Hello

Can someone advise on how to change the name on my phone 7941 Cisco so when I call out people can see my name?

The display name at the right top corner on the phone
Example:
Time and date                                            Name displayed
12:04p 15/01/13                              Nick [I would like to change this name to Mark]

Thanks very much

Is this callmanager or callmanager express?  Also, are you talking about when you call internally or call externally?

CME you do it at the DN level.

ephone-dn  1  dual-line
 number 1234
 label Reception x1234
 description Reception
 name Reception
 call-forward busy 5555
 call-forward noan 5555 timeout 10

"label" is what the display shows on your phone
"name" is the caller id display

I would change both, and also adjust the description.

Hello everyone

Sorry it took a while to get back but had an emergency to take care of.

I only want to change it on the phone itself. I don't have access to the router. Can I change the label on the phone itself or do I have to contact the administrator in charge of the router configurations?

Thanks for all the help!!!

You'll need to contact your admin.

Can only be changed from the router itself.

Thanks very much for clearing that up. I do know how to change it in the router but I do not have access so I will contact the admin tomorrow and get it changed.
