Just purchased our new phone system, reading and cannot even figure how to enter the date and time

Technician's Assistant: How old is the phone?

New. Bought at Costco

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I am just at the beginning. Reading the manual. Still cannot figure how to enter the date and time just to get started.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

Yes. I think I am too stupid to own this phone.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
