Note: The firmware fix needed to handle the enrollment flow described below has been deployed and the workarounds are no longer needed
For customers who require desk phones and conference room phones to make and receive audio calls or join meetings, Microsoft Teams provides a growing portfolio of devices that can be purchased from our Teams Marketplace. For Teams phones including the Yealink T56A/T58A/CP960 and the Crestron Flex series IP phones that run on Android 5.x or later, there may be specific configurations that need to be enabled in the customer's tenant for the phones to successfully enroll into Intune.

We are actively pursuing a fix from the firmware to handle this enrollment flow. Once the fix has been published to the Microsoft Device Management solution and devices have been updated, neither of these workarounds would be necessary regardless of whether the three factors above are all true.
Intune allows creating device compliance policies in the tenant for the Android-based devices accessing organizational data. These policies are applied to user accounts and currently do not provide the ability to distinguish device types on the same operating system (eg: Desk phones vs conventional mobile devices phones). Tenant administrators might need to provide exceptions to user accounts for Teams IP phones to complete sign in.
