I was trying to do a swap of extensions - 2 users were changing their locations.  Logged in as admin2, used the swap wizard and now 1 extension took the other's extension number.  but the other phone / port doesn't work.  Plug the phone in and it says initialize (so it's live / getting power) abd the LCD is blank.  I tried other phones - the problem is with the port.  if you call that extension, you get a busy signal.

any idea how to troubleshoot this?

if we call the extension we are having problems with, we get a busy signal with or without the phone plugged in.  we checked the phone cord and that's OK.  we checked the phone in abother jack in the building and that's ok.  so it's likely something with the port / extension / software?

how can I tell what port on the box that an extension is connected to?

What model of NEC system are you using?  And is the phone digital or IP?
