Description:There are quite a few additional tones in the UK that are not included in Asterisk. The "call waiting" tone was also incorrect. Here is a more complete list taken from the most receent official British Telecom documentation. (SIN 350, Issue 1.2, July 2004)

Asterisk doesn't support "Unobtainable" unless you add it to the dialplan manually, I'm not sure if there is such a thing in the US. I'll have a look at adding in support later. (This is pretty important for UK users, asterisk for outbound calls can get very confusing without it)


description = United Kingdom
ringcadance = 400,200,400,2000
; These are the official tones taken from BT SIN350. The actual tones
; used by BT include some volume differences so sound slightly different
; from Asterisk-generated ones.
dial = 350+440
; There is no seperate dialrecall tone in the UK
dialrecall = 350+440
; Special dial is the intermittent dial tone heard when, for example,
; you have a divert active on the line
specialdial = 350+440/750,440/750
; Busy is also called "Engaged"
busy = 400/375,0/375
; "Congestion" is the Beep-bip engaged tone
congestion = 400/400,0/350,400/225,0/525
; "Special Congestion" is not used by BT very often if at all
specialcongestion = 400/200,1004/300
unobtainable = 400
ring = 400+450/400,0/200,400+450/400,0/2000
callwaiting = 400/100,0/4000
specialcallwaiting = 400/250,0/250,400/250,0/250,400/250,0/5000
; "Pips" used by BT on payphones. (Souds wrong, but this is what BT claim it
; is and I've not used a payphone for years)
creditexpired = 400/125,0/125
; These two are used to confirm/reject service requests on exchanges that
; don't do voice announcements.
confirm = 1400
switching = 400/200,0/400,400/2000,0/400
; This is the three rising tones Doo-dah-dee "Special Information Tone",
; usually followed by the BT woman saying an appropriate message.
info = 950/330,0/15,1400/330,0/15,1800/330,0/1000
; Not listed in SIN350
record = 1400/500,0/60000

Can you supply this as a patch in diff -u format?  Thanks!

Also, can you check the indications settings in zaptel so that they match these settings? Please don't forget to disclaim the patch (see the bugtracker instructions).

Attached, hopefully OK this time, let me know if not. (Won't have access to a fax machine for the disclaimer until Monday)

Fixed in CVS although the zaptel patch didn't apply for some reason.  We probably don't need the disclaimer, but it would be handy to file it just in case.  Thanks for your contribution!
