Cisco Phone Setup 7841

Follow these instructions after 8:30am on your migration date to assemble and configure your Cisco model 7841 phone. If you do not have a desktop PC and plan to plug your new phone directly into an active but unused LAN connection, begin at Step 6a.

Before starting this process, please make sure you have obtained the phone setup PIN from your department representative. This PIN was provided in the migration confirmation email from LTS.

Note: In some cases, you may need to access your network wall jack. For your safety, do not attempt to move heavy furnishings or equipment. LTS will make arrangements for a moving team to be in the building on the morning of the move. If you cannot easily access the jack,contact your department representative to have the moving team stop by your office. If you need assistance with the phone setup process itself on your scheduled migration date, please contact your department representative to request assistance from a technician. If you are setting up your phone after the close of business on your migration date, please contact the Help Desk at 610-758-4357 to request a visit from a technician. The technician must have clear access to your jack prior to the visit.

Configure the phone

Before starting this process, please make sure you have obtained the phone setup PIN from your department representative. This PIN was provided in the migration confirmation email from LTS.

When first plugged in, the phone will go through a series of automatic restarts while it detects the network and registers itself.  This process can take up to 7 minutes.  When it's finished, the screen of your phone will display a temporary 4-digit extension.

  • Dial extension 29999 to begin the configuration process.
  • When prompted for your self-provisioning identification number, enter your extension (8XXXX), then the # key.
  • When prompted for your pin or authentication code, enter the phone setup PIN (available from your department representative).
  • You will hear a message "This device will now start with a new extension. Goodbye."
  • Phone will reboot automatically with new configuration.

  • Dial 84444.
  • When the system answers, enter the voice mail setup PIN (provided by your department representative).
