I'm pleased to announce I received my new 8700g on Friday! However, I think I may have found a bug...
The other night, I was working a high ticket at work on a conference bridge with several key cross-functional groups and our internal issue management group. Since the problem was caused by one of our partners, I was back and forth between my conference bridge and the vendor. Anyway, upon ending one call with the partner, I looked at my phone -- my first call was "On Hold". I proceeded to tell my roommate a long story involving one of the groups that was on the call. The issue moderator said "Mute... Mute..." so I looked at my phone. It was still "on hold", and the phone icon had a red X over it indicating it was muted. I said, "I'm muted, he's not talking to me..." and the moderator said, "No, Nuri, I'm talking to you." I resumed the call and muted it, and mute was working normally. Thankfully, I didn't use any naughty language.
Later that evening, I had a similar scenario... and before I could think about it, I said, "It's been one hell of a night." The issue moderator began laughing and said, "Nuri, you're right... it has been one crazy night." I proceeded to explain to the bridge that I may be plagued with a bug in the new BB.
So... I've duplicated the issue now. Anyone else notice this behavior from your 8700g? I'm running the T-Mo OS... and in the meanwhile, I'm being reeeeeeeeally careful with my mute and hold.
