Before You Begin

These procedures specifically concern the Panasonic DECT series of phones.

Note: Do not factory reset a phone to address call quality issues!

Factory resetting a phone is not recommended as a troubleshooting step, except as a last resort.

Additionally, key portions of this procedure require some timing. It is a good idea to review all of the steps below before you begin. Generally speaking, you want to:

  1. Enter access information (MAC password or MAC ID).
  2. Complete reset process.
  3. Reconfigure the config server address (if necessary).
