Re: Adding text to the background of Cisco IP Phones?

Hi cnichols,

You may like to change "Your current Options" message for IP Phone.

We can change this in all phones but not in a per phone basis by going into the following files if you are using the Standard English locale:

C:\Program Files\Cisco\TFTPPath\English_United_States\SCCP-dictionary.xml

C:\Program Files\Cisco\TFTPPath\English_United_States\SCCP-dictionary.utf-8.xml

Open the files with notepad and do a find for ?Your current options?, change it and save

the file. After this, we have two options to make new settings available. One, we can

restart the TFTP service and then set the phones to factory default settings (7940/7960)

with following procedure:

1) Power off the phone

2) Hold down the '#'.

3) While holding '#', connect an AC adaptor to the phone.

4) Continue to hold '#' until the line buttons blink amber.

5) Release the '#' key.

6) Enter: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 * 0 #

7) The lights should change color from amber to red. The phone is now resetting to factory

defaults.

If not, you can customize a backgroud which contains already the text.
