Would caller id with the person's cell phone number solve this problem?
If so, that might be easier to handle.
Yes/no. Yes, in that the system should pass through your cell phone
number to the callee. No, in that a significant number of people
wouldn't want their personal cell phone number being passed on to the
callee. Also, you might not recognize most people's cell phone
numbers, plus there may be many cases where caller id information
isn't sent or is incorrect etc.

It was pretty short. It was over by 2000 UTC when I got back. If you look
at the log, you'll see it went pretty quick.
If you want to add to the wish list, I would like to eventually be able to
forward calls to another sip server. Right now I sort of handle this (but
something is broken) by having my asterisk box register with the fedora
talk server so it can get calls. But I get so few calls (none except for
my test calls) that I think it would be significantly less overhead to
have a forwarding ability rather than have to essentially poll from my
We're handling this as one-off items that need someone from F-I to set
up - for example both Dennis Gilmore and I have IAX trunks set up.
