The manual process is accomplished as follows.
1 dial our personal direct dial number
2 pause pause
3 enter #
4 pause pause
5 enter our mailbox security code (4-8 numbers)
6 enter #
8 enter *
10 enter #
11 enter 91 (9 for outside line, 1 for US)
at this point we enter the 7 digit number and are connected
Can someone write an app or is one already written that will simply let us choose a contact to dial and have a popup as done in Google Voice
Call with Google Voice
Call without Google Voice
Call from PBX
I am thinking if you select call from pbx the app would simply dial steps 1-11 above and then enter the contact number to complete the call.
This has to be incredibly easy for guys... it would sure help us outside sales guys from dialing in through our corporate pbx's.
all they really need to do is to get whom ever programs your pbx to allow disa, and be done with it, does what you describe but much shorter route, faster and more reliable, thats what Disa is made for anyway, direct Inward Station access, can even be set up to recognize caller id of the devices calling in to keep from having to dial access codes too.
i am a pbx programmer, btw.
