The phone starts charging.
Step 4 Press down on the top of the phone and look for the "Docking connected!" message on the phone screen and the docked icon in the phone status line. The phone is connected to the desktop charger speaker and microphone for speakerphone operation.
Step 5 Optional—You can also insert a spare battery into the lower slot. The battery LED is red while charging the battery and turns green when the battery is fully charged.
Note You can insert and charge both the phone and a spare battery at the same time, or you can insert and charge them separately.
While charging the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G, you can use the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G web pages to import or export settings. You must connect the desktop charger to your computer with the standard USB A-type to B-type cable. For more information, see "USB Cables" section.
To remove the phone from the desktop charger, tilt the phone forward about 30 degrees, then remove it from the compartment. Proper removal insures that the connectors will work reliably.
Note If you have a desktop charger, you do not need a phone power supply to charge your phone.

Step 2 Put the two loops at the ends of the cable in the C-ring.
Step 3 Insert the C-ring in the slot on the back of the phone.
Step 4 Using the combination lock, fasten the two ends of the C-ring together.
The phone is now secure.
In addition, you can secure the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G Desktop Charger using a laptop cable lock. The lock connects to the security slot on the side of the desktop charger and the cable can be secured to a desktop. Figure 4 shows where to insert the lock.
The security slot can accommodate a lock up to 20 mm. Compatible laptop cable locks include the Kensington® laptop cable lock and other manufacturer's cable locks that fit into the security slot on the left side of the desktop charger.
Note Cisco does not supply a laptop cable lock; you must purchase a cable lock from your local electronics supply source.
Figure 4 Lock Set for Phone
The Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G requires a 2.5 mm, 3-band / 4 conductor plug headset or ear bud. The audio portion of a headset must sound good to the user and to the party on the far end. Sound is subjective and Cisco cannot guarantee the performance of any headsets, but some of the headsets on the site listed below have been reported to perform well on Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phones.
It is the customer's responsibility to test this equipment in their own environment to determine suitable performance.
For information about headsets, see:
Carry cases make it easy to keep the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G with you and provide some protection for the phone. These two types of carry cases are available for the phone.
In addition, a shoulder strap for use with the leather carry case is available. See the "Shoulder Strap for Carry Case" section.
Holster Carry Case
The holster carry case, shown in Figure 5, is a hard plastic case that holds the phone. The holster case has a clip on the back that rotates 180 degrees. Use the clip to secure the phone to a belt or pocket.

Manufacturing—Heavy-duty cover cases protect phones from dust, electro-static discharge (ESD), and provide drop protection.
Retail and Service—Cover cases keep the phone free from moisture, hair, and dust, and protect against hard impacts from dropping a phone.
Note You can invalidate the one-year hardware warranty by not adequately protecting your phone from moisture, contaminants, or hard impacts caused by dropping the phone.

Guidelines for Using Accessories and the Phone
Follow these guidelines when using accessories and your Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G:
•Use only chargers, batteries, and accessories that are approved by the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G manufacturer. Use of unapproved chargers, batteries, and accessories might be dangerous, and will invalidate the warranty on your phone.
•Do not adhere a clip to the back of the phone or insert a clip between the phone and battery cover because it can damage the battery.
•Use a protective cover case to shield the phone from moisture, dust, hair, grease, and other contaminants that might get on your hands. For example, in Healthcare environments, where phones must be cleaned with sterilizing wipes, you must use a protective cover case to prevent moisture damage to the phone.
•Use a protective cover case in environments where the phone might be bumped or dropped, such as manufacturing or warehouse environments.
•When disconnecting the power cord of any accessory, grasp and pull the plug. Do not pull the cord.
•Keep accessories out of reach of young children.
•Clean the phone only with a soft dry cloth. Do not use moist wipes or cleaning powders that might damage the phone.
Note Using unapproved accessories, not protecting the phone from moisture, contaminants, and hard impacts can invalidate the one-year hardware warranty on the phone.
