How to tell the Nortel / Norstar / BCM T7316 and T7316E apart

The T7316 and T7316E can be distinguished by the extra button below the dialpad on the T7316E.  The speakerphone button on the T7316E has been relocated here.  This frees up a programmable key on the right side of the phone -- instead of the speakerphone feature for one of the programmable keys, you can program a line or feature.  Both the T7316 and T7316E feature handsfree speakerphone.

"So what's the functional difference between the T7316 and T7316E?"

The T7316E is expandable.  The T7316 is not.  

The T7316E can be expanded with the T24 CAP module for additional lines and/or feature buttons.  The T24 CAP module is NOT compatible with the T7316.  Another difference is that the speakerphone button has been relocated to beneath the dialpad on the T7316E, freeing up a programmable line/feature button on the right side of the phone.

Expand the capacity of your T7316E with a T24 CAP module from

Easily expand the capacity of your T7316E!  Up to nine T24 CAP/KEM units can be added to the T7316E.  If you add five or more T24 units, you'll need a secondary auxiliary power supply (SAPS), available separately.  Each T24 unit allows you to add up to 24 features or line buttons to your phone.
