Screening Calls (Auto Disconnect Feature)
When a call comes in the answering system rings the number of set times, plays the
greeting, and records the incoming call.
You may screen incoming calls by listening as the caller leaves a message. If you
want to talk to that caller, pick up any extension phone.
Auto Disconnect tells the answering system to stop playing the greeting or recording
a message when an extension phone is picked up. Sometimes you may pick up the
phone and the machine keeps playing the greeting. This is normal. If you want to pick
up the phone while the greeting is playing, wait about two seconds after the system
answers before picking up the phone.
If the greeting continues to play after picking up an extension phone, press and
release the STOP/SET button.
