Can a CallFile call an external number & connect to an external number

I have a callfile that rings my internal extension & connects me to an external number with no prob.

Channel: local/MYEXT@from-internal
MaxRetries: 1
RetryTime: 60
WaitTime: 30
Context: from-internal
Extension: OTHERPHONE
Priority: 1

How can I get it to start the call from my cell phone instead of my extension?
I tried this:

Channel: local/MYCELLPHONE@from-internal
MaxRetries: 1
RetryTime: 60
WaitTime: 30
Context: from-internal
Extension: OTHERPHONE
Priority: 1

And it did ring my cell phone, but never connected me to the other number.

One way would be to make your cellphone a misc. destination, then have the call file send to that.
