This is generally done when you power the phone the first time because the button sequence to enter maintenance must be entered during a specific section of the boot process. There are times, however, when you will need to get back into the maintenance settings in order to change or optimize the functionality of the phone, and though you can power the phone down and up by disconnecting/reconnecting the power supply, it is easier and faster to do it with the re-boot button sequence.

The Nortel IP telephone Re-boot sequence is: MUTE, UP, DOWN, UP, DOWN, UP, MUTE, 9, RELEASE.
