Applications

Phone applications allow you to access the following:

Cisco Extension Mobility

Cisco Extension Mobility (EM) allows you to temporarily configure a Cisco Unified IP Phone as your own. After you log in to EM, the phone adopts your user profile, including your phone lines, features, established services, and web-based settings. Your system administrator must set up EM for you.

Tips

  • EM automatically logs you out after a certain amount of time. Your system administrator establishes this time limit.
  • Changes that you make to your EM profile (from the User Options web pages) take effect the next time that you log in to EM on a phone.
  • Settings that are controlled only on the phone are not maintained in your EM profile.

Log In to EM

Procedure
    Step 1   Choose > EM Service (name can vary).
    Step 2   Enter your user ID and PIN (provided by your system administrator).
    Step 3   If prompted, select a device profile.

    Log Out of EM

    Procedure
      Step 1   Choose > EM Service (name can vary).
      Step 2   When prompted to log out, press Yes.

      Application Button

      Use the Application button (on left side of phone) to start applications such as Push to Talk or other services on your phone.

      Depending on how your system administrator sets up the Application button, you may be able to use it from the main screen only, or you may use it from any menu or service, or even when the phone is locked.

      The Application button can also be configured to start an application immediately after you press it or only after you hold it for several seconds.

      For more information, contact your system administrator.

      Push to Talk Service

      The Push to Talk service provides immediate communication (similar to a two-way radio) with members of your organization. Your system administrator must set up the Push to Talk service, and then you must subscribe to the service.


      Note


      Your system administrator provides detailed information about how to use your Push to Talk service.


      Instructions for accessing Push to Talk depend on your system:

      Use Push to Talk Service

      Procedure
        Step 1   Choose > Push to Talk (name can vary).

        Push to Talk service is active when the icon appears.

        Step 2   Use the button to start and end a transmission depending on how your service is configured.
        Step 3   Use the Talk and Stop softkeys to toggle between transmitting and listening.

        Java MIDlets

        Java MIDlets are special applications that provide you with specific services. An example of a MIDlet would be the Bar Code Scanner application that is used by the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7926G.

        To use a MIDLet, you need to subscribe to the service. To access a MIDlet, you press the Applications button (on the left side of the phone).

        Your administrator can set up a MIDlet to automatically launch when you turn on the phone. The MIDlet starts and then minimizes to the background until you need to use it.

        You can manually stop the launched MIDlet. To start the MIDlet later, you either launch the MIDlet or turn the phone off and on.

        For more information, contact your system administrator.

        Bar Code Scanner

        Your system administrator can configure the Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7926G to scan bar codes using the scanning module on the top of the phone. The phone uses a Java MIDlet to read the bar code data and display information such as pricing, location, and inventory information. Contact your system administrator for information about using the bar code scanner.


        Note


        The Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7926G must be running Firmware Version 1.4(1) or later to support the bar code scanner.
