
part of the message might be lost.
• If the caller pauses for more than seven seconds,
the system stops recording and disconnects the call.
• If the memory on the system becomes full
during a message, the system stops recording and
disconnects the call.
• If the caller’s voice is very soft, the system
might stop recording and disconnect the call.
• If the DTAD INTERCEPT feature is on and
another telephone answers the call on that line,
the message stops recording (page 69).
• If HEADSET is selected in the AUTOMATIC
MODE menu and a headset is connected on the
telephone, you need to use the headset to hear
messages (page 39 of the installation guide).
• Press [ VOLUME] on the telephone base to
increase the volume.

The messages on the
system are very difficult
to hear.
Appendix J
Troubleshooting
The answering system
does not respond
to remote access
commands.
• Make sure you are using the correct remote
access code (page 67).
• Make sure you are calling from a touch-tone
telephone (away from home). When dialing
a number, you should hear tones. If you hear
clicks, then it is not a touch-tone telephone and
cannot activate the answering system.
• The answering system might not detect the
remote access code when your announcement
is playing. Wait until the announcement is over
before entering the code.
• There might be interference on the telephone
line you are using. Press the dial pad keys firmly
when dialing.
The auto attendant does
not answer after the
correct number of rings.
• Make sure that there is an auto attendant
telephone (page 59).
• Make sure the answering system answer delay
time (ANSWER DELAY, page 66) of all 1080
telephones in the same system are longer than
the auto attendant answer delay time (AUTO
ATT DELAY, page 49 of the installation guide).
• If you subscribe to the Centrex service provided
by your local telephone company, make sure
the CSL DELAY RING time (page 75 of the
installation guide) is longer than the AUTO ATT
DELAY (page 49 of the installation guide) and
ANSWER DELAY time (page 66) on all system
telephones.
• Only the calls from the public lines (shared
lines of all system phones) can be answered by
the auto attendant system.
• If all auto-attendant extensions are being used,
the system cannot answer incoming calls.
The auto attendant
announcement is not
correct.
• Make sure the day/night announcements
are set up and recorded (pages 66-68 of the
installation guide).
• Make sure that the DAY and NIGHT times that
you entered are appropriate. See DAY/NIGHT
TIMES, page 50 of the installation guide.
