I would like to purchase a couple of Polycom IP 6000 phones and set them up in our conference room(s). If we were to purchase these from an outside source, can we add them to an existing user on our system rather than set up unique users for each conference phone?

Hi Jeff, only one phone per extension is the preferred setup.

If the conference rooms have separate names you could associate that way.

I guess you could use a shared line setup but if 2 need the phone at the same time that will not work

I hope I addressed your question.

Jeff - Chuck is correct. One phone per user is the norm. If you don't want your existing user to have his/her own desk phone and are fine with that extension being a conference line, then you can go ahead and buy a conference phone. But you can't share multiple phones among a single extension.
