  • 8. ix About This Guide This guide applies to two phones: the Polycom® VVX® 300 and 310 business media phones. You can use this guide if you have either phone. This user guide will help you to navigate and use your VVX 300 or VVX 310 phone. It will give you an overview of your phone, and walk you through tasks so you can successfully use your phone to perform basic and advanced phone functions. As you read this guide, the terms the phone and your phone refer to either the VVX 300 or VVX 310 phone. Unless specifically noted in this guide, both phones operate in the same way and the information in this guide applies to both phones. Throughout the rest of this guide, VVX 300 is used to represent both the VVX 300 and 310 phones. Who Should Read this Guide? This guide contains overview information for people who are just starting to learn about their VVX 300 or VVX 310 phone, or who have experience, but need a quick refresher. It is intended for beginning users, as well as intermediate and advanced users who want to learn about their phone’s features. How to Use this Guide This guide is organized into five chapters. The beginning chapters introduce the phone and explain how to use the phone’s basic features. Later chapters describe advanced features, and how to customize your phone to suit your needs. The guide also includes safety and legal information. • Chapter 1: Getting Started This chapter contains general information about your phone that you’ll find helpful before you start using it. It describes phone hardware and phone views, and how to navigate menus and enter data. • Chapter 2: Using Basic Features All the basic features that your phone offers—such as how to add contacts and favorites, or transfer or forward calls—are described in this chapter. • Chapter 3: Using Advanced Features Advanced features that may not be available on the phone, or that you may not use on a day-to-day basis, are described in this chapter. Advanced features include recording calls, locking your phone, monitoring buddies, and accessing a Browser.
  • 9. Polycom® VVX® 300 and 310 Business Media Phones User Guide x • Chapter 4: Customizing Your Phone You can customize your phone in many ways, including setting up a screen saver, or changing the backlight, background picture, or time and date format. Read this chapter to personalize your phone. • Chapter 5: Administrative Tasks This chapter describes tasks that your administrator may ask you to perform. These tasks include investigating phone issues, restarting the phone, updating the phone’s configuration, and testing the phone’s hardware. • Copyright, Safety, and Regulatory Notices This section provides important safety and compliance information relating to your phone. • End-User License Agreement The End-User License Agreement outlines the legal agreement between you and Polycom when you agree to install and use Polycom software. Conventions Used in this Guide This user guide contains terms, graphical elements, and a few typographic conventions. Familiarizing yourself with these terms, elements, and conventions will help you perform phone tasks. Terms and Writing Conventions • Your Phone / the phone These terms refer to either the VVX 300 or VVX 310 phone.
