Sign into Your Phone
When you receive a desktop telephone, you must sign in to your phone as soon as possible. This action registers the phone to your SMU account and ensures full functionality and emergency calling capability.
Complete instructions for signing in are available in the Signing On to Your Phone.
Integration with Skype for Business
Even though you are using a physical desk phone, Skype for Business provides several useful features like creating a personalized voicemail greeting and setting up contact lists. You can also make and receive university calls from your computer or mobile device when away from your desk. See Skype for Business.
Start Making Calls!
You can make calls with your desk phone by using the keypad or selecting a contact from the directory. Dialing functionality will remain the same for campus users; however, you will no longer need to enter a long distance code to place calls.
