VoIP Dialing plan

I was playing with VoIP over the weekend and managed to configure my mobile phone and an old sip hard phone to talk to each other, go to voice mail, paging, and receiving calls from google voice all using freeswitch.

One difficulty with the insanity of setting up a PBX system in your home is the "dial plan" -- AKA what happens when you start pushing buttons on the phone.

Imagine you encounter something like the following phone in my home in Los Angeles:



Poll #1483025 What would you try to dial?

What would you first try for a local call

Dial the 7 digit local phone number
5(31.2%)
Dial the area code + 7 digit phone number
5(31.2%)
Dial 1 + area code + 7 digits
3(18.8%)
Dial 9 + area code + 7 digits
2(12.5%)
Dial 9 + 1 + area code + digits
1(6.2%)
Something else
0(0.0%)

What would you first try in an emergency.

dial 911
12(80.0%)
dial 9911
3(20.0%)

What would you actually do first for a non-emergency call.
