If I bring my 7030 phone with me to school and plug it in where my Cisco IP Phone 7911 is plugged in, should it work?Tina

Is the "audio operation" a dial tone or something more or something else?TinaYes, a landline would be ok, or any standard telephony service with an RJ11 jack, your cableTV modem telephone jack, or other voip ATA. When plugged into any of these, the 7030 should work fine for placing a call. When picking up the handset you hear dial tone, and you can dial a number and converse with someone. Everything that is needed inside the phone for this purpose is powered from the center two pins, just like for any other telephone. The outer two pins on the connector serve the digital aspects of the set for data and power, to run the display, to run the feature and line buttons, etc. None of these will work when connected to a telephone line.If that doesn't work, then there is probably little hope that it will work with the Panasonic PBX.
Quote from: Phonesrfun on February 05, 2016, 11:11:09 PMA KXT7030 telephone set will not give dial tone if plugged into a standard POTS wall jack. It needs the power from the outer two wires to make it work. Even though a legacy POTS analog phone will work when plugged into a 308, the reverse is not true. The 7030 needs to be mated with the proprietary PBX to work.This thread seems to be long and I haven't been following it, and so this might have already been pointed out, but have you tried the KXT7030 in the 308 with no other items plugged in? If any other item plugged into an extension jack has a short or a cross between the outer pair and inner pair, it would probably keep the entire system from functioning. The outer pair of wires is both a power source and a multiplexed signal source for all the functions like the lights and buttons. Maybe that has already been suggested.If your phone does not work, I think I have one I could sell, but it is black.

I then tried to only plug in the CO line and, again, nothing. If you have another 7030 that you could part with, PM me with a price. At least I would know that it worked.Thank you,Tina
