Direct Dial IP with CISCO SPA504G

I have a Cisco IP Phone model SPA504G.  It's on the list of recommended IP phones: https://www.arednmesh.org/content/ip-phones-used-mesh

It works,  it can receive phone calls at AREDN IP 10.3.51.101

Problem is, I can't figure out how to dial an AREDN IP address with the menus / keypad on the phone.

I've dug through the phone's web interface as well.  There's some kind of phone book in there, but it doesn't seem to work.

Anyway, if anyone has a web resource or just knows the correct key sequence to dial by IP direct to another AREDN IP phone (no PBX, no SIP), I would greatly appreciate the help.

SOLUTION

For those of you who have a Cisco SPA504G and are having difficulty figuring out how to dial out by an IP address, here's the solution.

Go into the Personal Directory settings.
Add an entry like this:

n=A;p=10.88.207.114

Where n = the name of the directory entry
P= the IP address.

You can do this via the dial pad, but it's a real pain entering IP addresses that way.

Then from the keypad, select the Directory, select the entry and dial.  Works great!
