OptiGuide

The OptiGuide(TM) display provides information to help you use your phone. The top line, generally in all capital letters, shows the time and date and call-related information like the extensions calling you.

The second line, in initial capital letters, indicates some of the features available to your phone in its current state and provides prompts on how to use them. For example, when you are on a call, the prompt Start transfer appears, to let you transfer the call if you want. When the scroll forward symbol appears at the right of the display, more features are available for your phone's current state. The second line also presents call-related information.

You can also use the OptiGuide display to show features you have activated, scroll through messages sent to your phone, and change the audio settings on your phone.

Guidance Keys
The three large keys at the bottom of the phone are used to scroll through prompts and select features.

  • The scroll forward key is used to scroll to the next option.
