I have 2 Cisco Phone (7905G) with sip firmware.

I lost the configuration password. So I can't change network settings.

Is there a way to do a factory default reset ?

Restoring Factory Default Settings Perform the following steps to restore factory default settings when you forget the password.

Press *, 0, and the 4 softkey simultaneously. The manufacturing test-option screen appears.

Type 322873738# and press *.

Press *, 0, and the 4 softkey again, or power-cycle the phone. You return to normal operation.

Alternatively - and probably easier,

You can register the phone with SCCP, and then switch it back over to SIP. If you have a CUCM 5/6 this is probably the easiest option. If this is standalone you'll be better off with the factory reset.
