- Time zone settings etc.
Note: To reset an Akuvox phone to factory default settings (in current phone version):

- Goto Settings
- Foto Advance Setting
- Enter web password of the phone
- choose option 4 for Reset factory
When provisioning a Akuvox phone, you should first set the required settings on the PBX as shown in provisioning document Steps Before Provisioning.
It is important to note in the document "Steps Before Provisioning", how to map the MAC address of the phone to the PBX extension under the registration tab as shown again below.
It is also important to note in the document "Steps Before Provisioning", under "Configuring the Domain Settings", the "Provisioning Parameters" as shown again below.
The Authentication user, Authentication password and Authentication PIN settings allow administrators to provision phones and log into a phone’s web interface remotely. These settings enable administrators to use identical usernames and passwords for all devices in a domain, simplifying the authentication process from the GUI of the phone. The password will bypass users’ passwords (the web interface passwords), so users will not be able to use their passwords; hence, this setting can be used to keep users out of the phone’s web interface and prevent them from inadvertently changing anything. The default username is admin, and the default password is password.
For provisioning buttons, the setting up of buttons is described in buttons. There, you will see how to prepare a new buttons profile, how to set up the individual buttons (like BLF) and how to map that profile to a specific extension. The numbers for the buttons correspond to the buttons on the phone. If a number is not added in the profile, that button will not be set on the phone.
Open MAC Provisioning
For security reasons, navigate to the extension level and activate "Open account for MAC based provisioning" as shown, to allow the phone to provision to that specific account.
