More than 10 telephones connected to a shared mailbox

We have a shared mailbox, where more than 10 users are connected, and most of these users also want this mailbox on their telephone.
I have changed the EASMaxDevices and the EASMaxConcurrency to 50, but i am still unable to connect an extra phone, i tried with the specific users iphone aswell as with my own, but with no luck.

All phones are connected with the shared mailbox user, in this case its called emergency.
I do receive the "you have 10 phone partnerships out of the maximum allowed 10 partnerships" email, but no other emails is visible on the phone.
I have created a new throttling policy and applied that policy to the mailbox, and this policy has the EASMaxDevices and EASMaxConcurrency set to 50.
Most of the other settings has been set to $null just like the default throttlingpolicy.

So why can i not connect an extra phone to the mailbox, when the device and concurrency has been set to more than 10?

why don't you use a public mailbox? the maximum 10 devices is a PER USER limit.

It was already setup this way in the company i joined, so i don't believe it is something that will be changed

I understand it is 10 devices PER USER, but the "shared mailbox" is setup as if it was a user, and then other users get full access and send as permissions, unless it is not required.

So we want to be able to go over the 10 devices limit on this one mailbox, but i can't seem to figure out how to do so.

I also thought "How about EWS?", but then also quickly noticied you can't set any amount of devices for EWS.
what does the 'isvalid'  field say for the throttle policy?

If you want to know the ObjectState is

ObjectState : Unchanged
Hmm. should work in theory then. Have you only just applied the policy or has it been there overnight a little?
I wouldn't expect it to have to wait for any overnight management processing to be activated but no harm in waiting or giving the appropriate services a restart to make sure the new setting is active.

I believe this was created before the weekend, but you bring up a good point, i will try to look at it again friday.

The services hasn't been given a restart, just because the other users will lose their exchange for a while, but i will see if i can speak to one from our operations team and ask them at what time would this be best to have it done.
lunch hour might be good or come in 1/2 hour early before the shift changes.
let us know what happens. no harm in trying a service restart just to be sure.
