How to enable BLF call pickup on VVX 601?

Hi All,

This is a quick question regarding BLF call pickup.  I have been following below FAQ but so far not successful (Whenever call comes in, "Incoming call" window pops up, but it goes to voicemail when "Pickup" button is pressed.  I noticed this is because the default value of call.directedCallPickupString is *97, which is the default voicemail feature code of FreePBX.  I changed the value, I placed notifycid=yes in sip.conf, but so far not luck.


The above FAQ is generated on Nov.4th, 2011, I am wondering whether any updated version of the documents are available regarding BLF call pickup.


Any suggestion would be highly appreciated!

Many thanks in advance,

Hello @domosute,


welcome back to the Polycom Community.


The quoted FAQ has enough troubleshooting information in there for you or others to look at any of your logs.


The next step would be to open a ticket.

In order to raise a support ticket you need to work with your Polycom reseller as they need to do this for you.

End Customers are unable to open a ticket directly with Polycom support.

If this is some sort of an Internet discounter providing your MAC address or your Polycom devices serial will enable us to look up who would be able to support you. This may not be who you purchased the Polycom device from.

If the unit is no longer within warranty please be prepared to Pay Per Incident / PPI. This is all outlined in detail here
