It's the "MEM" key at the very bottom right.  I had the very same question and just found the answer at http://www.epinions.com/content_67070561924

 

(The last paragraph of the review gives the answer.)

 

When you hear the beep, press and release the MEM key.  The 2nd caller's phone number appears on the screen to indicate you've been connected to the 2nd caller while the first caller is put on hold. 

 

To get back to the first caller, press and release MEM again: the first caller's number will appear on the screen. 

 

I don't know if there's a way to see who the 2nd caller is without actually connecting to them.

COLD RESET DEFAULT


If you want to do a cold reset (clears all settings). Turn the printer off. Hold down the checkmark button and power unit on and wait until all lights on front come on and stay on then release. Use the up arrow button to move through the menu until display reads "cold reset". Press green button once more and printer will restart with cleared settings.If holding the green button while turning on does not work, try waiting until the memory count starts and then press and hold the green button until the three leds on the front are on.

How do you do call waiting on a KX-TG6523EB phone


If you have call waiting activated by your cell phone company [ you many times have to call them ans tell them to activate it].
Once you have the call waiting activated: there are several ways to activate call waiting.
1- You're in a call and hear the 'call waiting beep' - Simply push the TALK button or the button used for TALK on that particular phone.

If you make a call and want to put some one on hold for any reason simply hit TALK after they answer the phone.

Best of it

A resident in our skilled nursing facility has a Jitterbug phone. She told me she does not know what to do when she is talking on the phone and a "call waiting" signal indicates another call is coming in....


Hi,<br />When she sees/hears the "call waiting" signal, she can press the "yes" button to switch to the caller who's waiting (this also puts the first caller on hold).<br />Then, if she wants to switch back, she should just press the "yes" button again.<br />If she wants to end the call with whomever she's *currently* talking to, just press the "no" button.<br /><br />Also, you can go here to download a free guide to using the Jitterbug (in PDF format): <a href="http://www.jitterbug.com/phones/pdfs/HowToGuide.pdf"><i><span class="f"><cite>www.<b>jitterbug</b>.com/phones/pdfs/HowToGuide.pdf</cite></span></i></a><br /><br />Hope this helps!<br /> <br />Let me know if you have any other questions,<br /><br />

Message Waiting Indicator (MWI) light stays on since VoIP


There maybe different MWI options available in the phone's set up menu on the base unit. If so, see if the different options perform differently. Your phones are probably set to "FSK" (frequency shift keying) for MWI but IIRC, U-Verse uses the "Stutter" option. Also, in addition to talking to the installer, call ATT tech support. If the problem is in the signalling they may now have programming options on their end to resolve it.

Hell There, We have a "legacy" GE hands free kichen" phone model: 26730GE1-D Yes, I know it's ancient, BUT I did put a fresh, brand new battery in last week and it rings, when piucked up reads out...


Hi.

The calls are being placed on waiting, try using Flash button before using Talk.


Test the chance on a different phone line , the most likely is that the phone is defective.

If the phone is working on a different line, then it is a configuration problem, and the phone is waiting for a manual call transfer from a different phone in your network.


Try using Flash button instead of Talk, this will answer the call if there is a waiting service programmed.

Try testing with no other phone connected.

Finally try resetting the phone, use procedure below:

  • 1. Make sure the phone power is ON (but not in the “talk” mode by pressing the PWR button.
  • 2. Use the arrow buttons to scroll through the main menu until Handset setup is flashing.
  • 3. Press the SELECT button. A second menu shows on the display.
  • 4. Use the arrow buttons to scroll to Reset phone.
  • 5. Press SELECT.
  • 6. Use the arrow buttons to change NO to YES.
  • 7. Press SELECT to confirm.


If after resetting the calls are still being placed on hold, then again, the phone may be faulty.

Here a manual for your phone.

Handset won't work


I went through this exercise with a Siemens Gigaset 8800. The solution is to DE-register the handset first. Then register it with your base. This function can likely be accessed in the handset menu. The phone you purchased is apparently still registered to the previous user's base.

Can't find the button to answer call waiting - no flash button


usually one of the two keys under the display will do the trick. When the call comes in, look at the display above each of the "softkeys" It may say accetp, or switch. If not, try pressing end and talk as if hanging up and picking up again.

Key pad TALK button


I am sorry but while many phones can be opened with some common tools and a little dexterity, that phone model is manufactured and designed in a way where it cannot be opened by a consumer or even a gifted techie without destroying its integrity. It has no screws, and the method to open it without destroying it is completely based upon muscle memory and a specific tool. In addition, even if you were to open it without destroying the plastic you would clean the keys only to have them still barely work. I train technicians to open them, and I have to sit them down with bad ones that they can destroy to practice opening them without tearing them up. Once the plastic tabs that hold them together are busted, the phone won't stay together properly and then your costs just went up to replace the plastic once you finally get it to the repair facility. So the best advice I can give in this case is to send it in for repair so the keypad can be fixed and upgraded. If you go to the Siemens website, and reach the Gigaset area, look for the FAQs and they can direct you to a repair source. Their global site is pretty large, so if you get lost, you can google Siemens Cordless Repair to find a solution.

Could Not Save Call Waiting Setting


Hi Chad....I believe that applying the iPhone Update and Patch v1.0.1 will heal your phone. Begin by connecting your iPhone to iTunes, which is your only method of retrieval for this patch, and click on the Check for Update Button on the Summary Screen, and when prompted, select Download and Install. Be prepared for the possibility of what may feel like a lifetime to compelete. This Update is Proactive, meaning, it will continue to patch, and heal your phone, until every single flaw and or slight corruption is healed, even if it must update your phone to straight-from-the-factory default condition. (don't you just love that new phone smell?) Please update your post whether your results are positive or negative so that other contributors including myself are aware of your status and/or developments.....good luck my friend
