Your problem occurs in step 4 & 5. I don't believe that you can pick up 
the call and then ever be guaranteed to get the same parking position when 
you put it back in park. What would happen if someone else parked a call 
in between steps 4 and 5 and they got 701 because it was free. Once 
parked, the call should remain so until it is picked up or times out back 
to the attendant.
