Redial a Number from Phone Manager 3.0.12

Redial a Number from Phone Manager 3.0.12

The instructions say to double-click on a number in call history to call it back. However, we need the '91' prefix. Any way to add it automatically?

RE: Redial a Number from Phone Manager 3.0.12

Unfortunately this was not a well thought out feature.  If the vast majority of your calls are long distance, you can add 91 as a prefix in the line form.  However, you won't be able to double click on local calls to call them back this way.

Alternately, you could try to build shortcodes to respond correctly to the dialed number based on a lead 1, number of digits, etc.  This can be fairly easy or quite complicated depending on your local calling area.  

One nice thing I have noticed in the Toronto area is that analog lines now receive a 1 prefixed on the caller ID if the caller is long distance.  This is likely a new DMS feature that should be getting rolled out over time, and the 5ESS may pickup and do also.

If you are in the US you can create a short code called
SC xxxxxxxxxx

You will also have to have some area code variables if you can't dial a 1

SC 610xxxxxxx
TN 610N
