Call Transfer

Using call transfer on a multiline phone

Call Transfer allows you to transfer a call from your phone to any other phone on the Stanford system.

Note: If you do not have a Transfer button, click here.

  1. Press: Transfer
    You hear three beeps followed by dial tone and the call is placed "on hold." The diamond indicator next to your Transfer key is solid and the diamond indicator next to your DN flashes.
  2. Dial: 5-digit phone number (to which to transfer the call)
    Wait for the party to answer and you can announce the call privately (i.e., the original caller cannot hear you.) If you receive a busy signal or no answer, press Transfer twice to reconnect to the original call.
  3. Press: Transfer
    All parties are connected and you can Rls and hang up. Both diamond indicators go out.

Note: If you disconnect, the connection between the other two parties is also terminated unless one party is on a phone connected to the Stanford system. In the latter case, any continuing charges for long-distance calls are still billed to your account since you originated the call.
