I don't know.  But every time I've called them I've talked to a person
who could answer all my questions.

With apologies to the non-LDS members of this group, here here goes.
I'm in an Elder's quorum presidency, and the pres asked me to set up a
dialer so that we can announce service projects.  Sometimes we only
find out about a need the day before, and sometimes folks forget.

So I set up an asterisk at home pbx behind my firewall, and I will use it
to call all the Elder's in the ward, play a message, and log the
status of the call.  So I have my normal phone line via SIP and my
LinkSyss RT31P2 router.  I tinker too much to make my wife suffer
through depending on my asterisk box for normal phone service.  But I
don't have to pay a monthly fee for the outbound-only trunks.  I just
pay a per-minute fee.  I can't receive calls on them, but that's ok
for what I'm doing.

I've made lots of test calls, and I'll be doing the first real
distribution tonight and tomorrow.
