Description:I am using a patched version of to provide the page "s" option.  I am using snom phones and a dialplan similar to this:

exten => 602,1,Wait(1)
exten => 602,n,SIPAddHeader(Call-Info: sip:\; answer-after=0)
exten => 602,n,Page(SIP/101&SIP/102&SIP/103&SIP/104&SIP/105|sq)

The "s" option works great!
The problem occurs when a user is offhook and is dialing a number or has not yet dialed a number.  Asterisk thinks the phone is idle so it sends the page to it and it ends up ringing to the phones next line.  Somehow either the phone needs to notify asterisk that is offhook or asterisk needs to ask the phones when it pages.  So I can see this being fixed on either end.  Which would be the prefered way?


As far as the phone notifying asterisk, is that something that can be done with PUBLISH and is that supposed to be working in 1.4?
Is there anyway to tell if a sip phone is simply offhook?

There is no way to know that a SIP phone will/can notify Asterisk that it is off hook, and no way for Asterisk to query - besides sending a call to it and the phone rejecting it. To that extent I am closing this bug out as not fixable.
