Home area code
If you dial seven digits to make a local call (no area code required), enter 
your area code into the telephone as the home area code. When you receive 
a call from within your home area code, the caller ID history only displays the 
seven digits of the telephone number.
This feature makes it easy for you to place a call from the caller ID log. If you 
dial 10 digits to make a local phone call, do not use this home area code 
feature. If you do, you will not be able to place calls from your caller ID log as 
they have only seven digits.
1. Press 
MENU
/SELECT in the idle mode to enter the main 
menu.
2. Use  CID or DIR  to scroll to >HOME AREA CODE, 
then press 
MENU
/SELECT.
3. Press the dial pad keys to enter a three-digit home area 
code. Press DELETE/MUTE to delete digits while 
entering.
4. Press 
MENU
/SELECT to save and return to the main 
menu.
NOTE: If, in the future, your telephone service provider requires you to dial 10 digits 
to make a local call (area code + phone number), you will need to delete your home 
area code. With the home area code displayed, press and hold DELETE/
MUTE
. The 
home area code is now restored to its default setting of _ _ _.
