Re: Phone Default Background Images

First things first - Can you change the background ??

You need to upload the XML File to TFTP root.

Then upload two (image and thumb) files to the TFTP area. The hardest part is the images have to match exactly the pixels and colours.

Have you done this ? Which model phone are you attempting to customize ?

Re: Phone Default Background Images

I have the Images up on the TFTP server. I was wondering if there was a way to have the phones pull the new images and make it the default image that shows up once the phone is registered. With out having to select it on each phone manually.

Re: Phone Default Background Images

I have the same issue. We have a custom image up running. However, we have 100 phones already installed that we need to be able to change the default image for. It would also be extremely helpful as mentioned here that once a new phone registers that it pulls the assigned default image. Is there anyway to do this?

Re: Phone Default Background Images

Curious.  I haven't tried this out but I would think that there may be a remote possibility you could accomplish this using an XML application that leverages the internal URI button press functionality in the Cisco IP phone.  Though it would probably be tricky dealing with the timing and making sure that the key presses are in the correct order.

Probably not worth the effort.  But saying it isn't "possible" may not be accurate.  Again I haven't tried this specific application but I have been able to press buttons remotely on the phone using XML.

Just a thought.

Re: Phone Default Background Images

Actually, I came across this thread.  Apparently there is an undocumented method on Cisco Phones to set the background image without imitating key presses.
