personal greeting lets callers know important information about you, for
instance, that you are on vacation, available at another number, or
unavailable for a specified amount of time.
At any time you can change these greetings or record more than one
personal greeting and choose which one is active. See “Changing Your
Name Announcement and Personal Greetings” in Chapter 4.

NBX MESSAGING
This chapter describes the NBX® Networked Telephony Solutions voice
messaging features. It covers these topics:
NBX Messaging
Components
■
NBX Messaging Components
■
Changing Your Password
■
Changing Your Name Announcement and Personal Greetings
■
Listening to NBX Messages
■
Replying to a Message

Other Ways to Manage Your Voice Mail Messages
■
Other Kinds of Mailboxes
A key component of the NBX Networked Telephony Solutions is the
NBX Messaging system, which includes voice mail, off-site notification,
and several administrative features. Voice mail allows callers to leave voice
messages in your voice mailbox when you are not able to answer your
telephone. You can listen to, save, and forward those messages from any
touch-tone telephone.
If your system uses a messaging application other than NBX Messaging,
use the documentation for your messaging application instead of the
instructions in this chapter.
Important
Considerations
■
The steps are the same for initially setting up the name
announcement, personal greetings, and passwords for personal,
30
CHAPTER 4: NBX MESSAGING
greeting-only, and phantom mailboxes. See “Setting Up Your
Password and Voice Mail for the First Time” in Chapter 1 for details.
(Your administrator creates group mailboxes and their passwords.)
Changing Your
Password
■
For changes to passwords and greetings, see “Changing Your
Password” and “Changing Your Name Announcement and Personal
Greetings” later in this chapter.
■
The default setting for the maximum length of each voice mail
message on the system is 5 minutes. Your administrator can configure
your organization’s NBX Messaging system to receive and store voice
mail messages that are up to 10 minutes long.
■
Use the Off-Site Notification feature if you want the NBX system to
notify you when callers leave voice mail messages in your voice
mailbox. See “Off-Site Notification” in Chapter 6.
■
With a touch-tone telephone, you are able to bypass system messages
using option buttons if you are configuring passwords and greetings.
However, you cannot bypass voice mail messages in this manner.
You use the same 4-digit to 10-digit password to log in to the NBX
NetSet™ utility and to access your NBX voice mail. You can change this
password with your telephone (using the NBX voice prompts or a feature
code) or through the NBX NetSet utility.
To set up your password for the first time, see Table 4 and “NBX NetSet
Utility” in Chapter 1. Table 4 also describes how to change your
password.
If you forget your password, the administrator can set it to be your
extension number. Then follow the instructions in Table 4 in Chapter 1 to
change it to a more secure password. Also see “Security Tips” next.
If your NBX system uses a messaging system other than NBX Messaging:
■
Use the feature code method described in Table 4 in Chapter 1 to set
and change the NBX NetSet utility password.
■
3Com recommends that you use the same password for your voice
messaging system and for the NBX NetSet utility.

■
Change your password often.
■
Do not use passwords that can easily identify you, such as your phone
extension or birth date.
■
Avoid simple passwords such as 1234 or 0000.
■
Use numbers only; do not use letters, *, or # as part of your password.
■
Longer passwords are more secure. You can use up to 10-digits for
your password.
■
Never tell your password to anyone.
You set name announcement and personal greeting when you first set
your voice mail. See “Setting Up Your Password and Voice Mail
for the First Time” in Chapter 1. Change your personal greeting often, to
ensure that callers hear up-to-date information.
You can record up to five personal greetings and choose which to use
from the telephone. You can also review, delete, or choose which to
make active with the NBX NetSet utility.
If appropriate, you may also want to change the greeting for an extension
that is a “greeting-only mailbox,” so that callers do not attempt to leave
messages. See “Greeting-Only Mailbox” later in this chapter.
To change your name announcement or personal greetings:
1 Log in to your mailbox at your telephone or remotely.
2 Press 9 for Mailbox Options and then press 1.
3 To review or change your name announcement, press 1 and follow the
prompts.
4 To review or change your personal greetings, press 2 and follow the
prompts.
Using the NBX NetSet utility, you can review or delete a personal greeting
or choose which of your recorded greetings to make active.
To hear or delete your personal greetings or choose your active personal
greeting from the NBX NetSet utility:
1 Log in to the NBX NetSet utility with your extension and password.
2 Go to NBX Voice Mail Settings > Personal Greeting.

greeting.
c Click Delete to delete the greeting. You cannot delete greeting
number 1; you can re-record it through the phone.
d Click Apply to apply your changes or Reset to deselect the active
greeting.
If you forget your password, the administrator can set it to be your
extension number. Then follow the instructions in Table 4 in Chapter 1 to
change it to a more secure password. Also see “Security Tips” earlier in
this chapter.
Listening to NBX
Messages
You can listen to your NBX voice mail messages from your 3Com®
telephone, from any touch-tone telephone, or by logging in to the NBX
NetSet utility. After you listen to messages, you can save or delete them
to clear them from the New Messages queue. For how to set up your
NBX NetSet utility password the first time, see Table 4 and “NBX NetSet
Utility” in Chapter 1.
If your system uses a messaging application other than NBX Messaging,
use the documentation for your messaging application instead of these
instructions.
Message Indicators
Here is how you can tell if you have messages in your mailbox:
■
On a 3Com 3101 or 3101SP Basic Telephone — The indicator bar
above the display panel is lit, and the display panel shows the number

■
Private Messages — The recipient cannot forward the message to
others.
Other Ways to Manage Your Voice Mail Messages
■
41
Urgent Messages — Places the message at the beginning of the

or “Creating and Sending a Message” earlier in this chapter.
2 In step 4 of those instructions, press 9.
3 To mark the message Urgent, press 1. To mark the message Private,
press 2.
4 To send the marked message, press 1, or listen to the prompts for other
choices.
Other Ways to
Manage Your Voice
Mail Messages
You can listen to and, in some configurations, delete your voice messages
from within an e-mail application or a messaging application using your
Internet browser. For details, see “Listening to Your Messages in Your
E-mail” in Chapter 7.
Other Kinds of
Mailboxes
The NBX system allows you (for the greeting-only mailbox) or the
administrator (for phantom or group mailboxes) to set up mailboxes for
special situations, as described in this section.
Greeting-Only
Mailbox
When you designate your mailbox as a greeting-only mailbox, callers hear
your personal greeting but they cannot leave a voice mail message.
To change your voice mailbox to a greeting-only mailbox, log in to the
NBX NetSet utility and go to NBX Voice Mail Settings > Personal
Greeting. Select the Greeting Only Mailbox.
Examples:
■
When you take an extended leave of absence, you can create a
personal greeting with your scheduled date of return and whom to
call during your absence. Callers can be transferred but are unable to
leave voice messages for you. When you return, clear the Greeting
Only Mailbox check box so that callers can leave messages again.
■
If you are a teacher, you can create a new personal greeting on the
school’s NBX system every day to explain homework assignments.
Students call in to the greeting-only mailbox to get the homework
information but cannot leave a message for you on this mailbox.
42
CHAPTER 4: NBX MESSAGING
■
If you are the administrator, you can create a greeting-only mailbox
and use the personal greeting to post information for employees, such
as a notice that the offices are closed because of bad weather.
When you create the personal greeting, remember to tell callers that they
cannot leave messages in this voice mailbox. For instructions on changing
the personal greeting, see “Changing Your Name Announcement and
Personal Greetings” earlier in this chapter.
In addition to preventing a caller from leaving a message, a greeting-only
mailbox does not allow anyone to forward or create and send a message
to it or reply to a message that was sent from its extension
Avoid adding a greeting-only mailbox to a personal voice mail group list.
Phantom Mailbox
A phantom mailbox does not have an actual telephone associated with it.
The administrator sets up a phantom mailbox.
Examples:
■
If you are a sales representative who travels constantly for your
organization and never comes into the office, you still need a way to
receive telephone messages. Using your phantom mailbox, you can
retrieve, forward, and save messages in the same way that any other
employee can but without a physical telephone connected to your
NBX system.
■
If you are an employee who lives a long distance from your office and
works from home, customers and others can leave messages in the
your phantom mailbox and you can call in to the NBX system to
retrieve them, or you can listen to them from the NBX NetSet utility.
You retrieve messages from a phantom mailbox in the same way that you
retrieve messages from a personal mailbox. See “Listening to NBX
Messages” earlier in this chapter.
Group Mailbox
A group mailbox is a voice mailbox from which a group of users can
retrieve messages. Your administrator creates group mailboxes and can
explain how to retrieve messages that are left in the group mailbox.
Example:
■
During nonbusiness hours, the system can send incoming telephone
calls for your sales department to a group mailbox. Your administrator
Other Kinds of Mailboxes
43
assigns to the appropriate sales people the ability to listen to, forward,
or otherwise handle all messages that are directed to the group
mailbox.

Forwarding
Incoming Calls
Use the Call Logs on the display panel to redial a recently missed,
answered, or dialed call.
You can choose when and where to forward unanswered incoming calls.
Unanswered calls that come in directly to your extension go to a call
coverage point. You can set different call coverage points for different
conditions: default, no answer, busy, and all calls.
Unanswered calls that come to your telephone through ACD groups,
hunt groups, and calling groups follow the call coverage path that your
administrator sets up for the group. See “Automatic Call Distribution
Groups, Hunt Groups, and Calling Groups” in Chapter 7.
When you specify call forwarding, you specify the call coverage point and
the condition under which to forward calls.
Call Coverage Points
Condition to Forward
Calls
Your call coverage points are the destinations you forward your calls to
when you do not answer. They can be telephone extensions or external
telephone numbers, your voice mail box, or an automated attendant.
You can choose when to forward calls:
■
Default — Forwards unanswered incoming calls to your default call
coverage point after a specified number of rings if you have not
specified another condition.
Forwarding Incoming Calls
51
■
Call Forward No Answer — Forwards unanswered incoming calls to
a call coverage point when your phone rings for a specified number of
rings.
■
Call Forward Busy — Forwards incoming calls to a call coverage
point when your phone is busy.
If you have multiple lines, all lines must be in use in order for Call
Forward Busy to engage.
■
Call Forward All — Forwards all incoming calls without ringing to a
call coverage point regardless of the state of your phone.
Use this feature when, for example, you plan to be away from your
phone for an extended period of time.
Setting Call Forward
from the Telephone
You can set call forwarding from your telephone. You choose the
condition for call forwarding (default, no answer, busy, or all) and the
destination. When you specify an external telephone number as the
destination, start by entering a 9 or 8 or whatever is required to access an
outside line. Example: 912815551212 dials (281) 555-1212. You can
enter a * if a pause is required between an access code and a destination
number.
The number that you choose may be limited by your call permissions. To
view your permissions, log in to NBX NetSet utility and go to My Calling
Privileges > Call Permissions.
From the telephone, you can set call forwarding using feature codes. Use
the NBX NetSet utility to see your call forwarding settings. You or your
administrator can also set programmable access buttons for call
forwarding. (See “User Button Mapping” in Chapter 6.)
Forward to Mail
From the telephone, you can set your 3Com Telephone so that all
incoming calls go directly to your default call coverage point, usually your
voice mailbox. You can change the destination to the Auto Attendant or
receptionist or a different telephone number. This feature is referred to as
FWD MAIL, Forward to Mail, Forward All Calls to Voice Mail, and Forward
All Calls to VM. When Forward to Mail is in effect, your telephone rings
once before forwarding the call to your default call coverage point.

CHAPTER 5: STANDARD FEATURES
Direct Mail Transfer
You can transfer a call directly into another user’s voice mailbox. The call
does not ring on that user’s telephone.
Calls transferred to a user’s mailbox by means of Direct Mail Transfer are
always directed into that user’s voice mailbox, even if the recipient has
specified a different call coverage point.
On a 3Com Basic Telephone:
1 While you are on a call, press Feature + 441.
2 Dial the voice mail extension of the person to whose voice mailbox you
want to transfer the call.
3 Hang up the handset.
Establishing a
Conference Call
Depending on the type of telephone you have, you can establish a
Conference Call with up to four parties, including yourself. You must be
using a telephone on the NBX system to establish the call. The other one
to three parties can be any combination of internal and external parties.
If the NBX has SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) enabled, you are limited to
three-party Conference calls, including yourself, unless your NBX system
is configured with a 3Com SIP Conference Server. For more information
on making Conference calls with SIP enabled, see your NBX administrator.
On 3Com Basic Telephones, you must use the Feature Code.
From a 3Com Basic Telephone, follow these steps:
1 Dial a call, or receive a call from someone else. Two parties are now on
the call.
2 While on the call, press Feature + 430. The system selects a new line and
places the first party on hold.
3 Dial a call to an internal or external third party.
■
For an announced conference, wait for the third party to answer the
call, and then press Feature + 430 again.
■
Until you press Feature + 430 the second time, the second party
remains on hold, and you may converse with the third party
privately.
Establishing a Conference Call
■
61
For a blind conference, press Feature + 430 immediately after you
dial the number. You return to the conference, and you and the
second party hear the called party’s telephone ringing.
If the third party answers, three parties are now in the conference call.
If the third party is internal and does not answer, the attempt to
conference that party is cancelled. You cannot establish a conference call
with an NBX user’s voice mailbox.

Using Camp On
All of the conferenced parties are transferred except yourself.
Your ability to drop the last person that you added to the
conference is transferred to the person who accepts the transfer.
Camp On allows you to queue a transferred call on to an NBX destination
extension that is already in use. When the destination extension becomes
available, the system automatically rings that extension.
While a call is camped on, the caller hears either Music On Transfer (MOT)
or silence if no music is provided. The destination extension becomes
available when the user ends the current call or puts the current call on
Hold.
You initiate a Camp On call through Feature code 468 or a programmed
system access button depending on the type of NBX telephone you have
and how it is configured.
Examples 1 and 2 show two different ways for a user to initiate Camp
On.
Example 1: Camp On With Call Transfer
The user at extension 1001 calls the user at extension 1002, who then
transfers the call to extension 1003. But the user at extension 1003 is on
another call. (The display panel of the extension 1002 telephone shows
“On Another Call.”) So the user at extension 1002 initiates the Camp On
call, and then hangs up. The user at extension 1001 remains on hold
while the user at extension 1003 hears a tone that indicates a caller is
camped on. As soon as extension 1003 is available, extension 1003 rings
with a call from extension 1001.
In this example, the user at extension 1002 initiates Camp On after
initiating a screened call transfer.
Using Camp On
63
In contrast, Example 2 shows how a user can initiate Camp On to directly
queue a transferred call on to a destination extension that is in use or
busy without using the call transfer feature.
Example 2: Direct Camp On
The user at extension 1001 calls the user at extension 1004, who
determines that extension 1005 is busy and cannot take the call (meaning
all of its system access lines are in use). So instead of transferring and
dropping the call to the call coverage for extension 1005, extension 1004
initiates the Camp On call and then hangs up. The user at extension 1001
remains on hold while the user at extension 1005 hears a tone that
indicates a caller is camped on. As soon as extension 1005 is available,
extension 1005 rings with a call from extension 1001.
In this example, the user at extension 1004 simply initiates Camp On after
receiving the call from extension 1001.
Initiating Camp On
With Call Transfer
If you have a 3Com Basic, Business, or Manager Telephone, or Attendant
Console, you can initiate Camp On with Call Transfer to queue a call to
an in use destination extension.
1 While on a call, initiate a (screened) call transfer as described in
“Announced (Screened) Transfer” earlier in this chapter.
2 When you see “On Another Call” on your display panel for the
destination extension, press Feature + 468 (or press the Camp On
Access button if one is programmed on your telephone).
■
If the Camp On attempt is successful, the call originator remains on
hold while the destination extension receives a Call Waiting tone.
When the party on the destination extension becomes available, the
camped on call rings on the destination extension. Or, if the
destination party remains unavailable and the Camp On Return
Interval expires, the call is returned to you. See “More About Camp
On” later in this chapter.
■
If the Camp On attempt is not permitted, the call originator remains
on hold while the message “Not Allowed” or “Camp On In Use”
appears on your display panel. See “More About Camp On” later in
this chapter.

A system-wide Camp On Return Interval determines how long a caller
can stay camped on to an extension. The default Camp On Return
Interval is 180 seconds (three minutes). The NBX administrator can
configure it to be anything from 30 seconds to 10 minutes. If the
Camp On Return Interval expires, the camped call is returned to the
originator of the Camp On. For example, extension 1001 calls
extension 1002, and the call is then camped onto extension 1003 and
extension 1002 hangs up. Extension 1003 stays busy. When the Camp
On Return Interval expires, extension 1002 starts ringing. If the user at
extension 1002 does not answer the call, the call goes to the call
coverage for extension 1002.
■
You can initiate a Camp On call only to an internal NBX extension.
However, the originating call can originate from either an external or
internal number.
■
An extension can only have one Camped On call in its queue. If
another Camp On attempt is made to this extension, the message
“Camp On In Use” is displayed at the telephone attempting to initiate
the Camp On.
Using Camp On
■
65
You cannot initiate a Camp On call to:
■
An ACD extension
■
A Hunt Group extension
■
A TAPI RoutePoint extension
■
A Call Park extension
■
A Phantom extension
■
You cannot initiate a Camp On call to a device connected to an Auto
Attendant or Voicemail.
■
You can use either System-wide Speed dials (SSDs) or Personal Speed
Dials (PSDs) that are mapped to a valid extension as an alternative to
manually dialing the Camp On destination extension.
■
If Call Forward All or Do Not Disturb is enabled on the Camp On
destination extension, the message “Not Allowed” is displayed at the
telephone attempting to initiate the Camp On.
■
The condition of the destination extension at the time you initiate
Camp On determines the following:
■
■
■
If the Destination Extension is In Use — One or more (but not
all) of its system appearance lines are presently being used. In this
condition, you can use either Camp On with Call Transfer or Direct
Camp On to queue a call on to the destination extension.
If the Destination Extension is Busy — All of its system
appearance lines are presently being used. In this condition, you
can use only Direct Camp On to queue a call on to the destination
extension.
If the Destination Extension is Available — Instead of queuing
the call, both Camp On with Call Transfer and Direct Camp On act
as a blind transfer (See “Blind Transfer” earlier in this chapter.)
■
If you have an NBX Entry telephone or an analog telephone you can
use only Direct Camp On to queue a call on to the destination
extension.
■
If you are using Camp On with Call Transfer and the destination
extension has its Call Coverage set to Disconnect, after the transfer
times out, you receive a busy tone. You can now initiate Camp On to
the destination extension.
For additional tips and considerations on using Camp On, see your NBX
system administrator.

CHAPTER 5: STANDARD FEATURES
Using Automatic
Callback
Automatic Callback allows you to request a call back ring from a
destination extension that is in use or unanswered. The NBX system
attempts to connect you when the called party at that extension becomes
available.
On an NBX telephone, the Automatic Callback feature is helpful when:
■
The person you are calling is on another call and you want the system
to generate a call back ring as soon as this person is available.
■
The person you are calling does not answer the call and you want the
system to generate a call back when this person is available.
You initiate an Automatic Callback through Feature code 469 or a
programmed system access button depending on the type of NBX
telephone you have and how it is configured.
Initiating Automatic
Callback
You can initiate Automatic Callback while making a direct call to an
extension that is in use or unanswered.
On a 3Com Basic or Business Telephone or Attendant Console:
1 While on a call to an extension that is in use or unanswered, press
Feature + 469 (or press the Automatic Callback Access button if one is
programmed on your telephone).
2 Disconnect from the call.
■
If the Automatic Callback attempt is successful, the message
“Callback Extension XXX” appears on your display panel.
When the party on the destination extension becomes available, you
receive a call back ring. When you answer this call back, the
destination extension rings and your call then can be connected.
■
If the Automatic Callback attempt is not permitted, the message “Not
Allowed” appears on your display panel. See “More About Automatic
Callback” in this chapter.
If the party on the Automatic Callback destination extension does not
return your call within the time set by the Automatic Callback Return
Interval, the system cancels the Automatic Callback request. For more
information, see the “More About Automatic Callback” section.
Using Automatic Callback
More About
Automatic Callback
67
These usage tips and limitations apply to Automatic Callback:
■
An Automatic Callback Return Interval, set by the NBX NetSet
administrator, determines the maximum amount of time you can wait
for a call back. The range for this timer is 1 minute to 24 hours with
the default being 12 hours. If the Callback is not received within this
time, the system cancels the Callback.
■
An extension can have up to five Automatic Callback requests
assigned to it. Return call backs are generated in the order that they
were received (FIFO).
■
Events that generate a call back from the destination extension
include:
■
■
Entering a feature code followed by an on-hook event
■
Invoking Directory followed by an on-hook event
■
Going off-hook then on-hook
■
Using Feature + 111 to terminate a session
You cannot initiate an Automatic Callback to:
■
An external number
■
An ACD extension
■
A Hunt Group extension
■
A TAPI RoutePoint extension
■
A Call Park extension
■
An extension receiving a transferred call
■
A Phantom extension
■
You cannot initiate Automatic Callback to a device connected to an
Auto Attendant or Voicemail.
■
If Call Forward All or Do Not Disturb is enabled on the Automatic
Callback destination extension, the message “Not Allowed” is
displayed at the telephone attempting to initiate the Automatic
Callback.
For additional tips and considerations on using Automatic Callback, see
your NBX system administrator.

ringer volume is different from ringer tone, see “Ringer Tones” in
Chapter 6.
■
Handset Volume — To raise or lower the volume of the dial tone or
the sound that you hear when you are using the handset, pick up the
handset and then press the up or down Volume Control button
repeatedly until the volume is at the level that you prefer. You can
change the handset volume during a conversation or by listening to
the dial tone.
■
Speaker Volume (3Com 3101SP Basic Telephone) — To raise or
lower the volume of the sound that you hear when you are using the
speaker phone for a conversation or just listening to the dial tone,
press the Speaker button and then press the up or down Volume
Control button repeatedly until the volume is at the level that you
prefer.
■
Headset Volume — To raise or lower the volume of the dial tone or
the sound that you hear on the headset, put on the headset and
activate it as specified for your headset. When you hear the dial tone
or during a conversation, press the up or down Volume Control
button repeatedly until the volume is at the level that you prefer. See
“Using a Headset” in Chapter 6.

use the documentation for your messaging application instead of these
instructions.
Guidelines About
Features on NBX
Telephones
■
If your telephone does not have a button programmed for Feature,
ask your administrator to program one.
■
Because your administrator determines whether some of the features
that are described in this chapter are available for your telephone or
for the entire system, some of these features may not be available to
you.
70
CHAPTER 6: PERSONALIZING YOUR TELEPHONE
Ringer Tones
■
The settings on your telephone, including your extension, personal
settings, and system settings, remain the same even when you move
your telephone from one Ethernet jack to another, as long as both
Ethernet connections are part of the same LAN.
■
Because your extension and personal settings are associated with your
telephone, you cannot switch your telephone with another user’s
telephone without first having your administrator reassociate your
profile with the other telephone.
To help you to distinguish the ring tone of your 3Com telephone from the
sound of other phones, use the NBX NetSet utility to select one of nine
ringing tones. You can also choose Silent Ring to disable audible ringing.
To change the ringer tone:
1 Verify that your computer has a sound device (a USB headset or a sound
card with either headphones or speakers).
2 Log in to the NBX NetSet utility and go to Telephone Programming >
Ringer Tones.
3 Click each of the nine Ringer Tone Settings to hear the choices.
4 Select the number of the tone that you want.
5 Click Apply.
When you choose Silent Ring, the status light or display panel icon flashes
when a call arrives, but the telephone never rings. A headset attached to
the headset connector of a 3102 or 3102B Business Telephone also plays
a tone audible only through the headset.
User Button
Mapping
You can map the buttons of your own 3Com Basic, Manager, or Business
Telephone if your NBX administrator enables this feature for your user
group. You can also modify the button mappings for a telephone to
override group button mappings unless your administrator has locked a
particular feature or features. (A lock icon in the NetSet display indicates
whether the button can be remapped.) Call forwarding can occur when
locking is enabled.
To check if button mapping is available for your telephone, log in to the
NBX NetSet utility and go to My Calling Privileges > Call Permissions.
Button mapping is available if this feature is enabled.

Notes
For more information, see
The following notes apply to user button mapping.
■
Button Type Functions — Not all button type functions are available
on all models of telephones.
■
Priority and Number Fields — The use of Priority and Number fields
for button mapping depend on the selected button type function.
These fields are applicable where noted in Table 8.
■
Ring Field — The Ring field used for button mapping allows you to
enable and disable ringing for a lone appearance button and to set
delayed ringing patterns. (See “Delayed Ringing” below.)
■
Busy Lamp/Speed Dial — A Busy Lamp/Speed Dial button is an
Access button where the Type field is set to Line/Extension and the
button is mapped so that it can function as a Speed Dial. When you
press the Busy Lamp/Speed Dial button, you dial the mapped
extension. When the other extension is in use, the lamp lights on your
telephone. For how to configure a Busy Lamp/Speed Dial button, see
“Line/Extension” in Table 8.
■
Button Labels — You can use the NBX LabelMaker utility available
through the NBX NetSet utility to create and print labels for the
buttons on your telephone.
■
Delayed Ringing — The administrator can define a “ringing
progression” for a line mapped to multiple telephones. For example a
call could ring immediately at telephone 1, begin ringing at telephone
2 after 4 rings, and then begin ringing at telephone 3 after 8 rings.
Any of the telephones can pick up the call at any time, even if it has
not yet started ringing at a particular telephone.
76
CHAPTER 6: PERSONALIZING YOUR TELEPHONE
Delayed Ringing works only when your administrator maps telephone
company lines directly to buttons on two or more telephones or
defines bridged station appearances. After that is done, you can alter
the delayed ringing pattern by changing the delay before ringing
occurs on the mapped line on your phone.
To edit a Delayed Ringing Pattern, go to Telephone Programming >
Button Mapping. The button mapped to the telephone line or
designated as a bridged extension will have the Type set to
Line/Extension
For the shared line appearance button, set the Ring box to the
behavior that you want. To have the telephone begin ringing after one
ring, select 1, after two rings, select 2. Select No to disable ringing
entirely. (The lamp still functions to indicate ringing/call status.) Do not
change the settings in the Type, Number, and Priority fields.
Speed Dials
This section describes the types of speed dials:
■
Personal
■
System-wide
■
One-Touch
It also describes how you can print a list of speed dials. You can also print
a set of labels for your telephone, showing which of your buttons are
mapped to features and speed dial numbers.
Although 3101 and 3101SP Basic Telephones each have two Access
buttons that can be made available by your administrator for One-Touch
speed dial numbers, these buttons are mapped by default as a Feature
button and a Transfer button. Changing the settings for the Feature or
Transfer button greatly reduces your ability to use some of the NBX
features.
Personal Speed Dials
You can create a list of up to 99 personal speed dials (using ID numbers
601 through 699) for your telephone. These speed dials are available only
from the telephone for which they were created.
You create, view, and print your personal speed dial list using the NBX
NetSet utility. You can view and dial a personal speed dial number using
the telephone display panel of a 3Com Telephone.

you want the system to dial when you use that ID number.
Include all of the prefix numbers that you would normally dial, such as a 9
or 8 or 1 to access an outside line, and, if necessary, the country code or
area code. Do not use spaces, hyphens, commas, or other nonnumeric
characters.
4 In the Account Code box, type an account code if it is required or useful
for calls to this destination.
5 In the Comment text box, type a brief description, usually a name, that

To reuse your saved LabelMaker, you must run the file that you saved to
your computer. If you download the LabelMaker from the NBX NetSet
utility again, you get the default version, and the download might
overwrite your saved LabelMaker. To create a Windows Desktop shortcut
to your saved LabelMaker, right-click the saved file and then click
Send To > Desktop (create shortcut).
Off-Site
Notification
When you enable off-site notification, the NBX Messaging system notifies
you by e-mail, pager, or telephone that you have received voice mail. You
can then retrieve your messages. Off-site notification consists of one cycle
of up to five attempts to reach you, one attempt for each Attempt row
that you configure in the Off-Site Notification screen.
If your system uses a messaging application other than NBX Messaging,
use the documentation for your messaging application instead of these
instructions.
Off-Site Notification
81
To configure off-site notification for your NBX voice mailbox:
1 Log in to the NBX NetSet utility and go to My Calling Privileges > Call
Permissions. Look to see if your system administrator has enabled
off-site notification for the NBX system and for the Class of Service group
to which your telephone belongs. If not enabled, ask to have these
features enabled.
2 Go to NBX Voice Mail Settings > Offsite Notification.
3 Select whether you want off-site notification for all messages or for
urgent messages only.
Next, you will need to configure the Off-Site Notification Attempts for up
to five attempts at off-site notification.
4 In the first attempt row, in the Notification Method drop-down list,
select Pager, VoiceMail, or EMail
The cycle of notice behaviors differs depending on the method that you
specify for the first attempt. See “Notice Behaviors” later in this chapter.
5 In the Number/Address field:
■
If you selected Pager for Method in step 4:
■
■
■
Enter a pager number. Do not use parentheses, hyphens, or spaces.
Ask your administrator if you need to include the area code and
any other digits that your system needs to dial an outside number,
such as 9, 8, 1, or 0. After you receive the pager message, you call
in to your voice mailbox to listen to your messages.
In the Numeric Page Number field, indicate what you want the
pager to display. Enter a series of digits, such as your telephone
extension number.
If you selected VoiceMail for Method in step 4:
■
Enter the telephone number at which you want to be notified. Do
not use parentheses, hyphens, or spaces. Ask your administrator if
you need to include the area code and all other digits that your
system needs to dial an outside number, such as 9, 8, 1, or 0.
When you choose to be notified by voice mail, the NBX system calls
the number that you enter in this field. When you answer the call,
the system announces the new voice message and allows you to
follow the prompts to access your voice mailbox and listen to and
delete any of your messages.
■
If you selected EMail for Method in step 4:
82
CHAPTER 6: PERSONALIZING YOUR TELEPHONE
■
Enter the e-mail address at which you want to be notified. You can
use different e-mail addresses for different Attempts.
When you choose to be notified by e-mail message, the NBX
system sends you an e-mail message for each voice mail message
that you receive. The voice message may be attached to the e-mail
message as a WAV file. See the tables in “Notice Behaviors” later
in this section.
You can listen to the messages using your PC sound device (a USB
headset or a sound card with either speakers or headphones).
If you delete the e-mail notice with its attached WAV file after you listen
to the message, you delete only the copy. The original voice mail message
remains in your NBX voice mailbox. You must log in to the NBX voice mail
system by telephone or through the NBX NetSet utility to delete your
messages.
6 From the Interval drop-down list box, select the number of minutes that
you want the system to wait after each attempt before it moves to the
next attempt.
The “best” time interval depends on the Attempt method that you
choose. For instance, allow sufficient time after a Pager notification for
the usual delay at your pager supplier.
7 Click Apply.
8 Repeat steps 4 through 7 to set up additional attempts if you want.
The cycle of notice behaviors differs depending on the method that you
select for the first attempt. See “Notice Behaviors” at the end of this
section.
9 You do not need to configure every Attempt row. When you have
configured all of the Attempt rows that you want, click Apply to
complete your changes.
10 Test your off-site notification settings by leaving yourself a voice mail
message.
Additional Notes
■
You can use the same notification method for all five attempts, or any
combination of methods.
■
If your voice mailbox is full and someone tries to leave you a voice mail
message, the NBX system does not send you an e-mail notification.
Off-Site Notification
■
83
When you activate the Telephone Locking feature on your
telephone, the NBX system sends you off-site notification messages
only if the notification number (for example, your pager number) is a
toll-free telephone number. See “Telephone Locking” later in this
chapter.
Notice Behaviors
These tables explain how the cycle of notice behaviors depends on the

Do Not Disturb
Do Not Disturb
85
When the Do Not Disturb feature is in effect, calls coming in to your
telephone immediately go to your default call coverage point without
ringing. You set the default call coverage point from the NBX NetSet
utility by going to Call Forward > Call Forward. See “Forwarding
Incoming Calls” in Chapter 5.
If Call Forward All is in effect, it overrides Do Not Disturb. Calls go to the
call coverage point defined for Call Forward All in the Call Forward >
Call Forward Override page.
You may be able to map the Do Not Disturb feature to an available
Access button on your 3Com Telephone (see the “User Button
Mapping”section, or you can use the Feature Code to enable and disable
the feature.
When Do Not Disturb is in effect:
■
It overrides Call Forward No Answer, Call Forward Busy, and FWD
MAIL.
■
Your telephone does not ring when it receives an incoming call.
If you use a 3Com Attendant Console, the associated status light does
flash when a call arrives.
■
You can use the telephone to dial outgoing calls.
■
You can use the telephone to dial internal and external pages.
■
If your telephone is part of a call pickup group, no other telephone in
the pickup group can retrieve a call that comes directly in to your
telephone. The incoming call goes immediately to the call coverage
point (voice mail, auto attendant, or other extension).
■
If your telephone is part of an ACD group, a hunt group, or a calling
group, incoming calls to the group ring on your telephone. Calls
coming in directly to your telephone (not directed to the group) do
not ring on your telephone. To prevent every call from ringing, you
must enable Do Not Disturb and also log out of the group.
To enable and disable Do Not Disturb using the feature code:
1 Pick up the handset and press Feature + 446.
2 Hang up. Your telephone is now in Do Not Disturb mode. The display
panel on a 3Com Telephone shows DO NOT DISTURB.
86
CHAPTER 6: PERSONALIZING YOUR TELEPHONE
3 To disable Do Not Disturb mode, repeat steps 1 and 2. The DO NOT
DISTURB message disappears from the display panel.
To view your current Do Not Disturb setting even if you do not have a
3Com Telephone or if you are away from your desk, log in to the NBX
NetSet utility and go to My Calling Privileges > Feature Settings.
Preventing
Unauthorized Use
of Your Telephone
Telephone Locking
To prevent others from dialing long-distance or other unauthorized calls
from your telephone permanently, ask your administrator to adjust the
call permissions schedule for your extension, or you can adjust it
temporarily with the Telephone Locking feature.
To enable and disable the Locking feature using the feature code:
1 Pick up the handset and press Feature + 432. The display panel on a
3Com Telephone prompts you to enter your password.
2 Enter your password + # and hang up.
Your telephone is now locked. The display panel shows the Lock icon. It
displays only the directory and system-wide speed dials.
3 To turn off this feature, repeat steps 1 and 2. The Lock icon disappears.
Your call logs and personal speed dials are again available.
Additional Notes
■
When Telephone Locking is activated, a person using your telephone
can dial only toll-free calls, calls to emergency services (such as 911 in
the United States), or calls to telephone numbers that have been
programmed in your system as “internal” calls.
■
Even when Telephone Locking is active on your telephone, your
off-site notification choices remain in effect. That is, notification of
voice mail messages is sent to the outside telephone numbers or
paging numbers that you have specified in the NBX NetSet utility NBX
Voice Mail Settings > Offsite Notification page, even if these
numbers are not toll-free.
■
You can view your current Telephone Lock setting from the NBX
NetSet utility by going to the My Calling Privileges > Feature
Settings.
Class of Service Override
Call Permissions
87
Your administrator establishes Call Permissions to control the types of
calls that can be dialed from your telephone. The administrator can
configure these permissions to change depending on the time of day. For
example, your administrator can prevent long-distance calls from being
dialed from your telephone outside of business hours.
To view your current call permissions, from the NBX NetSet utility, go to
My Calling Privileges > Call Permissions.
Class of Service
Override
The Class of Service Override feature allows you to apply the features
of your own 3Com Telephone temporarily to another 3Com Telephone
on the same local network.
Example:
■
The telephone in your organization’s conference room is configured so
that long-distance telephone calls cannot be dialed from it. You may,
however, need to place a long-distance call during a meeting. Using
the Class of Service Override feature, you can apply the features of
your own telephone to the conference room telephone for one call
only and dial the call, assuming that your Call Permissions allow you
to make long-distance calls from your own telephone.
If your system uses a messaging application other than NBX Messaging,
use the documentation for your messaging application instead of these
instructions.
To activate the one-call-only Class of Service Override from a 3Com
Telephone:
1 Pick up the handset.
2 Press Feature + 433.
3 Dial your telephone extension and press # .
4 Dial your voice mailbox password and press # .
5 When you hear the dial tone, you can dial the call in the same way that
you do from your own 3Com Telephone.
When you use Class of Service (CoS) Override, any reports that are
generated on the NBX system indicate that the CoS features of your own
3Com Telephone were applied temporarily to the telephone on which
you made the call.
88
CHAPTER 6: PERSONALIZING YOUR TELEPHONE
Using a Headset
You can use a headset that has a microphone with any telephone on an
NBX system.
■
General Headset
Instructions
For information on how to use a typical headset and amplifier with
3Com Telephones other than the 3Com Manager’s Telephone or 3102
or 3102B Business Telephone, see “General Headset Instructions”
later in this section.
For 3Com Telephones other than the 3Com Manager’s Telephone or
3102 and 3102B Business Telephones, follow these instructions.
You may need to modify some of these instructions for some headsets or
amplifiers. See the instructions that come with your equipment.
To prepare a headset for all calls:
1 Insert the cord for the headset amplifier into the handset cord receptacle
on the underside of the telephone.
2 Insert the cord for the telephone handset into the headset amplifier.
3 Put on the headset.
4 Pick up the telephone handset and set it on your desk.
To prepare a headset so that you can choose either the handset or the
headset for each call:
1 Insert the cord for the headset amplifier into the handset cord receptacle
on the underside of the telephone.
2 Insert both the headset cord and the handset cord into the headset
amplifier.
3 For headset calls: Lift the handset off the telephone and leave it off. Use
the headset microphone and earphones.
Even when the headset is plugged into the amplifier, you must remove
the handset from the cradle to use the headset.
4 For handset calls: Press the button on the headset amplifier that turns
the headset off, pick up the handset, and speak into it.
To manage calls when you are using the headset:
1 Put the headset on. When a call comes in:
■
If the handset is on hook, pick it up, set it on your desk, and begin to
speak.
Using a Headset
■
89
If the handset is off hook, press the System Appearance button beside
the flashing light.
2 To end a call when you are using a headset:
■
Returning to the
Headset After a
Long Delay
On a 3Com Basic Telephone or an analog telephone, hang up the
handset or press Feature +111.
Certain brands of headsets enter a power-saving mode that prevents the
telephone from ringing for one or more calls when both of these
circumstances are true:
■
The headset amplifier buttons for Mute and On are both set to On.
■
The handset is off the phone for a long time (for instance, overnight).
It may take a few minutes for your headset to return from the
power-saving mode to the active mode when calls first come in, so your
telephone may not ring until the headset has returned to active mode,
and you may miss a call.
If you plan to not use the headset for a long time (for instance,
overnight), 3Com recommends that you set the mute and headset
buttons on the amplifier to Off and hang up the handset on your
telephone. When you are ready to receive calls again, set up the headset
for receiving calls:
1 Pick up the handset on your telephone and set it on your desk.
2 Put on the headset. On the amplifier, set the headset button to On.

92
CHAPTER 7: GETTING MORE FROM YOUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM
Listening to Your
Messages in Your
E-mail
You can listen to your voice mail from any computer that allows you to
access your e-mail. Your e-mail software application must be IMAP-4
compliant, such as Microsoft Outlook. See your administrator for
assistance with this feature.
If you configure your first off-site notification method to send you an
e-mail message when you have voice messages, the NBX system sends
each voice mail message as a sound-file attachment to an e-mail
message. To listen to your messages using your computer, it must have a
sound device such as a USB headset or a sound card with either speakers
or headphones.
When you delete the e-mail message that contains the attached voice
message, you are not deleting the voice message on the NBX system. To
delete voice messages from the NBX system, you must access your voice
mailbox through the telephone or the NBX NetSet utility.
See “Off-Site Notification” in Chapter 6 for a discussion of off-site
notification behavior.
Account (Billing)
Codes
Account Codes allow your administrator to track calls that are associated
with an individual client or account. When you dial a call or when you
answer your telephone, you dial a numeric account code that allows the
NBX system to track time spent on the telephone with a client, perhaps to
be associated with a billable account.
You may be forced to enter an account code for outgoing external calls.
To see if you are forced to enter an account code, log in to the NBX
NetSet Utility and go to My Calling Privileges > Call Permissions. For a
list of public account codes, go to Directory > Account Codes.
To enter a forced account code for an outgoing external call:
1 Dial the phone number.
For a 3Com Entry Telephone or analog telephone, you hear the feature
tone as the system waits for the required account code.
The display panel prompts you for the required account code.
2 Dial the account code that has been assigned by your administrator, and
then press the # key.
The NBX system records the account code and completes the call:
Caller ID
93
■
The account name, if known, displays. If the account code is incorrect,
you are prompted to enter it again.
■
On a 3Com Entry Telephone or analog telephone, if the account code
is incorrect you may have to dial the phone number, dial the correct
account code, and press # again.
To enter an account code at any time before or during an incoming or
outgoing call:
1 Press Feature + 888.
2 Dial the account code that has been assigned by your administrator, and
then press the # key.
The NBX system records the account code and applies it to:
Caller ID
Internal and External
Caller ID
■
The next call, if you activate the Account Codes feature before a call
arrives at your telephone
■
The current call, if you activate the Account Codes feature during a
call
Your administrator can set up your NBX system to allow for Internal and
External Caller ID or can configure the system so that you can block your
identity (telephone number) from anyone you call.
By default, the NBX system shows the extension and name of any internal
caller on the display panel of your 3Com Telephone.
External Caller ID provides the same information for external incoming
calls if your organization subscribes to the service from your local
telephone company and if the caller has not blocked the information
from being sent to the NBX system.
Availability and service charges for External Caller ID vary by location.
Calling Line Identity
Restriction (CLIR)
On certain NBX systems, if your organization subscribes to Caller ID
service from your local telephone company, you can choose to prevent
the NBX system from transmitting your Caller ID information to outside
parties when you dial a call. Your administrator must enable this feature,
called Calling Line Identity Restriction (CLIR), on the NBX system. If this
feature is enabled system-wide, you can choose to restrict calls:
■
For all external (outbound) calls that you dial
94
CHAPTER 7: GETTING MORE FROM YOUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM
OR
■
For only the next single external (outbound) call that you dial
Your administrator can configure your system so that CLIR is always
active, in which case you cannot change the CLIR settings on your
telephone to override this option.
CLIR for All External Calls
To enable CLIR-All for all calls from your telephone:
1 Pick up the handset, and press Feature + 889. The display panel on your
3Com Telephone shows CLIR-ALL on.
2 Dial the number that you want to call.
The NBX system does not send caller ID information on this call or any
future calls until you disable this feature.
To disable CLIR-All:
1 Pick up the handset.
2 Press Feature + 889 again. CLIR-ALL off appears briefly in the display
panel and then disappears when you hang up the handset.
To view your current CLIR-All setting, log in to the NBX NetSet Utility and
go to My Calling Privileges > Feature Settings.
CLIR for Next External Call Only
To enable CLIR for only the next call from your telephone:
1 Pick up the handset.
2 Press Feature + 890. The telephone display panel shows CLIR-NEXT on.
3 Dial the number that you want to call.
4 When you disconnect the call, the CLIR feature is no longer in effect.
CLIR-NEXT on disappears from the display panel.
If you hang up the handset without making a call, the CLIR-NEXT feature
remains active and will apply to the next external call that you make. If
you are unsure about whether CLIR-NEXT is active, pick up the handset,
press Feature + 890, and read the status message in the display panel of
your telephone.
Call Pickup
Call Pickup
95
Use the Call Pickup feature to answer a call that is ringing on another
telephone. This feature is best arranged in advance when you and
another user know that it would be convenient or necessary to answer
calls ringing on that user’s telephone.
You can answer a call that is ringing on another telephone only if you and
that user both are members of the same Call Pickup group or if that user
is a member of a Call Pickup group that allows “nonmember pickup.”
Your administrator configures call pickup groups and can tell you which
group you belong to.
To view the list of Call Pickup groups of which you are a member:
1 Log in to the NBX NetSet Utility and go to System Group Settings >
Call Pickup.
2 Click the group name that you want to view from the Call Pickup Group
list to view the members of that group.

Automatic Call
Distribution
Groups, Hunt
Groups, and Calling
Groups
Your administrator can establish formal and informal call centers so that
incoming calls can be directed to several telephones that have been
associated into automatic call distribution groups, hunt groups, or calling
groups.
A call center is a general term that refers to any system that accepts
incoming calls to a site and ensures that those calls are sent to the proper
96
CHAPTER 7: GETTING MORE FROM YOUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM
destination within the site. The call center can be used, for example, as a
help desk, a reservations counter, an information hotline, or a customer
service center.
If you do not answer, calls that come in to your telephone:
Automatic Call
Distribution
■
Through your extension go to the call coverage point that you have
set up.
■
Through an automatic call distribution group, hunt group, or calling
group follow the call coverage path set up by the administrator for
that group.
Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) distributes calls to agents and queues
the calls that have not been answered before a predetermined time
expires. The ACD also manages prerecorded announcements to callers,
manages individual ACD agents and groups of agents, and provides
database reports on both calls and agents.
Calls coming into ACD are distributed according to rules configured by
the administrator. An agent becomes available to receive ACD calls by
logging in to the ACD group.

follow-up actions after a call. If this feature is enabled by the ACD
administrator, you can activate Wrap-Up Time once per call for a duration
specified by the administrator.
You can activate/deactivate Wrap-Up Time using Feature code 972 or by
mapping an access button to this feature (see “User Button Mapping”).
During Wrap-Up Time, the LED for the mapped button is lit, and the
system routes no calls to this extension except personal calls or Call
Automatic Call Distribution Groups, Hunt Groups, and Calling Groups
99
Group calls. If you need more time than what is allotted by default, you
can use the Extend Wrap-Up Time feature.
Extend Wrap-Up Time
If the Wrap-Up Time feature is enabled by the ACD administrator, the
Extend Wrap-Up Time feature is enabled by default and allows an agent
to extend the Wrap-Up Time period for the same time duration as the
Wrap-Up Time.
This feature is valid only if you are already in the wrap-up mode. You can
activate the Extend Wrap-Up Time once per call using Feature code 973
or by mapping an access button to this feature (see “User Button
Mapping”).
Hunt Groups
Incoming calls ring to one member of the hunt group. If that member’s
telephone is in use, or if that member does not answer the call, the
system “hunts” for another member of the group until the call is
answered or is forwarded to the group call coverage point. For example,
if there are no available members of the hunt group, the call might be
forwarded to a group mailbox or to the receptionist. Figure 4 shows the
path of a call coming into a hunt group.

Hunt groups can be static or dynamic:
■
If you are in a static hunt group, you are always part of that group
along with the other group members.
■
If you are in a dynamic hunt group, you must log in to the group to be
part of it.
To log in to a dynamic hunt group using your 3Com Telephone:
1 Pick up the handset.
2 Press Feature + the feature code for the hunt group. Your administrator
can tell you which feature code to use.
3 Dial the hunt group password and press # . Your administrator can tell you
which password to use.
To log out of a dynamic hunt group using your 3Com Telephone:
1 Pick up the handset.
2 Press Feature + the feature code for the hunt group.
3 Dial the hunt group password.
4 Hang up the telephone.
You or your administrator can configure a hunt group to an Access
button. To log in to or to log out of the hunt group, press the specified
Access button. The indicator next to the button lights to show that you
are logged in.
On the 3Com 2101 Basic Telephone, the display panel shows the
message IN.
To log in to a dynamic hunt group using the NBX NetSet utility:
1 Go to Group Memberships > Hunt Groups.
2 Select the hunt group to which you want to log in.
3 Click Login.
If you log in to a dynamic hunt group and do not answer a call when it
rings on your telephone, the system may log you out of the group
depending on how the administrator has configured the group.

Supervisory
Monitoring
Supervisory monitoring is a feature that is typically used in call centers to
allow supervisors to join a conversation between an agent and a
customer to ensure proper customer support. The supervisor’s presence
may or may not be announced to the agent or customer by a tone.
Supervisory monitoring enables monitoring of incoming calls to
Automatic Call Distribution Groups and Hunt Groups. Other calls to and
from the agent’s telephone are also available for monitoring, including:
■
When an agent calls a customer back (outbound call)
■
When an agent receives a call from a customer on their Direct Inward
Dial (DID)
■
3-party Conference calls (The monitoring party counts as one of the
parties in an NBX conference, which supports up to four parties.)
The supervisor must provide a password to access the agent’s extension
during these calls.
Your organization may be legally required to add an announcement to
tell callers that their call may be monitored.
Agent Role for 3Com
Entry and Analog
Telephones
Supervisory
Monitoring
Terminology
3Com telephones that do not have a display panel and appropriate soft
buttons such as, the 3Com Entry Telephone or an analog telephone, can
operate only as endpoint devices for Supervisory Monitoring. This means
that although a supervisor may be able to monitor agents who are using
a 3Com Entry telephone or an analog telephone, a supervisor cannot use
either or these telephones to monitor agents.
The following definitions help to explain how Supervisory Monitoring
works in the NBX system:
Supervisory Monitoring Domains — are created by the NBX System
Administrator and specify the following information:
■
The supervisory monitoring domain’s unique name and password
Supervisory Monitoring
103
■
The types of calls that can be monitored (Incoming Group (ACD, HG,
or RP) Only calls or All calls)
■
The calling groups (ACD, HG, or RP) that can be monitored
■
The agents (users) who can be monitored
■
Announcement tones for Monitor, Whisper, and Barge-In modes
A special system domain called the Privacy List specifies users who
cannot be monitored. In addition, any users who have the Call Privacy
privilege enabled for their Class of Service (CoS) group can prevent
individual calls from being monitored. For more information on privacy,
see “Call Privacy” later in this chapter.
Agents — must be defined as members of a supervisory monitoring
domain. This includes people who take a transferred call or answer one
with call pickup.
Supervisors — are people using the domain password to monitor the
agent’s call. The supervisor must provide the password of the supervisory
monitoring domain that has the agent (user) listed. The supervisor must
use a 3Com Telephone with a display panel and appropriate soft buttons;
not a 3Com Entry Telephone, 3Com Cordless Telephone, or an analog
telephone.
Customers — are people who make an incoming call to an agent
(supervisory monitoring domain member). A customer can be an internal
or external caller.
Monitor — allows the supervisor to listen to a call.
Whisper — allows the monitoring supervisor to speak to the agent
without the customer hearing.
Barge-In — allows the supervisor to speak to both the agent and the
customer.
Monitor
Monitor (also called Silent Monitor) allows an authorized supervisor to
listen to calls that are received or initiated by an agent who does not have
privacy enabled and is a member of the supervisor’s monitoring domain.
The administrator configures the NBX system to specify whether a tone
audible to the agent plays when the supervisor joins to monitor the call.
104
CHAPTER 7: GETTING MORE FROM YOUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM
To monitor an agent’s call:
1 Pick up the handset.
2 Press Feature + 425. Or press the Access Button if one is configured for
Monitor.
The display panel prompts you for the domain password.
3 Enter the password and press the OK soft button or press # .
The system validates the password. If valid, you receive a confirmation
tone and are prompted to enter the agent’s extension.
4 Enter the agent’s extension.
Whisper
■
If the agent is valid and available, you join the call, either silently or
with a tone announcing the call to the agent depending on system
configuration.
■
Your display panel now shows options to Whisper, Change Agent,
or Barge-In. The display panel on a 3Com 3103 Manager telephone
also shows a Whisper icon.
■
Only the supervisor’s display panel indicates that supervisory
monitoring is in use.
Whisper (also called Coaching) allows a supervisor to speak to the agent
during a monitored call without the customer hearing this advice. The
administrator configures the NBX system to specify if a tone audible to
the agent is played when the supervisor enables Whisper.
To use Whisper or Barge-In, a supervisor must first be monitoring the call.
To whisper to an agent:
1 Monitor the agent’s call.
2 Press the soft button to select Whisper from the display panel.
Barge-In
■
Whisper is enabled for you, either silently or with a tone announcing
the change, depending on system configuration.
■
Your display panel now provides options to Monitor, Change Agent,
or Barge-In. The display panel on a 3Com 3103 Manager telephone
also shows a Whisper icon.
Barge-In allows a supervisor to speak to both the agent and customer
during a monitored call. The administrator configures the NBX system to
Supervisory Monitoring
105
specify whether a tone audible to the agent and customer is played when
the supervisor enables Barge-In.
To use Whisper or Barge-In, a supervisor must first be monitoring the call.
To barge in to a call:
1 Monitor the agent’s call.
2 Press the soft button to select Barge-In from the display panel.
Change Agent
■
Barge-In is enabled for you, either silently or with a tone announcing
the change, depending on system configuration.
■
Your display panel now provides options to Monitor, Change Agent,
or Whisper.
While supervisory monitoring is enabled on a call, a supervisor can
change the agent being monitored.
To monitor a different agent in the same supervisory monitoring domain:
1 Monitor the current agent’s call.
2 Press the soft button to select Change Agent.
The display panel prompts you for the extension number of the agent.
3 Enter the extension number of the agent.
Call Privacy
■
You begin to monitor the call, either silently or with a tone
announcing the call to the agent depending on system configuration.
■
Your display panel now provides options to Whisper, Change Agent,
or Barge-In.
Call Privacy allows a user to prevent a call from being monitored. NBX
telephone users can toggle Call Privacy on and off to block or accept
supervisory monitoring on a call-by-call basis. (In contrast, membership in
the Privacy List domain set by the administrator ensures that all calls
associated with this user cannot be monitored.)
The NBX administrator can enable or disable Call Privacy for each Class of
Service (CoS) user group.
If your administrator assigned you to a CoS group that allows Call Privacy,
you can use Feature code 428 to prevent your current call from being
monitored. To see if you can activate Call Privacy, log in to the NBX NetSet
106
CHAPTER 7: GETTING MORE FROM YOUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM
utility and go to My Calling Privileges > Call Permissions. You are
allowed to activate Call Privacy if the Call Privacy feature is enabled.
You can activate Call Privacy before a call (for example, by going off-hook
and dialing Feature code 428 and then dialing an internal or external
call), or during a call (for example, dialing Feature code 428 after
answering an incoming call). The administrator may also map Feature
code 428 to one of your telephone system access buttons.
To activate (toggle on) Call Privacy:
Press Feature + 428. Or press the Call Privacy Access button if one is
programmed on your telephone.
■
The message “CALL PRIVACY ON” appears on the display panel to
indicate that Call Privacy is enabled.
In the case of an incoming call, Call Privacy cannot be activated while the
session is alerting. In this case, you must answer the incoming call before
activating Call Privacy.
To deactivate (toggle off) Call Privacy:
While Call Privacy is on, press Feature + 428 again. Or press the Call
Privacy Access button if one is programmed on your telephone.
■
The message “CALL PRIVACY OFF” appears on the display panel to
indicate that Call Privacy is disabled.
When any active Call Privacy session ends, (for example: you activate Call
Privacy, initiate a call, and then exit the call) the Call Privacy settings are
no longer applicable and the next call is open to monitoring.
More About
Supervisory
Monitoring
These usage tips and limitations apply to Supervisory Monitoring:
■
A supervisor can only monitor an agent who is a member of the
domain associated with the domain password.
You can log in to the NBX NetSet utility and go to System Group
Settings > Supervisory Monitoring to view the status on whether or
not you can be monitored. Also, if you are a user and have the domain
password, you can log in and view domain membership information.
WhisperPage
107
■
A supervisor cannot monitor an agent who is a member of the Privacy
List domain. Likewise, a supervisor cannot monitor an agent who is on
a call with a party who is a member of the Privacy List domain.
■
A supervisor cannot monitor an agent who has activated Call Privacy
(Feature code 428).
■
A supervisor can monitor a call, put it on hold, and monitor a second
call. A supervisor can invoke supervisory monitoring on only two calls
(one active and one on hold) at a time.
■
A supervisor cannot monitor a call where WhisperPage is being used.
For more information on using WhisperPage, see “WhisperPage” later
in this chapter.
■
If a customer or agent conferences in an additional caller, or transfers,
parks, or sends a call to voice mail, a supervisor monitoring the call is
dropped from the call.
■
If a customer or agent puts a call on hold before a supervisor attempts
to monitor it, the supervisor will not be able to monitor the call. If a
customer or agent puts a call on hold after a supervisor is monitoring
it, the supervisor will not be dropped from the call.
For additional tips and considerations on using Supervisory Monitoring,
see your system administrator.
WhisperPage
The WhisperPage feature allows you to dial an NBX extension that is
involved in an active conversation with another person and speak to that
person without the other party on the call being able to hear you.
WhisperPage is typically used in the workplace by an assistant and
manager. While a manager is on a call, an assistant can start a
WhisperPage session to alert the manager of an important meeting or
call. During the WhisperPage session, the assistant cannot hear the
manager or the third party and the third party cannot hear the comments
of the assistant.
If the manager is not on an active call when the assistant starts a
WhisperPage session, the call is placed just as if the assistant dialed the
manager’s extension.
108
CHAPTER 7: GETTING MORE FROM YOUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM
Both the manager and the assistant in a WhisperPage session must be
assigned to an NBX WhisperPage domain and have appropriate
WhisperPage access privileges.
To view your WhisperPage access privileges, log in to the NBX NetSet
Utility and go to System Group Settings > WhisperPage. This page
reports the following information:
■
Whether or not the WhisperPage alert tone is enabled.
■
The period of time in seconds (called decline time) before an initiated
WhisperPage session becomes active.
■
Users (listeners) with whom you can initiate a WhisperPage session
■
Users (speakers) who can initiate a WhisperPage session with you
The NBX NetSet administrator can enable or disable the alert tone and
specify the Decline Time, which ranges from 0 to 9.9 seconds. For
additional tips and considerations on using WhisperPage, see “More
About WhisperPage” later in this chapter.
Starting a
WhisperPage Session
To start a WhisperPage session:
1 Pick up the handset.
2 Press Feature + 426. Or press the Access Button if one is configured for
WhisperPage.
The display panel prompts you for the WhisperPage extension.
3 Enter the extension you want to whisper to.
If the listener’s telephone has a display panel, it shows the WhisperPage
attempt and your extension. Additionally, an optional tone may be played
to alert the listener.
At this point, the listener can either accept the WhisperPage request by
doing nothing, or refuse the request by activating Do Not Disturb.
If the listener accepts the WhisperPage request, after a brief delay, you
will hear a tone that tells you to begin the WhisperPage session.
Additionally, your telephone’s display panel shows “Whispering” and the
listener’s extension.
4 Begin speaking. When you have finished, go off-hook to end the
WhisperPage session.
Call Park
More About
WhisperPage
109
These usage tips and limitations apply to WhisperPage:
■
The WhisperPage listener can refuse or end a WhisperPage session at
any time by activating Do Not Disturb.
■
You cannot initiate a WhisperPage session to:
■
A Supervisory Monitoring call
■
A call that is on hold
■
While using WhisperPage, if either the listener or the other party on
the call invokes Transfer, Park, Conference, or Forward to VM, the
WhisperPage session ends.
■
You can start up to two simultaneous WhisperPage sessions, one or
both on hold, providing you have a line available for each session.
For additional tips and considerations on using WhisperPage, see your
system administrator.
Call Park
Use Call Park to place a call in a “holding pattern” and make it available
for another person to pick up from any telephone on the system. Use the
internal paging feature, the external paging feature, or both, to
announce the call. The recipient can retrieve the call from any 3Com
telephone or analog telephone by dialing the Call Park extension that you
give during your announcement.
This feature is useful in any of these circumstances:
■
The recipient is elsewhere in the building.
■
You want to continue a call on another telephone, for instance, in a
conference room for privacy, and transferring the call does not give
you enough time to retrieve it.
When you park a call, you assign it a Call Park extension, which anyone
can use to retrieve it. Table 9 lists the default Call Park extension
numbers. Ask your administrator to verify the Call Park extensions for
your location.

CHAPTER 7: GETTING MORE FROM YOUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM
If the call is not answered within 5 minutes (default) after it is parked, it
rings again at the original telephone. Your administrator can modify the
length of this waiting period.
To park a call:
1 While you are on a call, press Feature + 444. Or press the Access button
assigned to Call Park.
2 Dial a Call Park extension from the list shown in Table 9 or the list of
extensions at your location.
If you select a Call Park extension that is already in use, Park Cancelled
appears on the display panel on your 3Com Telephone, and the call rings
back to your telephone. Try another Call Park extension.
To notify another user about the parked call:
■
■
From 3Com 3101 and 3101SP Basic Telephones, select an Access
button that is assigned for placing telephone calls, and dial the
user’s extension, or use the paging feature. See “Paging” next for
details.
From a 3Com 2101 Basic Telephone, press and release the hook
switch. When you hear the dial tone, dial the user’s extension, or
use the paging feature. See “Paging” next for details.
To retrieve a parked call:
1 Pick up the handset of any telephone on the system.
2 Dial the Call Park extension that was assigned to the call.
Paging
Paging is the general term used to describe the act of broadcasting a
voice message through audio speakers.
You can:
■
Page all extensions with speakers on the system
This method uses default codes in Table 10.
■
Page a subset of all extensions on the system, called a zone.
This method uses extensions that the administrator configures for this
purpose.
Paging
111
Each method allows you to broadcast a message to different destinations,
depending on your location and equipment.
Do not press the Feature button before you dial the Paging code.
Paging the System
When you page the system, you broadcast a message to all internal
extensions with speakers, to a Public Address (PA) system, or to both
simultaneously. Paging codes, as described in Table 10, have default
values for each destination.

Simultaneous Paging
Broadcast an announcement externally
and internally at the same time.
To page, perform the following steps using your 3Com Telephone:
1 Pick up the handset.
2 Dial the appropriate paging code on your system.
3 Speak the broadcast message into your handset and hang up.
Paging Zones
A page zone is a subset of internal extensions to which you can direct a
broadcast using a configured extension. You can page a zone, a P.A.
system, or both the zone and the P.A. system simultaneously. Zone
extensions are configured by the administrator.
112
CHAPTER 7: GETTING MORE FROM YOUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM
To discover the page zone extensions on your system:
1 Log in to the NBX NetSet Utility and go to System Group Settings >
Page Zones.
The NBX NetSet utility lists the existing page zones and their extension
numbers.
2 Click the page zone extension to list the members of that zone.
You can view zone memberships only if the administrator authorizes you
to do so.
To page a zone, a P.A. system, or both, perform the following steps using
your 3Com Telephone:
1 Pick up the handset.
2 Dial the appropriate extension to page the zone.
3 Speak the broadcast message into your handset.
4 Hang up.
3Com Cordless Telephones, 3Com Entry Telephones, and analog
telephones can initiate but cannot receive a zone page.
Configurable
Operators
The Configurable Operators feature gives a caller who is directed to voice
mail the option of going to another destination.
You can configure your own operators for those who call your extension
(if the administrator allows it), and you can also use this feature as a caller
to another device.
How Configurable
Operators Work
Following is a brief description of how the system directs a caller from
your voice mail to operators that you designate:
1 If you do not answer a call, the system invokes your voice mail.
2 The caller listens to your prerecorded voice mail message, which includes
the instruction to press an access digit (0 or 9) in order to reach the
appropriate operator.
When you employ a configurable operator, you must re-record your
personal voice mail greeting to tell callers that an operator is available to
them if they press the appropriate access digit during the voice mail
greeting.
Configurable Operators
113
3 The caller presses 0 or 9.
4 The call is redirected to the operator that you designated.
The caller can leave a message, and then press 0 or 9 to transfer to a
configured operator.
Configuring the
Operators
You can view the operators’ settings, and modify those settings if your
administrator allows it.
The operator’s call-handling rules (such as call coverage) may apply to the
voice mail caller. Also, you must have external-to-external permissions in
order for transfers to external phone numbers to complete successfully.
If you or the administrator do not configure operator destinations, the
system directs an operator-bound caller to extension 501.
Viewing Your Operator Permissions
To find out if you have permission to configure operators:
1 Log in to the NBX NetSet Utility and go to My Calling Privileges > Call
Permissions.
Your current permissions to configure the System Operator and the
Personal Operator are listed.
Configuring the Operator Destinations
To configure your own destinations for System and Personal Operator:
1 Log in to the NBX NetSet Utility and go to NBX Voice Mail Settings >
Personal Operator.
The current System Operator and Personal Operator extensions and
access digits appear. If the administrator has given you the appropriate
configuration permissions, the extensions appear in editable text boxes.
2 Edit the destinations to include the appropriate extensions.
The operator destination text string cannot exceed 16 characters.
3 Click Apply to complete your changes.
If you clear an operator destination (using the Clear check box), calls
directed to that operator are directed instead to the default system
operator (extension 501).
114
CHAPTER 7: GETTING MORE FROM YOUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM
Using Message
Waiting Indicator to
Telephone
The Message Waiting Indicator (MWI) to Telephone allows a user to light
a status button next to a programmable access button and leave a call
back number on another telephone. This feature is distinct from voice
mail in that the telephone does not ring and there is no voice mail
message. The light appears next to the Access button, not the message
waiting light used for voice mail. Example: A principal can use this
feature to notify a teacher, without interrupting the class, to call the
office as soon as possible.
Sending an MWI
Message
You can send an MWI message to any telephone on your NBX system
that has an MWI Retrieve button enabled. Sending an MWI message
turns on the light on the target telephone if it is not already lit, and leaves
your telephone number as a callback number.
You cannot send an MWI message to:
■
Telephones that do not have an MWI Retrieve button enabled or that
have reached their MWI message limit (30)
■
Remote NBX systems over external line
■
Calling Groups, Hunt Groups, or ACD Groups
To send an MWI message:
1 Pick up the handset, and press Feature + 412. Or press the MWI to Ph
Send access button. The display panel on your 3Com Telephone shows
Send MWI To:.
2 Dial the extension that you want to call and press # .
3 The display panel on your 3Com Telephone shows Success.
Retrieving an MWI
Message
To receive and retrieve an MWI message, you must have a 3Com
Telephone with a display panel and a programmable access button with
status light configured for MWI Retrieve. You or your administrator can
also configure additional buttons for MWI To Ph Send and MWI Cancel.
A 3Com 2101 Basic Telephone cannot receive an MWI message. An
analog telephone cannot receive an MWI message.
When the light is lit on your telephone, you can press the MWI Retrieve
button, scroll through your display panel to see the caller ID, and return
the call. When you press the MWI Retrieve button, you turn off the MWI
light. You may still have one or more calls in a list to return.
Using Message Waiting Indicator to Telephone
115
To retrieve an MWI number:
1 Pick up the handset and press the MWI Retrieve access button. The
display panel shows the total number of MWI messages and the number
of new MWI messages on your list.
2 Scroll down the display panel to see the extension for the most recent
MWI sender. The most recent call is at the top of the list.
3 Press the Call soft button to call the sender.
You can also retrieve an MWI message with Feature + 414.
Deleting MWI
Messages
Press the MWI Retrieve button to turn off the MWI light until you receive
another MWI message. It does not delete the MWI message. Messages
remain in your list until you explicitly delete them or until the NBX system
is rebooted. Your telephone can store a maximum of 30 MWI messages.
When it is full, it will reject new messages, so be sure to delete unneeded
messages.
To delete all MWI messages:
1 Press the MWI Retrieve access button. The display panel shows the
number of MWI messages on your list and the options to Delete All or
Exit.
2 Press the Delete All soft button.
3 The display panel asks you to confirm the delete of the whole MWI list.
Press the Yes soft button.
To delete a single MWI message:
1 Press the MWI Retrieve access button. The display panel shows how many
MWI messages are on your list.
2 Scroll down the display panel to see the MWI message you want to
delete.
3 Press the Delete soft button.
4 The display panel asks you to confirm the delete of the entry. Press the
Yes soft button.
Cancelling an MWI
Message
After you have sent an MWI message, you can cancel it and remove it
from the list on the target telephone. If it is the only unattended MWI
message on the target telephone, cancelling it turns off the MWI light.
116
CHAPTER 7: GETTING MORE FROM YOUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM
You can cancel an MWI message only from the same extension from
which you sent the MWI message.
To cancel an MWI message:
1 Pick up the handset and press Feature + 413. Or press the MWI Cancel
access button. The display panel on your 3Com Telephone shows Cancel
MWI To:.
2 Dial the extension to which you sent the MWI message that you want to
cancel and press # .
3 The display panel on your 3Com Telephone shows Cancel Sent.
Dialing a Call to a
Remote Office
Using Unique
Extensions
You can dial calls between sites in your organization that are separated
geographically but that are linked by a Wide Area Network (WAN)
connection. Each site must have an NBX system. Typical configurations
are described in the next sections.
In the sample network shown in Figure 6, everyone in the entire
organization has a unique telephone extension. Whenever you make a
call to an extension that is not located at your own site, your NBX system
sets up a connection to the NBX system at the other extension’s site.
In this example, to call a user in Dallas, a user in Chicago dials a Dallas
extension (3000 through 3999). The dial plan on the Chicago NBX system
sets up the necessary connection to the Dallas NBX system and then to
the extension at that site.

Using Site Codes
If some users have overlapping telephone extensions, your administrator
can configure your telephone system to use site codes for you to dial
people at remote offices. Your administrator chooses the site codes for
your system. In this example, you dial a site code first, followed by the
extension at the site.
For example, as shown in Figure 7, to call someone in Atlanta, a user in
Chicago dials the site code 62 and then the appropriate extension (1000
through 3999). To reach a user in Dallas, a user in Chicago dials 63 and
then the appropriate extension (1000 through 3999). The site code
prevents conflicts between the remote extension number and a
duplicated extension number at the local site (Chicago).

Bridged Extensions
With a bridged extension, buttons and status lights on one telephone are
associated with buttons and status lights on another telephone. On the
primary telephone, you can perform all operations (such as dialing
telephone calls, placing calls on hold, forwarding calls, and so on). On the
secondary telephone, you can answer calls that are made to the primary
telephone’s extension but you cannot make calls using the buttons that
are associated with the primary telephone.
The administrator can create bridged extensions on:
■
Any 3Com Manager’s Telephone
■
Any 3Com Business Telephone
■
Any 3Com 3101 or 3101SP Basic Telephone
Delayed Ringing
■
119
A 3Com 2101 Basic Telephone if a 3Com Attendant Console is
associated with it. The administrator creates the bridged extension on
the Attendant Console.
Example:
If an assistant’s job is to answer a manager’s telephone calls, the
administrator can map the manager’s extension on the assistant’s
telephone. The manager’s telephone is the primary telephone, and the
assistant’s telephone is the secondary telephone.
Your administrator can map a primary telephone’s extension to one or
more secondary telephones.
Delayed Ringing
(3Com Business Telephone, 3Com Manager’s Telephone, and
Attendant Console only) The Delayed Ringing feature prevents a call
on a shared line from ringing on a specific telephone until the incoming
call rings on another telephone for a specified number of times.
A shared line can be a bridged extension or an incoming analog
telephone line that is mapped to more than one telephone.
Example:
The administrator programs (maps) a telephone extension to appear on
both a manager’s telephone and the assistant’s telephone; that is, it is a
bridged extension. The administrator has also enabled the Delayed
Ringing feature on the manager’s telephone and has specified 4 rings (a
typical setting).
When a call comes in to the manager on that extension, the assistant’s
telephone rings 4 times before the call audibly rings on the manager’s
telephone. Even during the first silent rings, the line’s status light on the
manager’s telephone flashes, allowing the manager to answer the call if
required.
Using Pulse Dialing
In some locations, analog telephone users must dial telephone calls using
pulse dialing instead of tone dialing (also called Dual Tone Multi
Frequency, or DTMF, dialing).
Your administrator must configure the Analog Line Card ports for pulse
dialing.
120
CHAPTER 7: GETTING MORE FROM YOUR TELEPHONE SYSTEM
Examples:
■
Some of your telephone lines are provided by a telephone company
that supports only pulse dialing while other lines are provided by a
different telephone company that supports DTMF dialing.
■
Your organization’s telephone service provider offers low-cost,
pulse-dialing-only service.
■
In some situations, you must switch to DTMF dialing during a call. For
example, if your call is answered by an automated attendant that
requires that you enter information from your telephone keypad, you
must typically enter the information using DTMF dialing.
To change from pulse dialing to DTMF during a call:
1 Press Feature + 891.
2 Your connection is switched from pulse to tone (DTMF) for the remainder
of the call. When you hang up, the port you were using on the Analog
Line Card reverts to pulse dialing mode.
You or your administrator can map a button on your telephone so that
you can press the button to change from pulse dialing to DTMF during a
call. When you hang up, the port that you were using on the Analog Line
Card reverts to pulse dialing mode.
You can configure a personal speed dial in the NBX NetSet utility to dial a
number in pulse dial mode and then to switch to DTMF. Use the left
angle-bracket character (<) in the NBX NetSet utility as the command to
switch to DTMF mode. You can also include the digits that you want the
system to dial after it switches to DTMF. The system dials any digits after
the < using DTMF tones. When you hang up, the port that you were
using on the Analog Line Card reverts to pulse dialing mode.
For additional information about programming speed dials, see “Personal
Speed Dials” in Chapter 6.

FEATURE CODES
This chapter describes how to use feature codes with the 3Com®
Telephones. It covers these topics:
■
NBX Tones
■
Feature Codes with 3Com Telephones
■
Using Feature Codes
For help on accessing NBX® features from an analog or a third-party,
SIP-based IP telephone, see the applicable NBX Feature Codes Guide in
the NBX NetSet™ utility.
NBX Tones
As you use your 3Com Telephone to receive voice mail and use the
feature codes on the NBX system, you hear these tones:
■
Dial Tone — When you lift the receiver to place a call or begin using
one of the features, you hear the normal Dial Tone (except for the
circumstance described in the next bulleted item).
■
New Messages Dial Tone — When your voice mailbox has either
new or unsaved messages and you pick up your handset, you hear the
New Messages Dial Tone (a repeated short tone, also called the
“stutter” tone) until you delete or save every message. Your
administrator can turn the New Messages Dial Tone on or off.
■
Feature Entry Tone — When you lift the handset and press the
Feature button to begin using one of the features, you hear the
Feature Entry Tone, which is a steady sound at a lower pitch than the
normal dial tone. You must enter data, for instance a feature code
number, your password, or an extension, as specified in Table 11.
■
Confirmation Tone — After certain steps, as when you add a party
to a conference call, you hear a short Confirmation Tone or “beep,”
which confirms that you have completed the action.
124
CHAPTER 8: FEATURE CODES
■
Error Tone — You hear the “fast busy” tone, also called the
“congestion” tone, when no circuits are available. In addition, you
hear the Error Tone if you make an error such as trying to enter an
unsupported feature code, an invalid extension, or an invalid
password. Hang up and start the feature code sequence again.
■
Feature Active Tone — Example: You activate one of the
“persistent” features, for instance, you lock your telephone, and then
hang up. The next time that you pick up the handset on your analog
telephone, you hear the Feature Active Tone. This pair of tones, a
sound followed by a higher sound, is repeated to remind you that you
have enabled one of these features:
■
Caller ID Restriction — All
■
Do Not Disturb
■
Forward All Calls to Voice Mail (that is, to your call coverage point)
■
Lock or Unlock Your Telephone
■
Call Forward All
■
Call Forward Busy
■
Call Forward No Answer
These features are “persistent,” that is, each one remains active until
you turn it off, as described in Table 11.
If you forget which of the persistent features you have activated on
your telephone, log in to the NBX NetSet Utility and go to My Calling
Privileges > Feature Settings. See “NBX NetSet Utility” in Chapter 1
for information on how to log in to the NBX NetSet utility.
Exception: If you have activated one or more persistent features and your
mailbox has messages, you hear the New Messages Dial Tone whenever
you pick up the handset until you have deleted all messages.
Feature Codes with
3Com Telephones
A large number of telephone features are available by pressing the
Feature button on a 3Com telephone and entering a three-digit feature
code. These feature codes are listed in Table 11.
■
If your telephone does not have a button programmed for Feature,
ask your administrator to program one.
■
Because your administrator determines whether some of the features
that are described in this chapter are available for your telephone or
Using Feature Codes
125
for the entire system, some of these features may not be available to
you.
3Com Basic
Telephone
Some of the features that are listed in Table 11 are already available in
single-purpose buttons on 3Com Basic Telephones like Hold, Volume
Control, Message, and the Scroll buttons that you use to search the
directories.
The 3Com 2101 Basic Telephone has three programmable buttons that
are set (from left to right) at the factory to Feature, Call Toggle, and
Transfer. On the 3Com 3101 and 3101SP Basic Telephones, the first two
(from left to right) programmable buttons are line appearance buttons
and the next two buttons are set to Feature and Transfer. Your
administrator can change the programming on these buttons, although
changing them might limit which NBX features you can use on your
telephone.
For all other NBX features, use the preprogrammed Feature button and
the feature codes listed in Table 11.
Using Feature
Codes
Follow these steps to use NBX feature codes:
1 Pick up the handset.
2 Press the Feature button.
3 Dial the feature code and any additional values as specified in Table 11.
4 Hang up when your call is complete or you have activated the features
that you want.

3COM 3105 AND 1105
ATTENDANT CONSOLES
3Com Attendant Consoles and the NBX Complement Attendant
Software (CAS) application enable a receptionist to handle high call
volumes efficiently. Although receptionists are the primary users of the
Attendant Console and CAS, the two can also be used by busy sales
representatives and others who receive a high volume of telephone calls
or who make frequent calls to the same telephone numbers.
This chapter covers these features:
■
3Com Attendant Console — A device that works along with 3Com
Telephones to increase call handling capability. In many offices, the
Attendant Console is used by a receptionist or switchboard operator,
who is referred to in this guide as “the receptionist.”
■
Complement Attendant Software (CAS) — A software application
that allows a receptionist to answer and route calls using a personal
computer. Your administrator installs the Complement Attendant
Software on your computer from the NBX Resource Pack CD.
The Attendant Console and Complement Attendant Software can be
used at the same time. However:
■
When incoming calls appear on the Attendant Console, you must
handle them using the buttons of the console.
■
When calls appear on the CAS computer screen, you must handle
them using the mouse and the CAS software features.
130
CHAPTER 9: 3COM 3105 AND 1105 ATTENDANT CONSOLES
3Com Attendant
Console
The 3Com 3105 and 1105 Attendant Consoles each have 50 Access
buttons and 4 preprogrammed Feature buttons. Although the design of
the two Attendant Consoles is different, the buttons work the same way.
In effect, the Attendant Console is an extension of the 3Com Telephone
to which it is associated.
See Figure 8 for 3Com 3105 Attendant Console buttons and controls and
Figure 9 for 3Com 1105 Attendant Console buttons and controls.
Access Buttons
The 50 Access buttons on a 3Com Attendant Console can each have two
sets of assignments: 1 through 50, and 51 through 100. To toggle
between the two sets of assignments, you press the Shift button.
Your administrator can assign features to each Access button. Possible
features include:
■
Status of internal telephone extensions (busy, available)
■
Status of external telephone lines
■
Speed dials for:
■
Feature Buttons
■
User extensions
■
Pager numbers
■
Cellular telephone numbers
Message Waiting Indicators (MWI) for:
■
Group mailboxes
■
Phantom or personal mailboxes
■
Time of Day Service Modes (See your administrator for details.)
■
Status of ACD, Hunt, and Calling Group lines
The four Feature buttons are preprogrammed for the most common
features needed by a receptionist: Transfer, Transfer to Voicemail, Park,
and Hold. The Shift button does not affect the operation of the Feature
buttons. Your administrator can change the features assigned to each
button using the NBX NetSet utility.

Complement
Attendant
Software
The Complement Attendant Software is an optional component, which
requires a license. On your personal computer, the Complement
Attendant Software displays your telephone directory in a series of tabs.
Each tab sorts the directory by a different type of information, for
example, by last name, by department, or by extension.
When you answer a call using the Complement Attendant Software, you
can select a user from the directory and transfer the call to that user.
Complement Attendant Software

Table 12 describes the main elements of the Complement Attendant
Software screens.
Table 12 Elements of the Complement Attendant Screens
Element
Purpose
Command Buttons
The buttons on the main screen provide a quick and easy way
to perform the various system functions. There are several
function buttons that are displayed above the Call List on the
main screen. The behavior of these buttons is context
sensitive. This means that depending on the state of the calls
that are being controlled by the CAS software, certain buttons
may be enabled or disabled and the operation that a button
performs may also change. For example, the Answer button is
only enabled if there is an incoming call. If there is a call active
the Answer button will appear as a Release button and
pressing it will terminate the call.
Call List
The Call List is located at the top of the main window directly
below the main menu. The Call List provides caller ID
information (name and number), call status, and call duration
for all of the calls that are currently present on your phone.
There can be more than one call shown in the call list. The
number of calls in the list corresponds to the number of calls
that currently exist on your phone. The maximum number of
calls that can be displayed in the call list is dependent on the
number of access lines that are assigned to your phone. By
default the number of lines is three.
Directory List
The tabs on the Directory List provide a quick and easy way to
organize the names in the directory. There are three different
tabs that can be used to create different views of the
directory.
Main Directory tab
Lists all of the directory entries except for those that have been
added to the hidden list.
Quick List tab
Lists the directory entries that have been added to the Quick
List. The Quick List gives you the ability to put frequently called
users into a separate, easily searchable list.
Hidden List tab
Lists the directory entries that have been added to the Hidden
List.
Search Field
The Search field provides the extension number and name of
the person selected in the directory.

Wall-Mount Position
To mount a device on a wall, put the bracket on the opposite end of the
telephone in the low-profile position. Pull and twist the knob on the
underside of the phone 90 degrees (Figure 16) so that the spring- loaded
peg projects out on the top of the phone (Item 1 in Figure 17).

An optional security wall-mount bracket that ensures that the device
cannot be removed by unauthorized persons is available for the following
devices:
■
3Com 2101Basic Telephones
For how to order this bracket, consult your 3Com NBX Voice-Authorized
Partner. Read and follow the instructions that come with the bracket.
Moving Your
Telephone
All 3Com telephones have the Automatic Telephone Relocation feature.
Each telephone has a unique “address.” You can move your telephone to
another location, connect it to any Ethernet jack on the LAN, and still
maintain all of your personalized features, speed dials, and extension
number.
Swapping
Telephones
Because your extension number and personal settings are associated with
your physical telephone, only your administrator can move phone
extension settings from one telephone to another.
Cleaning Your
Telephone
Always unplug your telephone from the power source and from the
network before you clean it. Use a soft cloth dampened with mild
detergent.
WARNING: Failure to unplug the telephone before you clean it could
result in electrical shock.
Troubleshooting
Problems
Table 14 lists possible problems that you may encounter and the most
likely solutions. Where possible, each solution refers to the section in this
guide where you can find detailed information.

Ethernet cable, make sure that power is applied to
the cable at its source.
