    Hi! 
     
    I have a phone model 7912 which is out of sale and support. I had a problem with displaying a russian language at this model. I had solved it by changing an output xml encoding from UTF-8 to windows-1251. But now i am run into another problem:
     
    1. I send an CiscoIPPhoneMenu object to phone
    2. Item in this menu contains a QueryStringParam with russian symbols. Example:

      <MenuItem>
        <Name>Второй</Name>
        <URL>QueryStringParam:param27=Второй</URL>
      </MenuItem>
    3. User select this item and submit it.
    4. Server receive url with param: '&param27=??????'.

     
    I think i can solve this problem in two ways:
     
    1. Change phone encoding. But i dont find any way to do this.
    2. Try to apply URL encoding to QueryStringParam.
     
    Preferred method, of course, change phone encoding. Is this possible?

    I sounds like you are looking for a Russian locale installer, such as here for UCM 7.1: http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/release.html?mdfid=282421166&flowid=5328&softwareid=282074333&release=7.1.%285.1300-1%29&relind=AVAILABLE&rellifecycle=&reltype=all
     
    If that doesn't correct the issue, then there is possibly a defect, and as an EOL device unfortunately you will need to explore a workaround to somehow encode/embed the extended character data
