[asterisk-users] agi get_data noanswer

Eric is correct. There is no way to send dtmf while the call has not been

But us very confusing the read command, in specific  option = n(noanswer)
to read digits even if the line is not up

My AGI line is the following

The command works, but there is no dtmf negotiation

The command works, but there is a kind of answer

What is the purpose of this noanswer option in a read command when it is
imposible to read?.
Is there any way to negotiate with the end user in this early media

Thanks in advance.
