I am having a devil of a time with this phone. All issues better be due to my ignorance than firmware…
I bought a brand new 7960 that had MGCP firmware ( for CCM ). I succesfully upgraded to SIP 8.2 and now have the option to “unlock config” at #9.
However, it now asks me for a password. I tried pretty much everything I could think of but I don’t even know if I’m writing ‘cisco’ in there. The admin guide says “press the key once for a, several times to scroll through the available letters/numbers”. Well that just doesn’t happen for me. If I press the key twice, two stars will appear!
Please help a newbie…show me how to enter “cisco” properly in there.
Note: I also hard-resetted the phone to make sure it comes back to default password ( used the # & 123456789*0# procedure )
