Hi Tarsem,

The 7961G is a 6 button phone that can have 6 Lines terminated. Using Hold/Resume Answer/End Call Softkeys you can use all 6 lines at the same time. You may need to tweak the default Phone Button Template to set all 6 buttons to be used for Lines.(Device > Device Settings > Phone Button

Template)Have a look;

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7961G

It provides six programmable backlit line/feature buttons and four interactive soft keys that guide a user through call features and functions, and audio controls for high-quality duplex speakerphone, handset, and headset. A built-in headset port and an integrated Ethernet switch are standard with the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7961G. The phone also features a best-of-class large, higher-resolution grayscale pixel-based LCD (Figure 2). The display provides features such as date and time, calling party name, calling party number, and digits dialed.

From this good Data Sheet;


An optional 14-button add-on module, the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7914 Expansion Module (part number CP-7914=), provides 14 additional buttons for programming directory numbers or speed dials, or a combination of the two. Up to two expansion modules can be used with the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7961G.

Hope this helps!
