Adjusting the Handset Rest
You can adjust the handset rest of a wall-mounted phone so that the receiver does not slip out of the cradle.
Set the handset aside and pull the square plastic tab from the handset rest.
Rotate the tab halfway (180 degrees).
Hold the tab between two fingers, with the small notches (in the corners) facing you.
Make sure the tab lines up evenly with the slot in the cradle.
Slide the tab back into the handset rest. An extension protrudes from the top of the rotated tab. Return the handset to the handset rest.
The hookswitch button is located on the cradle rest of your phone. You can press and quickly release the hookswitch button to activate features (hookflash) on your phone.
