Answering a call on a meridian phone can be determined in software by giving priority to the line that is ringing rather than the one that is configured on the first key key 0.you can have several lines on the phone and in this way when you lift off, the line that is ringing is the one that is answered automatically rather than having to press the actual key itself.so unless you are familiar with the s/w overlays it will be hard for you to change your current setup yourself

Pick up the handset and press a LINE button to select a line.

Norstar m7310 needs rls button pushed after every call


I've seen this many times; Check the Handset cable. It is probably plugged into the Headset connection on the phone.

Picking up and Haning up problems. "Rls" key "Line 1-4" keys


Can you sheck something for me; under your phone where the cables are plugged into, there are 3 types of jacks... 1 jack is to plug the phone into the wall 1 jack is to plug the handset into(picture of phone handset) 1 jack is to plug a headset into(picture of headset)
Check and make sure that the handset is plugged into the handset, and NOT the headset jack... and move the cables if that is the issue. Your problem sounds very familar to your handset being plugged into the wrong jack on the bottom of your phone, and it is more common than you think.

Well I'm on reception and when I put calls through sometimes the other person on the other line has to push the call to pick up.. It only happens every now again. Most of the time I put the caller on hold...


Save yourself some time and decide how you want to process calls. If you press the DSS button directly, the outside line will go on hold and the inside party is rung. When they answer, if you hang up, the outside held call is immediately connected. If the inside party hangs up first, the outside held call stays in hold.

I would use the procedure "may I tell him who's calling?" Announce the call to the inside party as "I have a call from so-and-so" If they accept, you hang up.

Now, if you have to locate the inside party, press HOLD, then dial the extensions, page, or use the DSS buttons to find them. Tell them they have a call holding on line such-and-such, and they would know that they have to select the blinking line.

Back in the day, I used to be the fastest PBX operator in the place, and I just installed them :-) The key was to send it to a station you knew wouldn't answer and it put it out in a holding pattern before it recalled. This was in the day when you could only hold 3 lines at a time, so it worked well when the board got swamped. Today, with colored lights and timed recall, you don't need to do that.

Call Park Issues..


Well to place a call on Park:
-> you should answer the call -or- be on a call
-> press FEATURE 7 4
-> then look at the display as it will give you a park number
Anyone can pick up a phone now, then dial that park number which you've seen - to answer the call.


To Transfer:
-> you should answer the call -or- be on a call
-> press FEATURE 7 0
-> then dial the extension you want to transfer to...
Now you can either stay on the line to tell the person who you are transferring and then hang up the phone -or- just hang up after dialling the extension to complete the transfer.
