Actually I don't use 9 for anything in any context.  For small dialplans I find it more confusing for users to have to dial 9 for anything.

I don't think the problem is as much with the dialplan, though, as it is with the bridging of the two FXO ports Zap/1+Zap/2.  When 9 is pressed by the caller, the call is made out the available FXO port and the cell phone ends up ringing.  The problem really is that once that connection is made, the only audio that passes is a loud feedback type noise.
