    When you get a 'busy signal' from a VOIP call, have any of you checked to
    determine if the called number is actually in use?

    At first I thought my VOIP provider was working flawless. When I got a
    busy signal I just assumed the number I was calling was busy. Then it
    started dawning on me that some of these numbers should never be busy. If
    they're in use, they trip to voice mail.

    Now when I get a busy signal, I try the number using my POTS line. If it
    rings and if I'm not in a hurry, I hang up and hit the re-dial on my voip
    phone. I'm finding that more then half the busy signals I getting when I
    use VOIP go thru when I use POTS

    Has anyone done this test and if so what have you found ?

  2. Sure. It happens, especially when the voip service provider changes
    their "security" settings and asterisk no longer can connect. I guess
    its a good reason one should check the logs more regularly.

    A good test (especially if you have a blackbox that give you no logs)
    is to call your pots line once in a while and see if things are still
