Android Jabber Workaround for some unsupported phones:

  • set the CUCM security mode to “mixed-mode”. You can do this with the “utils ctl set-cluster mixed-mode”. There is no more need of e-token with a 10.0 release (don't know exactly since when, maybe even a 9.0)
  • activate CAPF and CTL Provider services
  • create a secure phone profile (authenticate is OK, port 5061 for SIP), assign it to the BOT device
  • set the CAPF parameter to “Install/upgrade” in the BOT device with a key size that matches the one you set in the secure phone profile

How to upload photos see ad

Cisco Jabber does not apply any modifications to enhance rendering for contact photos in GIF format.
As a result, contact photos in GIF format might render incorrectly or with less than optimal quality.
To obtain the best quality, use PNG format for your contact photos.
The optimum dimensions for contact photos are 128 pixels by 128 pixels with an aspect ratio of 1:1.
128 pixels by 128 pixels are the maximum dimensions for local contact photos in Microsoft Outlook.
