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.
Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G Phone Guide for Cisco Unified Communications Manager 7.0
5
• 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 headsets that are fully compliant with the
EMC Directive [89/336/EC].

For a complete list and description of accessories, see the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G
Accessory Guide.
Headset Information
To use a headset, see Using a Handset, Headset, and Speakerphone, page 62. Although Cisco Systems
performs some internal testing of third-party headsets for use with the Cisco Unified IP Phones, Cisco
does not certify or support products from headset or handset vendors. Because of the inherent
environmental and hardware inconsistencies in the locations where Cisco Unified IP Phones are
14
OL-16131-01
Connecting Your Phone
deployed, there is not a single “best” solution that is optimal for all environments. Cisco recommends
that customers test the headsets that work best in their environment before deploying a large number
of units in their network.
In some instances, the mechanics or electronics of various headsets can cause remote parties to hear
an echo of their own voice when they speak to Cisco Unified IP Phone users.
Cisco Systems recommends the use of good quality external devices, like headsets that are screened
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 cell phones and two-way radios, some audio
noise may still occur. See Using External Devices, page 5 for more information.
The primary reason that a particular headset would be inappropriate for the Cisco Unified IP Phone
is the potential for an audible hum. This hum can be heard by either the remote party or by both the
remote party and you, the Cisco Unified IP Phone user. Some potential humming or buzzing sounds
can be caused by a range of outside sources, for example, electric lights, being near electric motors,
large PC monitors.
Audio Quality Subjective to the User
Beyond the physical, mechanical and technical performance, the audio portion of a headset must
sound good to you (the user) and to the party on the far end. Sound is subjective and Cisco cannot
guarantee the performance of any headsets, but some of the headsets on the sites listed below have
been reported to perform well on Cisco Unified IP Phones.
Nevertheless, it is ultimately the customer's responsibility to test this equipment in their own
environment to determine suitable performance.
For information about headsets for your phone, see the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G
Accessory Guide and these web sites:

When you are out of range of the wireless network, you will not be able to use the phone for features
requiring a wireless network connection, such as making and receiving calls.
If your system administrator enabled the out-of-range alert, depending on the configuration, you
might hear a beep only once, or every 10, 30, or 60 seconds until you are back within range of the
wireless network.
To reconnect to the wireless network after you hear the alert, move to another location until you see
on the phone screen again.

Understanding Feature Availability
The operation of your Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G and the features available to you may
vary, depending on the call processing agent used by your company and also on how your company’s
phone support team has configured your phone system. Therefore, some of the features included in
this guide might not be available to you or might work differently on your phone system. Contact your
support desk or system administrator for information about feature operation or availability.
Cleaning the Phone
Gently wipe the phone screen and phone with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use any liquids or powders on
the phone. Using anything other than a soft, dry cloth can contaminate phone components and cause
failures.

to ringing on your phone after a certain length of time. These “reverting” calls remain on hold until
you resume them.
Your phone indicates the presence of a reverting call by:
• Alerting you at intervals with a single ring (or flash or beep, depending on your phone line setting).
• Briefly displaying a “Hold Reversion” message in the status bar at the bottom of the phone screen.

Forwarding Calls to Another Number
When enabled by your system administrator, you can use these call forwarding features to redirect
incoming calls from your phone to another number:
• 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.
You can access Call Forward All on your phone or from your User Options web pages; conditional
call forwarding features are accessible only from your User Options web pages.
If you want to...
Then...
Set up Call Forward All on
your primary line
Choose Options > CFwdAll, and enter a target phone number.
Cancel Call Forward All on Choose Options > CFwdAll.

phone
1. Log in to your User Options web pages. (See Accessing Your
User Options Web Pages, page 84.)
• The
icon next to the primary line.
• The call forward target number in the status line.
2. Access your call forwarding options. (See Controlling Line Settings
on the Web, page 91.)
Note
When call forwarding is enabled for any line other than the
primary line, your phone does not provide you with confirmation
that calls are being forwarded. Instead, you must confirm your
settings in the User Options web pages.
Tips
• 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.
• You can forward your calls to a traditional analog phone or to another IP phone, although your
system administrator might restrict the call forwarding feature to numbers within your company.
• 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.
40
OL-16131-01
Basic Call Handling
• Your system administrator can enable a call forward override feature that allows the person
receiving your forwarded calls to reach you. With override enabled, a call placed from the target
phone to your phone is not forwarded, but rings through.
• Your phone may reject your attempt to set up Call Forward All directly on the phone if the target
number that you enter would create a call forwarding loop or would exceed the maximum number
of links permitted in a call forwarding chain.
Using Do Not Disturb
You can use the Do Not Disturb (DND) feature to turn off only the ringer on your phone or to turn
off all audible and visual notifications of incoming calls. Your system administrator enables DND for
your phone.
When DND and Call Forward are both enabled on your phone, calls are forwarded and the caller does
not hear a busy tone.
DND interaction with other types of calls includes:
• DND does not affect intercom calls or non-intercom priority calls.
• If both DND and auto-answer are enabled, only intercom calls will be auto-answered.
If you want to...
Then...
Turn on DND
Do one of the following:
• Choose Options > DND.
• Press
on (

User Options Web Pages, page 82.
2. From the drop-down menu, choose User Options > Device.
3. Set the following options:
• Do Not Disturb—Set to enable/disable DND.
• DND Option—Choose either Call Reject (to turn
off all audible and visual notifications) or Ringer
Off (to turn off only the ringer).
• DND Incoming Call Alert (applies to either DND
option set)—Set the alert to beep only, flash only,
disable the alert, or choose “None” (to use the
“Alert” setting configured by your system
administrator).
Making Conference Calls
Your Cisco Unified IP Phone allows you to talk simultaneously with multiple parties in a conference
call.
Using Conference Features
You can create a conference in various ways, depending on your needs and the features that are
available on your phone:
• Conference—Allows you to create a standard (ad hoc) conference by calling each participant. Use
the Confrn softkey. Conference is available on most phones.
• Join—Allows you to create a standard (ad hoc) conference by combining existing calls. Use the
Join softkey.
• cBarge—Allows you to create a standard (ad hoc) conference by adding yourself to a call on a
shared line. Use the cBarge softkey. cBarge is available only on phones that use shared lines.

Basic Call Handling
Placing or Receiving Intercom Calls
You can place an intercom call to a target phone that auto-answers the call in speakerphone mode with
mute activated. The one-way intercom call allows you to deliver a short message to the recipient. If
the recipient’s handset or headset is in use, the audio is sent to the device in use. Any current call
activity that your recipient is engaged in continues simultaneously.
The target destination receives an intercom-alert tone and can then choose to:
• Listen to the caller by selecting the intercom line with microphone muted (you can hear the caller,
but the caller cannot hear you).
• End the intercom call by pressing the EndCall softkey. Do this if you do not want to hear the
message.
• Talk to the caller by selecting the intercom line, and use either the handset, headset, or speaker.
The intercom call becomes a two-way connection so that you can talk with the caller.
When using the intercom feature, be aware of the following:
• From an intercom line, you can only dial other intercom lines.
• You can use only one intercom line at a time.
• When your active call is being monitored or recorded, you cannot receive or place intercom calls.
• You cannot place an intercom call on hold.

You can park a call when you want to store the call so that you or someone else can retrieve it from
another phone in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager system (for example, a phone at a
co-worker’s desk or in a conference room). You can park a call by using these methods:
• Call Park—Use the Park softkey to store the call. Your phone displays the call park number where
the system stored your call. You must record this number and then use the same number to retrieve
the call.
• Directed Call Park—Use the Transfer softkey to direct the call to an available directed call park
number that you dial or speed dial. To retrieve the call from a directed call park number, dial the
park retrieval prefix, then dial or speed dial the same directed call park number. You can use a
speed-dial as the directed call park number and to monitor whether a directed call park number
is occupied or available.

Logging Out of Hunt Groups
If your organization receives a large number of incoming calls, you might be a member of a hunt group.
A hunt group includes a series of directory numbers that share the incoming call load. When the first
directory number in the hunt group is busy, the system hunts for the next available directory number
in the group and directs the call to that phone. When you are away from your phone, you can prevent
hunt group calls from ringing your phone by logging out of hunt groups.
If you want to...

Sharing Call Information and Barging
Phones that share a line each display information about calls that are placed and received on the shared
line. This information might include caller ID and call duration. (See the Privacy section for
exceptions.)
When call information is visible in this way, you and coworkers who share a line can add yourselves
to calls using either Barge or cBarge. See Using Barge to Add Yourself to a Shared-Line Call, page 54.
Barge—Allows you to join a shared-line call with an IP phone that has the built-in bridge enabled.
cBarge—Allows you to join a shared-line call with any IP phone and convert the call to a conference.
Privacy
The wireless IP Phone has Privacy enabled by default. Coworkers, who share your line, cannot see
information about your calls. If you want coworkers who share your line to see information, you must
have the Privacy feature configured on your phone. See Preventing Others from Viewing or Joining a
Shared-Line Call, page 56.
Note
The phone can support a maximum of 24 calls on a shared line.
Using Barge to Add Yourself to a Shared-Line Call
You can use barge featues (cBarge or Barge) to add yourself to calls on your shared line. (Calls must

Understanding Barge Features
cBarge and Barge
Depending on how your phone is configured, you can add yourself to a non-private call on a shared
line using either Barge or cBarge.
• cBarge converts the call into a standard conference, allowing you to add new participants. (See
Making Conference Calls, page 42 for more information about standard conferences.)
• Barge allows you to add yourself to the call but does not convert the call into a conference or allow

If you disconnect after using Barge, the remaining parties hear a disconnect
tone and the original call continues.
If you disconnect after using cBarge, the call remains a conference call
(provided at least three participants remain on the line).
Tips
• When you barge a call, other parties hear a beep tone announcing your presence. With cBarge,
other parties hear a brief audio interruption and the phone screen changes to display conference
details.
• If a phone that is using the shared line has Privacy enabled, call information and barge softkeys
will not appear on the other phones that share the line.

Preventing Others from Viewing or Joining a Shared-Line Call
If you share a phone line, you can use the Privacy feature to prevent others who share the line from
viewing or barging (adding themselves to) your calls.
If you want to...
Then...

Tips
• If the phone that shares your line has Privacy enabled, you can make and receive calls using the
shared line as usual.
• The Privacy feature applies to all shared lines on your phone. Consequently, if you have multiple
shared lines and Privacy is enabled, coworkers cannot view or barge calls on any of your shared
lines.
Using BLF to Determine a Line State
Busy Lamp Field (BLF) features allow you to view the state of a phone line that is associated with a
speed dial, call log, or directory listing on your phone. If you use BLF Pickup, you can answer a ringing
call for the line that you are monitoring. Your system administrator determines which BLF features are
configured for your phone.

Note
If you chose Options > Pickup or GPickup when the monitored line is

Tips
• Your phone might play an audible indicator to alert you when a call is ringing on the monitored
line (BLF Pickup only).
• BLF Pickup answers the oldest ringing call first (if the line that you are monitoring has more than
one ringing call).
Making and Receiving Secure Calls
Depending on how your system administrator has configured your phone system, your phone might
support making and receiving secure calls.
Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G Phone Guide for Cisco Unified Communications Manager 7.0
57
Your phone can support these types of calls:
• Authenticated call—The identities of all phones participating in the call have been verified.
• Encrypted call—The phone is receiving and transmitting encrypted audio (your conversation)
within the Cisco IP network. Encrypted calls are also authenticated.
• Protected call—The phone is receiving and transmitting encrypted audio (your conversation) with
another phone. A protected call provides a similar level of security as an encrypted call, but adds
additional security. If the call is protected at both ends, a security tone plays at the beginning of
the conversation. Some features, such as conference calling, shared lines, Extension Mobility, and
join across lines are not available when protected calling is configured. Protected calls are not
authenticated.
• Non-secure call—At least one of the participating phones or the connection does not support these
security features, or the phones cannot be verified.
If you want to...
Then...
Check the security level of a call
Look for a security icon in the top right corner of the call
activity area, next to the call duration timer:
Authenticated call or conference
Encrypted call or conference
Neither security icon appears if the call is non-secure.
Verify that the phone on the other
end of the connection is also secure
Look for the encrypted lock icon and listen for a security tone
at the beginning of a call.
When encrypted calling is configured on your phone, the lock
icon is displayed. However, the conversation is protected only
when the security tone plays at the beginning of a call,
indicating that the call is protected on both ends of the call. If
your call is connected to a non-protected phone, the secure
tone is not played.
Determine if secure calls can be
made in your company
Note
58
Contact your system administrator.
There are interactions, restrictions, and limitations that affect how security features work on
your phone. For more information, ask your system administrator.

Advanced Call Handling
Tracing Suspicious Calls
If you are receiving suspicious or malicious calls, your system administrator can add the Malicious Call
Identification (MCID) feature to your phone. This feature enables you to identify an active call as
suspicious, which initiates a series of automated tracking and notification messages.
If you want to...
Then...

Prioritizing Critical Calls
In some specialized environments, such as military or government offices, you might need to make and
receive urgent or critical calls. If you have the need for this specialized call handling, your system
administrator can add Multilevel Precedence and Preemption (MLPP) to your phone.
Keep these terms in mind:
• Precedence indicates the priority associated with a call.
• Preemption is the process of ending an existing, lower priority call while accepting a higher
priority call that is sent to your phone.
If you...
Then...
Want to choose a priority
(precedence) level for an outgoing
call
Contact your system administrator for a list of corresponding
precedence numbers for calls.
Want to make a priority
(precedence) call
Enter the MLPP access number (provided by your system
administrator) followed by the phone number.
Hear a special ring (faster than
You are receiving a priority (precedence) call. An MLPP icon on

Want to view priority level of a
call
Look for an MLPP icon on your phone screen:
Priority Call
Medium priority (immediate) call
High priority (flash) call
Highest priority (flash override) or Executive Override call
Higher priority calls are displayed at the top of your call list. If
you do not see an MLPP icon, the priority level of the call is
normal (routine).
Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G Phone Guide for Cisco Unified Communications Manager 7.0
59
If you...
Then...
Want to accept a higher-priority
call
Answer the call as usual. If necessary, end an active call first.
Hear a continuous tone
interrupting your call
You or the other party are receiving a call that must preempt the
current call. Disconnect immediately to allow the higher priority
call to ring through.
Tips
• When you make or receive an MLPP-enabled call, you will hear special ring tones and call-waiting
tones that differ from the standard tones.
• If you enter an invalid MLPP access number, a verbal announcement will alert you of the error.
• An MLPP-enabled call retains its priority and preemptive status when you:
– Put the call on hold
– Transfer the call
– Add the call to a three-way conference
– Answer the call using PickUp
• MLPP overrides the Do Not Disturb feature.
Using Cisco Extension Mobility
Cisco Extension Mobility (EM) allows you to temporarily configure a Cisco Unified IP Phone as your
own. Once you log in to EM, the phone adopts your user profile, including your phone lines, features,
established services, and web-based settings. Your system administrator must configure EM for you.
If you want to...
Then...
Log in to EM
1. Choose
> EM Service (name can vary).
2. Enter your user ID and PIN (provided by your system administrator).
3. If prompted, select a device profile.
Log out of EM
1. Choose
> EM Service (name can vary).
2. When prompted to log out, press Yes.
60
OL-16131-01
Advanced Call Handling
Tips
• EM automatically logs you out after a certain amount of time. You system administrator
establishes this time limit.
• Changes that you make to your EM profile (from the User Options web pages) take effect the next
time that you log in to EM on a phone.
• Settings that are controlled on the phone only are not maintained in your EM profile.
Using the Application Button
The Application Button
(on left side of phone) can be used to start applications such as Push to
Talk or other services on your phone.
Depending on how the Application Button is configured by your system administrator, you may be
able to use it from the main phone screen only, or you may use it from any menu or service, or even
when the phone is locked.
The Application Button can also be configured to start an application immediately after you press it,
or only after you hold it for several seconds.
For more information, see your system administrator.
Using the Push to Talk Service
The Push to Talk service provides immediate communication (similar to a two-way radio) with
members of your organization. Your system administrator must set up the Push to Talk service by using
an XML application, and then you must subscribe to this service.
If you want to...
Then...
Access Push To
Talk service

Troubleshooting Your Phone
Troubleshooting Your Phone
This section provides troubleshooting information for your wireless IP phone.
General Troubleshooting
This section provides information to help you troubleshoot general problems with your phone. For
more information, see your system administrator.
Symptom
You cannot complete a
call
Explanation
One or more of the following factors might apply:
• Your phone is out of the wireless network access point service area.
Note
When roaming with your phone, a green blinking light indicates that
the phone is still within the wireless service coverage area.
• You must log in to the Extension Mobility service.
• You must enter a client matter code or forced authorization code after
you dial a number.
• Your phone has time-of-day restrictions that prevent you from using
some features during certain hours of the day.
The main phone screen
is not active
One of these messages appears on the status line:
• Network busy—Not enough available bandwidth exists in wireless
network to complete this call. Try again later.
• Leaving service area—Phone is out of range of its associated access
point and wireless network.
• Locating network services—Phone is searching for a wireless network
access point.
• Authentication failed—Authentication server did not accept the
security credentials.
• Configuring IP—Phone is waiting for DHCP to assign an IP address.
The Settings menu is
unresponsive
Your system administrator might have disabled Settings on your phone.
Join fails
Join requires multiple selected calls. Be sure that you have selected at least
one call in addition to the active call, which is selected automatically. Join
also requires the selected calls to be on the same line. If necessary, transfer
calls to one line before joining them.

Symptom
Explanation
The softkey that you
want to use does not
appear
One or more of the following factors might apply:
• You must press Options and scroll to reveal additional softkeys.
• You must change the line state (for example, place a call or have a
connected call).
• Your phone is not configured to support the feature associated with
that softkey.
Barge fails and results
in a fast busy tone
One or more of the following factors might apply:
• You cannot barge an encrypted call if the phone you are using is not
configured for encryption. When your barge attempt fails for this
reason, your phone plays a fast busy tone.
• You cannot barge a call on another Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone.
You are disconnected
from a call that you
joined using Barge
You will be disconnected from a call that you have joined using Barge if the
call is put on hold, transferred, or turned into a conference call.
CallBack fails
The other party might have call forwarding enabled.
The phone shows an
error message when
you attempt to set up
Call Forward All
Your phone may reject your attempt to set up Call Forward All directly on
the phone if the target number that you enter would create a Call Forward
All loop or would exceed the maximum number of links permitted in a Call
Forward All chain (also known as a maximum hop count). Ask your system
administrator for details.

Your system administrator might ask you to access administration data on your phone for
troubleshooting purposes.
