    Advanced privacy: blacklist, silence mode, call barring*

    Black List restricts calls from specific numbers or those starting with certain digits. You can block up to 4 sets of numbers. Each set of numbers can consist of 1 to 24 digits. When there is an incoming call that starts with one of these numbers or is one of the exact numbers that you chose to block, your phone will not ring. With Silence Mode you can disable ringtones during specific times. Thanks to Call Barring, you can avoid the surprise of expensive phone bills by blocking calls to specific numbers starting with certain digits. Anonymous Call also restricts incoming calls with hidden numbers, and the phone will not ring.

    One-touch volume boost for extra-loud sound

    One-touch volume boost for extra-loud sound

    Do you sometimes wish a caller could speak a little louder? With the one-touch volume boost key, you can instantly increase the volume by over 12 dB* on the earpiece and over 8 dB* on the hands-free speaker. Now you can hear every word and tone loud and clear. No conversation will be misunderstood ever again. *Measurement is based on the lowest volume level to the maximum boost-up volume level. Users are advised not to put the handset close to the ear when the boost-up key is first pressed. Boost-up volume will return to normal when you end the call.

    Instantly call your loved ones via 3 direct memory keys

    Now calling the people you care about most is easier than ever. With simple one-touch dialling, you will never have to search for their numbers again, connecting at the touch of a button.

    Handset speakerphone allows you to talk hands-free

    Hands-free mode uses a built-in loudspeaker to amplify the voice of the caller, allowing you to speak and listen during a call without holding the phone to your ear. This is especially useful if you want to share the call with others or simply multitask.
