    The call waiting tone is generated locally by the device/client itself. Request @Kareem Rifaat to comment on this.

    Business/Dev team, why is there no response to this? Please feel free to beep the phone, or place a pop up within the Webex App, but stop beeping the headset. Please realize who is paying for this system, and develop for the actual users of it.

    Need an option to disable the beep when a call comes in without turning call waiting off all together.

    Users are annoyed with the beeping in the ear for the new call waiting alert. Please make a setting to turn the beep off.

    Either allow in the desk phone settings to disable the beep or allow the user to turn the beep volume down.
