To dial off-hook

Calls to the US and Canada are all dialed using 10 or 11 digits. Local calls can be dialed using 7 digits.

Making International Calls

To dial an international call

Dial the international call code 011.

Dial the local number.

International calling is commonly disallowed to prevent toll fraud.

Extension Dialing

Extensions on your system can be dialed using their 3-to-4 digit extension or by pressing the button on your phone corresponding to the desired extension.


VoIP phones provide an intercom feature that allows you to instantly connect to other phones within your office. Intercom functionality is ideal for announcing visitors or asking a quick question.

When one phone intercoms another extension, it does not ring the other phone. Instead, the other phone will beep, and then its microphone and speaker turn on.

To intercom

Dial 99 ext. For example, to intercom extension 100, dial 99100.
