Re: Headset & handset use for IP phone

Hello Andersson,

Headset and handset can't be used simultaneously on 6921. I have just tested it in my lab.

In fact I did also test it with a 7971 and I got the same result: either you speak/listen through the handset or you speak/listen through the headset.

The combinations that work are:

* Speak/listen through the speaker and headset simultaneously

* Speak/listen through the speaker and handset simultaneously

I believe this is true for every model. Did you find any example where you could use headset and handset simultaneously? Please let me know the phone model so I can test it in my lab as well.

I hope it helps,

German

Re: Headset & handset use for IP phone

Handset/Headset Monitor is not available for 69xx/89xx/99xx phones in the product specific configuration. That parameter was introduced to have the ability disable the default behavior on third generation phones as some consider this a security risk. That default behavior was consistent with the old hardware where this was as per design.

As per specification 89xx/99xx phones have only one active path for the audio so this does not pose as a problem, as German tested I'm assuming this also applies to 69xx. Though if you want to have this back as a feature that you can again have audio on both, you would may want to talk to the account team to have this implemented.
