Both Optiset E Standard and Optipoint 500 phones have a display and three navigation keys. The > and < keys will take you forward or backward to the next or previous option. The check mark key will select the option that is showing in the display. Please avoid experimenting with options that you are not sure about, as this may change the proper operation of your phone. Some convenient options are available to you to select from the display, and they will change depending on where you are in the calling process.
You probably have a NO DISTURB key (press to toggle ON/OFF). You can use this if you have people in your office and do not want the phone to ring it goes directly to voicemail. You can also use it when on vacation so your phone doesn't ring the caller gets to voicemail more quickly and will get your alternate (vacation) message if you have activated that in the voicemail system.
To forward calls to another extension, pick up the handset, hit FORWARD, enter the extension FOLLOWED BY THE # key. To remove the forwarding, leave the handset down and hit the FORWARD button.
All of these phones are speakerphones, meaning you can hear and speak with the handset in the cradle. The Optipoint 500 has a SPEAKER button if you start the call with the handset, you can switch to speaker by hitting the speaker button and replacing the handset. The Optipoint 500 also has a MUTE button, to close the microphone for people in the room to have a private conversation. Lastly, the Optipoint 500 operates such that speaking is allowed even when the other party is talking. The Optiset E has a speaker and microphone, but not the other features above (a call starting on the handset cannot be switched to speaker, no MUTE, and there needs to be a pause in speaking for the microphone to work).
SPEED DIAL is one digit dialing of frequently called numbers.

To change the RINGER VOLUME or PITCH (tone):
Calls to any numbers or to voicemail can be started with the handset still in the cradle, by simply starting to dial the number (or hit the phone mail button).

Once dialing is complete, you can pick up the handset (or leave it down for speakerphone operation).
