Paging/Auto Answer problems

Paging/Auto Answer problems



I am new  to Polycom phone administration and have an issue.  We recently moved to an IP phone system (3CX) from an old Nortel system.  For our managers we have Polycom VVX 410's and in the board rooms SoundStation IP 6000's.


The problem I am having with paging is that the phones are auto answering even when they have a call in progress.  It interrupts conference calls and all of the higher ups in the company.  We performed a firmware update on our cisco phones which added the feature to disable auto answer while on a call, is there anything like available that for the polycom phones.  If so does anyone have an example of how to use the feature i.e. Can it be enabled in the web interface somewhere or the in provisioning script?

Re: Paging/Auto Answer problems

Hello Carl,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

It is most likely a setting within your configuration or you are simply using a priority page group.


A standard Page acts like another call on the phone and simply waits until you select this. I priority Page would override the existing call and interrupt this.


Please ensure you are checking your web interface settings here: Settings > Paging/PTT Configuration.


For example ensure Accept While Busy is not enabled.
