THE SPECIFICATIONS AND INFORMATION REGARDING THE PRODUCTS IN THIS MANUAL ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT
NOTICE. ALL STATEMENTS, INFORMATION, AND RECOMMENDATIONS IN THIS MANUAL ARE BELIEVED TO BE ACCURATE BUT
ARE PRESENTED WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. USERS MUST TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR
THEIR APPLICATION OF ANY PRODUCTS.
THE SOFTWARE LICENSE AND LIMITED WARRANTY FOR THE ACCOMPANYING PRODUCT ARE SET FORTH IN THE INFORMATION
PACKET THAT SHIPPED WITH THE PRODUCT AND ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY THIS REFERENCE. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO
LOCATE THE SOFTWARE LICENSE OR LIMITED WARRANTY, CONTACT YOUR CISCO REPRESENTATIVE FOR A COPY.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class A devices: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class
A digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when
the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a
residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be required to correct the interference at their own expense.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class B devices: The equipment described in this manual generates and may radiate
radio-frequency energy. If it is not installed in accordance with Cisco’s installation instructions, it may cause interference with radio and television
reception. This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the specifications in
part 15 of the FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a residential installation.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
Modifying the equipment without Cisco’s written authorization may result in the equipment no longer complying with FCC requirements for Class
A or Class B digital devices. In that event, your right to use the equipment may be limited by FCC regulations, and you may be required to correct
any interference to radio or television communications at your own expense.
You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco
equipment or one of its peripheral devices. If the equipment causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by
using one or more of the following measures:
• Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.
• Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio.
• Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio.
• Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain the equipment and the television
or radio are on circuits controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)
Modifications to this product not authorized by Cisco Systems, Inc. could void the FCC approval and negate your authority to operate the product.

Installing the Phone and Connecting to the Network
Step 3
Connect the power plug to the DC48V AC adapter port (optional).
The Cisco IP Phone 7910 Series telephone can be powered by several different
methods. If you are not sure how your phone is receiving power, ask your system
administrator.
After the telephone has power connected to it, the phone begins its startup
process. Once completed, the main LCD screen appears, displaying the phone’s
extension (or directory number) and the current date and time. If the phone does
not start up successfully, contact your system administrator for help.
Step 4
If your phone has an access port, you can connect your computer to the phone
using an Ethernet cable to enable your computer to access the network through the
Cisco IP Phone. Your company might choose this option if you do not have
multiple Ethernet ports in your work space.
However, this option is not available on all Cisco IP Phone 7910 Series models.
If your phone does not have an access port, you cannot connect a network device
to the phone.
Step 5
Push in the footstand adjustment knob and adjust the footstand to the desired
height that makes using the display and buttons most comfortable for you.
You can also mount the telephone on the wall using the mounting holes on the
footstand. Adjust the footstand so that it lies flat against the phone body. There is
an optional locking mount kit if you are mounting the phone in a public location;
contact your system administrator if you want to use a locking wall mount.
Step 6
If you mount the phone on a wall, or have the phone close to vertical on your desk,
adjust the handset rest so that the handset hooks onto it. Figure 2-2 shows how to
do this.

How to Use the Handset and Speaker
How to Use the Handset and Speaker
You can place calls with the handset or speaker, but you can only talk to your party
through the handset. Through the speaker, you can only listen to a call. These
sections describe the use of the handset and speaker and how to adjust the volume
of the call:
•
Using the Handset, page 3-2
•
Using the Speaker, page 3-2
•
Adjusting the Handset Volume, page 3-3
•
Adjusting the Speaker Volume, page 3-3
Using the Handset
To place and answer calls with the handset, simply lift the handset. To change
from handset to speaker, press Speaker and hang up the handset.
Using the Speaker
The speaker is designed to be used for “hands-free” dialing. You can use it to
place a call, and then pick up the handset if the other party answers the phone.
The speaker does not allow for two-way communication. However, you can have
the handset off-hook with the speaker on, enabling the calling party to hear you
over the handset while you listen through the speaker. You might want to do this
if you want to use the phone for conference calls.
To place calls using the speaker, press Speaker and dial the number. When the
party answers, pick up the handset. If the handset is off-hook with the Speaker
button enabled, you can speak into it, allowing the calling party to hear you. This
allows others to listen to both sides of the conversation.
If you are only listening to a call, you can leave the handset in the rest. The mute
button automatically lights, indicating that the calling party cannot hear you.
When finished with the call, press Speaker to hang up.
Note
You cannot use the speaker to transmit your voice.

Making Telephone Calls
Making Conference Calls
Conference calls allow you to have multiple callers participating in the same
telephone call.
The ability to make conference calls with your telephone is an optional feature.
Your phone supports some of these features by default. However, the specific
features available to you depend on how your system administrator configured
your phone to support them.
These sections describe how to make conference calls with the phone:
•
Placing a Conference Call, page 3-9
•
Establishing Meet-Me Conference Calls, page 3-10
Placing a Conference Call
To turn a call into a conference call:
Step 1
During a call, press the conf button.
This automatically opens a new line and places the other party on hold.
Step 2
Place a call to another party.
Step 3
When the call connects, press conf again to add this party to the conference call.
Tip
•
Once the conference call initiator disconnects, no new parties can be added.
•
Avoid putting a conference call on hold. When you put a call on hold, a
beeping tone automatically generates every few seconds, or music is played
(depending on how your administrator has configured the system).
•
To transfer a conference call to another telephone, press the Transfer button.
Dial the number to which you want to transfer the call and then press
Transfer again. All parties are transferred.

Making Telephone Calls
Establishing Meet-Me Conference Calls
A Meet-Me conference allows other callers to dial into the conference call. The
ability to make Meet-Me conference calls with your telephone is an optional
feature. Your phone does not support this feature by default. It requires a special
conference number, and it is only available if your system administrator
configured your phone to support it.
To establish a Meet-Me conference call:
Step 1
Press the Line button.
Step 2
Press the Meet-Me button.
Step 3
Dial the Meet-Me conference number.
Step 4
Follow the voice instructions to establish the Meet-Me conference.
You can also join Meet-Me conference calls established by other people. To join
a Meet-Me conference, dial the Meet-Me conference number provided by the
Meet-Me conference initiator. Do not press the Meet-Me button to simply join a
call. You are connected to the conference once the conference initiator has dialed
in and established the conference.
Using Call Pickup
Call pickup allows you to answer a call that comes in on a telephone extension
other than your own. When you hear an incoming call ringing on another phone,
you can redirect the call to your phone by using the call pickup feature.
There are two types of call pickup available on Cisco IP Phones:
•
Call Pickup—For picking up incoming calls within your own group. The
appropriate call pickup group number is dialed automatically when you
choose this feature. See the “Picking Up Calls in Your Group” section on
page 3-11.
•
Group Call Pickup—For picking up incoming calls within your own group or
in other groups. You must dial the appropriate call pickup group number
when using this feature. See the “Picking Up Calls Outside of Your Group”
section on page 3-11.

Making Telephone Calls
Call Pickup and Group Call Pickup are optional features configured by your
system administrator; your phone does not support these features by default. They
are only available if your system administrator has configured your phone to
support them.
Picking Up Calls in Your Group
Call Pickup allows you to pick up incoming calls within your own group. When
you activate Call Pickup, it automatically dials the call pickup group number
associated with the line you selected on your phone. If there is a call coming in
on another telephone number in that same group, the call immediately begins
ringing on your line. If there is more than one incoming call in the pickup group,
then you receive the first unanswered call. If there are no unanswered calls in the
group when you activate Call Pickup, your phone is placed back on hook.
Step 1
Press the Line button.
Step 2
Press the Call Pickup button.
Step 3
Answer the incoming call that is redirected to your phone.
Picking Up Calls Outside of Your Group
Group Call Pickup allows you to pick up incoming calls within your own group
or in other groups. You must dial the appropriate call pickup group number when
using this feature.
If there is a call coming in on another telephone number in the call pickup group
you dialed, that call immediately begins ringing on your line. If there is more than
one incoming call in the pickup group, then you receive the first unanswered call.
If there are no unanswered calls in the group, or if you dial an invalid call pickup
group number, you receive a fast busy tone.
Step 1
Press the Line button.
Step 2
Press the Group Call Pickup button.
Step 3
Dial the desired call pickup group number.

Using Call Forwarding
Step 4
Answer the incoming call that is redirected to your phone.
Step 5
To dial a different call pickup group number, hang up and begin again.
Using Call Forwarding
The Cisco IP Phone 7910 Series telephone includes call forwarding, which allows
you to redirect calls made to your telephone to another phone. This is useful if you
know you will be away from your desk for several days, for example, on a
business trip or a vacation.
Call Forwarding is an optional feature configured by your system administrator.
Although your phone supports this feature by default, your system administrator
might have removed this feature from your phone.
These sections describe how you can set up call forwarding:
•
Forwarding All Calls, page 3-12
•
Forwarding All Calls When Not at Your Phone, page 3-13
Forwarding All Calls
Use this procedure to forward all incoming calls to another number.
Step 1
Press the forward button.
You should hear two beeps.
Step 2
Enter the number to which you want to forward all your calls.
Be sure to enter the number exactly as you would if you were to call that number.
For example, enter an access code such as “9” or the area code, if necessary. The
LCD displays a message with the number to which your calls are being forwarded.
Step 3
To cancel forwarding of all calls, press the forward button. You should hear a
beep and the LCD should only show your extension, indicating that call
forwarding is not active.

Configuring Speed Dial Buttons
Depending on how your system administrator has configured your
Cisco IP Phone 7910 Series telephone, you can configure several buttons to speed
dial the numbers you use most.
Step 1
Using a web browser on your desktop computer, log in to the Cisco CallManager
User Options page.
See your system administrator for details.
Step 2
Select your phone from the Select a Device to Configure drop-down list box.
