How do I use a Polycom VoIP desk phone?

You use a Polycom desk phone exactly as you would use any other desk phone. You make and receive calls in the same way you are used to, the call just connects over the internet instead of a phone line. For instructions on how to perform specific tasks with your desk phone, see the manufacturer's instructions. There's a link in the Resources box at the top of this article.

  • Your desk phone has direct access to your One Net Business call history and your organisation's phone book, so you always see the latest information.
