Dial LD account code via short code

Dial LD account code via short code

I am trying to setup a short code to dial long distance numbers which require service provider account codes, but am having no luck using 2.1.27.

I have tried using D1234 and ,,,,1234 but it still won't ring out.

Anyone have any suggestions for this?  Thanks.

RE: Dial LD account code via short code

That is how I had it setup, I was just lazy typing it all in.  This is also going over a PRI if it makes a difference.

It makes a big difference in north america.  Because you have to dial enbloc, you can't insert pauses like that.  I haven't had a chance to try this yet, but someone on this forum a while back posted something about an undocumented 'Y' in your shortcode tel number field.  If I recall correctly, it ran along these lines:


Give it a whirl and let us know.  I've been meaning to try this myself but just haven't gotten to it yet - super busy lately.


RE: Dial LD account code via short code

Hm, haven't seen the Y before, but I'll give it a shot to see what happens.

RE: Dial LD account code via short code

Y is the way to go. I set it up just today.
