Traditional phones only have number keypads and are limited to using numbers for most features and commands. While your phone also has a lot of “smart buttons” that do one or more things, these vary from phone to phone, so there has to be a way to operate features with just a number.

  • Ext means it works from an extension.
  • All means it works from any phone or call.
