 Teams dial pad is missing - 5 items to check!

In my personal experience even you Move users (Move-CsUser) it doesnt mean it will be all activate in the Microsoft Teams backend. It will take time to replicate microservices and sometimes it goes up to 24hrs. 

Following 4 items are important  
- Phone system license attached with the user 
- SfB Online Plan 2 License 
 - Hosting provider change to 
 - CsOnlineVoicePolicy is assigned to the user or calling plan



How to check this using PowerShell, Connect to Teams using PowerShell and 
Get-CsOnlineUser -identity <> | ft *LineUri, HostingProvider, EnterpriseVoiceEnabled

In my personal experience make sure above items are in checked. 

and addition to above items you can check this tool too - Dial pad in missing in Teams - Microsoft Teams | Microsoft Docs

Teams Calling | Number porting diary - Day 2

Find the LOAs for Teams Calling migration

Following URL will be the listed every LOA and LOA format will be different from each market/country and also requirement will be different from telco to telco.

 Phone number management for Canada - Microsoft Teams | Microsoft Docs

This article will have all the LOA for Subscriber Numbers (DID), Service Numbers (AA, CQ) and Toll-free. 
When you submit a LOA it will be important to filled it correctly and include correct information to reduce number rejections from the telco. In this case it will be Microsoft TN support team (PTN) team (which mention in my previous article). 
- BTN (Billing Telephone Number) mentioned in the ER (Equipment Record) or  CSR (Customer Service Record). 
- Account Number can be found on the bill or ER/CSR
- Signatory Name of the person of the organization and this can be change when person is left organization via direct email from the client to respective telco. 
- Service Address mentioned correctly (it can be multiple service address)
- Company Name without a mistake not even a dot :)  

I got many LOA rejected for very simple things but it is not simple because its purely security purpose they validate those.

ER - Term mostly used by Canada telecom providers/ISP

Go to Active Directory Server (AD) > AD Domains and Trusts 


Right click on top Active Directory Domains and Trust > UPN Suffixes and Add the UPN you required 

Once you save above settings. When you try to create users you able to see that. 

for DNS zone we will be creating new zone under this name
