Multicast Page Button (Paging)

Multicast Page Button (Paging)

We just implemented the Multicast paging on our 4.0.4 version phones.  The feature works fine when the phone is in an idle state.  However, when in off hook, or hold, when you would usually use the Paging function, there is no Key.


Is there a way to change this behavior without adding a EFK soft key.  Or, has this been corrected in later versions of the software?


following an earlier post, I was able to add the soft key using the $FPage$ action.  However, this is a bit of a hack since the button is there by default when the feature is activated.  We added our soft key to just the Dialtone, and Hold statuses and used the precede =1 tag so that our new key would appear close to where the default would have been. 


Thank you
