Samsung DCS 40 Prostar

How do I assign a DID number to a phone local and a local trunk group created in program 601?

  • Phoney Guy Jul 31, 2008

    The Samsung Prostar DCS 40 I don't think was out for very long. The 7100 to 7400 series came shortly after it.

    I had created a station group in 601 of a cordless set and a keyset, and wanted to assign a DID number to that group. Program 714 seemes to be the right one, but I don't see how to assign the number to the station group.

Could you repost your question and tell me the type of phone system you have, you say it is a DCS 40 Prostar but I do not recall the 40, only the 408, 612 and 816. also MMC 601 is for station groups and 603 is for trunks. I'll be glad to help if you can clear this up for me. Thanks, .....Mike

    You are on the right track, assign the DID Digits under say 005 then assign 005 to ring the station group you set up. so it should look something like this:

    DID DIGIT ( 005 )

    DGT: 1234

    DID DIGIT ( 005 )

    1:5XX 2:5XX

    Let me know if this makes sense to you, if not we will try again. Good Luck. .....Mike

How do I turn the ringer on the phone. We have 5 phones in the office and only one rings. Is there a way to turn a ringer on all 5 phones so we can hear incoming calls from all offices?

Hi, you need your main telephone number to ring at a group ie 500, then you need to add the extensions to that group, I will try to explain;

With your handset down press TRANSFER - 200 - 1234 - 1 - SPEAKER KEY

Then dial 714, use the volume key to find the phone number required, the using the 3rd little soft key under the screen find the 1 or DAY destination type in the group number .

Then press speaker and go to 601 and add the members to the chosen group, I have uploaded a video explaining how to do this step. Go to for more training and programming tips.

I have a prostar samsung 816 plus and we have a number of phones in the office and only one is ringing, how can I make them all ring? I have followed the instructions in the manual and the following...

Hi, have you checked that the number is ringing at a group? to do this enter customer programming;
TRSF 200
1 to enable
press your speaker key
enter 714

The screen will display;

DID DGT (001)


Press the volume key until you get to the number you wish to program, when you have reached this press the 3rd soft key under the screen (TAB) until you get to the DDI Destination which will display:

1 : XXX 2 : XXX

Enter the extension number OR the group number which you want this DDI to ring at. (1= day ring plan , 2= night ring plan, unless other ring plans are in place on the system )

Once you have put the group in you need to go to 601 to enter all extensions into that group. If you visit there are easy to follow videos covering a wide range of programming issues on the Samsung phone systems, I have uploaded one which I think will help, regards

How do you turn on the phone to receive calls?

Hi I think that what you are referring to is adding this extension to an operator group, so that it rings when an outside caller dials in. to do this you need to know which group number is to be programmed. usually this is '500'.
Press Transfer 200, followed by 1234, then 1 to enable, then 601.
now type the group number ie '500'
using your volume key scroll down until you get to Members.
press the 3rd little button under the LCD, now using the volume key again find an empty slot. press the 3 rd button again and add the new extension number.
I have sent you a training video to watch which explains this, other clips from 'abbeytel' are on YouTube and are great for reference. Alternatively visit

Phone lines on Prostar DCS are locked up.

That is common, the company that originally set it up, or someone who serviced it at some point changed the default password. you need to call a technician to come out and service it, this will require opening the system up and clearing the memory, then it will have to be reprogrammed.

Need to assign 5 extensions to a group and auto forward incoming calls to all of them

Which system? Ring groups are set up with 500-529 access codes, notably 529 is the one for voice mail. Look in your installers guide for MMC that deals with HUNT groups and assign the extension to a new group.

If you need a manual, post back with your system model.

Hi you should be able to do this by pressing either 601 + 9- ( external number) or 605 +-9 (external number) please be aware that forwarding to external only works if the inbound caller is going to an extension and not a group.
