Do Not Disturb

There is a DND (Do Not Disturb) option on your VoIP phone. When you press the DND softkey, the default settings will forward all unanswered calls to voicemail and you will receive the following notifications:

  • The text, Do Not Disturb, will appear on the 7900 series phone's LCD screen only.
    Important: On the 8900 series phone, there is no text displayed on the LCD screen to warn that the DND is engaged. A request has been submitted to Cisco to correct this error.
  • The LCD on your phone will flash.
  • Your phone will beep.
  • There will NOT be an audible ring.
    Important: Remember to press the DND softkey again to disengage the do not disturb feature and return to the default call setting.
