Simple question...  I cant try because I dont have the devices..


If we have a Cisco phone with 6 or 8 button line,  is it possible to have a different ringtone for each line when there is an incoming call


And What about a 7915 or 7916, is it possible to have a different ringtone for each line when there is an incoming call


thanks

Well, yes but you're limited to eight different ringtones so you wouldn't have enough unique values to cover a sidecar. The distinctive ringing per-line doesn't seem to use the full ringlist file but only the basic chirp1-8 files.


Editorial comment: I question whether a user could actually memorize >8 unique ringtone combinations to know what it means anyways. This is a perfect example of: look at the phone before blindly picking up the receiver.

It's a teachers room with many teachers, each teacher will have a different ring.. so this scenario is good for us
