Common Phone Profile Information

Name

Enter a name to identify the common phone profile; for example, CPP_7905. The value can include 1 to 50 characters, including alphanumeric characters, dot, dash, and underscores.

Description

Identify the purpose of the common phone profile; for example, common phone profile for the 7905 phone.

Local Phone Unlock Password

Enter the password that is used to unlock a local phone. Valid values comprise 1 to 15 characters.

DND Option

When you enable Do Not Disturb (DND) on the phone, this parameter allows you to specify how the DND features handle incoming calls:

Call Reject—This option specifies that no incoming call information gets presented to the user. Depending on how you configure the DND Incoming Call Alert parameter, the phone may play a beep or display a flash notification of the call.

Ringer Off—This option turns off the ringer, but incoming call information gets presented to the device, so the user can accept the call.

Note For 7940/7960 phones that are running SCCP, you can only choose the Ringer Off option. For mobile devices and dual-mode phones, you can only choose the Call Reject option. When you activate DND Call Reject on a mobile device or dual-mode phone, no call information gets presented to the device.

DND Incoming Call Alert

When you enable the DND Ringer Off or Call Reject option, this parameter specifies how a call displays on a phone.

From the drop-down list, choose one of the following options:

Disable—This option disables both beep and flash notification of a call, but for the DND Ringer Off option, incoming call information still gets displayed. For the DND Call Reject option, no call alerts display, and no information gets sent to the device.

Beep Only—For an incoming call, this option causes the phone to beep.

Flash Only—For an incoming call, this option causes the phone to display a flash alert.

Phone Personalization

From the drop-down list box, enable or disable the personalization settings on the phone, or choose Default to use the phone personalization that is set in the Common Phone Profile. You can choose one of the following options:

Disabled—None of the personalization settings on the phone get activated.

Enabled—This setting accepts a personalized background image file, which is used for the phone screen; it accepts a preview image file for temporary display; and it accepts a personalized tone file, so the default ring tone can be personalized.

Default—Use the phone personalization setting that is in the Common Phone Profile.

Services Provisioning

From the drop-down list box, choose whether the phone will use the services provisioned in the phone configuration file (Internal), services received from an external URL (External URL), or both.
