CM 8.1 EC500 Issue.

CM 8.1 EC500 Issue.

CM 8.1 EC500 Issue.

When calling a deskphone with EC500 enabled it will ring the attached cell phone. Once in a while if the cell phone is answered on the first ring the cell phone will get disconnected and the desk phone will continue to ring, is there anything I can look at to help mitigate this from happening?

I though system-parameters coverage-forwarding page 2, but I do not see anything that would help in this situation??

RE: CM 8.1 EC500 Issue.

That's a new on for me. Typically, I see zero rings or delays reaching the mobile.

Still, maybe in a new config?

I don't know if the Confirmed Answer set to "y" would make a difference but it may be worth a try.

Of course, you could always tell the users to wait for two rings...

RE: CM 8.1 EC500 Issue.

Thanks for the reply! I was thinking about the 2 ring thing too!!

RE: CM 8.1 EC500 Issue.

What is actually causing this is the "Cellular Voice Mail Detection: timed (seconds): 4. This prevents a cell's voicemail from "answering" the call immediately. If you remove that though, then if the phone returns a busy signal or a cell's voicemail picks up the call will end the ringing on both sides as the call will be answered.

RE: CM 8.1 EC500 Issue.

Do confirmed answer. It's the one way that mostly guarantees the function and comes with the added benefit of being able to know when a call is ec500 vs direct to the mobile number.
Confirmed answer plays a dial tone to the end user, and they need to push any DTMF to answer ... or hang up and the call will go unanswered (likely coverage).
