Introduction
Thank you for purchasing Aastra’s 9516CW telephone. We think you’ll find it’s full of
exciting features. With a built-in digital answering machine, personal Directory, and a
Callers list, your new telephone is designed to take full advantage of the latest services
offered by your local telephone company.
When you subscribe to services such as Calling Line Identification and Call Waiting Identification† through your local telephone company, your 9516CW will show you all the
caller information you’ll need on its three-line back-lit display. For example, before you
even answer a call you’ll know who is calling, even if it’s a Call Waiting call. And Call
Waiting identification information can appear on two telephone extensions at the same
time so that someone at either extension can initiate the switch to a Call Waiting call. Your
telephone will also tell you how many messages and new callers you have.
The answering machine doesn’t need an audio tape or batteries to work, so it’s easy to set
up. All you have to do is plug in your telephone and it’s ready to receive messages. It’s
also very reliable. You will not lose any of your messages or greetings (outgoing messages) if there is a power failure of up to 72 hours.
You can set up a personal Directory in which you can enter up to 75 names and numbers.
And for each of these numbers, you can record personalized greetings and Call Announcements (Voice Tags).
Your Callers List will log up to 75 incoming calls and messages, and you can now record
personalized greetings and Call Announcements (Voice Tags) to numbers stored in memory keys.
The Options List makes it easy for you to personalize your telephone, and the back-lit
three-line display provides walk-through prompting that makes all of the many features
and options even easier to customize. Please read on for more information on the many
features of your 9516CW.
† The
names of these services may vary from area to area.

Calling Line Identification information is sent from the telephone company to your
9516CW telephone between the first and second ring (if you subscribe to the Calling Line
Identification service through your local telephone company). Therefore, if you want the
telephone number of the incoming call to appear on the display and in the Callers List, you
must wait until the information appears on the display before answering the telephone.

Note : The 9516CW automatically releases the held call when a person on an extension
telephone picks up the call. If you don’t hang up the handset after you have put a
call on hold and that call is picked up by someone at another extension, the call is
taken off hold but remains connected to your telephone. If this happens, any background noise from your area will be heard by the caller and the person at the other
extension.

Greetings
When the answering machine is turned on, a greeting is played to your incoming callers

not to use the factory General Greeting, you can record your own. See The General
Greeting on page 14 for more information.
The Special Greeting is the same as the General Greeting except that it is activated by a
distinctive ring. See The Special Greeting
on page 14 for more information.
When you have the Call Blocking option turned on, your 9516CW intercepts calls from
people who have blocked their telephone numbers and plays the Private Greeting. See
The Private Greeting
on page 15 and Call Blocking on page 51 for more information.
Personal greetings are played when you want a specific greeting played to people that you
have entered in your Directory or memory keys. See Directory on page 20, Personalized Greetings for Directory entries
on page 26, and Personalized Greetings for Memory keys
on page 38 for more information.
You can also assign Mailbox greetings to selected groups of people that have been entered
into your Directory. See Mailbox Greetings
on page 30 and Directory on page 20
for more information.
To achieve the best sound quality for recorded greetings and Call Announcements, it is
recommended that you record by speaking into the handset instead of the handsfree microphone.
Sometimes callers choose not to listen to your greeting before recording a message. They
can press £ to skip your greeting and leave a message immediately. Note, however, that
pressing £ will not allow callers to skip the Automated Attendant greeting.
Note: The Special, Private, and Personalized Greeting features require that you subscribe
to your telephone company for the Calling Line Identification service.

The General Greeting
If you choose not to use the factory-recorded General Greeting, you can record your own.
The purpose of the General Greeting is to greet your callers and provide them with information about leaving messages. After you finish recording, you should replay your greeting to ensure it sounds the way you intended.
For example:
“Hi. This is Mike Prentice. I’m unable to take your call right now. Please leave a message after the tone and I will return your call as soon as possible.”
While you are recording your greeting, you can press ˙ to pause. A pause is useful if
you are interrupted while you are recording your greeting. When you are ready to continue
recording your greeting, press ˙again. The pause is not included in your greeting
and will not be heard by the callers.
Note : Although you can use either Handsfree or the handset to record your greeting, a
better recording results when you speak directly into the handset.
The Special Greeting
The Special Greeting is activated by a Distinctive Ring. For your telephone to receive a
Distinctive Ring, you must subscribe to your telephone company for Distinctive Ringing†.
The telephone company will then provide you with an additional telephone number that
has a slightly different ring. The 9516CW will use the two ring types to determine whether
the caller should hear the General Greeting or the Special Greeting.
For example, the Special Greeting could be very useful if you are operating a business out
of your home. You could record a residential message for the General Greeting, and then
record a business message for the Special Greeting, as follows:
General Greeting - “Hi you’ve reached the Anderson’s. We’re unable to take your call
right now. Please leave your name and number and we’ll give you a call back as soon
as we can.”
Special Greeting - “Thank you for calling Anderson Graphics. No one is available to
take your call right now. Please leave your name and number and someone will get
back to you as soon as possible.”
All you would have to do in this case is give your business customers and associates your
Distinctive Ringing number, and they would only hear the business message (the Special
Greeting). On the other hand, friends and family who have your regular home number
would only hear the residential message (the General Greeting).
You can also have a caller who doesn’t have the Distinctive Ring number hear the Special
Greeting by assigning it to that caller’s number in the Directory or a memory key.
Note : If you subscribe to Long Distance Ringing, then the Special Greeting will be
played when you receive a long distance call. Also, you cannot use the Special
Greeting and the Fax Switch feature at the same time.
† The actual name for the Distinctive Ringing service varies from area to area. This service may also be known as
Ident-a-call, Ident-a-ring, Teen Service, Signal Ring, Custom Ringing or Long Distance Ringing.

The Private Greeting
The Private Greeting is played to callers who have blocked the display of their telephone
numbers. Calling Line Identification for these callers appears as “Private name” and/or
“Private number”.
You must record the Private Greeting before it can be played to callers who have blocked
their telephone numbers or names. If you do not record a Private Greeting, these callers
will hear the General Greeting.
For example:
“You are calling from a private number, please identify the number you are calling
from and I will return the call.”
The Private Greeting is commonly used in conjunction with the Call Blocking feature. For
more information about the Call Blocking feature, see Call Blocking on page 51.

Directory
The 9516CW stores the numbers and names of up to 75 of your business associates, clients, contacts, and friends in your Directory. You can dial these numbers by selecting
them.
Names are sorted alphabetically starting with their first character. (If you want your
Directory sorted by the last name, enter the last name first.) If you do not enter a name, the
item is sorted by telephone number. The Directory items with only a telephone number are
numerically sorted at the beginning of the Directory.
You also use the Directory to assign Personalized Greetings, Mailbox Greetings and Call
Announcements (Voice Tags) to phone numbers.
A greeting is the message that callers hear when they are leaving a message on the
9516CW. These greetings can be personalized for a particular person or group of people
stored in your Directory. (For more information on greetings in general, see Greetings
on page 13.)
A mailbox is a storage place for messages. The 9516CW has 12 mailboxes. When someone calls and their number matches a Directory item, the call is automatically routed to the
mailbox assigned to it in the Directory. (For more information about mailboxes, see
Mailboxes on page 29 and Mailbox Greetings
on page 30.)
A Call Announcement (Voice Tag) can be recorded for each person that you have entered
into your Directory. This announcement is played through the handsfree speaker of the
9516CW when someone at that number calls so you know who is calling without looking
at the telephone display. (For more information about Call Announce (Voice Tag), see
Call Announce (Voice Tag)
on page 22).
Note : To achieve the best sound quality for recorded greetings and Call Announcements,
it is recommended t hat you record by speaking into the handset instead of the
handsfree microphone.

Mailboxes
The 9516CW is equipped with 12 mailboxes for individual message storage. It uses Calling Line Identification information to send the incoming calls to the assigned mailboxes
automatically.† When an incoming number matches an entry in the Directory, the call is
routed to the assigned mailbox. If there is no match to a Directory entry, the calls are
routed to the General mailbox.
When an incoming call is routed to a mailbox, that caller hears the greeting recorded for
that mailbox. This greeting is called a mailbox greeting. You can record a different mailbox greeting for each of the mailboxes. If you do not record a greeting for a particular
mailbox, the greeting recorded for the General mailbox is used. For more information
about mailbox greetings, see Mailbox Greetings
on page 30.
There are three classes of mailboxes:
Normal - The 9516CW plays the mailbox greeting and then callers are given an opportunity to leave a message.
Announce Only - A mailbox greeting is played to the caller, but the caller is not given
an opportunity to leave a message. This type of mailbox provides information to the caller
(for example, a greeting that states hours the business is open).
Ring Through - The callers hear a tone indicating that they are on hold, but the
9516CW rings to let you know someone is in that mailbox. If you do not answer after four
rings, the General Mailbox Greeting is played. The 9516CW plays a message to the caller
that no one is available to take their call and to leave a message. This type of mailbox is
used only with the Automated Attendant feature. See Automated Attendant
on page

Mailbox Greetings
Each of the 12 mailboxes on the 9516CW can have a specific greeting assigned to it. These
greetings are called Mailbox greetings.
Mailbox greetings allow you to assign a particular greeting to one or more callers. The
caller’s telephone number must match one of the numbers in the Directory and be assigned
to a mailbox. When a call is received from callers assigned to a mailbox, they will hear the
greeting assigned to that mailbox.
For example, John entered the numbers of his baseball teammates into his Directory and
assigned them all to one particular mailbox. Then he recorded a greeting for that mailbox
that contained information about baseball practice. Now, when any of his teammates calls
from a number he has stored in his Directory, the 9516CW plays the following message:
“Hi team, the baseball practice has been rescheduled to Friday. Leave me a message to
let me know if you can still attend.”
The 9516CW plays a factory-recorded General Greeting unless you record your own General Greeting. Each mailbox will contain the General Greeting (the factory-recorded one
or your own recorded one) until you record a unique mailbox greeting. You record mailbox
greetings in the Greeting list.
Sometimes callers choose not to listen to your greeting before recording a message. They
can press £ to skip your greeting and leave their message immediately.

Assigning people to a Mailbox
A person’s telephone number must be entered into the Directory before you can assign
that person to a mailbox. For more information on Directory entries, see Creating a
New Directory Entry
on page 21.
You can assign a mailbox to a group of family members or colleagues. Every person in
this group will hear the same greeting. Also, only messages left by this group are stored in
this mailbox.

Follow steps 2 through 6 until you have all the people you want assigned to the mailbox.
Callers who do not appear in the Directory can also be directed to a mailbox. For callers to
leave a message in a specific mailbox, they must enter the mailbox number before they
record their message. For this to work properly you must inform the caller which number
to press to get the right mailbox.
For example, you may have three people who share the 9516CW and they want to have
their messages stored in separate mailboxes.
“Hello, we are unable to take your call right now. To leave a message for Bob, press ⁄;
to leave a message for John, press ¤; to leave a message for Adam, press ‹
When a caller who wants to speak to Bob presses ⁄that caller’s message is stored in mailbox 1.

The page feature of the 9516CW allows you to send a page message to other 9516CW
telephones, to an external speaker within your office, or to other page- compatible 9000
series telephones (such as the 9417CW). Before you can use this feature, you must program one memory key on each telephone in the paging network to be the page key. Also,

on your telephone is set to either “Name Only” or “Name or Number”, either the Call
Announce (Voice Tag) or the number of the caller who phones your telephone will be
heard over the other Page-enabled telephones and any attached external speakers. For
example, if you have Joe’s number stored in your Directory with the Call Announce, “It’s
Joe calling,” and Joe calls your Page-enabled telephone, all phones in the paging network
will hear, “It’s Joe calling,” before they hear Joe’s page message.

Selecting the dial pad mode
When you select the dial pad mode, you are turning the Live dial pad option on or off.
With Live dial pad on, the telephone automatically dials out and turns on Handsfree as
soon as you press a dial pad key or a memory key. When Live dial pad is off, the telephone
is in regular or predial mode. This means after you dial the telephone number you must lift
the handset or press either ∂ or © before the telephone number is dialed. The
Live dial pad option default is off.

Entering area codes
When you enter an area code or prefix using this feature, your 9516CW telephone will
remove that code or prefix from incoming numbers. For example, if you enter your area
code into this option, all calls in your area code will appear in the Callers List with the
area code stripped off (the area code will appear in brackets after the number). This feature
may make it easier to identify local calls. You can enter three separate area codes or prefixes, each up to seven digits long.
To enter area codes and prefixes:
1.
Press the Set Options key.
2.
Use ª to scroll to number 7 or press ‚‡ to go directly to the item.

Entering Dialing Restrictions
Dialing Restrictions are used to prevent certain numbers from being dialed out. There are
three codes (up to seven digits each) that can be programmed to prevent certain numbers
from being dialed. If you attempt to dial a number that matches the restricted digits, the
message, Restricted number, appears on the display. For example, if you entered the
codes below:
1st code> 0
2nd code>1
3rd code> 411
Any number beginning with 0, 1 or 411 could not be dialed from the telephone. However,
the number 555-0411 could be dialed because it does not begin with the restricted digits.
To enter Dialing Restrictions:
1.
Press the Set Options key.
2.
Use ª to scroll to number 23 or press ¤‹ to go directly to the item.
3.

dial the emergency services number 911.
47
The Security Numbers feature
The 9516CW is equipped with a Security Numbers feature to keep selected numbers private when you dial. When you have entered a security number using this option, your telephone does not display or store the digits that you dial after that security number. Instead,
the numbers that follow the security number are replaced with the * symbol on the display.
You can secure up to five 12-digit numbers.
For example, Joe enters 291-9000 as a security number through the Set Options list. His
Voice Mail number is 1234 and his password is 5678. To access his messages, Joe dials
291-9000 1234 5678. Because the Voice Mail number and password follow the security
number, the display shows 291-9000 **** ****, and Joe’s password is not displayed or
stored in the Redial List. For more information on the Redial List, refer to Using the
Redial List on page 7.
To enter security numbers:
1.

The Fax Switch
The Fax Switch feature allows you to have two telephone numbers on one incoming line.
There is one telephone number for the line and another telephone number for a Fax Switch
peripheral (e.g. fax machine).
To use the Fax Switch, you must subscribe to your telephone company for Distinctive
Ringing†. The telephone company will then provide you with an additional telephone
number (for your Fax Switch peripheral) which will have a slightly different ring. The
9516CW will use the two ring types to determine whether an incoming call is for the telephone or the peripheral. The peripheral should be set to answer after three or more rings.
Note: If Long Distance Ringing† is available in your area, long distance calls will be sent
to the Fax Switch peripheral. Also, you cannot use the Fax Switch feature and the
Special Greeting feature at the same time.
The 9516CW must be configured so the Fax Switch peripheral is connected to pins 3 and 4
of jack number 2. See Connecting an optional fax machine or modem
on
page 4 for more information.
Note: If you subscribe to your telephone company for Call Waiting services, your Fax
Switch peripheral may lose data or get disconnected if someone calls while your
fax is receiving data. We recommend that you do not subscribe to the Call Waiting
service from your telephone company if you are using the Fax Switch feature.
Incoming Calls
The first ring of an incoming call will ring at the 9516CW and the Fax Switch peripheral.
The 9516CW uses this ring to identify which device the call is intended for. If it is a normal ring, the call is routed to the 9516CW and the Fax Switch peripheral stops ringing and
is disconnected. If it is a distinctive ring, the call is rerouted to the Fax Switch peripheral
and the 9516CW stops ringing.
Outgoing Calls
When the Fax Switch peripheral is idle, the 9516CW can be used as a normal line. When
the Fax Switch peripheral is in use, the set indicator light and Extension in use appears
on the display.
Setting the Fax Switch
You can program the telephone to enable or disable the Fax Switch feature.
To set the Fax Switch:
1.
Press the Options key.
2.
Use ª to scroll to number 20 or press ¤‚.
3.
Press • to enable or to disable the Fax Switch.
4.
Press ®.
Note: For proper operation of this feature, all of the 9516CW telephones/peripherals
must have the Fax Switch enabled. By default, the Fax Switch is off.
†
The actual name for the Distinctive Ringing service varies from area to area. This service may also be known as Ident-a-call,
Ident-a-ring, Teen Service, Signal Ring, Custom Ringing or Long Distance Ringing.
49
Copying the Directory to another 9516CW telephone
The contents of the Directory of one 9516CW telephone can be copied into the Directory
of another 9516CW. You can save a lot of programming time by copying the contents of a
completed Directory to another Directory instead of entering the names and numbers
again. The contents of the Directory can also be transferred into any other 8000 & 9000
series telephone that supports Directory transfer. (For example, the 9417CW).
While the Directory is being transferred, the telephone is out of service.
Note : Both 9516CW telephones must have separate telephone numbers.
To copy the Directory to another 9516CW telephone:
Steps 1 to 3 must be completed on both 9516CW telephones.
Note : You can only transfer the Directory to one 9516CW at a time.
1.
Press the Set Options key.
2.
Use ª to scroll to number 24 or press ¤› to go directly to the item.
Note : Once you have enabled the Data transfer option, you have four minutes to
begin the data transfer before the option times out.
3.
Follow the instructions on the display to begin the Directory transfer.
4.
On the 9516CW telephone you are copying the Directory from, use handsfree mode
to dial the telephone number of the other 9516CW. The receiving 9516CW automatically answers the call after the first ring and begins copying the data being sent. The
display shows a message indicating that the Directory information is being sent and
received.
Note : The handset must remain in the cradle while the Directory is being transferred. During the transfer, press the left side of √ to turn down the volume.
5.
The display shows: Data transfer complete when the Directory Transfer is complete. If the transfer is unsuccessful, the display shows: Data transfer aborted.
Note : To end the Directory Transfer at any time, press ®.
If the Directory on the telephone receiving the information fills before the Directory
Transfer is finished, the rest of the Directory items are not sent. For example, if the telephone receiving the information already has 50 items in its Directory, only the first 25
Directory items are transferred.
When you transfer directory items from one 9516CW to another, any information such as
call announcements/voice tags, mailbox greetings or mailbox numbers are not transferred. You need to re-enter this information to the receiving 9516CW.
Note : If you subscribe to the Call Waiting service from your telephone company and
someone calls while the Directory Transfer is in progress, the transfer may be corrupted by the Call Waiting tone.
50
Call Blocking
The Call Blocking feature detects “Private Name” and/or “Private number” incoming
calls. When “Private Name” or “Private number” calls are received, Call Blocking directs
the call to be answered after the first ring by the answering machine. The caller will hear
the Private Greeting if you have recorded one. See The Private Greeting
on page 15
for more information. The Call Blocking option default is off.
For example:
You may be receiving nuisance calls from “Private Number” and/or “Private Name” callers. Enabling Call Blocking sends these types of calls to the answering machine after the
first ring instead of interrupting you.
To enable call blocking:
1.
Press the Set Options key.
2.
Use ª to scroll to number 16 or press ⁄ fl to go directly to the item.
3.
Press • to enable or disable call blocking.

Automated Attendant
The Automated Attendant feature of the 9516CW works as the receptionist for a small
business. When activated, the Automated Attendant prompts provide a list of options so
your callers can:
• receive information
• leave messages
• be connected to an operator
The Automated Attendant feature provides your callers with commands to use each of
these options. The callers press the key on the dial pad associated with the option they
want to activate.
When the Automated Attendant feature is turned on, callers always hear the Automated
Attendant greeting, even if you have recorded a personal greeting. Callers cannot skip the
Automated Attendant greeting by pressing £.
Example of Automated Attendant
The following example explains how to set up the mailboxes and greetings to use the automated attendant.
Joe’s Bistro has some customers who prefer to use English and some who prefer to use
Italian. For this reason, Joe has decided to change his automated attendant to include both
languages.
The first thing Joe did was subscribe to his telephone company to get Distinctive Ringing
service. This gives him one telephone number for his English customers and one for his
Italian customers.
Next, Joe recorded his General Mailbox Greeting:
“Thank you for calling Joe’s Bistro. For today’s lunch specials, press ⁄; for our business hours, press ¤; to leave a message, press ‹; to speak to Joe, press ›.”
Then Joe recorded his Special Mailbox Greeting to take advantage of his Distinctive Ring
feature. This greeting is in Italian and tells the customers to press fi for lunch specials, fl
for business hours, ‡ to leave a message and ° to speak to Joe.
52
Joe then set up his mailboxes as shown in this table.
Mailbox #

you as soon as possible.”
4
Ring through
The caller will hear a tone and the telephone will ring to let
Joe know that someone would rather speak to him than leave
a message. If Joe does not answer this call, the following
message is played: “I’m sorry, but I cannot answer the phone
right now. Please leave a message after the tone and I will
get back to you as soon as possible.”

Troubleshooting
The display is in the alternate language.
You can change to the other language by pressing the Set Options key, then pressing ‚⁄
and pressing •.
The cursor does not move when I am saving in the Directory.
The number or name is too long. Numbers can be no longer than 24 digits and names can
be no longer than 16 characters.
Callers are not identified on the display.
Let the telephone ring at least twice before answering. If that does not work, you may not
have Calling Line Identification† service. To subscribe, contact your local telephone
company.
The Callers List is empty.
Until you subscribe to Calling Line Identification† service, your telephone does not record
incoming calls.
The Handsfree / speakerphone is not working.
If the speakerphone is not working, the option for the headset may be enabled. To fix this
problem, go to option 22 and turn it off.
I cannot hear a caller or be heard.
Make sure the handset cord is inserted securely into the jack and make sure the receiver
volume is high enough.
The caller is hearing the greeting twice before being able to leave a
message.
The auto attendant, option 19, has been enabled, which makes the greeting play two times.
Disable this option to correct the problem.
The power is out and the display is blank.
9516CW still operates as a regular telephone during a power failure. You can dial using the
dial pad and you can receive calls, but the answering machine, other keys or the display
will not operate until the power is restored.
The display works but you cannot hear a dial tone.
Your telephone lines may be wired differently from the telephone jack. To have a service
person correct the wiring, contact your local telephone company.
Also check to ensure that the Headset mode is disabled.
The telephone wobbles.
Check that the handset cord is placed in the channel between the stand and the telephone.
See the illustration on page 4.
I cannot program a memory key.
Some of the memory keys may be factory-programmed. These keys are locked and cannot
be erased or reprogrammed.

Call Waiting Identification information is not being displayed.
Make sure that the Call Waiting Identification information option is enabled, and that you
have subscribed to a Call Waiting ID† service.
I am unable to call back from the Callers List.
The Callers List will record the area code of any call, including local calls. You need to
take the area code out when dialing numbers from the Callers List.
How do I record a greeting?
For detailed instructions on recording a greeting, refer to Greetings on page 13.
How do I answer Call Waiting?
To answer a Call Waiting call, press ˚. You may have to subscribe to a Call Waiting†
service to use this feature.
I can view regular Caller ID information, so why can’t I see who is
calling on Call Waiting?
Ensure that the Call Waiting Identification option (option 26) is on, and that you have subscribed to a Call Waiting ID† service from your telephone company. Also note that you
will not recieve Call Waiting ID when an extension is in use.
How do I connect my fax to work with this phone?
To set up a fax machine to work with the M9516CW, you must first subscribe to a Distinct
Ring† service through your telephone company. Connect the fax to the M9516CW jack
marked 2 . Next, set the fax machine to pick up after at least three rings (consult the fax
machine manual for details). Finally, enable the fax switch option (option 20) on the
M9516CW. For more details, refer to Connecting an optional fax machine or
modem on page 4 and The Fax Switch on page 49.
How do I set up call announcement?
Call announcement must be turned on in the Option List for either Name & Number, or
Name Only. To get names to announce, voice tags must be recorded with an associated
directory entry. Refer to Call Announce (Voice Tag)
on page 22 for more information.
How do I have the M9516CW notify a pager of new messages?
First, set option 17 to on. Under option 18, enter the pager number as the Remote Notify
number. For more information, refer to Remote Notification
on page 54.
How do I listen to old messages?
You must find the associated caller ID entry in the Callers List. Old messages are saved
with the caller ID for that call.
Why does my greeting say, “We are unable to take your call – please
call back later”?
You have used up the thirty minutes available recording time. Delete old messages and
greetings to free up recording time for new messages.
