I have an SBX and all the icoms are set for handsfree. That's how they want it. Now I put in a VM card, and they want to be able to icom a user and leave a VM if they aren't there. Is there a way for a user to force another icom to ring? We used to do that with the DX series by dialing * if the party wasn't at their desk, and then it went to vm after a couple of rings.

I searched the user guide, and the install manual and couldn't find that option, or else didn't know what they call it.

The SBX does not have forced tone ring. If a station is in handsfree mode and no one answers than the send message function is the only real way to leave a message.

I don't know if this will work when a phone is in handsfree mode. Try hitting the callback button if there is no answer. If a phone is ringing when you hit callback you get the user's vm greeting and can leave a message. Who knows, it might just work.
