Hi Charles, Unfortunately, no. I can only assume the firmware doesn't (for whatever reason) support this at the moment. If anyone from Cisco reads this thread, could I request that this feature be added in a new firmware version?

We've got a small SIP-based telephony setup centered around an Asterisk server. We had been using SPA942s, but when adding to the setup recently we chose to use the more recent SPA508G. These are sufficiently similar that most of the setup is now working correctly, but I'm running into one issue that I can't seem to resolve. The SPA942s had been configured so that when on a call pressing one of the configured line keys would perform a blind transfer to that number, and I can't seem to replicate this behaviour on the SPA508Gs. The new phone instead puts the current call on hold and speed-dials the configured extension, meaning that the user must perform an attended transfer. This means that the person receiving the transferred call does not see the actual originator's caller ID, which is an issue for us. Is there any way to resolve this? I can't see any reference to configuring this behaviour in the admin manual. For reference, the current line key extended function is as follows: fnc=blf+sd+cp;sub=102@$PROXY;ext=102;nme=102 (BLF, speed dial and call pickup all work as intended, except when attempting a transfer as above.)
