How to reset your Polycom VVX phone

  1. Press and hold buttons 1, 3, and 0 to force the phone to reset.
  2. Power on the phone and wait for the Starting Application dialog to appear as the phone boots.
  3. Press cancel to stop the Starting Application dialog.
  4. The Welcome dialog will count down from 7. During this process, hold buttons 1, 3, and 5 simultaneously to summon the password prompt.
  5. Enter the MAC address using lower case characters. For letters, select the a->1A mode and press the key the amount of times the letter requires. (For example, the letter “F” would need to be pressed three times.) Since there’s no backspace option, please type the address carefully to make sure there are no errors. However, if needed, you can hold 1, 3, and 5 again to restart the process.
  6. Once entered, the Polycom phone will have been reset. The new default password is 456.
