The Polycom VVX300: Where did the ghost calls come from?

Q: We are using Polycom’s VVX300 phones. We have gotten lots of ghost calls and I wonder where those calls came from?

Grandstream DP750 Ringing Stopped Working. What Can I Do?

Q: I have a handful of Grandstream DP750 with headsets at different customer sites and they all experience similar inbound call issues. The most common is that the phones will work fine inbound and outbound after a reboot but within a few minutes inbound ringing stops working but outbound calls work fine. Please advise.

A: Try factory reset the phone after the firmware upgrade and re-register the handset to the base station. It should solve your issues. Here is the DP750/DP720 Firmware Release Note for your reference: http://firmware.grandstream.com/Release_Note_DP750_DP720_1.0.2.16.pdf

How Do I Reboot Grandstream GXP2130?

Q: Is there a way to reboot Grandstream GXP2130 without physically unplugging them? When we have a power outage, some of the phones don’t reconnect properly. The incoming and outgoing calls can no longer work. The phones need to be rebooted for the entire system to work.

A: You would have to reboot the switch then (hard reboot). On the phone display press the right arrow on the navigation pad where on the LCD display you will see the two dots “..” Then there should be an option to “Reboot”.

Polycom VVX410 Outbound Calls Suffer From a High Degree of Post Dial Delay

VVX 410Q: We ordered 5 new VVX 410 Phones. They all have the new MAC structure. We provisioned them for our client to an on-prem asterisk server plus 2 other hosted servers (asterisk and broadsoft). In all cases, the phones are running 4.1.7 FW. Inbound calls work splendidly but outbound calls suffer from a high degree of Post Dial Delay. It connects eventually and the next outbound call works immediately. Then we reboot the phone to test it, the same issue happens again on all platforms. Has anyone seen this issue?

A: I would advise you to update the firmware from 4.1.7 to 5.3.3 since there may be some instability issues with older firmware. If certain phones are doing this then I would ping those IP’s on the network to see if there are latency issues with the phones.

How Do I Connect Multiple Agents to the Same Softphone?

Q: We currently use softphones but collectors must share headsets when verifying a payment. Is there a splitter or application you recommend that allows multiple agents to connect to the same softphone? we currently use Plantronics headphones with USB port. Do you have any possible solutions?

A: Unfortunately, there is no such splitter. The problem isn’t that there are none manufactured, it’s with the computer itself. PC’s only allow one audio path and device.
I would suggest purchasing the Jabra LINK 265.

Q: Does the connection work with only certain types of headsets? Will they work with USB? We also have some old Plantronics headsets with regular phone jacks if that works? Please advise. Thanks.

A: It is compatible with other headsets that have QD ends.

how-to-handle-multiple-incoming-calls-on-the-grandstream-gxp2140

We all know that some work days are busier than others, and when it comes to workers who spend most of their day on the phone, having the advantages of VoIP can be the difference between staying calm and collected, and falling into a rage blackout at your desk.

rage animated GIF

When those busy days happen, it usually means that you are receiving multiple calls at once. The more help you can get from your actual phone, the better  you will be at managing the constant stream of calls coming your way.

For this blog, we are going to use the Grandstream GXP2140 as an example to show how to juggle multiple calls so that you can keep your customers happy, and finish your work day with your sanity intact.

gxp2140

When you are on a call, and another call is coming in, the first thing that the GXP2140 will do to let you know is send a Call Waiting Tone that only you will be able to hear in your headset or handset.

Along with this, the next available line on your phone will begin to flash Red. These two notifications will alert you and prompt  you to handle this next incoming call.

After you ask your current caller to be placed on hold, there will be no need to actually hit the hold button. All you have to do is press the corresponding line key. This will automatically place your current call on hold and pick up your incoming call.

If your day is turning out to be incredibly busy, and you keep receiving incoming calls, you can repeat this procedure up to as many available lines as you have on your phone.

If you need to toggle between calls, all you need to do is press the LINE key. This will continue to place your callers on hold as needed. If you are finished with a call, you can simply switch back to another call on hold and that line will take care of itself on its own; becoming available for the next customer who is calling in.

This may take a little bit of practice to become lightning fast, but once you have this down systematically, there will be nothing that can stop your exceptional customer service. Not only will this take your multitasking to new heights, it will also keep your stress level below your boiling point!

How Do I Unlock Polycom VVX410 Phones?

VVX 410Q: A couple of years ago I bought some Polycom VVX410 phones from VoIP Supply. I need to provision them onto a server that requires them to be unlocked. Can I please have some help doing that?

A: To unlock the phones (access the advanced settings menu) enter “456”. This should be the default password. Or you can also go into the web interface of the phones and disable the phone lock feature. Under the “Settings” tab you will see “Phone Lock”. From there you can customize the lock feature.
