You did not show your full config so I couldn't see if you had more than 1 dn configured for each ephone.  Full consult transfers require 2 channels in a nutshell which sort of explains why blind xfer is working and not full consult xfer.

Alternatively, you could reconfigure your phones to use dual line parameters and this would take care of it.

instead of:  ephone-dn
use:  ephone-dn dual-line
This will give you 2 lines on your ephone dn.  Take a look at the following link and scroll down thru the tutorial on ephone and it will provide you with a visual presentation on the difference:

Thanks!!! Do I have to change all the ephone-dn one by one or is it possible to do it all at the same time?
