Call through pbx

Is there a feature to allow you to call into the PBX say using your local home number, enter a pin code and then dial long distance to use the sip to reduce long distance fees?

 

Yes. Either use the "Calling Card" account and call that account (your extension must have a PIN code set for that) or put your home number in as cell phone number of an extension and call the auto attendant. Then you will get a special IVR that asks you if you want to place an outbound call.

We've used this extensively with a client with 8 remote salespeople. Adding a 1 to the 10 digit telephone number redirection field will prevent the special IVR out dialing capabilities. Where this is very affective is adding a CELL PHONE Gateway that support SIP to allow remote cell phone users to place cell to cell calls and access to the the PSTN without using minutes. Also many cell providers have Circle of Friend (special numbers) and adding backdoor dialouts is an affective way to open the PSTN and reduce cell minutes.

 

Beware, having the phone number in the cell redirection will always result in the IVR prompt and using the STOP caller ID *67 is the best way to prevent and get normal AA service.

 

Cheers.
