I have just raised a support ticket for this as it appears the features are now all Live now.
It doesn't appear to be fixed yet. We still see the Guid on incoming calls.

Should be fixed by now, could you please open a support ticket through online portal ?

Are you using Exchange Server or Exchange Online for UM, or using Cloud PBX?

Is anyone else getting emails for this?
