Do not disturb

This feature allows you to block incoming calls before they even ring at your phone. Callers will be sent directly to your predefined call forward/busy destination, usually your voice mail.

Keys and softkeys

Keys are the permanently labeled buttons on your phone. Examples: "goodbye," "options" and "hold" keys.

Softkeys show up on your screen and change, depending on your task or settings. On the Aastra 6737i, you invoke a softkey by pressing the black button adjacent to its screen. The Aastra 6739i has a touchscreen, so you simply press the softkey.
