Question about AT&T 954 Corded Phone

3 Answers

When someone is on one of the lines, someone else in the office can press on the button to that line and listen and speak for a three way. What happened to the privacy feature? Also, when someone puts a caller on hold and the call gets picked up, the first phone still has it still one hold and it rings the warning ring.

    There is no "page 47" in the attached user manual. Could you tell me how to reset all?

The most common cause of this is default values for intercom number. Make sure that each phone is assigned a 2 digit unique intercom number. After a power surge or extended storage with no battery the phone may default to NO intercom number, meaning it does not recognize the line as "in use".

The other major cause of the "privacy" failure is pressing the line select button while on the call. This often done by accident when picking up a call from the hold cue.

When Joe is using Line 1 and talking to a customer, pressing the Line 1 selector will remove "Privacy" and allow all other extensions to pick up. There will be a confirmation of this feature with a soft single tone in the headset or speaker (only Joe can hear this, the customer cannot). Pressing the Line selector button again will return the "privacy" feature and will be confirmed by a double tone. If Sue has joined the call, when Joe turns privacy back on Sue will be dropped from the call.

The DEFAULT setting of "privacy enabled" will always be restored as soon as the call is ended.

There is no way to change the default value from Private.

This information is expanded from the entry on Call Privacy in the Lucent 0954 manual: Page 13. (works for 854, 874, 954)

Hello. Your phone system has been reprogrammed to permit this lack of privacy. Also, the first person to take the call has to transfer the call, not put it on hold. There is usually a person within your building assigned to manage the phone system. this person has the access codes necessary to reprogram the phone. Find out who that person is and speak directly to them if you think the reprogramming was done in error. I suspect that it may have been done to minimize the use of the phones for nonbusiness use. regards, Joe

I would recommend you "reset all" to factory settings first. then after reprogram each individual feature to your preferences again. Please download this pdf document, go to page 47 for instructions on how to do this.
Kind Regards

I lost my ear piece for my Plantronics Voyager 500A so I am trying to pair a new earpiece. How do I do this?


1. On the base, press and hold both speak volume fine adjust buttons until the blue talk/on line indicator light and red power indicator light (on the front of unit) start to flash.
2. On the headset, press and hold the listen volume adjust + button and call control button until the status indicator flashes red and blue.
3. Pairing is complete when the talk/on line indicator on base illuminates solidly, and the status indicator light on headset flashes blue.

Important: Make sure your headset is not connected to any other Bluetooth device when attempting to pair.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

All the calls we recieve in the office go through me. I greet the caller and then transfer them to the person they want to speak with. When I transfer a call, let's say to my boss, my boss will pick up...


Haven't you solved this yet? When we install a system, we reserve THREE buttons for voice mail functions. One is VM Transfer, one is 2 Way Transfer, and one is VM Record. In order you pick 3 buttons press PROGRAM one of the buttons and dial in order 94 500 STORE 01 500 STORE and 90 500 STORE, assuming your voice mail is on the default extension of 500. To send a call to someone's voice mail you press VMT and his DSS button or dial his extension and hang up. The outside party will get all of his greeting. If you want to prompt the user, like you would if you were taking a pink slip, you press 2W Transfer and his extension and carry on a conversation with the outside party. The message records in their mailbox as a new message. If you want to silently record into your OWN box, you press the VM Record button and your conversation is recorded into your own box as a new or old message, depending on how the system is set up.

There are other variations, including a single button transfer into someone's mailbox and some other features that are covered in you telephone sytsem OM or User's manual under Customizing your phone.

Can't find my manual. How do I get the messages off the phone, it's a Magicbox Logan three dect thingy.. Also how do you get a conference call happening?


Hi
To delete messages you need to first listen to them all on your machine via the BASE, then after all the messages have been played (which can be very boring) press and hold the DEL button. It will then ask you to confirm deletion by pressing OK. Not too sure about the conference call as mine does not have it. If however someone else in the same room wants to listen to the caller you can press the handsfree button (speaker icon) on BASE. If you want to speak to someone within your household in another room, you need to press OK on HANDSET, then press down to INTERCOM, press OK again and it will give you several options, INTERCOM ALL (where all available handsets can talk to each other), or HANDSET 1 or 2 to select a specific one. Hope I have helped and it does not sound too gibberish!

How to access messages remotely


While you are away from your home or
office, you can use a touch-tone phone,
or a pulse (rotary) phone with a pocket
tone dialer (available through your local
RadioShack store) to enter your PIN and
do any of the following:
• set the phone to answer or not
answer calls
• listen to your messages
• record a new outgoing message
• erase messages
• monitor the room where the phone
is located
Notes:
• You cannot remotely operate the
phone using its handset or another
telephone on the same line as the
phone.
• You can also listen to the message
recorded on Line 2 by making a call
to Line 1’s number (or vice versa).
USING THE TOLL-SAVER
If RING TIME is set to TS (toll-saver),
(see “Setting the Number of Rings” on
Page 15), the phone answers after three
rings if you have new messages (ones
you have not listened to). If there are no
new messages, the phone answers after
five rings. This gives you time to hang
up before the phone answers so you
can avoid unnecessary long-distance
charges.
Note: Toll-saver works only on the line
you called. If Line 1 has no new messages,
but Line 2 has one, the telephone
answers after five rings when you
call Line 1.
USING REMOTE
COMMANDS
Follow these steps to operate the phone
from a remote location.
Note: If you wait more than 15 seconds
between keypresses, the phone sounds
a long beep and hangs up.
1. Dial your phone number and wait for
the phone to answer.
2. If the phone is not set to answer
calls, it answers after about 10 rings
and sounds a series of beeps.
3. When the outgoing message begins
(or the phone sounds a series of
beeps), press #, then enter your PIN
within 2 seconds.
If the PIN is correct, the phone announces
the day and time, then it announces
the number of new and old messages.
The phone plays all new messages,
then beeps about every two seconds to
let you know it is ready to accept remote
commands.
Notes:
• If the phone does not respond, try
entering your PIN again. If you enter
an incorrect PIN three times, the
phone beeps and hangs up.
Remote Operation 27
• When the phone is operating from a remote location, it stops all answering functions
and rC appears on the display on the base. The phone resumes answering
functions when it is no longer in remote operation, if you have not turned it off.
• The remote playback of incoming messages is limited to 4 minutes. If you have
more messages after 4 minutes have passed, you must press # 2 again to listen
to the rest of the messages.
• When using remote operation, you can only delete the current message during
playback. You cannot delete all the messages stored at one time.
The following table shows the remote commands you can use.
Note: Remote operation stops when someone picks up the handset and presses either
LINE 1 or LINE 2 (whichever is flashing), or any phone on the same phone line.
Remote Commands
Press #
then (within
2 seconds:
Function
1
Repeat current message during playback.
2 Play messages.
3 Skip current message during playback.
4 Delete current message during playback.
5 Stop playback, recording, and room monitoring.
6 Set the phone to answer or not answer calls.
7 Record or stop recording a new outgoing message.
8 Play the outgoing message.
9 Switch to the other line (Line 1 or Line 2).
0 Monitor the room where the phone is located for 15 seconds
