Setting a "Do Not Disturb" (DND) Key
The IP phones have a feature you can enable called "Do not Disturb
(DND). The DND function allows you to turn "do not disturb" ON and
OFF.
Note: You can configure DND using the Aastra Web UI only.
If DND is ON, callers calling into the phone hear a busy signal or a
message, depending on how your system administrator set up the
configuration server. The second line on the screen of the IP phone shows
when DND is set.
If the phone shares a line with other phones, only the phone that has DND
configured is affected.
You can set DND on the programmable keys using the Aastra Web UI

Setting a "Busy Lamp Field" (BLF) Key
The BLF feature on the IP phones allows a specific extension to be
monitored for state changes. BLF monitors the status (busy or idle) of
extensions on the IP phone.
Note: The BLF setting is applicable to the Asterisk server only.
Example
A Supervisor configures BLFs on his phone for monitoring the status of a
worker’s phone use (busy or idle). When the worker picks up his phone to
make a call, a busy indicator on the Supervisor’s phone shows that the
worker’s phone is in use and busy.
On the 53i, the busy and idle indicators are the LEDs next to each BLF
programmable key. The LED illuminates steady to indicate the monitored
line is off-hook or unregistered. The LED goes off when the line is idle.
You can set BLF on the programmable keys using the Aastra Web UI only.
BLF is not configurable from the IP phone UI.
Note: You can also use a BLF configured key to dial out. Contact your system administrator for more information.

Setting a "BLF List Key"
(For use with the BroadSoft Broadworks Rel 13 or higher platform only)
The BLF\List feature on the IP phones is specifically designed to support
the BroadSoft Broadworks Rel 13 Busy Lamp Field feature.
This feature allows the IP phone to subscribe to a list of monitored users
defined through the BroadWorks web portal.
Note: Your system administrator must have BLF List enabled on the BroadWorks
Server. Contact your system administrator for more information.
In addition to monitoring the idle and busy state, the BLF\List feature also
supports the ringing state. On the 53i phone, the LED lights next to each
BLF programmable key illuminate steady to indicate the monitored line is
off-hook or unregistered. The LED goes off when the is idle. When the
monitored extension is ringing, the LED flashes.
Note: The Broadworks BLF feature is not the same as the Broadworks Shared Call
Appearance (SCA) feature and does not permit call control over the monitored extension.
Example
A receptionist has a 53i running Broadsoft firmware that subscribes to a list
of extensions from the BroadWorks Application Server. On the 53i running
Broadsoft firmware, the programmable key LEDs illuminate either
flashing, solid, or turn off depending on the state of those extensions.
Note: You can also use a BLF/List configured key to dial out.

system administrator can create customized XML menu services and load
them to your IP phone. These services include things like weather and
traffic reports, contact information, company info, stock quotes, or custom
call scripts.
Note: You can configure XML using the Aastra Web UI only.
You can enable XML applications on your phone by setting a
programmable key type to "XML". Pressing the configured key on the
phone allows you to access the special XML services. If you set a
programmable key type as "XML", you must also enter the XML URI in the
"Value" field. This allows the phone to perform an "HTTP GET" on the
URI and load it to the phone.
Note: The XML services must be set up by your system administrator before you can

Setting Park/Pickup Keys
The 53i phone has a park and pickup call feature that allows you to park a
call and pickup a call when required.
The IP phones support the Park/Pickup feature on the Asterisk,
BroadWorks, Sylantro, and ININ PBX servers.
You can set the programmable keys on the 53i to use the park/pickup
feature by setting a programmable key as "Park" or "Pickup" and then:
• specify a value
• specify a line to use
Note: The values you enter for each softkey are dependent on the type of server you
are using (Asterisk, BroadWorks, Sylantro, or ININ PBX).
The park/pickup feature performs as follows:
• When a call comes in and you pickup the handset, you can press the
applicable "Park" programmable key to park the call.
• After the call is parked, you can press the "Pickup" programmable key,
followed by the applicable value to pickup the call.

Callers List
The Callers list is a stored log of your incoming calls. The 53i telephone
stores information on up to 200 incoming calls in the Callers list. Your
telephone logs the number and name (if available) of the caller, when they
last called, and the number of times they tried to reach you.
When the Callers list is full, the oldest call records are deleted to accommodate the information of new callers.
If the telephone number of an incoming or outgoing call matches a number
that you have programmed with a name in a programmable key or the
Directory, the Callers list will display the name and number.
The display shows you how many callers have been added to the list since
you last checked it.

Call Forwarding
The call forwarding feature on the IP phone allows incoming calls to be
forwarded to another destination. The phone sends the SIP message to the
SIP proxy, which then forwards the call to the assigned destination.
Call forwarding is disabled by default. You can enable call forwarding on a
global basis or on an individual line-basis, for each line. If you have
configured call forwarding on an individual line, then the settings for this
line are used; otherwise, the phone-wide call forward settings are used.
You can enable call forwarding on all phones (global settings) or on specific
lines (local settings) of a single phone. For local settings, you can set call
forwarding on up to 9 individual lines.
For global and local call forwarding, you can set the following:
• Call forward mode
• Destination number
• Number of rings before forwarding the call (from 1 to 9 rings)
The following are the call forward modes you can set:

Display DTMF Digits
A feature on the IP phones allows users to enable or disable DTMF (dualtone multi-frequency) digits to display to the IP phone when using the

DTMF is the signal sent from the phone to the network that you generate
when you press the phone’s touch keys. This is also known as “touchtone”
dialing. Each key you press on your phone generates two tones of specific
frequencies. One tone is generated from a high-frequency group of tones
and the other from a low frequency group.
If you enable the Display DTMF Digits parameter, the digits you are
dialing from the keypad or from a programmable key display to the IP
phone’s LCD display. This parameter is disabled by default (no digits
display when dialing).

Defining an Emergency Dial Plan
Public telephone networks in countries around the world have a single
emergency telephone number (emergency services number), that allows a
caller to contact local emergency services for assistance when required.
The emergency telephone number may differ from country to country. It is
typically a three-digit number so that it can be easily remembered and
dialed quickly. Some countries have a different emergency number for
each of the different emergency services.
You can specify the digits to dial on the IP phone for contacting emergency
services. Once you specify the emergency number(s) on the phone, you can
dial those numbers directly on the dial pad when required and the phone
automatically dials to those emergency services.
Note: Contact your local phone service provider for available emergency numbers in
your area.

phones.
