Making Calls with Multiple Phone Numbers

Once you have assigned phone numbers to a phone, they will show up on the phone for use. To select a specific phone number to use:


  1. On the phone, click the Dial tab.
  2. On the lower left, there is a new selection box that has the currently selected phone number.
  3. Click the box and select the phone number to use.
