In addition to a directory of missed, placed, or received calls, the phone can store a local directory of 500 or more contacts.

Limit depends on server configuration. Contact your system administrator for full details.

You can add, delete, edit, dial, or search for any contact in this list through just a few key strokes.

To add or edit a contact:

  • Press Menu button and select Features, Contact Directory.

  • Use Polycom 430 Left arrow and Polycom 430 Right arrow to switch between Enabled and Disabled settings for the last four fields.
