If the ringing line is programmed into one of your dss/blf buttons it should answer when you lift the handset. Else, if it is someone else's phone ringing, lift your handset and dial 40. That will only work if allowed in the pbx programming. Hope that helps.
You have to check DIL in the 400 series on the 1232/816. This may be done by TRUNK GROUP or Line number. So if it is line one doing this, simply find Day DIL and if it asks for line number place 01. It will show an extension number typically 165. Hit the transfer button then hit the store button. Now this can also be done under intercept with the rings set to 1 ring. That is in the same area and the procedure is the same. You should first find what TG the line is in first, then do this. Now I am sure you want the VM to answer at some point so I would place that in the intercept Day and Night and set it for say 4 rings. By the way, these particular settings are not normally customer settings. I may also advise you to contact someone who can quickly make the changes for you. To contact me direct, call 585-216-5066.
Press the MESSAGE button. It will light the lamp on the receiving station and when they press MESSAGE it will show that you called.
If you're trying to program "voice mail", then there are specific instructions to setting Call Forward No Answer or just dialing into the VM sytsem and dialing #6 and their extension to leave a direct message.
It depends on how it's forwarded. If you're talking intercept ringing IRNA, then it's system program 203. If you are looking at CF-No Answer, it's programmed in system programming 619 for each extension, or by default in program 202.
These features require a Programming Manual and Installer access to the SYSTEM programming.
From each phone, press PROGRAM 99 and the INTERCOM or CO buttons TWICE, then dial 1-8 and STORE. (default is 2). You can now make each line and intercom different, or each phone (up to 8) different. After you finish with each phone, just pick up and drop the handset back into the cradle to end programming.
Go back to that original 7433. Beg, borrow, or steal one of those phones from someone else and plug it back in. Have someone call you on the intercom and make sure the AUTO ANS button is not lit. Does it ring? Now plug in your 7453 and do the same thing. Does it ring?
I think I only had one or two of those models and the ringer is a two step switch (3 positions) OFF LO HI on the side of the phone. Make sure it's set to something besides OFF.
If the phone rings on intercom but not on the outside lines, that's a different problem.
Let's see if I understand you correctly. You want to lift the handset and automatically have it pick up line 1 to make an outside call but it's picking up your last phone line first (example: line 8 if you have 8 lines)
This feature cannot usually be changed unless you restrict what lines the specific phone is allowed to use. This is because there is always a chance that a call is coming in but it has not had a chance to ring yet. In an office environment where people are constantly using the phones people would end up answering calls more than you think before the call had a chance to ring. The phone system would think the line is still free. Systems are set up to use the last available line to drastically reduce the chance of that happening.
