Default Longer delay for callback?

Hi there,

I only want to actually ask one question: if the Callback can be put at more than 99 seconds.

I'm due to be made homeless and 99 seconds isn't enough to get from the library computers to the nearest call box!

They are extremely expensive here, the minimum charge is £0.30 (about AU$0.75) and at Standard Rate this only lasts *19 seconds* for a call to a mobile.

However, I theorise that if I use Wengo and Voipcheap.com, then it works out about £0.07 to ring a mobile for upto a minute. Which is less a strain on me when ringing about rooms/jobs etc!

Maybe it could also be set to do the call at a prearranged time, say 10pm Friday night (when the library is closed).

Okay I'm being entirely selfish here, but extra features and options like this certainly would make such a service more marketable when you do start charging for it!

I tried setting up my own Asterisk PBX to put at a friend's house and connection and set up a DISA, but failed miserably, so I would appreciate any help or suggestions.

TIA,

-regards

The delay feature causes the system to spawn system threads and put it them to sleep for the specifed time.

The 99 sec limit was chosen as both a functional and system limit as we don't want lots of threads potentially hanging around for long periods of time taking up memory etc.

I'm afraid at this stage we are unable to make this change without first performing an proper impact analysis.

Hi there,

many thanks for your reply. It's going up to 40p next month!

My current solution is just using a little known phonecard, altho' I believe Jajah offers scheduled calling (at a cost of course!), so I might look into that.

-regards
