We need a way to disable the call waiting beep as it causes a distraction while on conference calls.

If your at a ringing phone or that number is dialed directly I'm not sure what the cure for that would be. if on a conference call using a polycom conference phone that wouldn't be programmed to ring would seem to be the best idea I could come up with.

My employer uses the Yealink W52P cordless phone.  When the phone beeps to signal an incoming call it makes me want to throw my phone!  It interrupts the phone conversation that I am having and hurts my ear.  This happens multiple times a day.  Please remove this feature from this phone or allow it to be disabled.

This would be great to be able to disable it. It happens with the softphones too and our reps get annoyed when they are on a call and the call waiting beeps. So much that I had to switch it so they do not get incoming calls on their softphones anymore. They also complain that it hurts their ears

Re-upping this as I am getting similar complaints from my users. 99.9999% softphone users, want me to turn it down and still don't have a good solution.

This is the first item I found related to this issue.  Not to be contrary but our users are complaining that is it too soft.  Is there a place to adjust it that I'm overlooking?

Hey Forrest, there is no place to adjust the volume level for the beep
