    This has been an ongoing problem ever since I u/g to the most recent firmware for our t28's (2.70.0.103). In the BLF field on the phone the (Phone > DSS Keys) the 'value' is saved as the extension and the 'extension' is saved as '*20*extension#'. When someone hits the BLF key it dials for example *20*22162216.

    I manually went in and removed the extra values from the 'extension' filed so it only read '*20*' and the 'value' files is the number of the extension. How do I set the provisioning up so that it correctly adds the values for the blf (value and extension) fields?

    On the Yealink T38 - value is just the extension xxxx, and under extension is *20*xxxx.
    And it works this way. It sounds like maybe a firmware error that it is dialing the value and extension both...

    When Ihit the BLF key, it just dials the extension xxxx. If the line is flashing (ringing) and I hit it it dials *20*xxxx. I have just confirmed this. So the values that 3cx is passing seem correct. It just seems the Yealink is doing something strange with it.

    However, I am on a slightly older firmware still - and not on the t28. Hopefully someone else can test this for you.

    The only way I got this to work (on 100+phones) was to log in to each and every phone via the ip address of the phone, upgrade the firmware of the phone, then Factory reset the phone. TBH I can't remember if the order was factory reset, then upgrade firmware or the other way around.

    I was looking at each of the provisioning templates for the phones and they actually had the wrong values in the BLF fields. What I did was go in to every phone extension in the 3cx Management console, went to the provisioning tab, and just clicked 'apply' (I didnt have to make any changes). I had the provisioning folder open in a separate window so I knew the template for each phone was being re-written. (when I clicked apply, I could see the template saved). I am referring to the specific template of the phone that has the MAC addy as the filename.

    I am not sure if all of these steps were necessary. I choose to do all of the steps because I knew they would work and I wouldnt have to go through 100+ phones again. You may find that only one of these steps are necessary.

    The factory reset wasa good idea when applying a new firmware in my opinion. The regeneration of templates is a pain in the backside for sure. Hopefully it will get better in v12.
