The desk installation for the 55i IP phone consists of two legs that attach to
the back of the phone near the top corners. A total of four different
viewing angles allows users to personalize their phone viewing preference.
Attach each leg by inserting the tabs on the leg into the slots on the bottom
of the phone. There are three pair of leg slots on each corner of the phone;
each leg uses two pairs (1&2, or 2&3) giving two leg positions designating
different viewing angles. Furthermore, the legs can be reversed which
offer two additional viewing angles.
For a higher viewing angle, use the second and third slots from the top. For
a lower viewing angle, use the first and second slots from the top. Then
push the stand towards the phone until it snaps into place.

Install on the Wall
The 55i IP phone has two pre-drilled wall mounting holes on the back of
the phone. Using the provided wall mount drilling template, locate and
mark the position for the mounting screws on the wall. Depending on the
wall type, you may need to use wall anchors. Both the screws and wall
anchors are included with your phone.
Place the wall mount holes on the phone over the screw heads on the wall
and pull down to lock the phone in.
Wall Mount Holes
Note: You may wish to purchase a short Ethernet cable from a local supplier for a
wall installation. Also, if 802.3af compliant in-line power is not provided on
your network, and you are installing the 55i on a wall using a PoE in-line
power injector, you may also wish to use an equivalent flat Ethernet cable
rather than the one provided.

functions), located at the top of the front panel. These are keys that you can
set to perform specific functions and access enhanced services provided by
third parties (for example, XML applications). Other services include
accessing Directory and Call Logs.
By default, keys 1 through 4 are assigned as Services, Directory, Callers
List, and Intercom, respectively. Keys 5 and 6 have no assigned functions.
All 6 keys are programmable and can be assigned to perform specific
functions.

your PBX in order to work on your phone. See your system administrator for

Troubleshooting Solutions
Troubleshooting Solutions
Why is the light not coming on with a new Voice Mail Message?
Your phone system or service provider must provide “Visual” Message
Waiting service for this function to work. Check with your system
administrator for more information.
Why is my handset not working?
Check to ensure that the handset cord is fully connected to both the phone
and handset. See the section "Connecting a Handset or Headset" on
page 12 for information.
Why is my speakerphone not working?
If you press
and the speaker light flashes and you do not hear dial
tone, the Set Audio option has been used to set up the phone for headset
use; press
a second time. If the light goes out, the phone is set up to
be used only with a headset or handset. If the light stays on steady and you
hear dial tone, you can alternate between the speakerphone and the
headset by pressing
. See the section, "Set Audio" on page 20 for
instructions on how to change the Set Audio feature.
Why is my display blank?
Ensure that power is being provided to your phone. If your Network does
not provide Inline power over Ethernet, you can obtain an additional
accessory, the a PoE inline power injector, to provide power over
Ethernet locally to your phone. See the section "Connecting to the
Network and to Power" on page 10 for details.
Why can I only see 4 options when the installer or user guide says there
are more?
The telephone screen will only show 4 options at a time. To see more, press
the down arrow button

screen.
1. Press the
key.
2. Select Display->Backlight.
3. Press the Change key to turn the backlight on and off.
4. Press Save to save the change.
Why does the telephone wobble?
Make sure the cords are routed properly through the back of the phone, as
indicated in the section, "Connecting a Handset or Headset" on page 12.
Check that the leg stands have been properly snapped into place. Since
the legs can be oriented in two different ways and in two different positions
to offer four different phone viewing angles, check that both legs are
oriented in the same direction and in the same position on either side of
the phone.
