Call progress tones VVX411 and 500

I am trying to set up UK dial tone on the above phones as detailed in the following link :-

 

https://community.polycom.com/t5/VoIP-SIP-Phones/FAQ-How-can-I-change-my-Dial-Tone-or-Call-Progress-...

 

On the VVX500 the UK dial tone works as expected but on the VVX411 the dial tone sounds more like a number unobtainable tone, the sections used in the VVX500 provisioning file are the same as the ones used in the provisioning file for the VVX411.

 

is there something obvious like that possibly custom dialling tone isn’t an option on the VVX411?

Hello @Telecomuser ,

 

Welcome to the Poly Community.


Good info for the volunteer here would be the currently used software version and if you have yet compared a backup from both phones to check that the same parameters are being used.

 

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.

Best Regards

Hi Steffen,

 

I haven’t had chance to come back with the details,of what software versions are on each phone yet.

 

I will be checking this later along with the relevant sections of code in the provisioning template on the PBX and the actually config the phone receives from the PBX and report back with my findings,

Both phones are on 5.9.6.2996 as this is the latest supported firmware available on the VVX500 so wanted to keep the firmware the same on both models.

Re: Call progress tones VVX411 and 500

Thanks Steffen,

 

I use notepad++ in he way you described.

 

I've discovered now that this problem only occurs when there is a voicemail message on the phone.

 

I suspect the cause is down to the following :-

<se.stutterOnVoiceMail="1">
</se.stutterOnVoiceMail>


I'm going to remove that from the config and see if it changes anything

@SteffenBaierUK

 

I’ve removed the stutterOnVoiceMail section and that still leaves the same issue of a continuous unobtainable like tone. Once the Voicemail message is deleted the call progress dial tone works as expected.

 

Also while testing on the VVX500 the same symptoms are occurring when a voicemail is left on that phone.

 

as it isnt down to the stutterOnVoiceMail could it be the message warning indication?
