I have the 8 button phone and if you hook up your headset the right way you just have to press the line/feature access key all the way to the right instead of picking up the receiver. Keep the headset on all the time and just press that button to answer or hang up the calls. It works great! ( I have the Dterm80 telephone)
I am currently using the Plantronics Telephone Headset System S11 (Staples CDN $130) with my NEC Dterm 80 telephone system. It works well but until I program the feature option, I still have to lift the handset to answer the phone via the headset. Kind of defeats the purpose.

Have a coworker call your extension to see if DND is on, they will go straight to voicemail or get a fast busy. Speaker 42 may be the default cancel DND code, depending on your system and whether the codes were changed. Anyway, ringing is set up in system programming. If someone calls your extension it will likely ring, but outside calls have to be assigned to ring in system programming. Usually need a tech to do the programming since it gets complicated very quickly.
First and foremost we need to know what system you have. Then we can proceed with how to program the button.
NEC Elite 48, 192, IPK 1
First pick the button you want to program. Lets say button 13 in this example. Next check to see if that button is programmed by pressing Feature and that key. If that key says Vacant then it is available for use.
Next you will need to hit "Feature and 4" on that station to find the port #. Port # is Tel 10 for example. That means port 10 is where your extension resides.
Now type in "Feature, #, 0 *, 8974". The phone should say Program Mode. Now look at the Line Keys. These are the keys right above the # pad. Count from left to right 4 keys. Hit Line Key 4 and then type 12 on the dial pad.
Now that we are in key programming we need to enter the port of your phone. Make sure the blinking cursor is on the far left. If not press * to move to the left. Now enter 10 (port 10 or Tel 10) on the dial pad. The cursor should be right near the L. If not then press # to move to that position on the right. Remember * will bring you back to the left and # to the right.
This is where you are to enter the key #. In our example it is key 13. Dial 13 on the dial pad. Next we are going to change the key to a headset key by pressing "Recall, Line key 3". It should say H Set on the right. Now that you have the proper key set you need to hit transfer to write the programming. Remember to try and find a key that is not programmed, this will ensure that you don't undo any programming that is already in place.
Any other system other than the NEC 48, 192 or IPK 1 will not work.
Sure you can do it. as long as the headset has a plug for the handset your fine. Plug it in and you will have to pick up and hang up the handset as needed. The headset key eliminates you having to pick up and hang up the handset to answer with the headset.
For the DTU phone on an NEC Elite system:
Memory Block 4-12
put in the port number and the Lkey of the extension you want to make a headset key.
Programmin on a 16button phone, Lkey 11 needs to be lit and will display H SET to verify.
For the DTP phone, it is generally on an NEC 2000, which is entirely different.
