Nokia SIP client using international numbers

When using my new Nokia E65 and dialing out with asterisk, it would often fail as i couldn’t dial a + (international option).

using Trixbox, the + character is reserved in outbound routes so i had to use extensions_custom.conf to make the following changes…

exten => _+61XXXXXXXXX,1,Goto(from-internal,0${EXTEN:-9},1)
exten => _*X.,1,Goto(from-internal,${EXTEN},1)
exten => _X.,1,Goto(from-internal,${EXTEN},1)
This allows  my saved phone entries witha + to work.

Obviously, unless you live in Australia,  you may want to change the +61 to something else.

Also, even though asterisk doesn’t appear to list + as a dialplan option, it works.

Tested in asterisk 1.2.4 and 1.2.5

  1. I tried that context with Trixbox 2.6 and my N95. It works well.
    I added
    exten => _+XXXXXXXXXXX,1,Goto(from-internal,0011${EXTEN:1},1}
    as the second line to allow me to dial the international numbers I have stored in the phone. For uniformity I add the 0011 prefix in place of the + and remove it at the trunk as required.

  2. I have a problem setting up my Nokia E65 with ASTERISK: it can’t dial out any number. It always returns “Address not in use”.

    I guess my asterisk configuration is not setup properly. How did you set it to make outbound calls?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
