You can set distinctive incoming ringing tones for contacts in your local directory. This allows identification of a contact by a specific ring tone.

To set a distinctive ring for a local contact:

  • Press Menu button then Features, and select Contact Directory.
  • Using the arrow keys, scroll through the directory to choose a contact.
  • Press Edit and scroll down to Ring Type.
  • Enter a number corresponding to one of the ring types available (press Polycom 430 Right arrow and then << to remove an existing value). See Ring Type in this guide for further details.
  • Press the Save soft key or Cancel to abandon the change then press Menu button to return to the idle display.
  • Incoming calls from this contact will now have a distinctive ringing pattern.

This feature is local to the phone, and may be overridden by server settings. Contact your system administrator for more details.
