How to use the night / silent mode on a Telephone.

Night / Silent mode allows you to select a period of time during which the handset and/or base unit will not ring for outside calls. This feature is useful for time periods when you do not want to be disturbed, for example, while sleeping.


Night / Silent mode can be set for each unit. Using the phonebook’s group feature, you can also select groups of callers whose calls override Night / Silent mode and ring the unit (Call Display subscribers only). (Not available on all models)

 

Important:

  • Make sure the unit’s date and time setting is correct.
  • We recommend turning the base unit ringer off in addition to turning the Night / Silent mode on.
  • For models with alarm mode feature - If you have set the alarm, the alarm sounds even if the Night / Silent mode is turned on.
