MITvoip Telephone Distinctive Ringing

On this page:


The distinctive ringing feature allows you set an identifying ring tone for a particular contact in your Contact Directory.

The MITvoip Web Interface offers additional call screening features, including call filtering and forwarding by group.

Setting a Distinctive Ring Tone

  1. Highlight the entry you want in your Contact Directory.
  2. Press the Edit soft key.
  3. Use the up/down arrows to scroll to the Ring Type field.
  4. Enter the number of the ring tone you want to use.
  5. Your phone comes with ring tones 1-12 preprogrammed. For distinctive ringing, avoid choosing #1 (silent ring) or your current default ring tone (usually #2, low trill).
  6. If you want to know what different rings sound like, see Choosing a Ring Tone below.
  7. Press the Save soft key.
  8. Press the Directories button to exit the directory. If you don't have a Directories button, press the Menu button.

When you receive a call from that contact's phone number, you will hear the distinctive ring.

Choosing a Ring Tone

Your MITvoip phone has a dozen ring tones installed. You can hear samples of them by following these steps:

  1. Press Menu.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Select Basic.
  4. Select Ring Type.
  5. If you have multiple lines on your phone, select a line.
    Result: A list of ring types will appear (silent ring, low trill, low double trill, etc.). The checkmark indicates what the current ring tone is for your phone (or the selected line).
  6. To hear a sample of a ring tone, use the up/down arrows to highlight it and press the Play soft key.
    Note: This menu is used to set the default ring tone for your phone (or the selected line), not to choose a distinctive ring tone for a particular contact.
  7. When you find the tone you want, make a note of its number.
  8. Press Menu to exit the menus.
