Additional Information

By default, Poly VVX phones have a power-saving mode to help conserve energy. This means that after a set idle time, the phone will power down until it needs to be used.

If your business has set business hours, you can set the Off Hours mode on your phone to have the phone automatically power down when your business is closed. During off hours, the message Off Hours Mode will scroll across the display.
