Recently, our soundstation ip7000 lost the ability to complete long distance calls. We go through a SIP PBX and are required to dial an "8" for an outside line. When we enter in the 8, then add the 1 and the area code and proceed to enter the rest of the number, the phone accepts the first 6 of the final 7 digits but doesn't show the final digit on the screen and doesn't complete the call. We have also found that when callers dial into the phone or if we call local numbers or internal extensions, we are unable to use the dialpad to repsond to any prompts. Is there a way to correct these problems?
welcome to the Polycom Community.
I have moved your post in the correct section.
Recently, our soundstation ip7000 lost the ability to complete long distance calls.
Did you make any changes to the settings of the SSIP7000?
Usually this post => here <= covers the digitmap
we are unable to use the dialpad to respond to any prompts.
Do you mean dialing into an automated system that waits for you to enter digits on the handset to access menus?

Please be aware that in order to activate/change some of the features a provisioning server is needed and your Polycom Reseller should be able to assist you with this.

Thanks for the reply, I was able to resolve the inability to dial out to long distance numbers, but I followed the link to the article "Phone unable to send DTMF to an IVR system' and I don't understand what it's trying to say. Is there somewhere that has a clearer explanation with steps to address the issue? DO I address the problem by changing a setting on the Polycom phone unit, or is the posting trying to tell me to modify our PBX?
The DTMF Issue is caused either by the wrong Payload type being send by the SSIP7000 to your SIP Server or using SIP Inbound rather than SIP Info as maybe expected by your SIP PABX.
Only the SIP PABX Support Team can tell you the answer to above and you will then need to change either the payload or the SIP method via a configuration file using a provisioning server as shown in the Post in the FAQ.
How to make these changes and how to setup a provisioning server is answered in the FAQ and usually the Polycom Reseller should be supporting you with this.
If they are unable to help feel free to contact Polycom Support but you may be charged a PPI (Pay per Incident) fee to provide you with specific detailed information.
