    OK, I am in quite a pickle here.

    I recently received a Nortel M7310 Office Phone from an old office that is closing down. The phone does not work on a standard landline - it needs a system that provides power to it in order to work. I know nothing else about how phone systems work.

    I would like this phone to work with my existing VOIP line, which is connected to my 3CX system. I called Nortel about this, the guy was very rude and couldn't answer my question.

    How can I get these phones to work? What do you guys recommend for this phone to work again with my VOIP line?

    Thanks,

    Anthony

    Sorry, this phone requires a Nortel Norstar system to operate. Sort of a glorified key system. You can't plug it into a standard phone line, or VoIP and expect it to operate.

    It looks like the "Supported on all Norstar Integrated Communications Systems" feature is a signal that you cannot use it in environment where are no any of "Norstar Integrated Communications Systems"...
    I may be wrong but any support of other telephone systems(protocols, etc.) wasn't introduced at http://www.telephonemagic.com/norstar-m7310-phone.htm (I've used an "internet based search", if you have any advanced documentation please provide me a link)

    The set of features and the "exterior" are impressive, there are no doubts. Personally, I will dream for this phone if it will be necessary to handle more then 1 calls simultaneously...

    Thanks
