This phone has great features, except sound and Outlook 2003 conflicts. What good is a speakerphone or phone if you can't hear on it? So to fix the sound I think you will have to replace the phone itself.
The Icons at the top are controlled by your recent documents.
To change date format press - start,more,settings,more,more,regional, long date style.
To adjust contrast press
start,more,settings,more,more,phone settings (0-1 best for sunny days)
Hope this will help
Does anybody know how to modify the mpx220? Some things I would like to do: >>change the default set of icons that show at the top of the screen when phone is first powered up; >>display the day of the week (i.e. Monday,Tuesday,etc) above the date; >>ability to increase volume above what toggle button will generate (so I can hear if in a noisy environment); >>brighten screen/increase contrast/whatever (so that screen can easily be read outdoors on a sunny day . . . . Probably more, but that's a start. Thanks.
