  • Volume control
  • Unplug and replug of USB adapter
  • Extended functions

The tests completed successfully; the different test PCs or operating systems did not influence the test results.

1.3 Restrictions

The following restrictions were detected during the tests:

  • During an incoming call, only the configured Plantronics ringtone will be played into the Savi W440. It is not possible to set the volume of this ringtone, neither by the SwyxIt! sliders not by the Savi W440 volume control.
  • It is not possible to mute the SwyxIt! by the Savi W440 during an incoming call or in idle state.
  • If the SwyxIt! is muted by the SwyxIt! control during an incoming call or in idle state, the LED on the USB adapter does not reflect this. In this case, if the call is accepted or during call establishment, the call is muted and the LED on the USB adapter reflects this correctly.
  • It is not possible to hold calls or retrieve held calls by the Savi W440.
  • A second inbound call during an active call is not additionally being signalled by Plantronics.
  • If the USB adapter is unplugged during an active call, the call gets terminated. After replugging the USB adapter, the LED on the USB adapter indicates that a call is still active. The call control button on the headset must be pressed twice in order to syncronise the call state, otherwise, the first call wouldn't have any payload.
  • If the DECT range was left for a longer period ( > 5 min.), the audio channel will be closed by the Savi W440, but the the call itself remains active.
  • After answering an incoming call, it may take up to two seconds until the voice connection is established. This delay also occurs during the calibration of the microphone or when recording an announcement for the voicemail.

1.4 Ringing Tones

During in incoming call, only the configured Plantronics ringtone will be played into the Savi W440. It is not possible to play the specific SwyxIt! ringtone into the Savi W440.

If additional ringing on the internal speaker is configured both via the Plantronics Controlpanel and the SwyxIt!, these ringtones will interfere.
