Is it possible to restrict calling PSTN numbers from Lync mobile client, even though user is enabled for Enterprise Voice ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to restrict calling PSTN numbers from Lync mobile client, even though user is enabled for Enterprise Voice ? 

    The idea is to allow Enterprise Voice enabled users to make PSTN calls only via Desktop Clients only.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

  • You will need to set a mobility policy.

    Set-CsMobilityPolicy -Identity “site:Redmond” –EnableIPAudioVideo $False

    Note: Replace "Redmond" with your site name.

    When set to False, prohibits the user from making Lync voice calls using the
    mobile device by removing the dial pad option from the Lync client. The default
    value is True, meaning that VoIP calls are allowed.

  • Hello Gautam,

    In addition to what Kevin said, don't forget to disable "Call via work" for this policy as well.

    Call via work is the feature that if enabled will allow mobile users to make PSTN calls through your PBX.

    So if you really want to block all PSTN calls your command will look like this;

    Set-CsMobilityPolicy -Identity “site:Redmond” –EnableIPAudioVideo $False -EnableOutsideVoice $False
