7941G Local Speed Dial Directory

Unanswered Question
Jan 30th, 2007


I created the speeddial.xml file per the sys admin guide, loaded it up on our test lab and all looked fine.

Select the hard "directories" button and display reads:

--missed calls

--recieved calls

--local directory

--local speed dial

--personal speed dial

Select local speed dial and all entries show. So I uploaded the same file to a remote site production router which (to the best of my knowledge) is configured the same as my lab. But the user states that she only gets the first three options --missed calls, --recieved calls, and --local directory.

I've checked and compared everything I can think of.

Any suggestions?

Hi Michael,

I also had problems with directories on the 7912, in my case, the local directory was missing. I've updated to the latest image and since then everything is fine. The image that I use is


Let us know if that fixes the issue for you.

Indeed, the various phone images have bugs and for the 7912 problem, that was the only thing that fixed the issue. I use 8.x versions without issues.

But a problem that I have with _all_ the images on 7911/41/61, is that external placed calls always show as 'unknown' in the directory.

I think the cisco 'recommendation' on the 7.x firmware is not really a mandatory one, given that 8.x images are listen in the compatibility table, and in the CME download area is now released a file that contains all 8.x firmware for the ephones.
