How to Make a Blind and Attended Transfer Using Yealink T42/T41

In this example we will demonstrate how to perform a blind and attended (consultative) transfer using a Yealink T42. This procedure applies to Yealink T42 and T41.

Note: A Blind Transfer is a transfer to another extension without actually initiating a call to the end destination. The call is blindly transferred to the destination. By comparison, an attended transfer is a transfer where before actually transferring to the destination, the call is put on hold and another call is initiated to confirm whether the end destination actually wants to take the call or not. These two calls are then merged together.
