Configuring Network Settings on the Cisco
Unified IP Phone
The Cisco Unified IP Phone includes many configurable network and device settings that you may need
to modify before the phone is functional for your users. You can view these settings, and change many
of them, through the Network Configuration menu on the phone.

Displaying the Network Configuration Menu
To display the Network Configuration menu, perform the following steps.
Note
You can control whether a phone has access to the Settings menu or to options on this menu by using the
Settings Access field in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Phone
Configuration window. The Settings Access field accepts these values:
•
Enabled—Allows access to the Settings menu.
•
Disabled—Prevents access to the Settings menu. Also prevents handset, speaker, and headset from
being saved (but they can be changed temporarily).
•
Restricted—Prevents access to all options in the Settings menu except Contrast and Ring Type.
Allows volume changes to be saved.
If you cannot access an option on the Settings menu, check the Settings Access field. For more
information, see Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Guide.

Unlocking and Locking Options
Configuration options that can be changed from a phone are locked by default to prevent users from
making changes that could affect the operation of a phone. You must unlock these options before you
can change them.
When options are inaccessible for modification, a locked padlock icon
appears on the
configuration menus. When options are unlocked and accessible for modification, an unlocked padlock
icon
appears on these menus.
To unlock or lock options, press **#. This action either locks or unlocks the options, depending on the
previous state.
Make sure to lock options after you have made your changes.
Caution
Do not press **# to unlock options and then immediately press **# again to lock options. The phone
will interpret this sequence as **#**, which will reset the phone. To lock options after unlocking them,
wait at least 10 seconds before you press **# again.
