Nortel M7000 series are proprietary sets which require a nortel MICS, CICS, or an older 8x24, 6x16, or 3x08 in order to work. If you have the system, it maybe that the jack isn't activated with a system port.

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.

No dial tone


try another M7208 phone using the same connection including the same line cord, if that phone works then the first phone is bad, if not then look for trouble at the outlet or line cord

Do the Norstar M7208 and Aastra 9120 phones compatible on the same PBX? I have a M7208 that works fine on current PBX, but new Aastra 9120 doesn't work. Should they both operate on the same PBX?


No, the M7208 is a propriatary set which requires the PBX to function, whereas the aastra phone is a stand alone set which requires a standard telephone line and a power source.

How do you set up caller ID on a Norstar M7208 phone with 4 lines?


There are a few other things you need before it will just work on your phones. You need to get Caller-Id activated by your carrier on each of the 4 lines. You also need to make sure your system has a Trunk card capable of Caller-Id. The card in your systems should be labeled CID.

After this you still need to program the lines for Caller-Id in the configuration section of programming.

Meridian M7208 Phone-Only 2 lines are working


Sounds like it might be a telco problem. Do lines 3 ,4 work on the other phones?
Switch lines 1 and 3 to see if the problem changes.

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.

Plugging it in


Your Nortel M7208 phone is plugged into your Norstar phone system (not the phone line) You would not be able to use DSL on the same phone port used by the M7208 phone. A filter connected to that port would not solve a DSL issue and could only cause problems with the M7208 phone. You may need to put the filter on the phone lines before they connect to the Nortel phone system... I don't know which system you have or how it is wired up so I am not sure how easy that would be for you.
