Transferring a Call on Your VTech VSP600 Phone

There are two types of call transfers — a warm transfer (supervised), and a blind transfer (unsupervised). A warm transfer occurs when you speak to the party you are transferring the call to before you transfer the call to them. With a blind transfer, you do not speak to the receiving party.

There is a physical TRANSFER button on the keypad of the device, to the left of the MENU/SELECT button. There is also a TRANS softkey that will appear at the bottom of the display of the phone when needed. Press the corresponding softkey to make the selection (Figure 1-1).

To Complete a Warm Transfer (Supervised): 

 

  1. During a call, press the physical TRANSFER button on the handset, located to the left of the MENU/SELECT button. The call is automatically put on hold, and the transfer setup screen appears (Figure 2-1).

  2. Dial the number or select the handset to transfer to. You can also use a number from a list, such as the Directory or Call History.
  3. When the second caller answers, you can talk to the caller to notify them of the transfer, then press the TRANS softkey to transfer the call (Figure 2-2).
