Setting up an office phone is one of those things that we like to procrastinate as much as possible. And with good reason. Like with all professional solutions, manufacturers of office phones have placed the brunt of configuration on the end user because, you know, the end user is a professional, so it’s no big deal.

Most AT&T pro phones are guilty of this. Just look at their line of 6-liners (ha-ha): for technology that’s about five decades old, office phones do a good job of being more convoluted than cutting-edge gizmos. The AT&T ML17929 isn’t as bad, though. It only features two line jacks, and it has a sizeable screen accompanied by a plethora of buttons that will make initial setup and regular use much more pleasant.

At least, that’s the idea you get from a quick glance. Then you go over the phone’s features: 18 different speed dial numbers, a contact book that supports up to 100 entries, three-party conversations… Suddenly, those two lines aren’t looking like an easy break.

To complicate matters further, the phone is often used as part of an entire office network, meaning that you’ll have to get it to interact with what could be dozens of other phones in the same area. This is the time when you’ll probably want to start reaching for the AT&T ML17929 manual.

Although the lack of VoIP functionality makes this model look a bit dated, it’s going to allow you to configure the device to your liking even if you aren’t always on good terms with office gadgets. The three-party conversation thing can be tricky, though, and the contact book can be downright confusing. Add to this the phone’s call forwarding options, and you’ll soon find that our AT&T ML17929 user manual isn’t just there to act as a cup holder: http://sharedf.com/documentation/att-ml17929-owners-instruction-manual/
