Anyone have an emergency after hours pager script?

anyone have a working pager script they use for an after hours emergency mailbox for say an on call technician? in this case the one built in freepbx wont work, has to be a numeric pager

I modified a cell phone notification script for asterisk 1.2 but don’t have a clue on how to make it work with asterisk 1.4

caller leaves a message in a mailbox, asterisk dials the pager number with a notification


post the 1.2 script we might can help you

starts here: ;VM Notify Start in this file

; This file contains example extensions_custom.conf entries.
; extensions_custom.conf should be used to include customizations
; to AMP’s Asterisk dialplan.

; All custom context should contain the string ‘custom’ in it’s name

; Extensions in AMP have access to the ‘from-internal’ context.
; The context ‘from-internal-custom’ is included in ‘from-internal’ by default

;VM Notify Start
;This is for adding the ability to have asterisk call the user’s cell phone when
;a new voicemail is recorded in their mailbox. It is still being tested and needs
;some voice prompts recorded to make it sound better.
;Installation: just copy the text between VM Notify start and VM Notify End
;and past it into extensions_custom.conf then put “include => custom-vm-notify”
;under the [from-internal-custom] context to enable *26
;the [macro-vm] replaces the one in extensions.conf to make it check if the user has
;VM Notify enabled. The only difference is the “exten => h,1,Macro(vm-notify,${ARG1})”
;line. If the [macro-vm] changes in future versions of freePBX/Trixbox then it needs
;to be copied here to replace this one with the exten h line staying the same.
;Change log
;8-9-06: added a repeat of message when called and short pauses after a button is pressed
;9-29-06: changed gotoif to test for null better
;11-7-06: changed retrytime to 60 seconds
