Question about Cisco 7960 IP Phone

1 Answer

Calls ringing in on a line already in use

We've got an extension set up on four of the six buttons of our 7960 Series IP phone to allow for high volumes of calls. However, when one of the lines is in use and someone else calls in, the call doesn't go to the next available line for the extension (for example, if Button 1 is in use it should ring on Button 2, but every now and then the new call will ring on Button 1).

We've adjusted the "Hunt-Stop" to where it hunts through the first three lines and stops on the fourth, but periodically we'll still get a call that will ring in on a line that's already being used. Has anyone had this problem before? How did you get it resolved?

    What version of call manager are you using? Are you using a hunt Pilot/Hunt Group/Line group configuration or simple forward/busy on the line configuration? If you are using the latter, make sure you only allow 1 call before busy. By default Call manager allows 2.

You need to change the 'number of call before engaged' value in the phone configuration to 1 for each of the lines... that way the line will be engaged and the next line will be used.

How do i forward calls to an outside line on Nortel M7324


You can forward an extension that is not used at all, and has the lines assigned to ring that you want to forward to an outside number. In programming have the extensions set to forward on busy to the external number using 9+ the number desired. When you leave for the afternoon, take the handset off the phone, and replace it when you return. NOTE THIS EXTENSION MUST NOT BE USED BY ANYONE -- IF THIS EXTENSION IS BEING USED AND A LINE RINGS IN IT WILL BE FORWARDED OUT.

The phone must be programmed with the target line assigned to the number you wish to have ring at that phone. This can be done with the BCM Element Manager interface. If your BCM450 is running version 6, I think this can even be done directly from the phone, but I'm not sure of that process.

I can send a fax without any problem, but am not able to receive. I have set it to send after 3 rings, but the phone rings and then my answering machine comes on. I just turned my answering machine off. ...


Set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the printer does. For example, if you set the answering machine to answer calls after three rings, set the printer to answer calls after five or six rings. Also, make sure the fax line is plugged into the Line port on the back of the printer and the fax settings are correct (phone number, pick-up on rings, etc).

Hi if you just want to silence the actual unit, most often you will find a small switch on the unit, that switches OFF the ringer, or often one can turn it down, via a control on the unit. Other times one can set it Off or down in volume via the settings, use the manual in these case to ascertain what to do.

Above is a manual so you can check exactly what and how to do what you want.

If this cannot be done, then take the phones case OFF, locate the "Ringer" and disconnect it from the board, problem solved.

How do I set phone to ring at my extention?


Partner, all releases.
Examples
Receptionist Call Routing. If you want calls to be answered by the receptionist first, set the lines at the receptionist’s extension to Immediate Ring and the lines at the users’ extensions to No Ring. (This is the factory setting)
Receptionist Backup. If you want all calls on a line to ring directly at users’ extensions -with the receptionist providing backup -set the line at the users’ extensions to Immediate Ring. Then set the line (or lines) at the receptionist’s extension to Delayed Ring. An incoming call that is not answered by a user within 20 seconds will also ring at the receptionist’s extension.
Programming
To change the way outside lines or pools ring at an extension:
  1. Press [ Feature ] [ 0 ] [ 0 ] [ System Program ] [ System Program ] [ Central Tel Program ].
  2. Enter the number of the extension to be programmed for Line Ringing. The green lights next to the line or pool buttons on the phone show the current Line Ringing settings for all lines assigned to the extension. (If a line is not assigned to a button, the green light next to the button is off.) The following ringing options can be shown by the green light next to the line button.
    • Immediate Ring - on steady
    • Delayed Ring - flashes slowly
    • No Ring - flutters quickly
  3. To change Line Ringing for any line, press the line or pool button until the button light shows the correct setting (the setting for the currently selected line or pool also appears on the display).
  4. Continue programming or exit programming mode.

My kx t7730x doesnt have a ring but its receiving calls outside.


I'm guessing this is connected to a TA series system.

There is a ringer switch on the left side of the phone. Does it ring on intercom calls with the Auto Answer button not lit?

The 2 things that control the ringer for outside calls is the ringer switch and programming. Intercom calls ringing is controlled by the switch, Auto Answer button, and programming. If the switch is set to medium or high and the phone doesn't ring, try it at another extension. If it still doesn't ring, it's broken, if it rings, then you have programming issues.

Your voicemail thinks that it is ringing six times. The time that it takes to transfer to the extensions counts. Whiloe it seems that there is a lapse the system actually is using enough time to ring six times total. If you need longer ring time at the extension, take in account the transfer time and set it to pick up after 8 or 9 rings. It will actually only ring six. You just have to trick the system a little.

Forwarding calls between extensions


Yes, press Feature 4, then enter the extension of the line you wish to forward the ring to. You can also go into the phone configuration to forward after a set # of rings. To ring another extension at set times you will need admin access.
