Works, but not in any meaningful way
Authored by: brandondrew on Oct 27, '04 09:17:08PM

I've tried this with my Vonage line and my POTS line, and it works, BUT to make it work I have both on the hook. As soon as I submit the URL (I'm not actually using the AppleScript) my Vonage line rings. (Yes, the line I'm supposed to be calling FROM.) I must pick it up DURING THE RING and then wait for it to call the other phone, or I miss the chance to make the connection. If I have it off the hook before submission, it's no-go. If I pick up after the ring is over, it doesn't work either.

Can someone tell me how this can possibly be useful under these circumstances, OR ELSE how you get it to work in some useful way?

Thanks in advance

Brandon Z
