Your CS540 wireless headset has two buttons:

1) Call Control Button – This is how you answer and end calls.  When the headset is in use, the LED indicator light will flash white.

2) Volume/Mute Button – The second button (or rocker switch) is located at the back of the headset and controls your speaker volume.  When pushed up, it raises your speaker volume and pushed down decreases the volume.  You have 3 levels so continue pressing for increased or decreased volume levels.  Pushing this button in will mute and un-mute your microphone.

You’re Done! – To make a call, push the button on the side of the CS540 headset.  The HL10 lifter will lift giving you dial tone and begin dialing.  When finished, push the button on the side of the CS540 to hang-up the call.  When you have an incoming call, you will hear beeps in your ear indicating a call.  If you choose to take the call, push the button on the CS540 headset to answer the call and press again when finished to hang-up the call.  If you need to put the call on hold, walk back to your phone and press the hold button.
