Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone Operations
Users need to know that their
Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone operates more like a cell phone than like their
desktop phone. Small wireless phones with an antenna allow users to move around
a facility while staying connected to a call. These phones, like cell phones,
can approach the edge of the RF signal range and experience static or poor
voice quality. At times, the user might encounter areas where there is no
signal and lose the call entirely. The following is a list of calling locations
and situations in which wireless phones might experience audio problems:
Stairwells, elevators, rooms with metal equipment such as file
cabinets, or heavy machinery
Break rooms with microwave ovens, or labs with equipment that emits
RF signals within the same ranges
Conference rooms or other congested areas where many people are
using wireless devices
Parking garages and outdoor areas where access points are not
located or are out of range
This product is not a medical device and may use an unlicensed
frequency band that is susceptible to interference from other devices or
Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone has many of the same phone features as the
IP phone desktop models, such as Mute, access to voice messaging, and
directories. The phone has a limited number of buttons because of its size. As
a consequence, the wireless IP phone differs from the desktop IP phone as follows:
No line buttons: You must enter the phone number from the keypad and
Send. You can press the Phone icon from the
main screen to use other lines on your phone.
Only two softkeys: You must press the

When disconnecting the power cord of any accessory, grasp and pull
the plug. Do not pull the cord.
