I am trying to setup my system to not pass the external CID when forwarding calls to my mobile phone. I realize this is pretty much the oposite of what most people want to do, but I would like all forwarded calls to show my business CID instead of the actual callers CID.
External caller @ 806.123.1234 calls and dails my extension and when follow me forwards the call to me I want cid to show my business cid of 806.111.1111.
I would like to know if someone has called me directly or if the call is coming from my pbx.
Any help with this is greatly appreciated.
how can we check after doing configuration that asterisk is properly working
I don’t have a dedicated test system to do a quick test, so… just to make sure.
Installing this module allows me to change the CallerID of a incoming call someway along it’s route from coming in on the trunk, until it’s forwarded from an extension using FollowMe or plain unconditional call forward?
I want to achieve something similar to that of the original thread author.
When incoming calls are forwarded to external phones, I want to set CallerID of call to CID/DID of the extension being called.
Example: external caller at 123-456-789 calls my extension 555-666-0401. On office SIP phone connected extension 0401 I want CallerID shown as 123-456-789.
But if extension 401 is forwarded to an external mobile, I want CallerID shown as 555-666-0401.
Thanks for any feedback!
