Your phone’s speakerphone allows for a hands-free 2-way conversation. Speakerphone is the “default” audio mode unless you are using a handset or headset.
Activate / Deactivate Speakerphone Manually
At any time, you can activate/deactivate the speakerphone by pressing the speaker button. Think of this as taking the speakerphone “off-hook” or hanging it up (like a handset). If the speakerphone is in use, the speaker button will be lit and a speaker icon will appear on the screen.
- If you activate the speakerphone while the phone is idle, you will be presented with a dial tone.
- If you are on an active call using the speakerphone, and you deactivate the speakerphone, you will hang up the call.
Automatic Speakerphone Activation
Assuming you are not using a handset, and the phone is not in headset mode:
- If you place a call, either by dialing a number or by selecting a number from the contact list or call history, the call will be made in speakerphone mode.
- If you press the Answer soft key during an incoming call, the call will be answered in speakerphone mode.
- Incoming page/intercom messages will be played over the speaker.
Adjusting the Speakerphone Volume
- While the speakerphone is active (in-use), press the + or – buttons to increase or decrease the volume.
- The new volume setting will persist for future speakerphone calls unless you change it again.
Muting the Microphone
- To mute your microphone while on an active call, so that the other party cannot hear you, press the mute button.
- Press the mute button again to un-mute the microphone.
Switching from Speakerphone Mode to Another Mode During a Call
- Speakerphone to Handset: Pick up the handset.
- Speakerphone to Headset: Press the headset button.
Switching from Another Mode to Speakerphone Mode During a Call
