I would like to find out if Cisco 8961 IP phones are fully compatabile with UC520 box, what I mean by fully compatabilty is that if all 8961 phone features are supported by UC520.

Even though the 8961 phone is not yet supported on the UC520, support for the 8961 phones on the UC520, UC540, and UC560 is planned, and the answer to that question can be found in the FAQs at the link below:

Updated feedback received the end of last week, from the PM team for UC-5xx servers, indicated they do not have these endpoints in their roadmap for integration at this time.

I've updated the post John had correctly pointed you to to reflect this update received the end of last week as well.

Any update to this?

Are 8900s and 9900s still not on the road map for support on the UC500 series?

Hello, the 8900 Series IP phones will be compatible with UC500 sometime next calendar year, at a date to be determined. Thank you for asking.
