    I'm using Version, phone is able to detect calls coming in but when trying to access ldap through the phone's menu the phone is stuck at a "loading" screen. (ldap doesn't contain a lot of user, about 100 users but roughly 20-30 of those have phone numbers in them)

    I wonder if it has to do with the default 'telephone' field I've changed...

    ok I've solved the issue but I can't get the "ldap number filter" to work (doesn't show in the screenshot since it shows up on the new firmware)
