Press # For VOIP Line

Discussion in 'UK VOIP' started by Mr Muffin Top, Sep 26, 2007.

  1. I have a Linksys SPA3102 and use VoipTalk for incoming calls and
    VoipDiscount for outgoing. At the moment I have a separate phone for VOIP
    calls and PSTN calls as my wife dislikes to use the VOIP system as any echo
    irritates her. The echo is only minimal and mainly when she calls the far
    east.

    My calling plan is this

    (<#,:>xx.<:mad:gw0>|<1471><:mad:gw0>|<:441625>xxxxxx<:mad:gw1>|01xx.<:mad:gw1>|02xx.<:mad:gw1>|00xx.<:mad:gw1>|08xx.<:mad:gw0>|999<:mad:gw0>|07xx.<:mad:gw0>)

    To be honest I have never really understood it but built it up by asking
    advice and cutting and pasting! it works fine.

    At the moment calls via the VOIP phone go out via VOIP unless I press # in
    which case they go out via PSTN. Is it possible to reverse this so that
    calls by default go out via PSTN and if I press # go out via VOIP. This way
    my wife would be happy and I could get rid of one of the phones on my desk
    and use VOIP for my calls.

    Not checked, but something like this:

    (<#,:>xx.<:mad:gw1>|0<:mad:gw0>)

    Actually I think I meant:

    (<#,:>xx.<:mad:gw1>|.<:mad:gw0>)

    Ok - works - however with my old dialing plan if I dialed a local 6 digit
    number via VOIP it added the area code to the number as
    |<:441625>xxxxxx<:mad:gw1>|

    If I add this back into the dialing plan you suggested
    (<#,:>xx.<:mad:gw1>|.<:mad:gw0>|<:441625>xxxxxx<:mad:gw1>) Then if I dial a 6 figure
    number on the phone it goes out via VOIP by default

    Change the gw1 in <:441625>xxxxxx<:mad:gw1>) to @gw0 I believe gw0 is the PSTN.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Yes if I do that that 6 figure local numbers go
    out via the PSTN - that is not the problem as it defaults to PSTN now so
    they would anyway. I want to dial a 6 figure number and it go out via PSTN
    by default but if I Press # and a 6 figure number it goes out via VOIP -
    thanks for your help

    (<#,:>xx.) will send calls via the VoIP provider configured on Line 1,
    if you prefix the call with #

    However, (<#,:><:441625>[2-9]xxxxxS0) may be more use - it doesn't
    cater for full national dialling over VoIP, though.

    So, I think you could also include (<#0,:><:44>xx.)....although it is
    late & I'm no expert....and the two elements may clash with one
    another...
