If you power your phone through the network connection, you must
be careful if you decide to unplug the network connection of the phone
and plug the cable into a desktop computer.
The network card in the computer cannot receive power
through the network connection; if power comes through
the connection, the network card can be destroyed. To
protect a network card, wait 10 seconds or longer after
unplugging the cable from the phone before plugging it
into a computer. This delay gives the switch enough time
to recognize that there is no longer a phone on the line and
to stop providing power to the cable.
By default, the administrator password settings are locked to prevent
users from making changes that could impact their network
connectivity. You must unlock the administrator password settings
before you can configure them.
If the administrator password is not set in common phone
profile, then user can modify the network settings.
