Silencing ring volume on 7940/7960 phones

Is there an easy way to turn off the ringer (locally or on the CM's) for Cisco 7900 phones?

In CallManager you can go into the line and choose Ring Setting (Phone Idle). You can choose disable, which will present the call on the screen, but the phone will not ring. You can also choose Flash Only, which will present the call on the screen and light the red light, but the phone will not ring.

HTH, Rob.

If you want to completely turn off the ringer, set the ring setting of idle or busy station under line settings to options such as Flash Only or Disable.

Hi Scott,

This can be changed on a line by line basis, have a look;

Device>Phone>Directory Number Configuration

Line Settings for this Device

Display (Internal Caller ID)

External Phone Number Mask

Line Text Label

Message Waiting Lamp Policy

**Ring Setting (Phone Idle) Use System Default, Disable, Flash Only, Ring Once, Ring

**Ring Setting (Phone Active) Use System Default, Disable, Flash Only, Ring Once, Ring

Hope this helps!

Rob

Edit** Rob and Sankar, would you slow down on the typing, my one finger method can't keep up :)
