Instructions to transfer a phone call.

*Be aware that these instructions only work for Cortelco and Meridan phones other models have differing instructions.

Cortelco phone (analog phone):
1. Press the FLASH button (or depress the switch hook button momentarily).
2. Listen for three beeps and dial tone. 
3. Dial the extension number to whom the call is to be transferred. 
4. When ringing is heard, hang up your receiver or stay on the line to announce the call. 
5. Hang up the receiver to complete the transfer. 

Note: If you encounter a busy signal or no answer, press the FLASH button twice in succession. This reconnects you with the original caller.

Meridan phone (digital phone):

2. Dial the extension number to whom the call is to be transferred. 
3. Press the TRANSFER button again, either once you hear ringing, or after you you talk with the person you are transferring the call to.
4. Hang up the receiver to complete the transfer. 

Note: If you encounter a busy signal or no answer, press the button besides the flashing LCD indicator. This reconnects you with the original caller.
