We are doing a ringcentral trial with Yealink phones, which I understand are somewhat new to RingCentral.

Is there any way to either access the cloud contact lists via the yealink deskphones or to export the list and import a list to the phones?

It seems that Yealink phones can manually import contact lists via the web interface, but RingCentral has locked up the provisioned phones with their own password so you can not access the web interface without resetting the phone and allegedly voiding the warranty.

ALSO: Do other phone brands that Ringcentral provides (Cisco, Polycom) have synced or importable contact lists? While I enjoy the Yealink phone so far in most aspects, this is a notable shortfall

Hi AF1,

I checked around, and T48s will have the contact list. What phone are you using? If you would like to import a contact list yourself to the phone, you're able to call into support for the password to your phone :) Support's number is 888-898-4591.
