*8 not picking up ringing phone

I installed the FreePBX 2.7 and everything else seems working fine. But pickup ringing extensions using *8 not working. I checked *8 is enabled, ** also enabled in the feature code. (however, from top meny bar, between panel and help, click on the recording and login, I don’t see *8 listed in that feature code listing).

In the chan_dahdi.conf, each channel also have callgroup=1 and pickupgroup=1 before the channel number. But I could not get any extension pickup. Looked the full log, it seems the extension trying to pick up always hangup by pbx.c.

What could be wrong with this one?
Thanks so much for your help!

When you want to pickup dial ** followed by the extention that is ringing.

**EXT can pick up the call, but *8 just gave busy signals. With many phones ring in similar tone, it is hard to tell which extension is ringing. It would be nice to have *8 to pickup any ringing phone.

Look at each of your extensions and insure the “Pickup Group” is set on them. They must be in the same pickup group for the *8 pickup to work.

Yes, I have them in the chan_dahdi.conf file already:
group=1
signalling=fxo_ks
context=from-internal
callerid=“name1”<7009>
mailbox=7009
callgroup=1
pickupgroup=1
channel => 1
callerid=“my name”<7010>
mailbox=7010
callgroup=1
pickupgroup=1
channel => 2
callerid=“name3”<7011>
mailbox=7011
callgroup=1
pickupgroup=1
channel => 3
callerid=“name4”<7012>
mailbox=7012
callgroup=1
pickupgroup=1
channel => 4

You can see them all in the same callgroup and also in the same pickupgroup. I add them all in the same queue, from large to small ring in the liner order. I can hear them ring when call coming. From tar - f /ver/log/asterisk/full, I can see each extension in turn being rang. But *8 immediately got a busy tone. From the log I provided, it showed when DAHDI/2-1 trying to pick up the call ringing at DAHDI/1-1, pbx.c actually called macro “hangupcall”.

Since this is a feature has been there for serveral version, I am sure there is something wrong with my configuration somewhere.
