    Hello, just installed a new S100 with a 19 IP phones. 15 Yealink T42S, 3 Yealink T46S and 1 Yealink T19P. The paging group is 6300. If I page from any phone that is part of the paging group, the page beeps and then just hangs up. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hi Guys, 

    This is solution for Tasso and  Bill. (Yealink phones)

    1 - Disable the call-waiting on the phone .

    By this, phone will ignore the page request for itself.

     

    2 - Keep call-waiting, and disable Intercom Barge.

    This makes the page request as a new call but not affect the current call.
