Interesting, problem.

First off, you are not going to be able to reprogram the ip phones yourself. I just completed training on a similar network. This is way too much information that you need to have access to in order to program them (ip addresses, mac addresses and so on). Don't think because you know how to set the IP addresses on a computer you can do the phones. It is a totally different process.

You will need to telnet into the phone server, etc.etc. You will need to know factory codes for programming and access menus. etc.etc.

But, it doesn't sound like your telephones are the fault here. It would be really strange for all of them to go out at one time. It sounds more like a network problem or server issue.

Try rebooting the phone unit (server) and then rebooting a few phones and see if the system comes back up. Also check the network connections from your server to network switch. Also try some different ports incase you have a switch port failure.

I can assure you that this is not something you want to approach by yourself. I have been doing moderate IT work for years and the IP phones are still a little confusing to me.

Mitel 5220 ip phone locked out

Make sure that it is a Dual Mode 5220. If it is you can use it as a SIP extension. It wiill say it on the back of the Mitel phone next to the 5220.
If it is a dual mode phone you can purchase a sip trunk from a provider and then would be able to use the phone.
When you boot up the phone hold the blue super key while the phone boots, hit the no softkey till you get to phone mode. Hit yes it will allow you to change the phone from minet to sip. This should get you started in the right direction.
