Issue Number
Description of Feature/Enhancement
ENH05218
Incoming Call Interrupts Dialing Feature
A User and Administrator can now configure whether or not an incoming call
interrupts an outgoing call that is dialing. A new parameter has been added
(“incoming call interrupts dialing”) to control this feature.
When you enable this parameter (1 = enable), an incoming call interrupts the
outgoing call during dialing and allows the phone to ring for the user to answer the
incoming call. This was the existing default behaviour in previous releases, and is
also the behaviour of this parameter in 2.0.2 if it is enabled.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you disable this parameter, the behaviour of the phone has
changed in 2.0.2. In 2.0.2, this feature performs as follows if disabled:
When you disable the “incoming call interrupts dialing” parameter (0 = disable),
which is the default, the phone does not interrupt the outgoing call during dialing and
instead rings the incoming call on another free line (or sends busy signal if all
remaining lines are busy). You have a choice to ignore the incoming call, or answer
the incoming call on another line, via the Ignore and Answer softkeys that display. If
you choose to answer the incoming call, you can answer the call, finish the call, and
then hang up. You can still go back to the original outgoing call and finish dialing out.
Notes:
1. On a 53i, you must use the down arrow key to ignore the call. To answer the call
you must press the line key where the call is coming in.
2. For all models, if you disable this parameter (0=disable), and the phone receives
an incoming call while you are dialing an outgoing call, you can pick up the call and
perform transfer or conference as required.
An Administrator can set this parameter using the configuration files (incoming call
interrupts dialing) or the Aastra Web UI (Incoming Call Interrupts Dialing) at
Basic Settings->Preferences->General). A User can set this parameter using only
the Aastra Web UI.
Incoming Call Interrupts Dialing (in Web UI) (Default is disabled.)

Issue Number
Description of Feature/Enhancement
DEF04929
Pressing a speeddial key while on an active call no longer places that call on hold.
When there is an active call, the speeddial key now sends DTMF digits through the
active voice path. For example, if you are on an active call, and a speeddial key is
configured on a different line to access your voicemail, you must put the active call
on hold and then press the speeddial key to access your voicemail on the other line.
DEF05224
The “Action URI Registered” is now executed on the first successful registration of
each unique line configured on the phone.
DEF05722
Increased the length of the stuttered dial tone used to indicate message waiting.
DEF05964
Usernames containing dots (“.”) are now supported.
ENH05637
The IP phones no longer support the alpha character in the password.
Non-numeric passwords are ignored in release 2.0.2 and all subsequent releases.
The default password is used instead.
ENH06153
Allow Barge In Feature
A User and Administrator can now configure a “barge-in” feature on the phone.
A new parameter has been added (“sip intercom allow barge in”) which controls
how the phone handles an incoming intercom call when an active call is in progress.
When you enable this parameter (1 = enable), which is the default value, an
incoming intercom call takes precedence over any active call, by placing the active
call on hold and automatically answering the intercom call. When you disable this
parameter (0 = disable), and there is an active call, the phone treats an incoming
intercom call like a normal call and plays the call warning tone.
An Administrator can set this parameter using the configuration files (sip intercom
allow barge in) or the Aastra Web UI (Allow Barge In at Basic
Settings->Preferences->Incoming Intercom Settings). A User can set this parameter
using only the Aastra Web UI.
Allow Barge In (in Web UI) (Default is enabled.)

REFER-TO header now uses uppercase characters in escape codes.

ENH06372
Goodbye Cancels Incoming Call Feature
A User and Administrator can now configure the Goodbye key to drop active calls or
ignore incoming calls.
A new parameter has been added (“goodbye cancels incoming call") which
controls the behavior of the goodbye key when the phone is in an active call and a
second call is presented to the phone.
When you enable this parameter (1 = enable), which is the default, the Goodbye
key rejects the incoming call. When you disable this parameter (0 = disable), the
Goodbye key hangs up the existing call.
If you disable this parameter, and the phone receives another call when an active
call is already present, the 57i and 57i CT phones display softkey 1 as “answer” and
softkey 2 as “ignore”. The 53i displays “ignore”. For the 53i, you must use the
DOWN arrow key to ignore the call.
An Administrator can set this parameter using the configuration files (goodbye
cancels incoming call) or the Aastra Web UI (Goodbye Key Cancels Incoming
Call at Basic Setting->Preferences->General). A User can set this parameter using
only the Aastra Web UI.
Goodbye Key Cancels Incoming Call (in Web UI) (Default is enabled.)

53i: This model phone now has extended SPRE support.
Phone Lock Softkey Feature
A user or administrator can now lock a phone using a configured softkey or
programmable key. Locking the phone prevents it from being used or configured.
Once the phone is locked, the user or administrator can enter their password to
unlock the phone.
You can configure a “Lock/Unlock” softkey using the configuration files or the Aastra
Web UI. In the configuration files, you enter “phonelock” for the type of softkey or
programmable key. For example:

In the Aastra Web UI, you can go to the following paths for each phone model and
select “Phone Lock” from the Type options.
53i: Operation->Programmable Keys
55i: Operation->Programmable Keys, Operation->Sofkeys and XML
57i, 57i CT: Operation->Softkeys and XML
Note: This feature is dynamic. When you configure this feature, it takes affect
immediately and displays to the phone LCD.
Once configured, you can press the LOCK softkey to lock the phone. The same
softkey displays UNLOCK. After pressing UNLOCK, a password prompt appears.
You must enter your user or administrator password to unlock the phone.

Speeddial Prefix Feature
A user or administrator can now enter a prefix number for a speeddial softkey or
programmable key.
The normal function of the speeddial option allows you to dial a number quickly by
pressing the softkey or programmable key. This speeddial feature now allows you to
dial a preset string of numbers followed by a “+” when pressing the softkey or
programmable key. You can use this feature for numbers that contain long prefixes.
For example, if you had the following speeddial configuration in the configuration
files:
softkey2
softkey2
softkey2
softkey2
type: speeddial
label: Europe Office
value: 1234567+
line: 2
then, after you press softkey2 on the phone, it dials the prefix number automatically
and pauses for you to enter the remaining phone number using the keypad on the
phone. You can configure the speeddial prefix using the configuration files or the
Aastra Web UI. In the configuration files, you must enter the prefix number, followed
by a “+” in the “SoftkeyN Value” field or “PrgKeyN Value” field. For example:
softkey2 value: 1234567+
prgkey2 value: 123456+
topsoftkey2 value: 123456+
expmod2 key20 value: 456789+
In the Aastra Web UI at the path Operation->Softkeys and XML or
Operation->Programmable Keys, you must select the following:
Type = speeddial
Label = <Enter a label for the Speeddial prefix key>
Value = <Enter a prefix number followed by a “+”>
Line = <Select a line for the speeddial prefix key to use>
When you configure a speeddial prefix key, pressing that key displays the prefix
number on the phone and then pauses for you to enter the remaining phone number
you want to dial.

IP Phone Release Notes 2.0.2
Enhancements/Changes in 2.0.2, Build 1040
Issue Number
Description of Feature/Enhancement
Directed Call Pickup with BLF or BLF-List Feature
A feature has been added to the IP phones that allows an Administrator to configure
Directed Call Pickup with a BLF or BLF List softkey. An optional parameter has also
been added called, “directed call pickup prefix” (in configuration files) or the
“Directed Call Pickup by Prefix” (in Aastra Web UI).
How this feature works when Directed Call Pickup is enabled with BLF or BLF/List:
1. Phone A monitors Phone B via BLF/List.
2. Phone C calls Phone B; Phone B rings.
3. If you press the BLF/List softkey on Phone A, it picks up the ringing
line on Phone B.
4. Phone C connects to Phone A.
How this feature works when Directed Call Pickup is disabled with BLF or BLF/List:
1. Phone A monitors Phone B via BLF/List.
2. Phone C calls Phone B; Phone B rings.
3. If you press the BLF/List softkey on Phone A, it performs a speeddial to Phone B.
4. Phone C and Phone A are ringing Phone B on separate lines (if available).
The optional “directed call pickup prefix” allows you to enter a specific prefix string
(depending on what is available on your server), that the phone automatically dials
when dialing the Directed Call Pickup number. For example, for Broadsoft servers,
you can enter a value of *98 for the “directed call pickup prefix”. When the phone
performs the Directed Call Pickup after pressing a BLF or BLF/List softkey, the
phone pre-pends the *98 value to the designated extension of the BLF or BLF/List
softkey when dialing out.
Notes:
1. The default method for the phone to use is Directed Call Pickup over BLF if the
server provides applicable information. If the Directed Call Pickup over BLF
information is missing in the messages to the server, the Directed Call Pickup by
Prefix method is used if a value for the prefix code exists in the configuration.

New XML Features
CLN05048
AastraIPPhoneTextMenu object now supports the following:
•
•
Turning off automatic numbering of items
Use of bullets when listing items
You turn off automatic numbering of items by adding the attribute “style=none” to the
root tag of the AastraIPPhoneTextMenu object.
For example:
<AastraIPPhoneTextMenu style=”none”>
<Title>Example</Title>
<MenuItem>
<Prompt>Item 1</Prompt>
<URI>10.50.10.49</URI>
</MenuItem>
</AastraIPPhoneTextMenu>
You can use bullets when listing items by adding the attribute “style=radio” to the
root tag of the AastraIPPhoneTextMenu object.
For example:
<AastraIPPhoneTextMenu style=”radio”>
<Title>Example</Title>
<MenuItem>
<Prompt>Item 1</Prompt>
<URI>10.50.10.49</URI>
</MenuItem>
</AastraIPPhoneTextMenu>
XML Get Timeout Feature
The phone implements HTTP GETs as synchronous calls within linemgr. If the far
side accepts the GET connection but never returns a response, it blocks the phone
until it is rebooted.
A timeout has been added to the phone that you can set via the configuration files to
correct this. The timeout parameter is “xml get timeout”. Valid values are 0 (never
time out) to 214748364 seconds. The default is 0.

ENH06057
Fast Reboot using XML Post Feature
A new XML feature has been added that allows an administrator to perform a fast
reboot of the IP phone when required. You use the AastraIPPhoneExecute object
to specify the command “FastReboot” to implement this feature.
For example,
<AastraIPPhoneExecute>
<ExecuteItem URI=“Command:FastReboot”>
</AastraIPPhoneExecute>
Using an XML post, this feature forces a phone to reboot in the idle state. It does not
check for new firmware and only downloads language packs if there is a change in
the supported filenames of the language packs. The phone DOES do a DHCP
lookup on every “fast reboot”. It also only downloads the Directory files if the names
have changed.
Note: Using the Aastra Web UI, you must set the XML push server list from where
the XML http post is being sent.

XML Softkey LED Control Feature
A feature has been added to the IP phones that allows an Administrator to control
the behavior of XML softkey LEDs. You use the AastraIPPhoneExecute object to
implement this feature.
Note: This LED feature is applicable to XML softkeys only (softkeys (top or bottom),
programmable keys, and expansion module softkeys). The softkey must be
configured for XML before you enable this feature.
The following table describes the behaviors you can assign to XML softkeys and the
attribute you enter in the AastraIPPhoneExecute script.
LED Behavior
XML Attribute
on
URI = “Led: <softkey type>= on”/
off
URI = “Led: <softkey type>=off”/
fastFlash
URI = “Led: <softkey type>=fastflash”/
slowFlash
URI = “Led: <softkey type>=slowflash”/
The command for LED control is sent using the XML http post from one of the XML
push server lists. The following example shows an XML LED command in an
AastraIPPhoneExecute script.
<AastraIPPhoneExecute>
<ExecuteItem URI=”Led:
<ExecuteItem URI=”Led:
<ExecuteItem URI=”Led:
<ExecuteItem URI=”Led:
</AastraIPPhoneExecute>
topsoftkey20=on”/>
softkey1=off”/>
prgkey2=fastflash”/>
expmod2 key20=slowflash”/>
Notes:
1. Using the Aastra Web UI, you must set the XML push server list from where the
XML http post is being sent.
2. The LED states specified in the AastraIPPhoneExecute script are not saved
after a reboot.

Incoming Call Interrupts
Dialing
(in Web UI)
Description
Enable or disables how the phone handles incoming calls while the phone
is dialing out.
When you enable this parameter (1 = true), an incoming call interrupts the
outgoing call during dialing and allows the phone to ring for the user to
answer the incoming call.
When you disable this parameter (0 = fales), which is the default, the
phone does not interrupt the outgoing call during dialing and instead rings
the incoming call on another free line (or sends busy signal if all
remaining lines are busy). You have a choice to ignore the incoming call,
or answer the incoming call on another line. If you choose to answer the
incoming call, you can answer the call, finish the call, and then hang up.
You can still go back to the original outgoing call and finish dialing out.
On the 5i Series Phones:
If you disable this parameter (0=false), and the phone receives an
incoming call while you are dialing an outgoing call, you can pick up the
call and perform transfer or conference as required.
Note: After enabling or disabling this feature, it takes affect on the phone
immediately.

Description
Enable or disables how the phone handles incoming intercom calls while
the phone is on an active call.
When you enable this parameter (1 = enable), which is the default value,
an incoming intercom call takes precedence over any active call, by
placing the active call on hold and automatically answering the intercom
call.
When you disable this parameter (0 = disable), and there is an active call,
the phone treats an incoming intercom call like a normal call and plays the
call warning tone.
Note: After enabling or disabling this feature, it takes affect on the phone
immediately.

an active call is already present, the phone displays softkey 1 as
“answer” and softkey 2 as “ignore”. You can press the required softkey
as applicable.
For the 53i:
If you disable this parameter, and the phone receives another call when
an active call is already present, the “ignore” option only displays in the

aastra.cfg, <mac>.cfg
Directed Call Pickup by Prefix
(in Web UI)
Description
Allows you to enter a specific prefix string (depending on what is
available on your server), that the phone automatically dials when
dialing the Directed Call Pickup number.
For example, for Broadsoft servers, you can enter a value of *98 for the
“directed call pickup prefix”. When the phone performs the Directed
Call Pickup after pressing a BLF or BLF/List softkey, the phone
pre-pends the *98 value to the designated extension of the BLF or BLF/
List softkey when dialing out.
Notes:
1. The default method for the phone to use is Directed Call Pickup over
BLF if the server provides applicable information. If the Directed Call
Pickup over BLF information is missing in the messages to the server,
the Directed Call Pickup by Prefix method is used if a value for the prefix
code exists in the configuration.
2. You can define only one prefix at a time for the entire BLF/List.
3. The phone that picks up displays the prefix code + the extension
number (for example, *981234 where prefix key = *98, extension =
1234).
4. Symbol characters are allowed (for example “*”).
