My condo provides some kind of VoIP thru PBX for us. I have no idea what they use. I simply connect a regular analog phone to our phone jack and use it like a normal analog phone. The fee is $80 a month with unlimited US & Canada, and free 4 hrs International with $0.02 for each additional international minutes. I am pretty happy with the service because I make around 4000+ min/month. However, the service does not have call forwarding nor call bridging, etc. If I add an Asterisk@home, can I get call forwarding and Bridging? What I want to do is to forward calls to my cellular phone when no one is answering the call at home, and allows me to call from my cellular phone to my home phone, and than dial the outgoing number through my home phone (bridging). This way, I can get unlimited incomg/outgoing cellular minutes too with Sprint’s unlimited mobile to home.
If Asterisk can do this for me, what equipments other then a Linux system do I need? Do I need a HW card or I just need a Ethernet port? Do I need to find out my condo system’s SIP or something?
Please help, thank you.
