JQ Phone - Customize your Cisco IP Phone by iPhone

JQ Phone is an application that allows you to change your Cisco IP Phone background and customize it into an unique phone.  You can use the iPhone library or take a picture live and send it to IP phone as background image.  You can view it as the iPhone version of phone designer.  It works with Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

JQ = IP + 1, when you add something to your IP phone, it will become a totally unique phone for you

Key features:
- Support background photos from media library in iPhone or take live pictures from iPhone
- Support most color IP phones, including 9971, 9951, 8961, 7975, 7971, 7970, 7965 and 7945
- Save your settings so that you don't need to enter over and over again

Any chance this will work on a 8945?

No I don't think that is possible:

Only ring tone and idle display can be configured. Let me get a 8945 and test it out to confirm.

Just purchased the app and I get the following error on the info page;
(begin tag) CiscoIPPhoneErrorNumber="4" /(end tag)

background doesn't appear and have tried multiple pictures.

Help please.

CiscoIPPhoneErrorNumber="4" means authentication failure. Please make sure:

- Username/password are correct - this is the CCM End user username and password, not PIN
- Check that the user is associated to the device in UCM admin page

I just bought the app and it appears to work, but not really. I can load the picture to my IP phone then go settings, user preferences, background images. At this point I can the see the loaded picture, but when I select it, all I get is a blue screen. Thoughts?

You don't need to select it on phone. It will push automatically to your phone just like what the phone designer did. What is the log messages that you see in the app?

I am getting

(begin tag) CiscoIPPhoneErrorNumber="46" /(end tag)

All settings seem to be OK. Any ideas?

Glenn said...

Sorry, meant 6, not 46

Danny Wong said...

CiscoIPPhoneErrorNumber="6" means connection timeout. Did you able to access the phone IP address using a web browser?

Glenn said...

Yes, I am able to access the phone IP address using a web browser

Danny Wong said...

Which model of phones are you connecting to?

Glenn said...

7975

Danny Wong said...

What is your UCM and phone firmware version? Will see if I can replicate it in lab

Danny Wong said...

What about the other phones? Are all phones under the same cluster not working, or only just 7975 phone?
