Your ROLMphone model may have a display, a speakerphone, from 12 to 40 feature keys, and multiple extensions. These digital telephones work with your company’s Siemens Communications Server to give you advanced, easy-to-use telephone features. The communications server is your facility’s telecommunications system.

ROLMphone Basics Faceplate The faceplate is a paper template that identifies features that you access by pressing specific keys on your telephone. It shows which system features have been assigned to your phone keys. Line Keys Your ROLMphone telephone has a separate line key for every extension that appears on your phone.
It also lets you scroll through messages and notifications waiting in your mailbox and provides information you’ll find useful as you set up and use Siemens features. Some features work differently on display phones from the way they do on non-display phones.
Class of Service Some of the phones in your system may be set up to use one class of service (the primary) during normal business hours and then automatically change to a more limited one (the secondary) during non-business hours. If so, the features you can use may vary, depending on the class of service in effect at the time.
The Connect key lets you • reconnect with a call placed on consultation hold • reconnect with a transferred call before the transfer is complete • alternate between two parties, when you have one of them on consultation hold (See “Connect” on page 2-21.)

Time Key: On a display phone, pressing the Time key displays the current day, date, and time. Feature Access Codes Since a set of features has already been assigned to your phone’s feature keys, you may find that your phone does not have feature keys for some of the features described in this guide.
Status Lights The red status lights next to line keys tell you what is happening on those lines. A line key status light may turn on steadily, blink, or flash at different rates to signal the status of that line. Table 1-1.
Speaker All ROLMphone 120/240/400 series phones have a speaker that you can use for receiving calls or listening to the PhoneMail system. On ROLMphone models that only have a speaker and not a microphone (the RP120 and RP240 Basic models), you must pick up your handset to speak to the other party.
Sounds Your phone makes different sounds to let you know what’s going on. Rings occur on a line that you are not using and indicate that you have an incoming call. Tones occur while you are using your phone and provide information about calls and features.
Sound Meaning Busy tone The party you called is on the phone. Busy tone that changes You cannot queue for the to a very fast busy tone party you called. Dial tone You can make a call or invoke a feature. Fast busy tone Invalid call Tones (cont.)
Sound Meaning Very short tone after You have been routed to the dialing next outgoing trunk or to a more expensive route.

The slide control is located underneath the RP240, RP240E, and RP400 and either underneath or on the side of the RP120 and RP240 Basic.
Where to Go for Assistance See Appendix B, “Help!” for some procedures that may help you correct problems with your phone. Although every company has its own way of handling support for ROLMphone telephones, most have a person responsible for making configuration changes and answering questions about the telephone system.

Bad Line Reporting If you have a bad connection with an external call, Bad Line Reporting lets you report the bad connection so that it will be logged at the communications server. This provides general information for service technicians. You may also want to explain the problem in detail to your company repair service.
Hunt Groups A hunt group consists of a group of telephones set up to move an incoming call automatically from one phone to another until it is answered or the caller hangs up. A call to a hunt group is signaled by long rings.
You can only join a station hunt group if your phone has been assigned the station hunt group class of service. (Ask your system administrator whether your phone has it.) You can only be a member of one station hunt group. However, other linear-pattern hunt groups may include you as the last member of their groups.
For a linear-pattern pilot hunt group, if all the members of the group are busy the call will be placed in a system queue until one of the members becomes available. If no queue has been set up at the communications server, or if all queue positions are occupied, the caller will receive a busy tone.

Forced Authorization With the Forced Authorization feature, the system will prompt you to enter a personal identification number (PIN) to temporarily authorize you to call an outside number from a phone with limited calling capabilities. Forced Authorization remains in effect only until you hang up.
Remote Authorization The Remote Authorization feature lets you activate your personal identification number (PIN) at a phone that you are temporarily using, to temporarily raise its class of service to your phone’s class of service. This lets you access features you normally use, but which are not allowed from the remote phone.
Note: Do not deactivate your PIN during a call, since this will disconnect the call. 7-16 ROLMphone 120/240/400 Series User Guide...
Class of Service Changeover Your phone may be set up at the communications server to use one class of service (the primary) during normal business hours and then automatically change over to a more limited one (the secondary) during non-business hours. This arrangement makes it more difficult for someone to use your phone to make unauthorized calls.
Trace Call Trace Call lets you record a caller’s phone number on a system printout. You can trace a call manually and then ask your communications server system administrator for a printout of the number. Or, if Automatic Trace Call has been assigned to your phone’s class of service, all calls to your phone will be traced and their numbers printed at the communications server.

Self Test The Self Test should be the initial step in troubleshooting problems with ROLMphone 120/240/400 series telephones. The purpose of the Self Test is to perform an internal check of the telephone. A successful Self Test causes all status lights to flicker briefly, and the display, if present, to light for one second.
The other party cannot hear you when you are using the speakerphone, though everything else works. Verify that your phone is equipped with a speakerphone (speaker and microphone). Check the phone name on the label underneath the phone. RP120 models and the RP240 Basic do not have a microphone, and you must use the handset to speak to the other party.
