Understanding Lines vs. Calls

To avoid confusion about lines and calls, refer to these descriptions:
Lines—Each line corresponds to a phone number (or extension) that others can use to call you. The
Cisco Unified IP Phone 7961G/7961G-GE supports one to six lines and the Cisco Unified IP Phone
7941G/7941G-GE supports one to two lines, depending on configuration. To see how many lines you
have, look at the right side of your phone screen. You have as many lines as you have directory
numbers and phone line icons:
Calls—Each line can support multiple calls. By default, your phone supports four connected calls per
line, but your system administrator can adjust this number according to your needs. Only one call can
be active at any time; other calls are automatically placed on hold.

Understanding Line and Call Icons

Your phone displays icons to help you determine the call and line state.
