prompting to enter the access code in the
following situations:
the caller's phone number matches an
entry in the phonebook (page 44).
the caller's name matches an entry in
the allow name list (page 42).
the caller's phone number is memorized
in the allowed number database
(page 41).
RIf you have your cell phone connected via
Link to Cell, even if automated call block is
set to Block, incoming cellular calls will
still be connected automatically without
requiring the access code.
RIf the number is stored in the call block list
(page 37), the unit disconnects the call
without playing the greeting message for
automated call block.
RThe automated call block feature is not
available:
when a landline call is being received
during a cellular call.
during power backup operation
(page 29).
RWhen the answering system answers a call
from a caller who is not registered in the
phonebook, allow name list, or allowed
number database, the following operations
are delayed:
answering a call
remote turn on
toll saver
RWhen the unit receives a call from a caller
who is not registered in the phonebook,
allow name list, or allow number database
in the following situations, the unit shifts to
standby mode:
when searching the phonebook, caller
list, redial list, call block list, or allow
name list
when programming (depending on
settings)
when using the answering system
when paging all handsets or base unit
RBlocked calls are logged in the caller list.
We recommend you to check the caller list
periodically. If neccessary, register the
entry to the phonebook or allow name list to
connect the call next time.
Allowed number database
Once the caller enters the access code, the
caller's phone number is memorized in the
allowed number database as an unblocked
number. Callers from this database are
allowed to connect without the access code
from their next call.
100 entries can be stored to the database (22
digits max. each).
Note:
RWhen the database memory is full, the
latest call received will replace the oldest
number stored in the list.
RThe numbers stored in the database will be
erased when you change the access code
(page 42).
RThe numbers stored in the database cannot
be displayed.
