Quote from: M105 on January 27, 2017, 11:27:49 AMHaving 35,000 more views than the next highest topic is no accident. A better analogy would be people stopping at a new car lot to see if a particular model had the features they want. All these views are not just from forum members, but more likely Google searches. The numbers don't lie and Obihai should pay attention. There is a lot of legacy pulse dial equipment still in service including millions of older alarm systems. This is an option that could be added with a firmware update without any negative effects. It should be done.

The SLIC used here does not support pulse dialing. It's not a software issue. It's not a device driver issue. It is a hunk of silicon that performs a bunch of very specific tasks autonomously, and you communicate with it via a high-level API.

Quote from: M105 on March 08, 2015, 08:23:20 AMSupport rotary pulse dialing which is still part of the analog telephone standards. This could be made optional in the phone line setup. Telephone collecting is gaining popularity worldwide and having an ATA other than the Grandstream models which support pulse dialing would be great and likely very easy to implement in firmware. Users with older pulse dialing alarm systems would also probably appreciate being able to drop their PSTN lines.Better yet, provide the ability to dial * and # with the dial hold feature of this device. http://www.dialgizmo.com/ Having that built into the Obihai ATA would provide great value to many users of collectable phones since having to add one almost doubles the cost of the Obi200 alone.

Quote from: Lavarock7 on February 08, 2019, 10:55:33 PMI guess it comes down to this...Since home wired telephone service is declining every year and rotary dial even less, many of us realize that a company is not going to invest money in what is really a hobby project.The phone company started out as rotary and then spent considerable money I hear adjusting their ESS (Electric Switching System) to still handle rotary while trying to get people to convert to touchtone (TM).Rotary dial services started in 1878.While there are still rotary phones out there parts and replacements are getting harder to find. It is like Polaroid 35 mm film, pay phones and VRCs, diminishing in popularity.As you may notice, this forum is NOT visited by Polycom (nor Obi) people. The OP should ship posting here and directly call and ask the company if they will fund his project. My guess is that call will stop any more debate :-)We are just suggesting that the posts here are falling on deaf ears.
