Troubleshooting VoIP and SIP on CME is pretty straightforward, but as with any feature on Cisco equipment, you need to know the magic commands that show the useful bits of information.
When phones register properly, they will generate console messages,
which you can see through Telnet or SSH if you’ve issued the
