Prepend Area Code on Phone (No Server)

We are a small business with a single phone. We purchased a new VVX401 that I configured using BToE.  Works fine, but I need to prepend an area code to all numbers dialed without one.  Is there a way to do this from the phone interface?  All questions/responses for this question involve adding specific codes to what appears to be some sort of management software.  My phone came with no instructions other than connection diagrams, so I am not exactly sure what to do.  It seems like something I could just find in the phone OS.


If I need the software to make this change, can I run it on a laptop and connect it to the phone only when a change is needed?

Hello Megaweapon,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

I would recommend to work with whoever sold you this service and the phone. Usually the Skype for Business Server can do this.

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.
