Next we need to configure our IP Phone to talk to Teams. Microsoft have a list of Teams supported devices as follows however most IP phones will work with Teams so don’t throw away your old phones. If in doubt contact us if you need help with your IP Phone set-up.

Microsoft’s supported Teams phones per their website are listed below, however for our demonstration we have used a very basic Yealink T21P phone.

How To Configure An IP Phone on Teams

First of all you will need details of Microsoft’s auto provisioning servers to input in to your IP Phone

Microsoft Teams IP Phones Auto Provisioning Servers

  • EMEA: http://emea.ipp.sdg.teams.microsoft.com
  • Americas: http://noam.ipp.sdg.teams.microsoft.com
  • APAC: http://apac.ipp.sdg.teams.microsoft.com

As Stream are UK based we will use the EMEA auto provisioning server for this demonstration.

Next on your physical IP phone in this example we are using Yealink click on the Menu button and then click on the Status button to obtain the IP address of your phone.

Next put the IP address of the phone into a web browser to obtain access to the phones administration screen.

Enter the default username and password for the phone

Next click on settings auto provision and then in the Server URL section enter the Microsoft Auto Provisioning URL

Next simply click on the confirm button at the bottom of the page.

Once you have clicked confirm the Phone will automatically connect to Microsoft and download configuration files to the phone.

Next on your IP Phone using the keypad dialer dial *55* followed by the phone verification code which was detailed earlier in the Phones Provision screen on teams e.g. dial *55*123456 on your IP Phone.

The Phone will then display a message from Microsoft on the LCD Screen as follows:

Step 1: On your computer of mobile go to https://microsoft.com/devicelogin

Step 2: Enter the code below to sign in



Next on your computer or phone go to https://microsoft.com/devicelogin and enter the code from your IP Phone screen.

Once you have entered the code it will ask your for your Office365 login details. Login to O365 as per normal and once complete your phone will update and be connected to your Teams ID.
