Making Outgoing Calls
You can make calls from the dialer by tapping “Phone” or “Call” on the far left and dialing a number or an extension.
When you receive a call, answer it on the mobile as usual and then quickly tap to open the dial pad and tap any number to accept the call. The “Require Confirmation” setting is recommended even though it requires an extra step to answer the call. It lets you know the call is work related and also ensures if not answered the caller goes to your ClearStar voicemail box.
Moving Calls between Devices
You can “move” an active call between the desk phone and mobile phone by using the *11 feature code. To move a call that originated from a mobile phone to a desk phone, dial *11 on your Polycom phone to move the call to the desk phone. To move a call from a Polycom desk phone, open the MobileLink app and tap the “Calls” or “Phone” tab. Press and hold the Start Key (*) for 2 seconds and continue the call on the mobile phone.
