Does anyone have experiences they could share, with creating a Teams phone using a Wi-Fi only Android or iOS phone in kiosk mode?

I do not have experience with Teams specific. But I have some experience with Android kiosk.
You have the option to use single of multi app kiosk.
I would recommend to use a multi-app kiosk, because the single app currently has a bug that allows you to exit the kiosk.

Here is a good guide: https://www.robinhobo.com/how-to-configure-an-android-device-in-multi-app-kiosk-mode-with-microsoft-...

Hi @Nathan Hartley, I was wondering if you made any progress with this?

@Vitor PereiraNo. Unfortunately, priorities have shifted. I'll try to remember to post an update, if ever I can get back to this project.

@Vitor Pereira did you go down this rabbit hole? I have attempted this with about an 80% success rate on the Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro, but the one thing I need to work, inbound calling, doesn't. So, success is really 0%... The phone rings, but only presents the inbound call screen if the device is on and Teams is open. Otherwise, you cannot answer the call.

 

I'm at my wits end right now and would do anything for help/advice.
