    This seems to have launched today. I can't test it until I get home, but I'm thinking for the rule:

    Calls that prefix with 411, and are 3 digits... Then I strip 3 digits, and prepend 8004664411.

    Sound right?

    goog411 has been around for a little while now. however, that is a great idea using it with the phone system. with your dialing outbound rule, i think we could accomplish the same thing by just prepending prefix 411 with 8004664. Also, make sure you don't have an extension 411 in your system.

    So,

    Rule Name: GOOG411
    Calls to Numbers starting with (Prefix): 411
    Calls to Numbers with a length of: 3
    Route 1: (Outgoing Line)
    Strip Digits: 0
    Prepend: 8004664

    It may be necessary to add a 1 before 800 depending on your provider. I tested this rule and it works fine.

    08:11:54.643 CallCtrl::eek:nSelectRouteReq [CM503004]: Call(50): Calling: PSTNline:8004664411@(Ln.10001@0244)@[Dev:sip:10001@192.168.1.201:5062]
    08:11:54.342 CallCtrl::eek:nIncomingCall [CM503001]: Call(50): Incoming call from Ext.107 to [sip:411@192.168.1.100]

    Great idea!

    I didn't have a problem... but this is being "advertised" on their front page, so maybe they are getting slammed as every PBX, Voip provider and end user is slamming it. ;)
