Use these instructions when upgrading the Firmware ROM in your Cordless Telephone Base Unit. The 910i new ROM in your upgrade kit is a static-sensitive component. Be sure to follow the instructions below carefully. Failure to follow proper anti-static precautions could damage your new firmware.
The cordless phone allows for the connection of an optional keyset phone. The system can be programmed so that the keyset and/or the 910i Cordless Telephone rings. If there is no answer, it can then transfer to voice mail. This allows you to have a key- set phone to use while at your desk, and when you need to be away from your desk, you can carry the cordless phone with you.
System Programming The following system programming is suggested for the best operation of your cordless phone: Programming - i-Series System In program 0004 - Automatic Extension Circuit Type Setup: 1. Have the system automatically set the circuit type for each extension (the cordless phone is identified as circuit type 1). In program 1006 - Programming Functions Keys (or SC 851): 1.
Troubleshooting Troubleshooting Procedures If your phone is not performing to your expectations, please try these simple steps. If you are still unable to resolve the problem, contact your communications manager. Problem Suggestion Charge light won’t come • Make sure the AC Adaptor is plugged into the desktop charger on when the handset is and wall outlet.

Section 2 Features In this section Page Basic Operation .....2-5 Using the Handset ....2-5 i-Series Features .
Basic Operation Basic Operation Operation of the phone is performed using the handset out of the desktop charger. The exceptions are charging the handset bat- tery and transferring a call to your desk phone.

Using the Handset When you pick up the handset and press TALK, you will see: When communication is made between the base unit and the handset, you will see:...
i-Series System Outside Calls ☞ Function keys are normally line keys, but you can program them for other features. In this user guide, the feature assigned to a function key appears in parentheses next to the words FUNCTION KEY. For example, FUNCTION KEY (Hotline) means press the function key set for Hotline.
Outside Calls i-Series System Converting from Pulse to Tone Dialing If your company is in a Dial Pulse area, you may need to change the dialing mode of your phone to tone (DTMF) after you place your initial call.

i-Series System Hold Hold Hold places your call in a temporary waiting state until you can get back to it. While the call waits, you can process calls or use other features. And don’t worry if you forget about the call and leave it on Hold too long -- it will recall back to you. Your telephone system provides four types of Hold (see the chart below).
1. If your telephone rings, TALK. The Autotalk feature of the 910i Cordless Telephone allows a call to be answered without pressing TALK if the handset is lifted out of the Desktop Charger. To hang up, either press TALK or place the phone back into the charger.

Account Codes i-Series System Account Codes Account Codes are codes you enter that help keep track of outside calls. There are three types of Account Codes: Optional, Forced and Verifiable.

i-Series System Call Forwarding Automated Attendant (VAU) This feature requires a Voice Announce Unit (VAU).
