This parameter, whether configured in res_digium_phone.conf for DPMA or in the blf_contact_group setting in XML, must be set to the group_name of the contacts group for which you wish subscriptions to be made.  Subscriptions cannot be made to more than one group_name.  Subscriptions will not be made if the blf_contact_group parameter is undefined. If you have skipped this step, you will not have blinking lights.  The use of Smart BLF capabilities is not independent of this setting; this setting must still be used for deployments using Smart BLF BLF Items lists.

If the Smart BLF capabilities of the phone are being used, whereby a BLF Items sheet is being loaded onto the phone, then each and every contact to be placed on a Rapid Dial key must be explicitly defined.  If no BLF Items sheet is loaded onto a phone, as-is the case with phones using firmware prior to 1.4.0, then the order of the contacts in this group is important. In that case, the named contacts here fill in the BLF-keys in the same order as given in the xml, and those contacts are subscribed to, in order.
