Blackberry version 5.2 IP Phone User Manual

Functional changes
The following table lists the functional changes for BlackBerry Mobile Voice System 5.2.
Item Description
Call forwarding If the BlackBerry MVS administrator enables call forwarding, a BlackBerry MVS user
can forward incoming BlackBerry MVS calls to an internal extension or an external
phone. This feature is not available if your organization routes call through a SIP
Optional ANI Numbers
Available for Identifying
BlackBerry MVS Calls list
If you are configuring your organization's BlackBerry MVS for PBX-initiated calling, you
can define optional ANI numbers. Some wireless networks that allow roaming might
not support the additional calling party number field. You specify additional numbers
in this list for PBX trunks that route calls to BlackBerry devices. The BlackBerry MVS
Client uses a combination of the caller identification number and the numbers in the
Optional ANI numbers list to identify BlackBerry MVS calls.
Roaming status and
network name in CDR
When you generate a CDR report you can now see if users were roaming and the name
of the network that they were on.
BlackBerry MVS Only
Calling update
You can turn off MVS Only Calling for incoming or outgoing calls when a user is roaming
or is not roaming.
Validation of caller
identification for PBX-
initiated calls
During normal call setup some wireless networks might alter the number in the calling
party number field of the INVITE. If the BlackBerry MVS Client does not recognize the
calling party number in a PBX-initiated call it will reject the call because it is expecting
the calling party number to be the Caller Identification Number that you have set in
the MVS Console. To avoid this, you can permit the BlackBerry MVS Client to ignore
the entry in the calling party number field of the INVITE. When you do this, the
BlackBerry MVS Client considers the call to be from the PBX and accepts the call. When
this feature is enabled, users cannot move calls from Voice over Wi-Fi to Voice over
Mobile or move calls from Voice over Mobile to Voice over Wi-Fi.
The device can fall back to
use the no data coverage
number to make outgoing
If you select the "Device can use the no data coverage number to make calls when the
network is experiencing congestion" option, you must also type a phone number in
the No Data Coverage Number field on the BlackBerry MVS Server page in the MVS
Console. When the PBX takes too long to initiate an outgoing call, the BlackBerry device
will use the no data coverage number to initiate the call. This option is enabled by
default, however your organization might not need to use it for several reasons:
Your organization's data calls set up successfully
You do not want to disable No Data Calling across the entire product suite
BlackBerry device-initiated calling charges are not acceptable
You do not want your organization's users to fallback to a no data call
