I had a customer ready to replace a troublesome Partner with an X-Blue X-16 (4 lines, 6 phones and voicemail) but his wife chirped in and the phones HAD to be BEIGE.

Other than more Partners, what is there out there that has BEIGE phones?

Thanks, Bracha

Why not just replace the defective part? While Nortel telephone systems are discontinued, would they accept a Norstar?

Bring in a Sand Beige phone and ask her again. There must be something else working here because you can upgrade the processor to an R8 and fix all your troubles. Other than that, a Nortel, a Vodavi, and possibly NEC DSX's make light colored phones. Since the Vodavi has been MD'd for several years (Starplus 61614) you're going to have a hard time finding color.

Xblue phones also come in "Titanium" silver color, and red and blue (probably one of the most amount of colors on the market now). Maybe Panasonic? Their phones come in black and white. NEC DSX also has black and white telephones.

You might know this already, but if they decide to go with a used Norstar, you can buy replacement beige (ash) housings for the M-series phones from Refurb Supplies. They're cheap, great quality, and look every bit as good as the original ones.

I have to go with repairing. They must like the color sets they have so stick with it. Less then going new.

The white (beige) Partner phones are tough to get on the refurb market and when you do find them they are expensive and might not be the one you want.

I believe the color is called Misty Creme. Color suffix -215.

As opposed to white, -58, ivory -50, or beige -60.

XBlue used to offer a custom logo. Perhaps this is something the customer may go for.

Avaya's Misty cream which the partners were, is a close match to the White NEC DSX Phones.

If they are beige it is because they have discolored to that color.
