Re: Factory Reset and Current Data Wipe

Hello lync_54,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

The community's VoIP FAQ contains this post here:

Oct 10, 2011 Question: How can I reset / Factory default my Phones configuration?

Resolution: Please check => here <=


The above is applicable to the VVX & Trio phones. You can either factory restore or format the file system. The last needs a local provisioning server to enable the phone to load a software again.


In regards to the CX phones I believe pressing * and #on booting up should do the trick.


Polycom and other manufacturers produce these optimized for Microsoft® Lync® or Skype® for Business devices after a reference design and the embedded OS running on the phones is provided, supported and maintained by our partner Microsoft®.

You therefore may want to reach out to the Microsoft® community and / or Microsoft® support directly instead as this is the most direct and efficient path.

Polycom is unable to add any new features into the functionality of these CX Devices
