    It's for a Linksys PAP2 device with sipgate

    (*xx|<:0044121>[2-8]xxxxxxS0|<0:0044>[12]xxxxxxxxxS0|<0:0044>[58]00xxxx.|<0845:0044845>xxxxxx.|<0870:0044870>xxxxxx.|<07:00447>xxxxxxxxxS0|999S0
    |1xx.|09!|00!)


    breakdown:

    *xx

    two digit "*" numbers


    <:0044121>[2-8]xxxxxxS0

    prefix seven digit numbers, that start with the number 2 to 8, with 0044
    121 (Birmingham area code) and do not wait for more digits


    <0:0044>[12]xxxxxxxxxS0

    prefix 11 digit numbers, that start with 0 followed by 1 or 2, with
    0044, removing the starting zero, and do not wait for more digits

    should be 11 digits long, including STD code.


    <0:0044>[58]00xxxx.

    prefix freephone numbers, that begin with 0500 and 0800, with 0044,
    removing the starting zero


    <0845:0044845>xxxxxx.
    <0870:0044870>xxxxxx.

    same for 0845 and 0870 numbers


    <07:00447>xxxxxxxxxS0

    same for mobile numbers


    999S0

    emergency number


    1xx.

    any number beginning with 1 and at least two subsequent digits


    09!

    block all numbers starting with 09


    00!

    block all international numbers

    Looks good to me. Is 0808 still in use for freephone? You may want to
    include that.
    Here is mine for Manchester

    (<01:00441>x.|<08:00448>x.|<02:00442>x.|<03:00443>x.|<07:00447>x.|<:0044161>[2-9]xxxxxxS0|<0161:0044161
    >[2-9]xxxxxxS0|00x.|<11:00447823539???>|<12:00447501355???>|<13:00447729425???>|<14:00447732053???>)


    I have used the x. wildcard rather than explicitly fixing the digit length
    The 11 12 13 and 14 are simply speed-dials. I pefer to define these in the
    dialplan too.

    What about something like
    |<192:0044800100100>|
    for free directory enquiries?

    Looks OK to me.

    That'll catch 070 Personal Numbers as well (can be almost Premium Rate).

    You don't do anything about 03....

    What about 0844/0871, or 05... (I thinking of 056... numbers in particular)?

    What happens if a number doesn't match the pattern? You don't have a
    fallback route. (Or is there a default in the PAP2?)

    For 0844 could, should you wish, lump it with 0845:- <084:004484>[45]xx.
    In the above plan I don't see the point of putting in lots of 'x' and
    then ending with a dot. The same would be achieved with a lesser number.
    If it is known that a particular number type has a specific number of
    digits then represent those digits with the correct number of 'x' but
    don't add a dot to the end! I also think that the inclusion of S0 at the
    end, in most cases, makes no difference. You are best to include the
    correct number of 'x' and then it is known, implicitly, when the number
    being dialled is complete.

    I guess, if you wanted a default you would simply include xx. as the last
    pattern in the dial plan. That is always assuming that previous patterns
    are followed first. I think this is the case but I've not checked it as I
    usually have each 'field' unique. Personally I prefer not to have a
    default. I don't want to allow numbers to be dialled where I haven't
    decided on the LCR. If the number is foreign to the dial plan then,
    simply, I prefer that it doesn't get routed.
