My handset is not working
The first thing we advise in this case is to test the handset in another port to check if the problem is with the port or the handset itself. If you plug the phone in to an active port and it works, double check the original port that the phone was in by plugging a working phone into it. If the problem turns out to be the handset contact your account manager or the sales department to order a replacement – firstname.lastname@example.org However, if the problem is the port please contact our support team to arrange an engineer visit to test/fix the port. You can contact support by emailing email@example.com or call 01 2541800 and select option 3 which will log a ticket for you.
I can make outbound calls but cannot receive inbound or internal calls
Ensure that the ‘Do Not Disturb’ feature has not been activated on your phone. This is usually indicated by a solid red light or an icon of a handset with a line going through it. If it’s activated press the ‘DND’ button to deactivate it. If the problem persists contact our support team on firstname.lastname@example.org or cal 01 2541800 and select option 3.
Calls cut off after certain time, can I increase the duration?
Some systems are configured with a call duration which is generally selected by the customer at the time of installation. This is for a couple of reasons, usually for cost control & fraud prevention purposes as well as to avoid lines being left accidentally open and clogging up capacity. This can be increased or reduced if you wish by contacting our support team. Email email@example.com or call the helpdesk on 01 254100 and select option 3.
I can’t make International calls to certain countries
Certain high fraud destinations are blocked by default on the system. To dial these destinations requires a password. This prevents hackers from dialing these destinations should they gain access to your system. If your company regularly dials a blocked destination and does not want to use a password please email our support team with your request stating you understand the risk involved and would like that destination unblocked. (Please state the destination(s)).
There is a voicemail light on my phone but no message
This is usually a ‘call back’ request. For example if you were away from your desk and a colleague was calling you, they can press certain button to request that you call them back. This light is a notification. If the problem persists contact our support team on firstname.lastname@example.org or cal 01 2541800 and select option 3.
