I’ve been doing my own testing so can add some more information to my
initial problem.

I have set up my phone to use hints/subscriptions for the purpose of BLF
Call A comes in and is answered by User 1
Call B comes in and is left ringing
User 1 uses a BLF programmed button on a snom phone to call user 2
User 2 answers and accepts the call
User 1 presses transfer on their phone
Call B (which still has not been answered) is transferred to User 2 and
not call A which stays on hold!

If I do the same as above but press hold and dial the extension for user
2 and then press transfer call A is transferred to user 2 which is what
I think we all would consider to be the correct behaviour.

Has anyone ever come across this and found a reason (and possibly
solution) for this issue?

    Have you tried using features.conf file blind and attended transfers ? Does
    it work ?
    Have you tried using a non-Snom phone ?
