Remove Dial 911 from Lock Screen


I have the following scenario already happen twice and 911 showed up to the building.

Phone Model: VVX401  - Skype Version


1. User signs in with Skype username and password.

2. When phone is locked there are 2 options, Forgot and Call.

3. When a person clicks CALL it shows 911 and a DIAL button replaces the CALL one in the same location.

4. Is is possible to either

  • Remove the call button and just use the speaker one to make calls?
  • Add a different number instead of 911 to dial?
  • Remove 911 from the list after pressing call.

Thank you!

Hello @plateplus,


welcome to the Polycom Community.

The VVX Phones are 3PIP qualified from our Partner Microsoft so certain features or behaviors are requested by Microsoft.


The VVX Phone when locked:


  • Lifting the Handset will allow you to dial any number
  • Pressing the Loudspeaker Key will allow you to dial any number
  • Pressing the Call softkey will present a list controlled by the Skype for Business Server

If the lock feature is restricting your users simply disable it:
