The telco engineers are still struggling with this new switch, and I am not sure they understand or appreciate my urgency in getting this resolved!

I found this which may be helpful:  
This is controlled on the PBX object under the "CAlling Number / Connect Line ID Screening" option.  By default this is set to "Owned DN" which allow's only DID's, DISA's, and the PBX Object DN.  For customers that are forwarding calls through their PBX and request to pass the original calling number we typically change the option to "Valid Format".
