4.  Press Conference Unit.

5.  Press Turn On.

6.  When call is done, press Turn Off. **

  • This step is very important. Failing to terminate calls can result in excessive long distance charges!

If you need to connect a laptop, there is a port on the back of the phone.  There should already be a black cord coming out of the phone for this.  The phone must be plugged directly into the network jack in order for it to operate.
