Disable green "line" lights on Cisco desk phone?

I'm using a Cisco IP Phone SPA508G.

There are eight green lights around the screen—four on the left, four on the right—that always appear to be lit. Is there any way to disable or turn off those lights? I'm  basically looking for no green lights by default, and only a light if the line is in use.

Thanks ahead of time.

Not sure but i think the lights are showing if something is assigned to them I only have 6 lit on my phone. I'm sure 2 will always have to be on your phone as those are the lines on the phone itself to make it actually work.

Hi Jamie, 

With the Cisco IP Phone SPA508G, if presence is activated, and the line is idle, it will always appear green-- there is not a way to turn it off and maintain the presence functionality.
