The Cisco Unified IP Phone includes many configurable network settings that you may need to modify before the phone is functional for your users. You can access these settings, and change some of them, through menus on the phone. Display-only settings on the phone are configured in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.
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:
Allows access to the Settings menu.
Prevents access to the Settings menu.
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 Administrator Settings menu, check the Settings Access field.
To display a configuration menu, perform the following steps.
Enter the password and then press Select. The Administrator Settings password is configured in the Local Phone Unlock Password parameter in the Common Phone Profile Configuration on Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration.
Users can access the Administrator Settings without entering a password when the Local Phone Unlock Password parameter is not configured.
Perform one of these actions to display the desired menu:
Use the navigation bar to select the desired menu and then press Select.
Use the keypad on the phone to enter the number that corresponds to the menu.
To apply a password to the phone, perform these steps:
In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, navigate to the Common Phone Profile Configuration window using Device > Device Settings > Common Phone Profile.
Enter a password in the Local Phone Unlock Password option.
Apply the password to the common phone profile that the phone uses.
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), press star (*) on the keypad.
Press the up arrow on the Navigation bar to move the cursor to the left most character, and press the down arrow on the Navigation bar to move the cursor to the right most character.
Press if you make a mistake. This softkey deletes the character to the left of the cursor.
Press Cancel before pressing Save to discard any changes that you have made.
