[asterisk-users] fallback to default extension

Extension "i" only works for IVRs and other things like Background and WaitExten, it does not work to match incoming calls to an invalid extension.

You can use exten ->  i  This will catch any invalid extensions that are sent into a context. You could than route the flow as you see fit.

I was asked by our development departement to setup asterisk in a manner that if someone calls an extension in the department that was was only configured, but a handset was never attached to it to fall back to a default extension. For example: Someone calls extension 2408, but there's no phone attached to 2408 it should fall back and ring at 2400..

How do I setup asterisk to find out if there's a phone attached to an internal number if not ring another extension?
