Phone Applications
Phone applications allow you to access the following:
• Call History
• Preferences

• Phone Information
• Administrator Settings (For system administrators only.)
Call History
Call History allows you to view information about the last 150 calls on your phone. A call icon is
displayed to indicate the type of call:
• Received
• Placed
• Missed
The caller ID is displayed with the call icon. If the caller ID is unavailable, then the phone number is
displayed. If the phone number is unavailable, then “Unknown” is displayed. All Call History items
are integrated into one list and are ordered by time (latest to oldest). There is 150 call limit per phone
and not per line. For example, if a phone has multiple lines, the 150 call limit is for all lines combined.
You can sort the Call History list by all lines, each line, or by missed calls. You can also dial a number
directly from the Call History list.

Call Forward All
Call Forward All allows you to forward calls on your phone to another number.
For your primary line, you can set up Call Forward All directly on your phone. For all other lines—or
to access Call Forward All remotely—go to your User Options web pages.
There are two types of call forwarding features that your system administrator might set up on your
phone:
• Unconditional call forwarding (Call Forward All)—Applies to all calls that you receive.
• Conditional call forwarding (Call Forward No Answer, Call Forward Busy, Call Forward No
Coverage)—Applies to certain calls that you receive, according to conditions, and is accessible
only from your User Options web pages.
When forwarding calls from your phone:
• Enter the call forward target number exactly as you would dial it from your phone. For example,
enter an access code or the area code, if necessary.
• Call forwarding is phone-line specific. If a call reaches you on a line where call forwarding is not
enabled, the call will ring as usual.
• Your system administrator can set up other call forward options that:
– Allow calls placed from the call forward target number to your phone to ring through, rather
than be forwarded.
– Prevent you from creating a call forward loop or exceeding the maximum number of links in
a call forwarding chain.

Call Park
Call Park allows you to park (temporarily store) a call you receive on your phone, and which you can
then retrieve from another phone (for example, a phone at a co-worker’s desk or in a conference
room).
There are two ways you can park a call:
• Park—Allows you to park an active call that you answered on your phone, and retrieve it using
another phone in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager system.
• Directed Call Park—Allows you to park and retrieve an active call in two different ways:
– Assisted Directed Call Park—Allows you to park an active call by pressing a line button,
which your system administrator sets up as a speed dial line.
With this type of directed call, you can monitor the status of the line (in-use, idle, or in Do
Not Disturb state) using Line Status indicators.
– Manual Directed Call Park—Allows you to park an active call by transferring it to a Directed
Call number, which your system administrator sets up.
You retrieve the call at another phone by dialing a park retrieval prefix number (provided by
your system administrator), then dialing the Directed Call number you used to park the call.
Your system administrator sets up either the Directed Call Park or Park feature on your phone, but
not both.

Calling Features
Call Pickup
Call Pickup allows you to answer a call that is ringing on a co-worker’s phone by redirecting the call
to your phone.
You might use Call Pickup if you share call-handling tasks with co-workers.
There are three ways you can pick up a call:
• Pickup—Allows you to answer a call that is ringing on another phone within your call pickup
group.
If multiple calls are available for pick up, your phone picks up the oldest call first (the call that
has been ringing for the longest time).
• Group Pickup—Allows you to answer a call on a phone that is outside your call pickup group by:
– Using a group pickup number (provided by your system administrator).
– Dialing the ringing phone’s number.
• Other Pickup—Allows you to answer a call that is ringing on another phone within in your call
pickup group or in an associated call pickup group.
Your system administrator sets up the call pickup group you are in, and the call pickup softkeys
depending on your call-handling needs and work environment.
You can also monitor and pick up ringing calls using Line Status indicators if your system
administrator has set up Line Status indicators on speed-dial buttons for you. Line Status indicators
allow you to see if a line associated with a speed-dial button is idle, in-use, in a Do Not Disturb state,
or ringing.

Calling Features
Codes
Codes allow you to place a call using a billing or tracking code. Your phone supports two types of
codes (provided by your administrator):
• Client Matter Codes (CMC) require you to enter a code to specify that the call relates to a specific
client matter. Your administrator can assign client matter codes to customers, students, or other
populations for call accounting and billing purposes.
• Forced Authorization Codes (FAC) allow you to manage call access and accounting. The Forced
Authorization Codes feature requires that the user enter a valid authorization code before the call
connects.
Place a Call Using a Client Matter Code
1. Dial a number.
2. After the tone, enter a client matter code (CMC).
Place a Call Using a Forced Authorization Code
1. Dial a number.
2. After the tone, enter a forced authorization code (FAC).
Conference
Conference allows you to talk simultaneously with multiple parties.
When you are talking on a call, use Conference to dial another party and add them to the call.
If you have multiple phone lines, you can alternately use Conference to combine two calls across two
lines. For example, if you have a call on Line 1 and a call on Line 2, you can combine the calls into a
conference.
Before completing a conference procedure, you can press the Cancel softkey to cancel the procedure
or you can press the Swap softkey to toggle between calls, allowing you to speak privately with each

Product Safety, Security, Accessibility, and Related
Information
Safety and Performance Information
Power outages and other devices can affect your Cisco Unified IP Phone.
Power Outage
Your accessibility to emergency service through the phone is dependent on the phone being powered.
If there is an interruption in the power supply, Service and Emergency Calling Service dialing will not
function until power is restored. In the case of a power failure or disruption, you may need to reset or
reconfigure equipment before using the Service or Emergency Calling Service dialing.
External Devices
Cisco recommends using good quality external devices (such as headsets) that are shielded against
unwanted radio frequency (RF) and audio frequency (AF) signals.
Depending on the quality of these devices and their proximity to other devices such as mobile phones
or two-way radios, some audio noise may still occur. In these cases, Cisco recommends that you take
one or more of the following actions:
• Move the external device away from the source of the RF or AF signals.
• Route the external device cables away from the source of the RF or AF signals.
• Use shielded cables for the external device, or use cables with a better shield and connector.
• Shorten the length of the external device cable.
• Apply ferrites or other such devices on the cables for the external device.
Cisco cannot guarantee the performance of the system because Cisco has no control over the quality
of external devices, cables, and connectors. The system will perform adequately when suitable devices
are attached using good quality cables and connectors.
Caution
In European Union countries, use only external speakers, microphones, and headsets that
are fully compliant with the EMC Directive [89/336/EC].
