Wake Up Call

The Wake Up Feature: The Wake Up feature allows you two wake up calls within a twenty-four hour period unless you deactivate one or both call times. When activated, your phone will ring at the programmed time with three ring cycles, five minutes apart, with five rings per cycle. The wake up call is complete when you answer the phone or after the three ring cycles.

To activate the Wake Up Feature:

Press #6. Dial in the wake up request time using the twenty-four hour format also known as military time. Example: 7:30 a.m. as 0730 or 7:30 p.m. as 1930. A confirmation tone will follow consisting of four short beeps. To program the second wake up time, if wanted, hang up the phone and start over with #6. If you hear a rapid busy tone, then your time has not been programmed. It is possible that you dialed the time incorrectly or you have already programmed the two allowable times.
