Updating your CapTel 800/840 Software

Your CapTel 800/840 can check if any new software updates are available, then update automatically over your telephone line. This means you’ll always be able to take advantage of the latest features & technology as long as you own your phone. You can even set a delay so that the update occurs automatically at a more convenient time (for example, overnight).
