2.5mm Audio Connector on Phone
Your conference phone has a 2.5mm audio connector to connect to a mobile
phone or to a computer calling application. You connect a mobile phone or
computer calling application so you can use the conference phone speaker to
stream two-way audio from the mobile phone or computer calling application
for hands-free conversations. When you connect mobile or computer audio to
your conference phone, all participants in a call or conference call (including
those connected through a mobile phone or computer calling application) can
hear and speak to each other.
The 2.5mm audio connector is located on the right side of your conference
phone, behind a door you flip open.
The following figure shows the 2.5mm audio connector on the side of the
conference phone. The 2.5mm audio connector has a mobile phone icon above
it.

available. For video conferences, you only have access to the Info, End Call,
Content, and Back soft keys. For information on how to use these soft keys and
manage conferences, see Managing Conferences on page 3-11.
Controlling Volume and Muting Calls When Your Phone is Connected to a
Polycom HDX System
When your phone is connected to a Polycom HDX system, all audio-only calls
and conferences use your phone’s speaker. Any video calls (or conference calls
that connect to at least one video endpoint) use the Polycom HDX system’s
speaker. As well, your phone (and attached external microphone, if
applicable) act as the microphone for all calls.
To adjust the volume of calls and to mute the near site, see Adjusting the
Speaker and Ringer Volume on page 2-14 and Muting the Microphone on page
3-7.
Note
When you press the Mute button on the phone, or on any extended microphone or
Polycom HDX Microphone Array, you mute the microphone on the phone and all
extended microphones and Polycom HDX Microphone Arrays connected to your
phone and to the Polycom HDX system. A Mute icon displays on both the phone
and Polycom HDX system screens. (You will not mute audio from other sources,
such as a computer, VCR, or DVD player.)
You can also control the volume and mute microphones (including your phone’s
microphones) using the Polycom HDX system’s remote control or keypad. For more
information, see the user’s guide for your Polycom HDX system at
www.polycom.com/videodocumentation.

Your phone can handle up to eight audio-only call appearances, or seven
audio-only appearances (on hold) and one video call appearance.
For more information on multiple call appearances, see Handling Multiple

Using the Advanced Features of Your Phone
Handling Computer or Mobile Audio When Your Phone is Connected to a
Polycom HDX System
When your phone is connected to a Polycom HDX system, your phone handles
computer or mobile audio just like an audio-only call.
You handle computer or mobile audio when your phone is connected to a
Polycom HDX system in the same way you handle computer or mobile audio
when your phone operates as a standalone system (see Using Computer or
Mobile Audio with the Conference Phone on page 4-1). Except, the video soft
keys display instead.
Handling Multiple Call Appearances
Your system administrator can set up your phone to have one or more call
appearances. If your phone is set up to have multiple call appearances, your
phone screen can display information for multiple calls, and you can handle
active and held calls at the same time. Your phone can handle a maximum of
eight different calls, or eight “appearances,” at one time.
The following figure shows what the phone screen looks like with multiple
appearances set up. The figure shows an active call with extension 1955, and a
call on hold with extension 1951.
If three or more calls are taking place, the phone displays a counter at the top
left of the screen. For example, in the following figure, “1/3” indicates that the
call to John is the first one out of a total of three. To select the other two calls,
press the Up or Down scroll keys.

Using Buddy Lists
Note
Monitoring the status (presence) of contacts in a buddy list is an optional feature
that your system administrator enables. Your system may not support it. For more
information, contact your system administrator.
A buddy list is a list of users/devices whose status, or “presence,” you can
monitor. Users update their presence setting (for example, Be right back, Out
to lunch, or Busy), and you can view their status in real time from your phone’s
Buddy Status screen. If you like, you can block others from monitoring your
status.
Your phone can “watch” the status of up to eight other phones. These phones
form your “Buddy List.” Your phone can be monitored by up to eight other
phones.
If your phone is configured to work with Microsoft Office Live
Communications Server 2005, the behavior of presence settings and buddy
lists is different. For more information, see Integrating With Microsoft Office
Live Communications Server 2005 on page 4-25, or contact your system
administrator.
