Any ideas on how to DISABLE "Press 1 to accept call" while using Mobility 8.x???
I've gone thru the Mobility Router settings with a fine tooth comb and the only setting refering to DTMf in User options is set to NONE, but I have 2 users, one with IPHONE 5 and one with IPHONE 6 PLUS (this one was working correctly until a recent update to phone) where they have to press one to answer every call. I've check SW Director as well for the "Additional Phone" and External Assignment and all are set just to "Answer Phone" to accept call.

In v8.0 the only place I see it can be set in is the >Groups>[modify-group]>Device Options> 'Cellular Call Answer Confirmation' There are three options (None = just answer when I answer the phone; DTMF = 'Ent Call press 1' ; IVR Say or press 1.

(Maybe, Kinda, Sort of Related) We also learned that users need to ignore the call if they want it to drop into their office voicemail. If they decline the call it ends up in their cell phone voicemail.

Turns out Ext user profile had "External Assignment" also enabled - which overides the Mobility when enabled.
