hi David,

89XX and 99XX phones have different behaviour than 79XX phones  in selecting
lines when going offhook to initiate a new call.

79XX always selects the first line configured
89XX/99XX always selects the last used line

There is an enhancement request for this...

As a workaround you can use the use the configurable button 'all calls'.

Link for the configuration...

Hope this helps you!!
