On the polycom soundpoint ip 650 six line phone:

Say I have 4 lines on hold, is there way to tell who I put on hold.

I cannot see the caller ID of the other lines, only the last line I placed
on hold.

Thanks,

  • Thanks for the response.

    What you described is for the CLI.

    I am asking is there a way on the phone itself or is there a phone that does have this capability.

    Thanks,

  • You might be able to use hints/buddies.

  • I basically understand what you’re saying but I am a little confused.

    Are you saying..
    Reg.1.lineKeys=”1″
    Then on asterisk allow 4 calls per sip extension

    Thanks,

  • No, this is all done through the phone provisioning. You are correct,
    you would set reg.1.lineKeys=”1″ but then set reg.1.callsPerLineKey=”6″
    or 4 or whatever you want. In the default phone1.cfg callsPerLineKey
    immediately follows the lineKeys setting.

  • Damn, I knew it was there but I couldn’t find it for some reason so I doubted myself of its existence.

    Thanks. Trying it now.

  • Yes, her extension is now on one line key, but this does not mean she
    cannot make a new call if she is already on a line. If she is on a call
    and needs to call someone else she would put the first call on hold,
    then the “New Call” soft key will appear. You can press that to get
    dialtone and place an outgoing call.

    This setup breaks (at least, I haven’t found a way around it) if set up
    additional registrations on the other line keys. Lets say you have
    extension 100 on the first line key with 6 calls per key, and extension
    101 on the second key with 6 calls per key. You have two incoming calls
    on extension 100 and you wish to make a call. If you press the “New
    Call” soft key it gives you dialtone on extension 101 instead of on 100.
    I have not figured out how to fix this yet, but I almost never have
    phones that are registered with more than one extension (except mine of
    course).
