Re: NEC Directory Button on DTU phones
You should have soft keys in the display. If you look in the display and see words at the bottom of it, than the keys under each word will do the function it says. One should say DIR, this is the directory key and should show caller id, or one should say cid. You can prgram a scroll key but need to know how to enter program mode and program the feature. ldtsnj.com

depends on the type pf system. Do you have a coib installed in the system? Is caller id setup or programmed? If there is no mif card in the switch you cannot save caller id info. It only shows up when the phone rings and while on the call. There should be a directory key that you can price to scroll through the numbers if everything above is correct. ldtsnj.com
You can pull the card out hot. The KMM chip is IC6 toward the connector at the back of the card. The other requirement, if you have the KMM chip, is that Caller ID be enabled for your MIFM card. It is done through system programming. You can turn it on by these key sequences. Follow this EXACTLY from a display phone (start idle):
<Feature>, #0*8974, press <Line 7> button, press <Line 3> button, press *, 4,01, <Transfer><Speaker>. Test again. One other item, MIFM firmware 5.0 is required for 50 call storage. If firmware level is lower, you will only get 10 call storage. If all the above fails, you will need to call a certified NEC technician to check it out.
Your system needs to have a mif-m card and kmm chip installed and all programming setup in order to scroll through the caller id. If this is all setup you can hit the directory button and than use the arrow buttons under the display to scroll. ldtsnj.com
the directory key is storage for caller id. dtr80 is not the type of system but the type of phone. The system needs to have other components like a mif card in order to store caller id. Also if your phone does not ring with incoming outside call than you will not get caller id.
you need to know where or what mailbox the directory is recorded in. If you are using the generic one that does spell by name, than you cannot change it. You need to have the new employees setup their mailboxes and add themselves to the directory. ldtsnj.com
If it is in the system speed dial directory you have to go one by one and type "Feature, Redial, bin # where it is stored (system 00~79, station 80~99), Feature". This should wipe each Speed Dial listing.
If it is in the voice mail unit you may want to go phone by phone and log into the box. You will need to redo the following:
Personal Greeting Recorded Name Spelled Name Directory Listing Security Code
All these options are listed in each mailbox through a series of soft keys. Let me know if you need more info.
