Need a service contract?

I'm told I need a service contract for a UC540 that was purchased only a few months ago.  I sort of assumed that for at least the first year of ownership I'd be entitled to updates, but that is not the case?

Any idea how to get a service contract that will allow me to get updates w/o spending any more money than I absolutely have to?  So far all the support I've required has come from these forums, so I don't want to spend a lot more money than I have to.

I called Cisco and they said to just call a reseller, and that there aren't any part #'s.  But there HAS to be a part number or two, right?

The more I try this Cisco stuff, the more I realize I should have stayed with the Asterisk-based solutions.  Pretty disgusted with this approach.

Hello,

If you don't have a contract it can cause issues downloading the software from the Cisco.com site, but you can download software from the support forums without a contract. Here is the warrany information that comes with the UC and no contract:

Warranty Information

The Cisco Unified Communications 540 has 1 year of hardware support and 90 days of software support though the Small Business Support Center.

Find detailed warranty information on Cisco.com at the Product Warranties page

You can look up contract part numbers here:

The contract part numbers are:

CON-SBS-SVC4 - SBS 8x5xNBD 3yr Small Business Support Svc 4

CON-SBS4-SVC1 - SBS4 24x7x4 3yr Small Business Partner Rapid Response

You will have to purchase the contract from an authorized distributor or reseller.

Thanks,
