We have at&t 1070 phones. Intercom not working on one phone

We have 5 of the at&t 1070 phones. 4 of them work fine, but the 5th station will not work with call transfer or intercom. We switched out the phones and determined that the phone is ok. We also checked with our wiring people who let us know that there is only 500 ft of wire (well below the 600 ft limit) The total office space is only 1500 square ft. What is wrong?

SOURCE: no intercom connection between handsets

Here is a link to the uniden manual link and an excerpt from the manual section which deals with your problem :

The handset doesn't
communicate with other
• De-register the handset (see "De-register the Handset" on page 32) and register the handset
(see "Register the Handset" on page 68).
• Make sure that you have registered all handsets.
An extra handset can't join
the conversation.
• Make sure there are not 2 handsets already using the 3-way conference feature.
The handset or the base can't
join the conversation
• Make sure that another handset or base is in privacy mode.

To register a TCX805 handset, simply place it in the main base.
While the handset is registering, H a n d s e t R e g i s t e r i n g will appear in the LCD.
When R e g i s t r a t i o n c o m p l e t e . is displayed, the handset has been registered to
the base. If R e g i s t r a t i o n f a i l e d . appears, please try these steps again.
To register a ELX500, TCX440, or TCX400 handset, follow the steps below:
1) Disconnect the AC adapter from the main base.
2) While pressing down flash/find hs, reconnect the AC adapter.
3) On the handset, press and hold # until you hear a beep.
While the handset is registering, H a n d s e t R e g i s t e r i n g will appear in the LCD. When
R e g i s t r a t i o n c o m p l e t e . is displayed, the handset has been registered to the base. If
R e g i s t r a t i o n f a i l e d . appears, please try these steps again.

SOURCE: Problems with Intercom

Yes, you just need to program those buttons on your phone. Press "feature" then "redial" then press the button you want to program, then press "1" then it's extension # (example: 1-0-0 to program the button for extension 100) then press "feature". After you've programmed those extensions, the intercom should work.

Just in case you missed the manual:

There are 2 conditions you need to be aware of

1 No DSL on the line
2. Set the intercom extension of the second phone

By default, both have been assigned ext 11. The intercom uses the same frequencies as a DSL line to transmit, so that could be the noise you are hearing.

Page 23 tells you how to set the intercom extension, and the DSL warning is almost at the bottom of every page from 18-22.

Intercom not working properly on one of 5 AT&T 1040 Phones

About the last phone, the one you are having problems with, is it closer to the one across the hall as opposed to the next one on the same side? Also/or, are the phones being answered on handsfree mode/speaker mode, or are the handsets being picked up? The reason I'm asking is because it sounds like a feedback problem and this is usually caused by too much volume on the phone and it does make it sound like someone is under water. Try a few calls and push the volume down on the other phone as you listen. You might find a big improvement on the sound quality. Hope this helps!!

Line 1 disconnects people on hold

Try these first and let me know
Intercom does not function correctly
• Make sure line 1 is connected properly and common to all phones on the system.
• Make sure all phone ID’s (station numbers) involved have been assigned.
Transfer does not function correctly
• Make sure receiver phones (stations) have same line connected.
Intercom indicator turns red and green alternately
• The station address needs to be re-assigned due to a duplicate station address in the system. See “Changing the Phone ID (Station Address)”.
Good luck,

How can i transfer calls from one phone to another?

First make sure you give each phone an ID on your system. You do this by going into the menu and go to phone options then scroll down to phone ID then press the intercom station button you want assigned for this phone. To transfer call: With caller on the line just press transfer then the intercom station button of the room (intercom station) you want it transferred to. If it is not answered in 45 seconds the extension stops ringing and call is placed on hold

The phones won't ring when calls are coming in. The lights on the phone light up but there is no sound

Uh oh, I just saw this. Is it in the main board 101-108 exts, or one of the expansion boards?

Ringing is set 3 ways, by the switch on the side of the phone, by programming, by features. First, make sure the switch is in the ring position and have someone call you on the intercom. If it rings, have someone transfer an outside call to you. If it rings, try dialing 790 on the intercom to reset station features. If none of this works, It's time to look at ring programming. It's done from the system programming mode at the main phone or from a PC. It's program codes 408-410 or section 3.2 from the Maintenance console.

The last ugly thing is it's a hardware failure.

Merging 2 siemens gigaset 4215 systems (one base with 2 phones + 2 phones)

If you're trying to get 5 handsets to work with one base, it won't work. The 4215 can only handle 4 handsets, the base handset plus 3.

When I had to replace the base of my 4 handset system, the base handset still worked. Therefore I had an extra handset which couldn't be used. So I decided to buy another base. Now I have 6 handsets which can be grouped 4,2 or 3,3.

Adding an extension

If you program that button to ba a DSS button for that station (41) it will intercom that station, can be used to transfer calls to that station, and will light up when it's busy. It could be called something else in programming like Station Intercom Button, Quick Transfer Key, etc..

Problem is, your phone can be used on many different Avaya phone systems that all program differently.

The manuals for the phones and systems are all available free at but you need to know which system you have before looking for the manual.

Transfer a call

I put it on hold, then use the intercom to notify another station to pick it up.

Each of the six phones must have line 1 connected to the same "subscriber loop" (the same phone number). Assuming this is the case, and that you have not assigned any numbers to the the top six speed-dial buttons, each station will have agreed to be assigned a station number.

From any station, pressing the speed-dial button for another station's station number will page that station.

Now, how to properly initiate an intercom conversation differs between announcing to another station that a call is on hold, or a "cold call".
