When it comes to using your VoIP Phone at work, it can be very beneficial to know all the ins and outs.  What do I mean by that? I mean that your VoIP phone can do more than just answer calls, and dial calls.

Depending on your job description, there are often things that your VoIP phone can do that can help aid you in your daily work, and sometimes, these things can be hidden!  What do I mean by that? I mean that sometimes a button can do more than what it is labeled for.

In the past I had written a blog talking about all of the things an arrow key can do other than navigate through your phone’s interface.  This blog is

I don’t know about you, but sometime I sit and think about all of the electronic devices that I own, and then I wonder how much more they can actually do other than what I use them for.

I know that there are a lot of people out there like me. People that use their devices for their basic features and never really bother maximizing their potential. And then there are people who learn the technology inside and out, utilizing every single feature that is offered.

When I use the term “electronic device”, of course I mean your tablet, your cell phone, your laptop, and even (spoiler alert) your VoIP deskphone! Based on experience, I know that there are a lot of features that your …

Choices, choices, choices. Everyone loves choices. Can you imagine a world where the only flavor of ice cream was vanilla? Or the only place to go out to eat was McDonald’s? Yeah, no thanks.

Having choices is one of the things that makes life great, it is a privilege, but having choices when it comes to the things we do every day, is an important necessity. For example, your job!

We go to work almost every day, and for most of us, it’s filled with the same tasks. Maybe moving your weekly meetings to different times can erase some monotony, or changing the order of your tasks can maybe help make things up. Anything to keep things fresh! Einstein once said that insanity is doing …

We have to spend a lot of time at work. For some of us, that means traveling or even staying at home to work. For the rest of us, we are typically stuck in an office or cubicle.

Because we spend so much time in our “area”, I think one of the most important things to maintain at work is your comfort level. This can be pretty simple to achieve. Getting new office chair, a rolling mat underneath you, maybe a picture on the wall.

All of these things can make us more comfortable, but I also believe that having the freedom to use your deskphone however you want can not only bring a certain level of comfort, but it also can make things easier …

If you have a desk at work then chances are you have a phone on your desk. The kind of phone that is on your desk probably has a lot to do with what your job position and duties.

If you are working in a call center, then odds are you have an entry level phone that is equipped with just enough to get the job done. If you hold an inside sales position then you might have more of a mid-range phone. Perhaps something with programmable BLF keys or HD voice etc.

When you start to get into a job position that has an executive role, then you might have a use for a more high-end phone. A phone that is packed with features …

Whether you are new to VoIP or have been using VoIP for a while, it is pretty easy to say that you are constantly learning new things. Maybe it’s something that you overlooked or maybe it is just keeping up with the latest technology. Either way, no matter how insignificant or major, you can never know everything there is to know about VoIP.

For this blog, I wanted to go over something that might fall more towards the “insignificant” side of things. Seeing as this is a basic how-to blog, it seems fitting. On top of that, believe it or not, we get a ton of calls here at VoIP Supply asking about this simple feature.

What is it you ask? It’s Do Not Disturb! …

If you are one of the many people who handle an overwhelming amount of incoming calls for a living then you can understand that sometimes what your phone comes with, it’s always enough.

Every now and then we think of how much easier our jobs would be if we just had a little extra help. An example would be having two monitors on your desk instead of one. Another might be having your own stapler instead of having to walk to the printer every time you needed to staple something.

All of these things are nice to have, and sure, they would help make our lives easier. But, the reality is that we can probably still do our daily tasks even without them. And if …

In the past, I have written blogs about the importance of customizing your workplace. One of the best ways to do this is bringing in pictures from home, and even changing the wallpaper on your deskphone!

This process usually falls into the category of “basic” when dealing with most IP phones, and the same goes for the Yealink CP960. The only difference is this is a conference phone, and not like;y to be on your desk!

What I thought was cool is that even though this is a conference phone, and most likely to be used by several different people around the office, it is still fully customizable. Everything from the wallpaper to the ringtone to so much more!

For this blog, we will …

It is hard to imagine a job that doesn’t need a phone. There are an endless amount of different and unique jobs our there, but I’m pretty sure every one of them, one way or another, needs a phone in some capacity of the business.

For this blog, I want to focus on the jobs that are not set in a cushy air conditioned office. Instead, I want to talk about the jobs that need wireless phones, or better yet, wireless VoIP phones.

What is the first job that comes to mind when you think of wireless phones? For me, I immediately thought of a construction job. Because construction can get messy, I would also have to assume that the wireless phones they are using …

It is hard to imagine life without Caller ID. I know I am not alone when I say that I barely know anyone’s actual phone number anymore. Once they are added to my contact list, their name is all that matters.

These days, the same can be applied to your desk phone at work, with the power of VoIP technology, you are able to use your desk phone just like you would use your personal cell phone.

Most of the time, these phones have just about every feature your cell phone has, and in some cases, even more features! I have written past blogs about IP phones having cameras, recording video, and even custom ringtones in the past, so I know the possibilities are basically …
