Usually Meridian phones are hooked up to telephone switching boxes in the back of the office. There designed for non analog phone lines.

Nortel does make home phones that are really good to use. Check their website out.

SOURCE: The dial tone has gone back to the old rotary system

the system has a 1 farad capacitor (You cannot miss it when you open the system as it looks like a large lithium cell) the charge from the capacitor is is used as a backup battery. the capacitor costs about $ 5. you must use a good soldering iron while changing the capacitor. and observe the polarity while repcing the cap. Or simply get an external battery backup iunit they rae inexpensive now.
hope you find the infio useful.

Hi Evygal,

There is nothing to worry about it because this phone supports a speed dialing feature , which means that you can program the numbers in a way that just pressing them in a specific way usually for some more time than a usual press of a button will automatically enable the speed dial function and the phone will call the number that has been programmed on the digit.

A good idea to not face this problem is to quickly remove the finger off the button when you press it , because keeping it for long , just as long as one sec can enable this speed dialing feature.

Hope that helps ..:) Let me know in case you have any queries, would love to help you.

Norstar meridian 7208 won't ring.


Does it ring when you move it to a known ringing port? Is it programmed to ring (Terminals & Sets) Appear and Ring? Do you have Automatic Set Relocation turned on so the extension number stays with the phone?

There are a lot of features to check for ringing, including the volume of the set.

My store had a huge power outage where the lines were sparking. Anyway since the power has come back on I have no ring & can not dial an extention after i dial a phone number. I have looked in the...


So you're saying you can dial a phone number, but when the voicemail system answers you can't dial an extension number ? If that's the case, that means your phone system reset. Generally that means all phones will have access to only line 1 and 2, and that they'll be ringing on all phones. The date would usually change to Jan. 1st 1980, but caller-ID might override that. All line programming would be set to pulse, which would be the cause of you not being able to dial an extension number a voicemail system answers. It would also mean that when you do dial a phone number it takes a while before you hear it ringing. (Because the phone system is dialing in pulse instead of tone, if you stand next to the phone system you'll probably hear it go)

... Long story short, your entire phone system needs to be reprogrammed. I suggest only doing a partial reprogramming, then unplugging the power for a few minutes and check to see if the programming stuck. If not, the battery in your system also needs to be changed.

CAN I TRANSFER CALLS TO ANOTHER NUMBER IF I DON'T HAVE THIS FEATURE HOW DO I GET IT


To transfer a call on a m 7208 while talking to the caller press feature 70 then the number of the extension you want to transfer the call to. You can wait to speak to the co worker to tell them who's being transfered to them or just hang up. Either way when you hang up the call is transfered.

I am trying to figure what my extension is? I have an M7208 Nortel


Do a button inquiry to find your prime line(intercom number). Press feature *0 then the button you want to identify. Your prime line will be either the bottom programmable button or the next one up.
The button defintion will appear in the LCD screen for each button inquiry you do.
