Max-dn, BLF, and order of speed dial buttons

On a 16 user UC520, there is a maximum of 88 dn's.

The presence service allows a maximum subscription of 100 up to max-dn.

This generates a log entry (bad range 100-88) - so a bit of a bug here.

In order to keep the subscribed BLF numbers down, users use BLF-speed-dials for local numbers and speed-dials for external ones.

Is there a way to influence the order they are displayed on the phone? By default speed-dials come 1st followed by BLF's. We'd like it the other way around, or better yet - mix and match the order.

AFAIK, there isn't any customization available for setting the order of speed-dials v/s BLF-speed-dials. I will check with the CUCME group whether there is an option or if they have something on the roadmap for this.

What would be just as good is the ability to increase the max-subscription under presence to something more than 100. Then I could define all the speed-dials as BLF even though the external ones wont have any presence information.

Max-subscriptions is a function of max-dn supported on a platform. On UC 520, the max-dns are set on a per SKU basis and so if you are using a 16-user system, it supports a maximum of 88 dns (due to this the max-subscriptions has an upper limit of up to a 100). On UC 540s, the max-dns are max'ed out at 300, so you will have a higher upper limit of max-subscription. I don't think there are any plans on changing this for UC 520 today.
