My VIOIP provider requires me to send phone numbers in the following format (e164): +firstname.lastname@example.org (IP and phone numbers are examples here but it is sip:e164@IP to be more generic) Question 1. It seems like 3CX VOIP client is currently not allowing anything but digits to be dialed. (@ or : signs get stripped out). It seems from one of the posts that is something they are working on. If someone knows for sure, please let me know if I got that correctly. Question 2. If I use x-lite and I dial sip:+email@example.com call will go through no problem. I would like be able to allow my users to just be able to dial 9 (for outside line) and then 8585551212 and have the call go through. To that end I have specified in my outbound rules that all calls begining with 9 will go to this provider. I also specified that 1st digit should be stripped. That all works great but what I realy need to be able to do is then also prepend +1. Unfortunately, + sign is not allowed. I'll survive but I would rather not have to tell my users to dial 9+1 first. That seems lame. Not to mention then I really cannot use 3CX client because + is not allowed. Any insight here would be great. Thank you very much. Goran.
