We had a little hick up getting it set up. Your people were great at helping us get the head set fixed.

Great Customer Service. I would highly recommend

We "were" happy with the CS50 wireless and the Receiver Lift application, but after purchasing the Hook Switch we are 100% thrilled! Well worth the modest price.

Cannot silence ringing
Customer Rating:
02/07/2012
There is no way to silence the ring that the phone passes to the headset, meaning that if you are doing something and don't want to answer calls, you are left with an annoying beeping in your ear.

Called Plantronics support, they were great, but their advice was to unplug the hook switch cable from the bottom of the headset stand, which renders the electronic hookswitch inoperable, you can no longer pick up calls using the button on the headset.

Taking off the headset to give a break to your ears doesn't help because even off of your head the ringing can be heard while the headset is on the stand!

The feature to mute the ring should have been included.
