I'm currently working on the following patch and I was wondering if other people are interested in this as well?
We have various services here in NL where you can dial a local (fixed) number, then send a pause (p), the international number you would like to dial and a #.
This way you pay local costs on your cellphone and you get the international minutes billed from the carrier that provides you with the fixed phone number. This carrier is usually a lot cheaper then your own carrier when dialing internationally.
For example BT OneVoice Mobile Access which I have for work offers this service, but also bel1649.nl.
It basically works the following (let me take bel1649.nl as an example):
When in NL I dial there 010-7441441 number, then wait for the announcement and enter my international number I would like to dial for example +4479123456789 followed by a #.
If I want to dial this quicker without manually entering and waiting for the announcement I can do 010-7441441p004479123456789#
I currently have a proof of concept working for myself on 2.2.4 which basically does the following:
1. Adds another option to the International Calls list (besides Carrier, Skype, Always Ask there will be another option called "Custom International Dialer").
2. When you select this option as your International Calls option, when you dial an international number, it will prefix it with the number of my custom carrier. So it will automatically prefix all international numbers at dialing with 010-7441441p and suffixes it with a #.
This seems to work rather well and I was wondering if other people are interested in this as well, so I can look into making this a proper patch (probably with Tweaks, so you can set your custom dialing number, pause and suffix there)?
