Getting Started
The Idle State screen lists your name (SIP screen name), extension (or phone number), and the date and time. This
screen is shown whenever your phone is not in use. The L1 in the upper corner in the above example indicates the idle
screen for the first line appearance. You can use the left and right arrow keys to scroll through the idle screens for both
line appearances on the 6863i.
The second display line shows the following temporary messages if the event occurs:
• No Service
• DHCP Failed
• Restarting
• New IP Obtained
• Network Disconnected/Connected
Note:
Since Network Disconnected/Connected displays on two lines, the date and time does not show if this event displays.
• The second line can also display the following status messages, listed in order of display priority:
• Call Forward status
• DND (Do Not Disturb) On
• Number of missed calls
When more than one status message displays, the 2 is shown after the message to indicate that you can use the 2 and 5
navigation keys to scroll through the remaining messages.

Network Connected
Incomplete Configuration
If your phone displays an Incomplete Config message without any extension or user name at the end of the start up
sequence instead of an Idle state screen, this indicates the phone configuration that was downloaded from the configuration server is not complete or correct. Contact your System Administrator for assistance.
No Service
When the phone is not properly connected to the network, or the account has not been configured by the Network
Administrator, the No Service or Network Disconnected prompt appears on the display and the telephone status light
turns ON. Check that the cables are tightly connected to the phone and to the wall jack. The phone should automatically
detect when the connection is reconnected and display the Network Connected prompt temporarily.
If changes have been made to your phone settings, you may need to restart your phone. For more information on
restarting your phone, see “Restarting Your Phone” on page 35.
For more information about connecting your phone, refer to the Aastra 6863i Installation Guide or check with your System Administrator for assistance.

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 keypad when required and the phone automatically
dials to those emergency services.
You can set the emergency dial plan using the Aastra Web UI only.
Note:
Contact your local phone service provider for available emergency numbers in your area.
The following table describes the default emergency numbers on the IP phones.
Emergency Number
Description
911
A United States emergency number.
999
A United Kingdom emergency number.
112
An international emergency telephone number for GSM mobile phone networks.
In all European Union countries it is also the emergency telephone number for both mobile and fixed-line telephones.
110
A police and/or fire emergency number in Asia, Europe, Middle East, and South America.

CFWD key applies to the account in focus.
• Phone: The Phone mode allows you to set the same CFWD configuration for all accounts (All, Busy, and/or No Answer).
When you configure the initial account, the phone applies the configuration to all other accounts. (In the Aastra Web UI,
only the account you configured is enabled. All other accounts are grayed out but set to the same configuration.) Using
the Aastra Web UI, if you make changes to that initial account, the changes apply to all accounts on the phone.
• Custom: The Custom mode allows you to configure CFWD for a specific account or all accounts. You can configure a
specific mode (All, Busy, and/or No Answer) for each account independently or all accounts. On the 6863i, you can set all
accounts to All On or All Off.
Note:
If there is only one account configured on the phone, then the mode setting is ignored and the phone behaves as if the
mode was set to Phone.
You can enable different CFWD rules/modes independently (for example, you can set different phone numbers for Busy,
All, and No Answer modes and then turn them on/off individually).
Notes:

The illustration above shows 2 accounts configured on the phone. Accounts must be set up by your System Administrator.
5. For each account, enable the CFWD state by placing a check mark in one or more of the following State fields:
• All
• Busy
• No Answer
The All option forwards all incoming calls for this account to the specified phone number regardless of the state of
the phone. The phone can be in the Busy or No Answer states, or can be in the idle state. The phone still forwards
all calls to the specified number.
The Busy option call forwards incoming calls only if the account is in the busy state. The calls are forwarded to the
specified phone number.
The No Answer option call forwards incoming calls only if the account rings but is not answered in the defined
number of rings. The call gets forwarded to the specified number.
Note:
You can use the Busy and No Answer states together using different forwarding phone numbers. If these states are
enabled for an account (the All state is disabled), and the phone is in the busy state when a call comes in, the phone
can forward the call to the specified phone number (e.g. voicemail). If there is no answer on the phone after the
specified number of rings, the phone can forward the call to a different specified number, such as a cell phone
number.
6. For each account, in the Value field, enter the phone number for which you want the incoming calls to forward to
if the phone is in the specified state.
If using the Account mode or Custom mode, you can enter different phone numbers for each account.

can enter different phone number for each enabled state.
If you selected Custom mode, you can enable/disable each account or all accounts as applicable. You can enter
different phone numbers for each enabled state.
If you selected Phone mode, all accounts are set to the same CFWD configuration (All, Busy, and/or No Answer)
as Account 1 on the phone. (In the Aastra Web UI, only Account 1 is enabled. All other accounts are grayed out
but use the same configuration as Account 1).
Using the Aastra Web UI, if you make changes to Account 1, the changes apply to all accounts on the phone.
Using the IP phone UI, if you make changes to any other account other then Account 1, the changes also apply
to all accounts on the phone. When enabling a CFWD state, you must specify a phone number for the phone to
CFWD to. The number you specify applies to all accounts of the same mode.
• Number and name of accounts that display to this screen are dependant on the number and name of accounts
configured on the phone. The name for the account is specified by your System Administrator. Contact your

Additional Features
This section describes additional features you can use on the 6863i phone.
Display DTMF Digits
A feature on the IP phones allows users to enable or disable DTMF (dual-tone multi-frequency) digits to display to the IP
phone when using the keypad to dial, or when dialing from a programmed key.
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 touch-tone 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).
You can enable the Display DTMF Digits parameter using the Aastra Web UI.

Additional Features
Preferred Line and Preferred Line Timeout
The 6863i has two parameters called preferred line and preferred line timeout. If you enable the preferred line parameter
on your phone, after a call ends (incoming or outgoing), the display switches back to the preferred line. Next time you go
off-hook to make another call, you pickup on the preferred line. You can enable the Preferred Line parameter using the
Aastra Web UI at the location, Basic Settings > Preferences > General. You can also set a Preferred Line Timeout parameter
that specifies the number of seconds it takes for the phone to switch back to the preferred line.

41-001522-00 REV01 – 07.2014
Additional Features
Incoming Intercom Call Features
By default, the IP phone allows incoming intercom calls to be automatically answered without having to set up an Icom
key on your phone. The phone automatically plays a warning tone when it receives an incoming intercom call. It also
mutes the microphone. If the intercom call comes into the phone while an active call is already present, the phone puts
the active call on hold and answers the intercom call.
You can change the behavior of how the phone handles incoming intercom calls by enabling/disabling specific parameters using the Aastra Web UI.
• Auto Answer
• Microphone Mute
• Play Warning Tone
• Allow Barge In
Auto-Answer/Play Warning Tone
The auto-answer feature on the IP phone allows you to enable or disable automatic answering for an Intercom call. If
Auto-Answer is enabled, the phone automatically answers an incoming intercom call. If Play Warning Tone is also enabled, the phone plays a tone to alert you before answering the intercom call. If Auto-Answer is disabled, the phone treats
the incoming intercom call as a normal call. Auto-Answer and Play Warning Tone are enabled by default.
Note:
Your Administrator can set a time period delay before the phone automatically answers. Contact your System Administrator for more information.
Microphone Mute
You can mute or unmute the microphone on the IP phone for intercom calls made by the originating caller. If you want to
mute the intercom call, you enable this feature. If you want to unmute (or hear the intercom call), you disable this feature.
Microphone Mute is enabled by default.
Allow Barge In
You can configure whether or not the IP phone allows an incoming intercom call to interrupt an active call. The Allow
Barge In parameter controls this feature. When you enable the this parameter, which is the default value, an incoming
intercom call takes precedence over any active call, by placing the active call on hold and automatically answering the
intercom call. When you disable this parameter, and there is an active call, the phone treats an incoming intercom call like
a normal call and plays the call warning tone. Allow Barge In is enabled by default.
41-001522-00 REV01 – 07.2014
121
Additional Features
Configuring Incoming Intercom Settings
Aastra Web UI
1. Click on Basic Settings > Preferences > Incoming Intercom Settings.
2. The Auto-Answer field is enabled by default. The automatic answering feature is turned on for the IP phone for
answering Intercom calls. To disable this field, uncheck the box.
Note:
If the Auto-Answer field is not checked (disabled), the phone treats the incoming intercom call as a normal call.
3. The Microphone Mute field is enabled by default. The microphone is muted on the IP phone for Intercom calls made
by the originating caller. To disable this field, uncheck the box.
4. The Play Warning Tone field is enabled by default. If Auto-Answer is enabled, the phone plays a warning tone when
it receives in incoming intercom call. To disable this field, uncheck the box.
5. The Allow Barge In field is enabled by default. If Allow Barge In is enabled, the phone puts an active call on hold and
answers the incoming Intercom call. To disable this field, uncheck the box.
6. Click Save Settings.

41-001522-00 REV01 – 07.2014
Additional Features
Group RTP Paging
You can configure the phone to allow it to receive a Real Time Transport Protocol (RTP) stream from pre-configured multicast address(es) without involving SIP signalling. This is called Group Paging on the IP phones. You can specify up to 5 multicast addresses that the phone listens for on the network. This feature is configurable using the Aastra Web UI only.
The 6863i in the local network listens for RTP on the pre-configured multicast address. The phone displays the Paging
message to the phone’s LCD. It uses the G711 uLaw CODEC for multicast RTP.
The recipient can drop the incoming page if required. The recipient can also set DND to ignore any incoming pages.
For incoming RTP multicasts, the ringing display is dependant on the setting for the Allow Barge In parameter (see “Allow
Barge In” on page 121) If this parameter is disabled, and there is no other call on the phone, then the paging is automatically played via the default audio device.
If there is an existing call on the phone, the call initially displays in the ringing state. The user has the option to
accept/ignore the call. If the Allow Barge In parameter is enabled, the RTP multicast call barges in, and any existing calls
are put on hold.
If an RTP multicast session already exists on the phone, and the phone receives another incoming RTP multicast session,
the priority is given to the first multicast session and the second multicast session is ignored. The behavior for the incoming calls in this case is also based on the setting for the Allow Barge In parameter. The incoming call is handled as if there
were an existing call already on the phone.
Configuring Group RTP Paging
Aastra Web UI
1. Click on Basic Settings > Preferences > Group Paging RTP Settings.
2. In the Paging Listen Addresses text box, enter the multicast IP address(es) and port number on which the phone
listens for incoming multicast RTP packets.
Enter the IP address in dotted decimal format.
(for example, 239.0.1.15:10000,239.0.1.20:15000)
You can enter up to 5 listening multicast addresses.
If this field is blank, the paging listening capability is disabled on the phone.
Notes:
• Recipient of a paging call can set a global DND to ignore any incoming pages.
• For incoming paging, the phone uses the Intercom configuration settings. The incoming page is dependant on
the Allow Barge In parameter setting and the idling/on call state.
3. Click Save Settings.

Additional Features
Shared Call Appearance (SCA) Call Bridging
Shared Call Appearance (SCA) is when incoming calls are presented to multiple phones simultaneously. For example, it is
the ability to assign the boss' extension to a key on the secretary's phone. Calls can be transferred between two phones
with the same extension key by simply putting the call on hold at one phone and picking it up on the other. Status LEDs
light and flash in unison, allowing all people sharing the extension to see the status at a glance.
The phones include an enhanced SCA for the servers that support call bridging and allows two or more SCA users to be
connected in a call with a third party. Refer to the following example:
Phone A calls the SCA number and
all the phones in the SCA environment
ring.
Note: A user can place a call on hold while in an SCA bridged call, by pressing the SCA line key.
SCA phone 1 answers.
When 2 and 3 pickup,
1 can hangup.
SCA phone 2 joins by
pressing SCA line. When
phone 1 hangs up, 2 is still
connected. Phone 2 can
press the line key to
put SCA call on hold
leaving 3 still connected
to 1.
SCA phone 3 joins by
pressing SCA line. When
phone 1 hangs up, 3 is still
connected. Phone 3 can
press the line key to
put SCA call on hold
leaving 2 still connected
to 1.
Using the example above, when a call comes into Phone 1, Phone 2 and Phone 3 can pickup the same call by pressing
the SCA line key. Phone 2 and 3 display the call they are bridging into on the LCD of the phones. Existing SCA parties in a
bridge or one-to-one call hear an audible beep when another party has joined the call.
Note:
Your Administrator must enable/disable the beep on the server-side.
If a phone is configured for SCA bridging and it attempts to join a call, but the account on the server does not have this
functionality enabled, an error message displays to the LCD on the phone.
The SCA call bridging feature is disabled by default on all phones. Your Administrator can enable/disable this feature if
required. Contact your System Administrator for more information.
Keys States and LED Behavior
There are two call states on the phones that support SCA bridging:
• Bridge-active - A bridged call is in progress
• Bridge-held - The 3rd-party (i.e., non-SCA party) in the bridge is on hold.
The following tables provide the key states and LED behavior in an SCA bridge call for users involved in an SCA call and
users not involved in the SCA call.

Troubleshooting Solutions
Why is my display blank?
Ensure that power is being provided to your phone. See the Connecting to the Network and to Power section in the
Aastra 6863i Installation Guide for details.
Why can’t I get a dial tone?
Check for any loose connections and that the phone has been installed properly. For installation instructions, please
refer to the Installation and Setup section in the Aastra 6863i Installation Guide provided with your phone.
Why doesn’t my phone ring?
Check the ring volume on your phone. It may be turned down or turned off. To adjust the ringer volume setting, press
the volume button when the phone is on-hook and idle.
Why is the light not coming on with a new voicemail message?
Your phone system or service provider must provide the 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 in the Aastra 6863i Installation Guide for information.
How do I find the IP address of my phone?
Instructions on where to find the IP address of your phone can be found in this guide in the section, “Finding Your
Phone’s IP Address” on page 14.
Why does my phone display the No Service message?
The phone displays the No Service message if the SIP settings have not been set up correctly. Contact your System
Administrator for more information.
How do I change my user password?
You can change the user password from the IP phone UI or the Aastra Web UI. See “User Password” on page 32 for more
information.
Why does my phone display Bad Encrypted Config?
The IP phone displays Bad Encrypted Config because encrypted configuration files are enabled but the decryption
process has failed. Report this error to your System Administrator.
How do I restart the IP phone?
You can restart the phone from the IP phone UI or through the Aastra Web UI. See “Restarting Your Phone” on page 35
for more information.
How do I lock my phone?
You can lock your phone to prevent the phone from being used or configured. You can lock the phone using any of the
following:
• In the IP phone UI at the path Options > Phone Lock. See “Phone Lock” on page 32 for more information.
• In the Aastra Web UI at the path Operations > Phone Lock. See “Phone Lock” on page 32 for more information.
• At a configured Phone Lock key on the phone. For more information about configuring a Lock/Unlock key on your
