I have a couple IP Office 500's.  One is an older unit, and has 5420 handsets.  The other is much newer (V.2) & has 9508 handsets.

The 9508 has a "contacts" button, and I really like this feature.

I am trying to setup something similar on the 5420 (older system), and I don't see this as an option.  The closest thing I could find was to program a button on the 5420 to use:
ACTION -> Directory

Does anyone know if it's possible to setup the contacts feature on the 5420's, or is the Directory button as good as it gets?

Any thoughts or advice on this would be greatly appreciated.
