Get dial tone from outside system

Get dial tone from outside system

It is possible to get a dial tone from within your voice mail options. If I  need to make a call from my cell and want to make sure the long distance goes on the company phone bill.  Any help would be appreciated

RE: Get dial tone from outside system

VM Pro can be used to allow breakout calls to the PSTN using a tone menu & transfer action.

set the tone menu to wait for a fixed number of digits (Touch tones menu - green plus sign to ad & enter ? for each digit) depending on howmany digits are required for your long distance call

link to a transfer action with destination set to $Key

I would also recomend addin a pin to this feature to prevent unauthorised access
