This guide is designed to help you quickly set up and use your
Cisco IP Phone 7905 series. For information on accessing more
complete phone documentation over the Web, see the “Related
Documentation” section on page 9.
2 Connecting Your
Cisco IP Phone 7905 Series
Your system administrator or a technician will probably
connect your new Cisco IP Phone to the corporate IP telephony
network. If that is not the case, connecting your phone is easy.
Follow the steps below. Refer to Figure 1 to locate ports on the
back of your phone.
Read the installation instructions before you
connect the system to its power source.
Before You Begin
Verify that your system administrator is ready for you to
connect your Cisco IP Phone to the network.
Be sure to read the “Safety Notices” section on page 9 before
connecting or using your phone.
Step 1
Connect your Cisco IP Phone to the corporate IP
telephony network. Use the Ethernet cable included
with your phone to connect the network port on the
back of your phone to the Ethernet port in your
If your Ethernet cable has a cover over the RJ-45
connector, the cover can cause the phone to be
unsteady, and the phone may rock from side to side.
Pull the cable cover back to expose the RJ-45 connector
to avoid this.
Step 2
Connect the handset to the handset port. Ensure that
the end of the cord with the longer uncoiled section is
connected to the body of the phone.
Step 3
Connect the DC power supply connector from the
adaptor to the 5Vdc jack on the back of the phone.
Step 4
Only use the 5Vdc power adapter that was
provided with the phone.
Use the power cord to connect the power supply to a
standard power outlet in your workspace.
After you connect the Cisco IP Phone to its power source, a
start-up process begins. After several minutes, the phone’s LCD
displays a neutral “ready” screen. The details on your screen
might vary, but a ready screen typically displays the date and
time, your extension number, and available soft keys. Startup is
complete and your phone is ready to use.
Soft keys point to feature options displayed along the
bottom of your LCD screen. Soft keys are
flexible—they change depending on the status of your
phone. For example, you can see one set of soft key
options when you pick up the handset, and another set
when the phone is not in use.

3 Introducing Your
Cisco IP Phone 7905 Series
A Cisco IP Phone 7905 series is a full-feature telephone that
provides voice communication over an IP (Internet Protocol)
network. This phone functions much like a traditional phone,

supports features that you have come to expect from a
telephone—such as speed dialing, redial, and conference calling.
