You wouldnt be able to find this info in CCM. However, from the branch router in which the phone is located, you can issue a:

show mac-address-table address [H.H.H] (mac of phone)

The output will most likely point to your ethernet port in which your switch is connected. Telnet to that switch and issue the same command..if the port referenced in the output is connected to another switch..telnet to said switch and issue the command until you can go no further.

Hope that helped, if so please rate.
