Smile Converting special numbers

Thanks affinity,

I was using 911 as an example - maybe bad 'cause of all the other issues it raises... Say i want 411 to convert to 800 Goog 411. Does somebody know what string to put into the Dial Plan: line? Is there documentation of that somewhere? I'm trying to avoid the complication of setting up a PBX just to route special numbers.

About emergency dialing - the US is a big place I used to live in NYC were the call center is important. Here in our town, all the emergency calls go into a local number so 911 in our case go to the local number that dispatches police fire ambulance. Most likely if we were calling, we'd be using one of the 4 mobile phones we have in the house...

On the 3102 Line 1 setup there is an "Emergency Number" field any idea what that does?
