This document covers the procedure on how to enable a personal speed dial feature on SCCP Phones with a maximum entries of 100 fast dial numbers from Cisco Unified Communication Manager Express (CME) 10.5 onward.
Increase in Personal Speed dial limit from CME 10.5.
This feature supports the configuration of 100 personal speed dial/fastdial entries for sccp phones. Only 24 fastdial entries are supported for Cisco Unified CME versions earlier than 10.5.. Now from CME 10.5 onward 100 fastdial entries are supported for Sccp phones.
To enable a Personal Speed Dial Menu, perform the following steps
SUMMARY STEPS 1. enable 2. configure terminal 3. ephone phone-tag 4. fastdial dial-tag number name name-string 5. end
Router(config)#ephone 1 Router(config-ephone)#fastdial ? <1-100> fast-dial entry tag
The fast-dial entry “tag” increased from 24 to 100 to allow the configuration of 100 fast dials.
Example: Router(config-ephone)# fastdial 1 5552 name Sales
Creates an entry for a personal speed-dial number on this phone. • dial-tag—Unique identifier to identify this entry during configuration. Range is 1 to 100. • number—Telephone number or extension to be dialed. • name name-string—Label to appear in the Personal Speed Dial menu, containing a string of up to 24 alphanumeric characters. Personal speed dial is handled through an XML request, so characters that have special meaning to HTTP, such as ampersand (&), percent sign (%), semicolon (;), angle brackets (< >), and vertical bars (||), are not allowed.
The following example creates a directory of eight personal speed-dial listings for one IP phone:

Adding fastdial entries from Sccp Phones
Users invoke entries from the Directories > My Phone Apps > Personal Speed Dials menu on IP phones.
On IP Phones fastdial entries can be found under "Directories" and "My Phone Apps"
User can add, update or delete fastdials from “My Phone Apps” for all 100 entries and are listed page wise on the Sccp phones.
