Dial the number where you want your calls forwarded to. When the call is answered Call Forwarding Variable is enabled. To disable the feature go off hook and dial *73.

(Your existing call is placed on hold). Dial the third party. When ready to connect everyone together press the hookswitch again to begin the three-way call. When the originating party hangs up, all parties are disconnected.
Auto Callback – If you receive a busy signal when calling someone, hang up for a few seconds. Then go back off hook and dial *66. The system will try to reach your party for 30 minutes. Once the party is available your phone will ring. Answer your phone and you will be connected to the other party.
Auto Recall – Dial *69 to have the system read back the number of the last incoming call. Follow the instructions to automatically call the number back.

Do Not Disturb – To block all incoming calls dial *78 to enable this feature. When ready, dial *79 to disable it.
Call Transfer – To transfer a call to a second number, flash-hook and dial the second number. Wait until you hear ring back. At this point you can then hang up either before or after the second number answers and the call will be transferred to their line.
Call Hold – To put the current call on hold so that you can dial a second number, hit flash-hook, dial *52, and dial the second number. You can then hit flash-hook again to switch back to the first call (putting the second call on hold), and again to switch between the two numbers.
