On our 3 line Nortel T7208 it is showing 2 of the lines are in use, they are not, how do we clear these?

Reboot phone system or pull the jumpers off and re punch down to KSU.
Lines need to be programmed a Supervision Disconnect = YES both on phone system and the carrier, call a tech in to do this/check and also put in a repair ticket with the carrier to do same.
Supervision Disconnect monitors the lines to when you hang up it knows to release the line. Muck like back in the day you could hangup on that crank caller, pick up the phone a aminute later and he was still there.

Caller ID does not display name on Nortel phone

Cell phones do not send caller name, so create a Speed Dial entry for that number with the name you want to see. When a call arrives from that number, the system will show the name you have programmed.

M7208 call display not working hot sure how to program it. when calls come in it does not show who is calling

So is the display not working or are you trying to set up caller ID?

M7208 phones were delivered with the very first Nortel systems and if you have one of those, you're not getting CID. The CICS cabinet or higher requries a CID trunk card and IIRC 5.0 or higher software. If all of those are in place, as a minimum you can press FEATURE 811 to display CID info.

Our caller ID has stopped working and this has nothing to do with our monthly ATnT service

The caller ID facility is an optional facility provided by your Operator and this needs to be activated from operator side in order to show in customer's Called ID device.
Please check it with any other line that has the same facility activated.

How do you set up caller ID on a Norstar M7208 phone with 4 lines?

There are a few other things you need before it will just work on your phones. You need to get Caller-Id activated by your carrier on each of the 4 lines. You also need to make sure your system has a Trunk card capable of Caller-Id. The card in your systems should be labeled CID.

After this you still need to program the lines for Caller-Id in the configuration section of programming.

Need Caller ID displayed on Nortel StarTalk Flash/M7310

A question: -> does your phone ring? -> what software are you running on the system? If you know this will help a little in giving you more information. There is a Feature that you can dial if your phone rings... when there is a call coming in, dial FEATURE 8 1 1 You can even make this a button rather than dialing this feature code everytime: -> Feature * 3 -> press the button that you want to program -> dial Feature 8 1 1

Nortel M7310

Your M7310 phone does not have caller ID. The phone system can have caller ID and there are a few different options you could have for phone system and caller ID packages. You should try to find out which Nortel phone system you have and possibly what type of Caller ID unit.

I suspect you cannot do what you are looking for because as I mentioned, the phone itself does not have caller ID and only displays what the phone system tells it to. It is more complicated for a caller ID system to store a list of previous calls when you have multiple lines and multiple phones. Would you want to see a list of every call that has come in, just the calls that rang at your station or just the calls that rang and you answered at your station.... BUT... this may be ansered in a user guide specific to your phone system or your caller ID interface.
