Your Venture phone comes equipped with the most commonly used options already set for you (default settings).

As you begin using your phone you may decide to change the way your phone operates. You can do this by
customizing any of the 42 available options to suit your individual needs.

To set an option
1.   Press ¥.
2.   Press ’ or ” repeatedly until your display shows the option you want to set
     OR
     use the dial pad to enter the two digit option number to go directly to it in the list (e.g. 06 for Call timer).
3.   Follow the display prompts to select the setting you prefer.
The following chart explains each option. Options are listed in the order in which they appear in the list. The first
column shows the option number and name. Enter this number to go directly to it in the list — no need to scroll through
the list. The second column shows the possible settings for each option. An asterisk (*) indicates the default setting of
an option. The last column explains how the settings for each option affects the way your phone works.

                                       shows 555-4444. When you then enter your PIN (3333), the display shows
