Cisco 7936 firmware flash



I have a recently purchased a Cisco 7936 from ebay seems a original phone and was picked up for a silly price.


Does anyone know if it is possible to flash the Polycom firmware for the equivalent phone model to the 7936 as I would ideally prefer the phone to be SIP


Any help would be gratefully appreciated


With Thanks

Re: Cisco 7936 firmware flash

Hello Richard,


welcome to the Polycom Community.


I have moved your Post to here.


The 7936 is manufactured by Polycom for our Partner Cisco exclusively for usage with their CUCM platform.


Please raise this issue with Cisco as the Software on this unit is provided by them but as far as I am aware you are not able to flash a SIP Software on this unit as the unit is designed to work with their propitiatory SCCP Protocol.


Best Regards
