Play announcement when extension dialed is invalid? SCCP Paging thoughts?

Curious if FreePBX can be configured to play an announcement if a user dials an invalid internal extension number. Something like “You’ve reached a non-working number at xxxx”, though we don’t have DIDs. This is for internal extensions only.

New to FreePBX, getting it set up via a friend. I have full access to it. We got chan_sccp working and are using all Cisco phones. This thing is pretty cool! Any recommendations for setting up group paging using Cisco phones in SCCP mode?

You can setup an outbound route that matches your local extension range, and send it to a static announcement, or to a custom context which looks something like this.

exten => s,1,Noop()
exten => s,n,Playback(custom/you-reach-non-wrkng)
exten => s,n,SayDigits(${CALLERID(dnid)})
exten => s,n,Hangup()

The chan-sccp-b wiki I wrote for FreePBX has instructions on setting up the phones for “under-chin” paging.
