The feature you need DSS/BLF is available in CCM 5.x (and later). Unfotunately, not in any earlier versions of CCM. So you have the either/or choice that you have seen. Either configure the Button as a Shared Line (to see the status) or as a Speeddial for quick Transfers :(
In CCM 5.x this is a traditional BLF (Busy Lamp Field) which is used to monitor On/Off Hook, Busy/Idle conditions on users phones, as well as having a Speeddial functionality for fast dialing and Transfers.These keys can't be used to answer actual calls.
