However, there some features that users can access on most Avaya telephone systems.
The tools menu allows you to locate preferences, network statistics and configuration tools. By pushing a button, you can see incoming calls, outgoing calls and missed calls. In addition, you can check your voice mails and program the phone, from volume and ring tones.
Some phones display a light when you have received messages. In addition, the display screen alerts you when you are receiving a call and shows the incoming caller's information, if available.
Some phones include standard USB ports to connect a mouse or keyboard to the phone. This feature allows you to select various menu applications via your keyboard or mouse, rather than simply hitting the phone keypad.
The phones have the ability to prevent access to particular options on the phone that a company does not want to change. This option can lock menu options, such as preferences, configuration and diagnostic features.

Some phones have the capability of instant messaging. When you have an instant messaging waiting, the phone alerts you with a Blue LED light. Also, the feature offers a special character option to represent certain text entries. You can also disable the instant-messaging feature.
