Savi W700 – Switching Between Desk Phone and Bluetooth Mobile Calls

Savi W740 System

Savi W740 System

How to Switch between Desk Phone and Mobile Calls Using Savi W700 Headsets

The Plantronics Savi W700 wireless headsets can be connected to three different communication devices – desk phone, PC VoIP softphone and a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone. Calls conducted on two devices can be connected and re-engaged remotely using controls on the earpiece, and conferenced using buttons on the base unit. User manuals for the Savi W740, W745, W730 and W720/720 models can be found on the pages at these links, and describe how to connect and manage calls from the various devices. This article explains how to manage simultaneous desk phone and mobile calls remotely using the Savi W700 earpiece.

First, the Bluetooth part. Your Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone can be paired with the W700 Base* as follows:

1. Press down and hold the Bluetooth pairing button  for4 seconds (black bar on lower part of the base) until indicator LED flashes red and blue. The base will remain in this mode for 10 minutes. If it goes off, you will need to press it again.

2. Place Bluetooth mobile phone into search mode. Select SAVI 7xx  from the list of found devices.

3. If prompted by mobile phone, type 0000 as passcode.

The Bluetooth indicator LED on the W700 Base will turn solid blue when the Base has an active connection with the mobile phone.

4. While wearing headset, short press base mobile button (middle one on the top of the Base).

5. Dial test call from mobile phone.

6. End call by pressing headset call control button.

* Note that the W700 Bluetooth transmitter is in the Base, not in the earpiece. You cannot use the Bluetooth connection between wireless headset and your mobile phone no more than about 20 feet from the Base. However, the range between earpiece and Base is around 300 feet, no matter what the source of the call (desk phone, mobile or PC).

Managing simultaneous desk phone and Mobile phone calls:

You can remotely manage an incoming Mobile phone call when you are already on a desk phone call by putting the desk phone call on hold, completing the Mobile call, and then re-engaging the desk phone call, all from controls on the Savi 700 earpiece.

1. While you are engaged in a desk phone call, the phone LED (RH top Button/LED on Base) is solid green.

2. You receive an incoming call on your Mobile phone.

–  You will be alerted to the incoming Mobile call by periodic beeps in the headset earpiece.

– The Mobile connection button/LED (middle one on top of base) will start flashing green.

3. Select the headset volume control button UP or DOWN for 14 seconds to answer the incoming Mobile call.

The Base Mobile LED turn solid green, and the desk phone LED will flash red (the desk phone call is now on Hold).

4. Select the Call Control button on the earpiece to terminate the Mobile call.

The Mobile LED on the Base will go out, but the desk phone LED will be still flashing red.

5. Select the earpiece volume UP or DOWN again to re-engage the desk phone call.

The desk phone LED on the Base will now go solid green, and the call is active again.

Select the earpiece Call Control button to end the desk phone call.

Hands-Free Bluetooth for Alberta’s New Driving Laws

Voyager Pro Lifestyle

Bluetooth Headset

March 1, 2011:   There has been lots written on the new hands-free driving laws soon to be enforced in Alberta, so this article will just touch on the highlights and present a couple of solutions.

Using, viewing or even holding a cell phone while driving will soon be illegal in Alberta under the new distracted driving law.  The new law bans hand-held cell phones (hands-free OK) as well as PDAs and other hand-held electronic communications devices.  Texting will be banned. Also prohibited would be personal grooming, non-commercial use of CB radios, writing, drawing, sketching and use of certain video screens. Fine of $172, no demerits.

Note: The RCMP in Alberta isn’t waiting for the new provincial government law. It started to target distracted drivers in the month of February 2011. Under current law, careless driving can bring fines of $402 and 6 demerits.

[ref – http://handsfreeinfo.com/alberta-distracted-driving]

For Truckers, Alberta’s distracted driving law restricts the use of hand-held CB radios, except for drivers who are required to maintain radio contact for ‘commercial purposes,  like when escorting an over-dimensional vehicle, for contacting that driver’s employer  as well as for drivers involved in search, rescue or emergency management situations.

[ref – http://www.desitrucking.com/alberta-clarifies-cb-handsfree-rules-for-trucking]

Motorists will still be permitted to use hands-free devices and unwired accessories that use Bluetooth technology to transmit signals. A wide range of Bluetooth headsets and Bluetooth speakerphone car kits are available. Most cell phones now have Bluetooth compatibility. This functionality allows phones to connect wirelessly to external devices such as headsets or earpieces.

Here are the features to consider when selecting a hands-free device:

  • Confirm compatibility: In some rare cases Bluetooth headsets may be incompatible with some Bluetooth phones. Look for the compatibility list on the packaging as well as on manufacturers websites.
  • Experiment with different designs: Earhooks and earbuds come in a variety of designs. Try a few varieties to determine what will feel comfortable for the entire length of your commute. The design should feel secure – with no need to adjust while driving.
  • Keep your driving and phone use habits in mind: If you talk often while driving but you make frequent stops, a headset may be a better option than a car speaker kit. Also consider working ranges. A standardized rating system that classifies ranges into either Bluetooth Class 2 or Bluetooth Class 1 will help you compare products. Bluetooth Class 2 has a working range of up to roughly 33 feet (10 meters). Bluetooth Class 1: have a range of up to 328 feet (100 meters).
  • Consider the vehicle environment: The car can have a noisy interior especially if you often have passengers. Find a headset with good noise cancellation and wind noise reduction.
  • Specs, Versions and Standards: Bluetooth has three versions of varying quality, power consumption and speed; version 3.0 + HS (High Speed), version 2.1 + EDR, version 2.0 + EDR. Each version has a specific specs and standards with 3.0 being the highest quality and newest model. “EDR”, or Enhanced Data Rate, devices have faster data transfer.
  • Device Profile: For headsets, the profile defines the standard capabilities and functionalities of the device. A Headset Profile (HSP) device only allows you to talk on the phone through the headset, accept incoming calls, hang up, and adjust the volume. Hands-Free Profile (HFP) has added functionally such as redial, call waiting handling and dial by voice.

Some Bluetooth solutions: Plantronics offers several high-quality Bluetooth devices for use mobile environments.
