BLF on Mitel SIP phones

Posted:Fri 14 of Jan, 2011 (12:58 UTC)
Hi Guys,
I need some help configuring BLF buttons on a Mitel SIP phone. I am using Asterisk and I have so far added the following to the extension.conf file:

 exten => 508,hint,SIP/508

and added "subscribecontext=BLF_Group_1 " to the individual extension configuration in sip.conf.

When I run the "core show hints" command I get the result:

Registered Asterisk Dial Plan Hints
508@BLF_Group_1 :SIP/508 State:Idle Watchers 1

When I make a call I do not notice the State:Idle change so I am assuming that means I have not configured the extension.conf file correctly. Can anyone shed some light on this for me please?
