Resetting the Phone

Firstly, hang up the phone if it is off the hook; otherwise the reset will not work. Press the Mute button, which is the second round, gray button located to the right of the handset. The phone's LED light should be off at this point. If it lights up, pick up and then replace the handset. Then, type R-E-S-E-T on the keypad followed by the # key located in the bottom right corner of the keypad. The phone will now reset.
