    *found this with a Google....*


    Configure a Dial Plan

    The dial plan determines which outbound calls route over which network -
    normal BT line or the internet. I'm going to give you a call plan which
    routes operator, faults, emergency and freephone numbers over the BT
    line, routes local, national, mobile and international calls over the
    internet, and bans directory enquiries and premium rate numbers.

    Go to the SPA3102 configuration page and select Admin login - Advanced -
    Voice - Line 1.
    Under Dial Plan, change this to:
    Dial Plan: (100<:mad:gw0> | 999<:mad:gw0> | 112<:mad:gw0> | 151<:mad:gw0> |
    1471<:mad:gw0> | 0[58]0x.<:mad:gw0> | 00x.<:mad:gw1> | <0:0044>[12]x.<:mad:gw1> |
    <0:0044>[67]x.<:mad:gw1> | 084x.<:mad:gw0> | <087:004487>x.<:mad:gw1> |
    <:00441242>[2-8]x.<:mad:gw1> | 118! | 09!)
    (all on one line)

    You need to adjust this dial plan for your local numbers. Change the bit
    at the end, that says 00441242, to match your local home dialling code.
    I live in the Cheltenham area, so my local code is 01242 and the
    international version is 00441242. If you live in Birmingham, your local
    code is 0121 and you'd change it to 0044121 . If you live in London,
    your local code is 020 and you'd change it to 004420 . Make sure you
    don't change the chevrons or colon around it.
    Here's an alternative plan if you just want to route mobile,
    international numbers and non-geographic over the internet, and continue
    to have local and national landline numbers routed over BT. Basically
    the only difference is that we use gw0 instead of gw1 for 01, 02 etc.
    numbers.
    Dial Plan: (100<:mad:gw0> | 999<:mad:gw0> | 112<:mad:gw0> | 151<:mad:gw0> |
    1471<:mad:gw0> | 0[58]0x.<:mad:gw0> | 00x.<:mad:gw1> | <0:0044>[12]x.<:mad:gw0> |
    <0:0044>[67]x.<:mad:gw1> | 084x.<:mad:gw0> | <087:004487>x.<:mad:gw1> |
    <:00441242>[2-8]x.<:mad:gw1> | 118! | 09!)
    (all on one line)

    You can read more about customising your own call plan, for instance to
    route different numbers via different providers, by looking in the "SPA
    ATA Admin Guide" which can be obtained from the Linksys website, or
    directly from this Linksys FAQ page. They are similar to, but not the
    same as, POSIX regular expressions. There's also a lot of discussion on
    the Voxilla.com forums.

    Make lots of short, inexpensive test calls and check on your web-based
    VOIP account that they are going over the internet. If you have BT
    paperless billing, you can also check on BT.com that you aren't being
    charged for calls on BT.
    No, really, check that your calls are being routed correctly before
    making lots of lengthy international calls! It only takes a typo to
    change gw1 to gw0 and your calls will run up an expensive BT bill.
    If you do not already have Call Waiting with BT, then one way to check
    call routing is: Call a number that should route over the internet.
    Leave this call going. Then, at the same time, use your mobile to call
    your landline number. If it is engaged (busy), then you've done
    something wrong - it's calling via BT! If it rings, then it is working -
    and on the normal handsets you will hear a quiet "Call Waiting" beep in
    the background. Yup, the SPA3102 generates its own Call Waiting system!

    Try also sites like voxilla, voxalot

    http://forum.voxilla.com/cisco-linksys-sipura-voip-support-forum/

    http://forum.voxalot.com/

    There are a few more, but you "hit" them soon enough with Google
    searches....

    Maybe an other advise, using an DECT IP device like those of Siemens
    (Gigaset) make live much more easier, the SPA3102 has a lot of options,
    but if you don't need them........
    the SPA is also limited to one incoming account, while some DECT IP ones
    have room for 6 different voip providers, and you have wireless handsets....
    With a real IP phone you can also set sip-uri's for speed-dials,
    this might come in handy if your contacts also have voip providers.
    And you might also look into Sipbroker, With Sipbroker you can easily
    call contact on other networks

    Another option is the fritzbox range. I gave up on my SPA3102 (my 3rd SPA
    over the years) because of the echo which wouldnt go away no matter what
    settings I tried. The friztbox can be used either as your main router or
    just as an ATA (which is what I do). It works out the phone numbers - I just
    dial normally and it adds the relevant local code and country code for voip
    providers use and I dial *xxx# to force it to use a particular VOIP account
    or *111# to force it to use the landline account. You cant do complex
    dialplans like you can with the sipura but you can set it to use certain
    accounts for certain number types e.g. all international numbers over a
    certain account - all 0844 numbers over your landline etc. It also has a
    builtin answerphone that can email you your messages.

    I bought the 7170 and then upgraded the firmware to give me all the latest
    functionality.

    You need to split the dial plan out into its parts:

    [2356789]xxxxxS0 Use default (VoIP gw1)
    0[1-9]xxxxxxxxxS0 Use default (VoIP gw1)
    20xS0 Use default (VoIP gw1)
    <192S0:08001183733> 192 routes to 0800... on default (VoIP gw1)
    [999<:mad:gw0> 999 routes to POTS (gw0)
    xx. Any number uses default (VoIP gw1)
    *xx. * number uses default (VoIP gw1)
    <**,:>xx. ** is stripped & remaining number uses default
    <#,:>xx.<:mad:gw0> # is stripped & remaining number uses POTS (gw0)

    If you want your ATA to route calls automatically for you, you will need
    to work out a way of differentiating national calls from others. In the UK
    it's "0[123]xx." but I don't know how the Spanish numbering system works.

    I've not tested it, but this may work (I can't remember how the
    interaction between the first two rules happens):

    0[123]xx.<:mad:gw0> Route national numbers via POTS (gw0)
    xx. Everything else to VoIP (gw1)
    <#:>xx.<:mad:gw0> # number forces POTS (gw0) but # is stripped

    If you can't determine a rule to separate national numbers from others,
    just remove the first rule from my example and go back to using # as
    a routing prefix. (In my case, I use a mixture of both, but my routing
    prefix indicator is "**0" through "**4"; a single * is reserved for
    function codes.)


    > Is there a on line guide anywhere that explains all the programming
    > terms used in Call Plans?


    Yes. I think I googled for mine a couple of years ago.


    > Are call plans "universal" to all makes/models of VOIP adapters?


    No. But Sipura = Linksys = CISCO, so there's fairly high market
    penetration there.

    But i guess you have to use the modem function of the Fritz!
    With me, i've found out the providers 'box' gives me the best up & down
    load rates so i use it in bridge, with behind it a Sitecom WL309 gaming
    router, which works reasonable for now.
    on a LAN port i have a dect ip basestation (6 accounts) which also work
    fine.
    The fritz! is the the karton box again....

    No - I've got mine plugged into my virgin cable router - theres an option to
    set it up as just another box on your network rather than use it as the adsl
    modem. While it doesnt have the full dial plan functionality of the spa3102
    it actually does what I want to do (use multiple accounts and the landline
    on one phone with no messing about when dialling numbers) much better than
    the spa3102 did. And more importantly there's no echo.

    Try this (note I've not checked how they interact, and I'd be curious
    to hear your feedback):

    00xx. 00... routes to default (VoIP gw1)
    xx.<:mad:gw0> Anything else routes via POTS (gw0)

    To complete the process, you take each line, join them with "|" and
    stick brackets "("...")" around the result. This gives the Sipura
    dialing plan:

    (00xx.|xx.<:mad:gw0>)
