Address-by-Name Operation

The Address-by-Name feature allows callers to address a message to any subscriber by dialing the subscriber’s name instead of the subscriber’s extension number. Callers who
do not know a subscriber’s extension number may select name addressing by pressing [*] [A] (for Alternate Addressing Mode) and entering the subscriber’s name. The DEFINITY
