  • To un-mute yourself on the call, dial * * (STAR STAR) (also referred to as the asterisk key) on your telephone’s keypad. If you are using a smartphone, you must have your screen unlocked.
  • The meeting software uses audible alerts to indicate that the participant is muted or un-muted.
  • If using a smartphone, the phone must be unlocked and open to the active call’s keypad screen to use the un-muting function.
  • Some phones have self-mute options. This option will not un-mute yourself from the call, so please refrain from using this option. Only STAR STAR will un-mute yourself. We will re-mute you once completed with your question or comment.
