Polycom Will Not Make Outbound Calls

Hi all,

 

I am new at my workplace we have a Polycom Nortel Soundstation 2 NTAB4213. Here's what we've tested:

  • The phone line works - both incoming and outgoing - with another phone
  • The Polycom can make internal calls - ie to another extension
  • We can call into the Polycom
  • We get a dial tone on the Polycom
  • There is a handwritten note on the unit that says "dial 9". When we dial 9, and the number nothing happens
  • When we dial the number without dialing 9 it doesn't let us finish.

Help! Any suggestions?

 

Thank you!!!

Hello @CS_RICH,

Polycom manufactured these phones originally for Nortel now Avaya so I would ask in one of their forums.

Best Regards

Thanks for that tip. However, I just tried and can't access the forum at Avaya.com because we don't have a company ID. Any other tips?

Hi

As posted we only manufacture these but got nothing to do with their support. You may need to call them or email them to raise a support case

What is the phone registering to?  It sounds like there is a registration server configuration error which is causing the dialing string to fail. Are you dialing 9 + 1 +areacode+number (assuming you're in the US)?

Joe, I've tried both 9+1+ area code, and 9+ just the last 7 digits. On our regular phones we just dial out - we don't need to dial 9 and we don't need to dial area code for local calls.

Our voicemail seems to be through Nortel Networks. Do you think that would be a factor in this?

 

thanks!

Re: Polycom Will Not Make Outbound Calls

You need to speak with whoever is providing your phone services whether it is an onsite PBX or a local telephone provider.  A support group should control the dialing plan in the PBX or Centrex service that is routing the calls from your phones.
