The Nortel company produces phones and office equipment that are used across the United States. The Nortel line of office phones can be used to set up an internal phone system that can be used to communicate with other phones in the same building or connect to phones all over the world. Nortel phones also feature many programmable buttons that you can use to save frequently used numbers so that you can quickly dial a number and stay on task. By using the programming function and the keypad on your phone base, you can program up to 24 different numbers.

Pick up the receiver of your Nortel phone off of the base. You will hear a dial tone.

Press the "Feature" button on the base of your Nortel phone. Press the star button followed by the "1" button on the keypad to store external numbers.

Press one of the 24 memory buttons on the right side of the base to begin programming it. Once you have hit the button, press the number buttons in the center of the base to dial an external number you wish to save to the Nortel phone. Include the "9" button if you need to press it to dial and external number and be sure to include the area code and country code to dial a long-distance number.

Press the "OK" button save this number to the memory button you programmed. Repeat Steps 2 through 3 to program other external numbers.
