Do I need a network?

I am looking to buy a Meridian Business Telephone Model M5316 (M2616) for my home office. I am wondering if this will work.. I have only one line for the phone, but I am just wondering if it will be plug and play or if I will need to do something else.

Thanks :)

If that model phone has a rj14 jack ( standard phone jack) and when you plug it into a known good wall jack and you can draw dial tone then it will work. If not it requires a KSU to interface with the lines and that's a lot more equipment than you need for 1 or 2 lines. Thank you. Jer

Trying to change the number of rings before my phone goes to Voice Mail on the Meridian (Nortel) M5316. Only two rings currently so I miss a lot of calls. Thanks!


Depending what system your provider is using it can either be done by you at home or they will have to set it. If you call your provider they will help you or they will fix it. Each ring is set at 6 second intervals so if you have 3rings that is 18 seconds. If you was 6 rings then ask for 36 seconds etc. hope this helps

I have a Meridian M5316 and the there is an existing voicemail on the phone how do I change the voicemail without knowing the current password?


Your provider will have to reset it for you. Phone them and ask for a reset. They may charge you a dollar or so. But that is the only way

Previous users name comes up on screen, how to get rid of his/hers and insert mine? Do you have a user manual for the m2616 meeridian?


Those 2 items are "mutually exclusive". Take your 2616 phone and plug it in somewhere else and you'll see why. Unless you have auto set relocation, you will, indeed, change the display name.

Programming is stored in the PBX, possibly an "Option 11c". http://www142.nortelnetworks.com/mdfs_app/techdoc/enterprise/cs1000/M125_40/pdf/NQZHZWQH.pdf

Start looking in the 70's for instructions.

There is terrible static on all lines and the phone company states that it is our phone system. We have the Northstar Meridian M7324.


It sounds like a reboot of your system may be in order, When ever you have a system wide problem of this scope the main box on your wall is having trouble. power it down and power back up, this should fix it.

You will need a professional installer to do this for you.
Cross conecting and proper grounding required for any installations.

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.
