You could do that, or you could read the extensive writeups on
www.voip-info.org and figure out a phone dialplan that works for you.  That
would be my long term suggestion.

I try to replicate a POTS line as much as possible, or at least an office
phone, with 9 to get out since most people are already hard wired for that
in an office environment.

The last thing you need is someone trying to dial 911 or whatever your
emergency number is and in panic, forgetting to press dial.

It isn't that hard to understand, and I was forced to since different
regions have seven digit dialing but it is all ten or eleven in the Maryland
