Was in A Sears store and noticed on their phones that where "your current options" is displayed they had Sears Store displayed.

Can someone tell me where that is configured.

Thank you

Hi Stanley,


This is available in CME only, not CCM at this point in time;


Have you looked into using this CME Feature?


System Message Display


The System Message Display feature allows you to specify a custom text or display message to appear in the lower part of the display window on display-capable IP phones. If you do not set a custom text or display message, the default message "Cisco Unified CME" is displayed.


When you specify a text message, the number of characters that can be displayed is not fixed because IP phones typically use a proportional (as opposed to fixed-width) font. There is room for approximately 30 alphanumeric characters.


The display message is refreshed with a new message after one of the following events occurs:


Busy phone goes back on-hook.


Idle phone receives a keepalive message.


Phone is restarted.


The file-display feature allows you to specify a file to display on display-capable IP phones when they are not in use. You can use this feature to provide the phone display with a system message that is refreshed at configurable intervals, similar to the way that the text message feature provides a message.


The difference between the two is that the system text message feature displays a single line of text at the bottom of the phone display, whereas the ***system display message feature can use the entire display area and contain graphic images.


SCCP: Modifying System Message Display

From this good CME doc;
