Call Holding Beep

Is there a way to enable an audible beep when a call is holding on the line? Particluarly with a shared line appearance. I am using a 7931 phone and a 2811 ISR. I can find ways to put in too much information when searching for this kind of information and am hoping someone remembers a link to where they did this.

Much thanks,

Jon

Re: Call Holding Beep

Hi Jon,

This feature is available :)

On-Hold Indicator

On-hold indicator is an optional feature that generates a ring burst on idle IP phones that have placed a call on hold. An option is available to generate call-waiting beeps for occupied phones that have placed calls on hold. This feature is disabled by default.

LED color display for hold state, also known as I-Hold, is supported in Cisco Unified CME 4.0(2) and later versions. The I-Hold feature provides a visual indicator for distinguishing a local hold from a remote hold on shared lines on supported phones, such as the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7931G. This feature requires no additional configuration.

SCCP: Enabling On-Hold Indicator

The Call Hold feature is available by default. To define an audible indicator as a reminder that a call is waiting on hold, perform the following steps.

SUMMARY STEPS

1. enable

2. configure terminal

3. ephone-dn dn-tag [dual-line]

4. hold-alert timeout {idle | originator | shared}

5. end

From this good doc;
