You can do that in your dialplan, without any additional software!  All you 
*might* have to do is patch your existing dialler software  (or more probably, 
just do an ALTER on a database table)  so it can handle a string five times the 
length of a normal phone number.

Now you just have to concatenate together all the possible phone numbers for a 

Pass the string of concatenated numbers to your dialplan; spot that it is much 
longer than a normal phone number; and send it off to a special context which 
will split the number up, and then try each section in turn until one answers.

In countries where they still have different-length phone numbers, you probably 
will need to introduce a * as a delimiter between each number and the next.


Answers come *after* questions.
