Calling Party Name & Number Identification
The large two-line display on the C3060 lets you see at a glance who is
calling, giving you the freedom to handle calls as you choose. You can
decide which calls to answer immediately, and which to let pass into voicemail.
Users can also quickly call back the last two persons who called by using
the last call log softkey.
Visual Message Waiting
When you miss a call, a message on the display lets you know if there
are voice mail messages waiting for you.
Enhanced Message Service
You can access your voice mail with the touch of a softkey, and then use
the labeled softkeys to navigate your mailbox without having to remember
complicated dial commands.
Call Notification on the C3060 can be customized to ring normally (full),
ring only once (chirp) or not ring at all (silent). The ring once option
means the phone is still ringing, only you just hear the first ring. This
is ideal for times when you prefer not to be distracted by a ringing phone,
but want the option of answering a call. Ring options include five distinct
tone patterns and five different volume levels.
The built-in vibrating alerter can be set to on or off independently of
the ringing options, so you never have to worry about missing an important
call in noisy environments or when you'd rather not disturb others.
A new feature offered with the C3060, the Service Directory stores up
to 15 Wireless Computer Telephony Integration (WCTI) application access
codes, or telephony host or Private Branch Exchange (PBX) feature codes
(call forward, call park, page and ring-again). Access is possible to
both custom developed WCTI applications, as well as Pre-Packaged WCTI
applications such as Information View. The same key that accesses the
Services Directory can also access a WCTI server based menu of applications,
avoiding the need to program the access codes on each handset. It is also
possible to use the Services Directory as a separate directory for important
or emergency numbers.
100 Item Telephone Directory
The scrollable directory allows users to store up to 100 names/numbers
and feature codes. Adding a new directory entry for a caller while online
is as simple as a single key press if the display shows the person's name
and number. The Telephone directory, like the Services directory can,
also provides access to advanced WCTI, PBX system or telephony host features.
Three programmable softkeys allow convenient, one-touch access to the
three host feature codes or items you access most often. The three softkeys
can also be customized for a different function during a call (active
state) than when the phone is not in use (idle state). Softkey labels
appear in the display for quick reference.
The C3003 Headband and C3001 Ear-bud Headsets, lets you maximize your
freedom by having both hands free to do routine and technical tasks while
you talk. Additional headset options for unique environment applications
are available from Nortel Networks' Business Affiliate Partners.
Mute allows users to turn off a Companion Portable's microphone so the
other party cannot hear the user speak. This key also lets you silence
the alerter of a ringing or vibrating phone, if you chose not to answer
Loud Environment Mode
A new Loud Environment Mode is engaged when the Volume is adjusted to
settings 9, 10, and 11. In addition to providing greater volume when in
this mode, the C3060 specifically tunes the audio performance to make
conversations easier to understand when the user is in an environment
with loud background noise.
Pre-dial permits users to enter a number and then to change it before
the call is placed. It also allows users to save dialed numbers to their
Last Number Redial permits users to quickly redial a called number by
pressing the self-labeled softkey when it is available.
The Companion Portable Telephone offers several levels of security:
- Digital Communications - prevents eavesdropping
- Registration - eliminates unauthorized system access
- De-Registration - enables a system administrator to prevent system access
from lost or stolen Portable Telephones
Low Power Consumption
The C3060's low power consumption maximizes battery life, giving you more
talk and standby time. When fully charged, the portable phone can be used
throughout a normal working day without recharging. The C3060 offers a
choice of two different battery options:
- Commercial AAA alkaline batteries with the C3060 Battery
- Rechargeable Universal Battery Pack (NiMH 800mAH) - Utilizes heavy-duty
industrial grade Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) cell technology for extended
Battery Charging Options
The Companion C3060 Portable Battery Pack can be recharged with the Individual
Charger (single battery charger for personal use) or the Group Charger
(six battery charger for share or shift type workers). Each of these chargers
has been designed to provide greater flexibility in adapting to user needs
and working environments. Both chargers provide the following key benefits:
- Advanced charging algorithms
- Sophisticated battery diagnostics
- Enhanced electrical contact reliability
A Companion Portable may be "twinned" or paired with a wired
phone so that they share the same extension number or DN. The wired and
wireless phones will share a single DN that exists on two separate physical
paths. Both sets will ring when incoming calls arrive, but only one set
will be able to answer a call at any given time. The DN will appear "busy"
if either set is in use.
