Nortel meridian phones:m7310

Need to sort a few things out on the setup we have,

At the moment there are 3 phones on the incomming call, it will ring on the first for 13 rings then move onto the next, then the next and back to the first

how was this setup and can i add more lines and change it to 10 rings before it moves on? i would like to have it move straight on to the next phone if the first is engaged.

There are ppl that can pick up and they do with the feature 76 but they arnt hearing the main 3 phones ring from the other side of the office, ive turned the volume up on those which will help for now.

Is it also possible to program in the feature76 then the number for the main phone so whoever has to pickup from another phone can just hit 1 button?

Thanks for any help

    Hi Carl,

    Thanks for your response,

    ok very sorry ive misunderstood how its set up at the moment

    this was how it used to be setup
    the phone would ring from the main 1, if she was already on the phone it would ring for 13 rings then move onto the second extension, if noone answered by then (and if they havnet hung up) it moved onto the 3rd extension then back to the first.

    The way its setup now it only rings from the main phone and if shes on the phone it will ring for 13 rings then go to an answer phone where im not sure what options they get. Every time i try to test it someone picks up the phone or someone rings in lol.

    From another phone when a call is comming in feature 75 then 0 just rings the reception where feature 76 then 0 answers the call

    For now, is it possibly where ppl that hear the phone and answer press feature 76 then 0, can that be programmed to 1 key.

    How would i extend the rings for the main phone and if these answer messages lead to nowhere can i remove them.

    thanks for the help and i appolagise for getting the question wrong in the first place

How many people sit around for 39 rings???

Are you saying that LINE 1 rings the first extension, say 21 for 13 rings, then the second ext, say 22 for 13 rings, or does line 1's ring move to line 2?

System programming is your friend. You can make the other phones ring directly or delayed.

Last, what happens when you dial FEATURE 75? If the phones are in the same GROUP, and they would have no reason not to, it picks up the call immediately. FEAT *3 button FEAT 75 programs a spare button to do it.

    Feature 75 has no argument, it's the Group call pickup feature. If it doesn't work, then you needed to put the phones into the same pickup group. You can program any button that is not a line or intercom with the command Feature *3 button Feature 760.

    Thirteen rings is absolutely stupid. So is ringing only one phone. Programming is not something that's shared in an open forum. Features are easy, but programming of line appearance and ring requires system access which, if used by the wrong people could disable a system.

    You might want to spend an hour with a system manual and see if you can't figure out how to change line ringing for your system.

Remove the ringing from incoming calls on a norstar. I have multiple extensions in the building but want the incoming calls only to ring to a few extensions

You need administrative rights to get into the PBX. Once in there, you can assign which phones receive incoming calls. It has been years since I worked on the meridian system, so I can't tell you the way to do it, but it is in the manual. It's not complicated. You can also set it up for DAY/NIGHT mode so that in the evening, if required, all phones could ring on incoming calls so that anyone in the building can answer them.

My M7310 won't forward a call to the next open line but gives a busy signal

Hard to answer because your problem description does not match the part.
Nortel Meridian M7208 Corded Phone is a digital phone which works off a phone system.Also note that the carrier controls the rollover, not the phone or its system.

Once you have more/proper details maybe you can be helped.

All of a sudden the line lights on our nortel switch Meridian M7310 phones started blinking and the lines are dead. Any ideas?

If you only have one line,why not just lose the Nortel system? You can reuse the wiring from the phone sets to the contoller as regular inside wire,and just plug in regular phones(and maybe put the Nortel phones and controller on EBay and make a few bucks off it!)

How to setup caller id?

Have your tech look again. A keyword search of CALLER ID in the pdf should explain it all, especially page 158 of a 6.1 CICS manual.

You need 2 things to make it work. One is that your phone has to be ringing. Two is that Under Telco Features in programming for your set is a CALLER ID set which is No by default.

Of course, FEAT 811/812 will work after the fact.

M7310 phone not ringing audibally

If the internal calls dont ring, then there is something with the extension. When a call is ringing the phone, press the UP VOLUME. Chances are that someone accidentally turned the ringer all the way down.

Let me know if that doesnt work.
