Dispite I have turn off the sounds for the New Message waiting, the backlight of the screen turns on everytime the SUBSCRIBE method is refreshed.
As far as I know, there is no option to disable this behaviour, right?
I have raised a feature request stating that the New Message Waiting should be only triggered if the new messages are bigger than the current value of messages.
I have moved your post as it was not related to the originally replied post about the audible MWI indication.
A feature request will be worked on by the relevant team and any improvements that seem viable to enhance the current behavior may be implemented in future software versions.

@Joao, what is the JIRA reference as I did not find any post referring to an feature request from yourself.
@Luke, as previously explained I do not see this as a bug as this is the current behavior as working as designed.
Searching our JIRA database I only found 1x more post requesting to change this behavior and I can only assume that because of this the level of attention considering changing this current behavior has not yet made it important enough to be considered as a software enhancement.
I have seen that you followed up on your original JIRA request and this will trigger an Email to the product management team and I will in addition email them as well.
New Software releases as explained before will not change this either as it is currently not classed as a bug.
Thanks for responding but honestly, I have worked with a lot of different SIP phones from various vendors including Cisco, Aastra, Snom, Yealink, and even Grandstream. NONE of them react this way to receiving the SIP NOTIFY with "application/simple-message-summary" message. Polycom is the only one that chooses to illuminate (wake up) the display when receiving these messages.
It's been a long time, but I was just reading the release notes for UC 5.0.0 and saw something that looks very promising !!
I have not tested or confirmed this yet, but will be doing so shortly -- hopefully my prayers have been answered!
Just wanted to update: I have applied the 5.0.0 firmware to a VVX 500 and confirmed that it does (finally) stop the constant illumination of the display when receiving MWI messages from an Asterisk server. Wonderful! Now, if only they would release a version of the UC software containing this fix for the older generation of SoundPoint IP endpoints (IP331/335/550/650). Polycom- please!
Hmm not sure why but this bug seems to have come back as of UC 188.8.131.5268
Any reason that might have happened?
welcome back to the Polycom Community.
As previously explained this is not seen as a bug and has always been like this.
UCS 5.0.0 introduced a new parameter:
Above can be used to disable the phones standard behavior to illuminate the display when a MWI NOTIFY message is received.
This is not yet included in the UCS 4.0.5 or UCS 4.1.6 branch of the software.
