Changing Background Image for CME IP phones

To change the background image of IP phone for CME is quite similar to UCM, I am using a 7965 as an example to illustrate how to get it done.

7965 resolution
Actual Background Image - 320x212
Image Thumbnail - 80x53

Create 2 images based on above resolution.

1. Create directory on CME router
mkdir Desktops
cd Desktops
mkdir 320x212x16
cd 320x212x16

2. Compose a List.xml file, here the example:
Then copy the List.xml, voice-large.png and voice-small.png to flash:Desktops/320x212x16/

3. allow tftp-server file access on CME
tftp-server flash:Desktops/320x212x16/List.xml
tftp-server flash:Desktops/320x212x16/voice-large.png
tftp-server flash:Desktops/320x212x16/voice-small.png

Check out the phone User Preference > Background image, and you will see the thumbnail image.  Choose it and you can change to the new background image!

For UCM, you can use the JQ Phone iPhone app to use the iPhone image to IP phone background!  Check it out here:
