I am having 7940 IP Phones with 2 lines configured for separate extensions. One is used for VOIP calls and the second is used for PSTN calls.

On th phone instead of individual directory numbers I want to have "VOIP" and "PSTN" in the display. Is this possible?

Hi Pete,

Yes, go to CCMAdmin | Device | Phone | Look for the Directory Number and configure that under Line Text Label.

Hi Pete,

You can use the Line Text Label to accomplish this. Have a look;

Directory Number Configuration Page

Line Settings for This Device

Display (Internal Caller ID)

External Phone Number Mask

**Line Text Label**

Message Waiting Lamp Policy

Ring Setting (Phone Idle)

Ring Setting (Phone Active)**

Line Text Label

Use this field only if you do not want the directory number to show on the line appearance. Enter text that identifies this directory number for a line/phone combination.

Suggested entries include boss's name, department's name, or other appropriate information to identify multiple directory numbers to secretary/assistant who monitors multiple directory numbers.

Setting applies only to the current device.

From this good doc;

Hope this helps!
