You can answer a call and have a hands-free conversation using the phone base. When there is an incoming call, the phone will ring and the Speaker button will start blinking. If you subscribe to Caller ID through your telephone service provider, the caller’s name and number will be displayed.

If you do not have Caller ID, then “ Caller Unknown ” will be displayed.

To answer a call from the phone base:

1. Press the Speaker button and begin your conversation. The Speaker button will stop blinking but still be lit up.

2. When you have finished your call, press the Speaker button again to hang up.
