Cisco Unified IP Phone Menus
The Cisco Unified IP Phone includes the following configuration menus:
Network Configuration: Provides options for viewing and
making a variety of network settings.
Device Configuration: Provides access to sub-menus from
which you can view a variety of non network-related settings.
Security Configuration: Provides options for displaying and
modifying security settings.
Before you can change option settings on the Network Configuration menu, you must unlock options for editing.
You can control whether a phone user has access to phone settings by using the Settings Access field in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration Phone Configuration window.
Display Settings Menu
To display a 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.
Restricted—Allows access to the User Preferences menu and allows volume changes to be saved. Prevents access to other options on the Settings menu.
If you cannot access an option on the Settings menu, check the Settings Access field.
Step 1 Press Settings to access the Settings menu.
Step 2 Perform one of these actions to display the desired menu:
Use the Navigation pad to select the desired menu and then press the Select.
Use the keypad on the phone to enter the number that corresponds to the menu.
Step 3 To display a submenu, repeat Step 2.
Step 4 To exit a menu, press Exit.
Unlock and Lock 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.
Note If a Settings Menu password has been provisioned, SIP Phones present an “Enter password” prompt after you enter **#.
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 interprets this sequence as **#**, which resets the phone. To lock options after unlocking them, wait at least 10 seconds before you press **# again.
Value Input Guidelines
When you edit the value of an option setting, follow these guidelines:
Use the keys on the keypad to enter numbers and letters.
To enter letters by using the keypad, use a corresponding number key. Press the key one or more times to display a particular letter. For example, press the 2 key once for “a,” twice quickly for “b,” and three times quickly for “c.” After you pause, the cursor automatically advances to allow you to enter the next letter.
To enter a period (for example, in an IP address under IPv4 Configurations), press the . (period) softkey or press * on the keypad.
To enter a colon (for example, in an IP address under IPv6 Configurations), press the : (colon) softkey or press * on the keypad.
Press the << softkey if you make a mistake. This softkey deletes the character to the left of the cursor.
Press Cancel before pressing the Save softkey to discard any changes that you have made.
Note The Cisco Unified IP Phone provides several methods that you can use to reset or restore option settings, if necessary.
