When you are on a call, pressing All Calls once selects the current call
or the first call on the list; pressing All Calls twice selects the header.
With the header selected, the softkeys that display are the same as those
that display when the phone is idle. This is useful, for example, if you

Using the All Calls feature is recommended highly if you have multiple
lines on your phone.

Phone Applications
Phone applications allow you to access the following:
• Call History
• Preferences
• Accessories
• WLAN Sign in
• Running Applications
• Phone Information
• Administrator Settings (For system administrators only).
Call History
Call History allows you to view information on the last 150 calls on your phone. An icon displays
indicating the type of call:
• Received—
• Placed—
• Missed—
The caller ID is displayed with the call icon. If the caller ID is unavailable, then the phone number is
displayed. If the phone number is unavailable, then “Unknown” is displayed. All Call History items
are integrated into one list and are ordered by time (latest to oldest). There is a 150 call limit per phone
and not per line. For example, if a phone has multiple lines, the 150 call limit applies to all lines
combined.
You can sort the Call History list by all lines, each line, or by missed calls. You can sort the call history
for each line by selecting the individual line for which you want to see the call history, or select the All
Calls softkey to see the merged history for all lines. You can also dial a number directly from the Call
History list.
A (plus) + symbol on entries in call history, redial, or call directory indicates that your phone is set up
to list international calls. For more information, see your system administrator.

Call Park
Call Park allows you to use your phone to park (temporarily store) a call, which you can then retrieve
from another phone (for example, a phone at a co-worker’s desk or in a conference room).
There are two ways you can park a call:
• Park—Allows you to park an active call that you answered on your phone, and retrieve it using
another phone in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager system.
Cisco Unified IP Phone 8961, 9951, and 9971 User Guide for Cisco Unified Communications Manager 7.1(3) (SIP)
71
• Directed Call Park—Allows you to park and retrieve an active call in two different ways:
– Assisted Directed Call Park—Allows you to park an active call by pressing a feature button,
which your system administrator sets up as a speed dial line.
With this type of directed call, you can monitor the status of the line (in-use, idle, or Do Not
Disturb) using Line Status indicators.
– Manual Directed Call Park—Allows you to park an active call by transferring it to a Directed
Call number, which your system administrator sets up.
You retrieve the call at another phone by dialing a park retrieval prefix number (provided by
your system administrator), then dialing the Directed Call number you used to park the call.
Your system administrator sets up either the Directed Call Park or Park feature on your phone, but
not both.

Call Pickup
Call Pickup allows you to answer a call that is ringing on a co-worker’s phone by redirecting the call
to your phone.
You might use Call Pickup if you share call-handling tasks with co-workers.
There are three ways you can pick up a call:
• Pickup—Allows you to answer a call that is ringing on another phone within your call pickup
group.
If multiple calls are available for pick up, your phone picks up the oldest call first (the call that
has been ringing for the longest time).
• Group Pickup—Allows you to answer a call on a phone that is outside your call pickup group by:
– Using a group pickup number (provided by your system administrator).
– Dialing the ringing phone’s number.
• Other Pickup—Allows you to answer a call that is ringing on another phone within in your call
pickup group or in an associated call pickup group.
Your system administrator sets up the call pickup group you are in, and the call pickup softkeys
depending on your call-handling needs and work environment.
You can also monitor and pick up ringing calls using Line Status indicators if your system
administrator has set up Line Status indicators on speed-dial buttons for you. Line Status indicators
allow you to see if a line associated with a speed-dial button is idle, in-use, in a Do Not Disturb state,
or ringing.

Bluetooth Headsets
(For Cisco Unified IP Phone 9951 and 9971 only.)
When using Bluetooth headsets with your phone, these conditions apply:
• You may add and connect up to five Bluetooth headsets to your phone, but the last Bluetooth
headset connected becomes the default for use with the phone.
Cisco Unified IP Phone 8961, 9951, and 9971 User Guide for Cisco Unified Communications Manager 7.1(3) (SIP)
111
• Once a Bluetooth headset is connected, turning it off/on will reconnect it to the phone. Please read
the below mentioned instructions before using the Bluetooth headset.
– If you have both, a Bluetooth headset and an analog headset attached to the phone, only one
type of headset will work at any given time. Using a USB headset will disable both, the
Bluetooth and analog headset.
– Enable the Bluetooth headset to disable the analog headset.
– Disable the Bluetooth headset to enable the analog headset
– Unplug the USB headset and then enable wither the Bluetooth headset or analog headset.
• It is recommended that you use your Bluetooth headset within 10 ft. of the phone, although
Bluetooth coverage extends to about 30 ft. from the phone.
• Your phone supports the Bluetooth Headset Profile. From your Bluetooth headset, you can
perform these functions:
– Answer a call
– End a call
– Change the headset volume for a call
For more information, see the documentation from your Bluetooth headset manufacturer.
Bluetooth Wireless Headset Performance
The Cisco Unified IP Phone 9951 and 9971 support Bluetooth Class 2 technology when the headsets
support Bluetooth. Bluetooth enables low bandwidth wireless connections within a range of 30 feet
(10 meters). The best performance is in the 3 to 6 feet (1 to 2 meter) range. You can connect up to five
headsets, but only the last one connected is used as the default.
There can be potential interference issues; therefore, it is recommended that you:
• Reduce the proximity of other 802.11b/g devices, Bluetooth devices, microwave ovens, and large
metal objects.
• Use the Cisco Unified IP Phone on the same side of the body as the Bluetooth-enabled headset.
For a Bluetooth wireless headset to work, it does not need to be within direct line-of-sight of the phone,
but some barriers, such as walls or doors, and interference from other electronic devices, could affect
the connection.

Product Safety, Security, Accessibility, and Related
Information
Safety and Performance Information
Power outages and other devices can affect your Cisco Unified IP Phone.
Power Outage
Your accessibility to emergency service through the phone is dependent on the phone being powered.
If there is an interruption in the power supply, Service and Emergency Calling Service dialing will not
function until power is restored. In the case of a power failure or disruption, you may need to reset or
reconfigure equipment before using the Service or Emergency Calling Service dialing.
External Devices
Cisco recommends using good quality external devices (such as headsets) that are shielded against
unwanted radio frequency (RF) and audio frequency (AF) signals.
Depending on the quality of these devices and their proximity to other devices such as mobile phones
or two-way radios, some audio noise may still occur. In these cases, Cisco recommends that you take
one or more of these actions:
• Move the external device away from the source of the RF or AF signals.
• Route the external device cables away from the source of the RF or AF signals.
• Use shielded cables for the external device, or use cables with a better shield and connector.
• Shorten the length of the external device cable.
• Apply ferrites or other such devices on the cables for the external device.
Cisco cannot guarantee the performance of the system because Cisco has no control over the quality
of external devices, cables, and connectors. The system will perform adequately when suitable devices
are attached using good quality cables and connectors.
Caution
In European Union countries, use only external speakers, microphones, and headsets that
are fully compliant with the EMC Directive [89/336/EC].

Bluetooth Wireless Headsets Performance
The Cisco Unified IP Phone 9951 and 9971 support Bluetooth Class 2 technology when the headsets
support Bluetooth. Bluetooth enables low bandwidth wireless connections within a range of 30 feet
(10 meters). The best performance is in the 3 to 6 feet (1 to 2 meter) range. You can connect up to five
headsets, but only the last one connected is used as the default.
There can be potential interference issues; therefore, it is recommended that you:
• Reduce the proximity of other 802.11b/g devices, Bluetooth devices, microwave ovens, and large
metal objects.
• Use the Cisco Unified IP Phone on the same side of the body as the Bluetooth-enabled headset.
For a Bluetooth wireless headset to work, it does not need to be within direct line-of-sight of the phone,
but some barriers, such as walls or doors, and interference from other electronic devices, could affect
the connection.
