All the Tel-Lynx news that’s fit to print

Here’s a list of features we’ve created or updated so far in 2016 (see detailed list in the release notes).

  • What if a contact’s phone number is being spoofed by a robocaller? You can now add a contact password requirement so the contact can get through (see April 7 User’s Guide, p.46).
  • Added caller announcement modes. You can now set Tel-Lynx to announce all callers, only new callers, only new callers you have never pressed 1 to speak with, or no callers. To set the mode, at the dial tone: press FLASH, 7, secret code, then 1 9 7.
  • You can add a qualified new caller to the phone book as Blocked. At the dial tone: press FLASH, then 3 1, then find the user you want to block, then press 8.
  • More voice mail options. See the Voice Mail section in the latest Start Up Guide for your particular unit. 
  • Google/Gmail .csv format is available (in addition to Outlook and Thunderbird) to import contacts using Tel-Lynx’s PC software.
