How do I disable the password system on Nortel Meridian M3904

The Nortel Meridian phones in our office have passwords enabled. For many of us who don't handle critical company or financial information, the password system is just a nuisance. You have to enter it to get your messages, and you have to change it periodically. Is there any way to 'opt out' of the password system, and not use a password?

    We have phone systems that have been used by previous branches of the state. Our district manager called our phone servicing people and explained to them that we are having to reset our password every 2-3 months or so and the rep states there is no setting on our phone that prompts for this. He also goes on to say to me that because the floor below us doesn't seem to be having this problem, then we don't have this problem. In essence its just a mass hallucination and we are all experiencing this I guess!!! I am a bit irritated now as my phone is the main calling number and the rest of the staff is definitely frustrated as they end up locking themselves out of their phones then it takes days to get a reset. Which personally I do not understand. But anyway, please please clarify these steps you have listed, because I don't have a manual and what you posted is totally alien to me. thank you in advance

Nortel phone m3904 won't forward to an outside line

The DN may not be configured to allow forwarding to an outside line for security reasons. I think the default is 4 digits. You will need to talk to whomever programs your switch and ask them to allow this feature.

Working with old nortel meridian 1 phones 7208 when placing an outside call dials in pulse mode help

you will need the installers password and that is **266344 or **config. After you are in the system scroll through untill you get to dial mode than change back to pulse. If you cannot get into the system with that password someone has changed it. The password i have given you is the default password and 99.9% it is not changed. If it has been changed and you don't know it go to the phone system it might be tagged or marked on the system itself alot of techs do it that way.

How do I reset a password if I do not know the existing one?

Your system administrator (usually your senior secretary or whoever runs the phone system) needs to reset the password (automatically resets to 0000).

Retrieve a message

Depending on what VM system you have there is a feature # you key in.

For instance the Nortel Callpilot feature is "feature, 981" If this is your first time logging in you will have to enter a password. Contact your systems administrator to reset or set your password to never ask.

Meridan 7208 help please

Dear sheryl498,

Your phone is designed for a PBX (Private Branch Exchange) unit like the Compact ICS or the 6x16 TCU that was at the office. It is not compatible with regular POTS lines or standard home lines.
