Have extra ASCII characters appearing on 7911 and 7961 phones when ringing internal extensions. example, extension named "sue" will show on phones as "sue^LY".

Think it may be incorrect phone load. What should I check.


I have this problem too.

Hi Wayne,

Yes, the problem is with CME. I remembered reading this awhile back (weird one!)

Garbage characters in called name displayed on calling phone

Symptom: Garbage characters in called name displayed on calling phone Conditions: When placing a call from one phone to another phone on CME using 12.4(11)T3, the displayed name on the calling phone gets some unidentified characters at the end of the displayed name after a few seconds have passed. The problem was NOT seen in 12.4(11)T2

From this excellent thread;


Hope this helps!
