I tried to warn you, didn't I? :)

The phones themselves are nice, when used with an Avaya PBX. What I have
seen is that these phones are really dumb themselves and need a decent
PBX that does the smartstuff via proprietary interfaces (H.232
gatekeeper like IPOffice or whatever they use with the SIP based
Communication Manager)

There is some intelligence in parsing the 46xxsettings file, but AFAIK
you need the CRAFT menu to do this (apart from MAC adresses).

My advise: sell these phones, any SIP device you can buy with the
proceeds is more intelligent when used with Asterisk.
