    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!
