I am using freephoneline for free Canadian calling areas and google for non free and possibly US calling. Also freephoneline for other international calls.
This is the dial plan I am looking at using and I would like some input if it is correct it is as follows.
(911|310xxxx|1800xxxxxxx|204xxxxxxx|250xxxxxxx|289xxxxxxx|306xxxxxxx|403xxxxxxx|587xxxxxxx|416xxxxxxx|418xxxxxxx| 450xxxxxxx|506xxxxxxx|514xxxxxxx|519xxxxxxx|604xxxxxxx|613xxxxxxx|647xxxxxxx| 705xxxxxxx|709xxxxxxx|778xxxxxxx|780xxxxxxx|807xxxxxxx|819xxxxxxx|867xxxxxxx| 902xxxxxxx|905xxxxxxx|011xx.|xx.|(Mipd)|[^*#]@@.|<**1>(1xxxxxxxxxx|<1>[2-9]xxxxxxxxx)
This is on my default calling line The local area codes for city are 403 and 587
911 is for e911 service the 310 is for some utility services, 1800 is for canadian 800 number calling.
I don't know if I have set up the US and other country dialing properly.
Also, I copied this string from the default dial plan |(Mipd)|[^*#]@@.|
What exactly is this?
If anyone has some phone numbers that can be used for testing, please post them.
I finally found a thread explaining some of this stuff.http://www.obitalk.com/forum/index.php?topic=34.0
I changed my dial plan, still not sure if it is correct it is now as follows.
Instead of listing the area codes, I use [2-9]xxxxxxxxx for all my 10 digit local free area dialing and <**1>1xxxxxxxxxx for out of area calls
[2-9]11SO is supposed to cover 311,411,911 etc but only 911 seems supported by my provider .
because I still have a pots line and 911 should default to that but have not tested it yet...don't really want to phone 911, if not, will have to add that in
Apparently, |(Mipd)|[^*#]@@.| Is for direct obi number calling
What would be the difference between using |<**1>1xxxxxxxxxx| and using |1xxxxxxxxxx:Msp1| ?
Would this be better?
I know I have not gotten any responses on this yet, but would appreciate some input/advice.
My voip provider does strange things when caller id is blocked.
my concern is if call id block is active when calling 911.
my provider uses a northern 911 service which will not see my location if call id is blocked.
how do I disable it for 911 calls?
I have been trying to do a replacement string with no success.
Codes for unblock are *82 and *68(one time)
<911:*68 S1 911> which does not work
i have been using my cell number to test with and replacing the second 911 with my cell number.
How do I actually accomplish this?
