I am running Asterisk and have recently implemented a couple of VOIP lines from voipstreet.com.
I have set the IAX trunks up and everything is working perfectly however I am finding that the new VOIP lines require 11 digits for outside dialing (i.e. 13035551212).
Is there a way I can implement a dial plan that will automatically add the “1” in front of the 10 digit phone number so that users making local calls will not need to dial the “1” first???
I realize that the one extra digit is not that much but we’ve come across a problem with it. When someone leave a voice mail message for a user, the Caller ID is captured in the voice mail message as a 10 digit number. I have “callback” set in our voice mail system so that users can return phone calls directly from voice mail. Since the number captured in the voice mail message is only 10 digits long and the VOIP lines requires all 11 digits, I’m trying to find a fix for this problem.
Any help/examples will be greatly appreciated.
