I just purchased this phone used and it appears that whoever had it before me has wiped the phone as it cannot load the application.  I have attempted to add the firmware back to the phone but the phone will not get an IP address so it cannot contact the provisioning server.  I have tried to statically set the IP address but this has no effect either.  Even with the phone having a static IP address, I cannot ping the phone.  There are no VLANs on the switch and LLDP and CDP have been disabled in the phone.  I have tried multiple switch ports and ethernet cables.  Is the phone defective?

Hello @avenger07,


welcome to the Polycom Community.

most likely you purchased a defective unit but without the serial number / MAC address we are unable to lookup the history of the device.

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.

Best Regards
