802.1x MDA LLDP Disabled on Switch (3750) but detected on phone?

I have been playing around with 802.1x and some IP phones.  The test senario we have is that LLDP is globally disabled on the switch and enabled on the phone.  When the phone boots up a non-LLDP enabled device is allowed to use the data vlan to boot and learn (via DHCP) the voice vlan.

We found that if LLDP is disabled on the switch it still detects LLDP on the phone and blocks the LLDP enabled phone from using the data vlan.  This causes the phone to "hang" waiting for DHCP.

Turning LLDP off on the switch port did not seem to help as the switch tests for LLDP reguardless and then blocks access to the data vlan.  It seems like *if* LLDP is disabled on the switch it should treat all devices as non-LLDP devices and allow the use of the data vlan.  Even if the device (IP Phone) is capable of LLDP.

Turned out that this was

Turned out that this was being caused by not having a valid DATA vlan set (leaving it in vlan 1).  It looks like with MDA you cannot assign the data VLAN the phone will use to boot in a Radius reply.  It has to be assigned manually?

Is there another way to tell the switch to allow the phone on data vlan 20 for a short period of time?
