Mute Your Call

While you are on a call, you can mute the audio, so that you can hear the other person, but they cannot hear you.

If you have a Cisco IP Phone 8845 or 8865, when you mute your audio, your camera continues to transmit video.


     
Step 1    Press Mute .    
Step 2    Press Mute again to turn mute off.    

Adjust the Phone Ringer Volume

If your phone ringer is too loud or too soft when you have an incoming call, you can change the ringer volume. When you change the ringer volume, it does not affect the volume of the sound that you hear when you are on a call.

Choose one of the following options to adjust the ringer volume when the phone rings:
  • Cisco IP Phone 7800 Series—Press Volume up or down.    
  • Cisco IP Phone 8800 Series—Press Volume right or left.    

Change the Ringtone

You can change the sound that your phone uses for incoming calls.


        
Step 1    Press Applications .
Step 2    Select Settings > Ringtone.

Step 5    Press Set and Apply to save a selection.    

Adjust the Volume During a Call

If the sound in your handset, headset, or speakerphone is too loud or too soft, you can change the volume while you are listening to the other person. When you change the volume during a call, the change only affects the speaker you're using at the time. For example, if you adjust the volume while you're using a headset, the handset volume doesn't change.

Choose one of the following options to adjust the volume while you are on a call:
  • Cisco IP Phone 7800 Series—Press Volume up or down.    
  • Cisco IP Phone 8800 Series—Press Volume right or left.    

Adjust the Headset Feedback

   

When you use a headset, you can hear your own voice in the earpiece, which is called headset sidetone or headset feedback. You can control the amount of headset sidetone on your phone.

    

       
Step 1    Press Applications .     
Step 2    Select Settings > Headset sidetone.    
Step 3    Select a setting.    
Step 4    Press Back .
