Your extension is normally a 4 digit number (e.g. 3000).

To pick up a call you have to consider which line the calls will ring on. Normally calls will ring on your line 1.

To answer a call on extension 3000 on line 1, you would dial:


or more generally

** + Extension + Line + #

The # forces the phone to dial immediately and may not be required on some phones or if you are trying to program a speed dial.
