silent mode. Other handsets programmed to the phone are not affected, and will
continue to ring when calls are received.

Conference Calls: Up to 2 handsets can have a conference call with an outside party.
Security: A handset cannot operate unless it is registered
with the base unit.
Voice Mail Services: If the connected phone system is
compatible with your telephone company's voice mail service, special tones sent
by the telephone company can cause the message indicator on the handset to flash
slowly, and make the handset display the message "New Voice Mail" in the LCD.

necessary pauses) so you can dial it automatically to retrieve your messages.
