HI Richard,

Refer to the following link -

"Configuring Settings on the Cisco IP Phone" section.

Under "Network Configuration Menu" scroll down and configure no for "DHCP Enabled" and then configure IP address and subnet mask in the same menu.

Hi Rechard,

By default DHCP is enabled on the IP Phones, hence IP address can not be configured and you are getting that message.

If you further scroll down in the same menu you'll find DHCP option - "DHCP Enabled". configure No for it and then try to configure the IP address.

Hi, when in configuration screen, press **# to unlock - this is reflected by the lock icon opening up. Then you can do config changes as required.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!
