If, as I understand it, the SPA is geared up to receive strings
starting with #0 and route them to gw0, inserting a pause, in the
phone, won't help.
Certainly, when accessing a voip network in the same way requires no
delay at all. It is the SPA that is doing the 'decoding'.
I have noticed, since setting up an SPA-3102, in conjunction with a
PSTN line, that there does seem to be a delay before the call is
routed. I guess that is due, in some part at least, to the DTMF that
will have to be sent by the SPA-3102. The SPA I set up recently routed
0800 and 0808 via PSTN. Dialling those numbers worked perfectly but
the connection, when compared to dialling via voip, was significantly
You could experiment a bit to try and pinpoint the problem.
What happens if you:-
1. include a comma after #0.
For example:

2.. try
Should call BT when #0 is dialled.

3. include a comma and S0..

Please report back with the results

Good! I was interested in your results using two commas - I've never
tried that one.

Yes. The answer to this one is, in your settings, set DTMF to 'INFO'
I think that this will cure it.
Thanks for the feedback!
