Sending DTMF tones

DTMF tones (Dual Tone Multi Frequency) can be sent once a telephone connection has been established. You need this function to communicate with touch tone-activated telephone systems (e.g. for controlling your voice mailbox or when dialing in remotely to your answering machine).

  1. Select "Enter number" in the call menu.
    The numerical input menu is opened.
  2. Enter the desired digits.
    Each digit is immediately transmitted as a DTMF tone.

Establishing an additional call

You can establish a further call while there is another call active.

Some cell phones do not support making or accepting a second call. If this is the case, the "New call" menu item is grayed out while there is a call active.

  1. Select "New call" in the call menu.
  2. You then have the following options for entering the telephone number:
    "Dial number":
    The input menu for telephone numbers is opened. To find out more, please refer to the section
    "Dialing a number" on page 55.
    "Phonebook":
    You can insert a number stored in the phonebook. To find out more, please refer to the section
    "Calling a phonebook entry" on page 56.

The active call is retained if the second connection is established.
You can switch between the two calls or hold a conference call. To find out more about this, please refer to the section "Call waiting (swapping) and conference" on page 59.
