Common Questions and Issues

If you are experiencing an issue, here are some things you can try prior to contacting support.  It is always a good idea to reboot your phone first as it may resolve the issue.  To do so: press the Menu button and then select options 3, 1, 8.

 

I setup my voicemail but it is not working.

Activating your voicemail is a two-step process, ensure you have done both steps.  First you must personalize your mailbox by recording your name and greeting and then you must activate your voicemail by sending calls to it if you are on the phone or do not answer.  Instructions can be found here.

 

I am having difficulty entering contacts into my telephone.

Instructions for adding contacts can be found here.

 

I cannot make a domestic long distance call.  I enter my authorization code and nothing happens.

The new phone system does not require you to use your authorization code for domestic long distance.  You only need to dial 9 followed by the 10 digit phone number.

 

The message waiting indicator (red light) on my phone stays on after I have listened to my voice messages.

Reboot your telephone set by pressing the Menu button and then selecting options 3, 1, 8.

 

I am unable to access my voicemail using #71 on my campus phone.

Call the UT Voicemail number (2-8886) instead.

 

I am having trouble with the UT voicemail web interface.  Some of my voicemails don't display or some normal options are not available on the page.

The Chrome web browser is currently not supported.  If you are using Chrome, please try again with another browser.
If you are using another browser: log out; close your browser; and log back in.

 

I am still having trouble with my phone.  Who do I contact for support?

 Look up your support contact here (requires EID login).

Shared Meet-Me Conference instructions and controls

These instructions and controls apply to Shared Meet-Me Conference bridges scheduled via calendar resource or though the University Operators.  Shared Meet-Me Conference bridges are intended for occasional use.  Those needing frequent or extended use of conference bridge resources may be referred to the Personal Meet-Me conference service available through the Business Class Service. 

Reservations

Ten 25-particpant conference bridges are available to be reserved.

To reserve via AEMS/O365 Calendaring
Add a conference call resource as a participant to your meeting (the same way you would book a shared conference room) and the request will be routed to the University Operators for approval.  If the resource is already reserved at the time, your request will be automatically rejected and you will need to find another available conference bridge or an alternate time for your meeting.  The conference bridge resources currently available are:

Participant instructions

Call the Unified Communications Conference number, 512-232-8670 (2-8670 on campus). 

When prompted, enter the Conference Access Code, followed by the # key. 

The system will prompt “Thank you.  If you are the chairperson, please press the “star” key now.  Otherwise, stay on the line…”

(Since these conferences are un-moderated, there is no chairperson.  The participant can either wait through the prompt “…stay on the line”, or press the # key to bypass the chairperson message.)
