English term or phrase:Answered call in number memory
EXT External call
INT Intercom Function
[SYMBOL] New number(s) in Caller ID log.
[SYMBOL] ***Answered call in number memory.***
[SYMBOL] Shown within reception range. Flashes when out of range.
when the symbol appears, might it mean that "there is an answered call to that number, which is stored in the phone book"??
(English is Swedish English, so it may not be 100% correct)
Explanation: This is just a guess. I only propose it because I am not certain anyone is closer to exactly what "answered call in number memory" means.
My first instinct would be to say that assuming the language is awkward 'numbered memory' means phone-book. However it could just mean exactly what it says. A phone number is in memory. Think of many land phones that have a redial feature. They have one number held in memory, the last outgoing call. On this phone you can redial from a log (number memory) of incoming calls. This feature would be common on hand phones, but still a novelty for land lines, only possible with the advent and propagation of Caller ID.
Answered call in number memory
>The number from a previous incoming call is being held in memory
In other words you can select a number from the incoming call list without having to re-key the number or go to your phone book.
comment : I don't know why this would be useful information to have, but some times features have more marketing utility than user benefit. While an incoming call list may be ubiquitous for hand-phones it may be enough a novelty for cordless phones that they haven't found standardised language to talk about features.
>A call was received and answered automatically
in other words a voice mail or missed call indicator
comment : These seem like common enough features that they would have just said 'voice mail' or 'missed call' in your source document.
Since we are talking about a cordless-phone and not a hand-phone I could see where they are using unfamiliar language to talk about common, and well understood, features for hand-phones.
Is this a list of displayable icons/symbols in the top level menu, the call-info menu or another?

answered call in number memory
I am thinking the same as you do
Explanation: But a bit weird to represent such events. Is it necessary to make such an explaination?? Is it already enough to show "outgoing calls nos" and then let the user decide whether those numbers should be entered into the phone book?
