Not sure how elegant this is, but I think you can try to elaborate some
logic that when phone C dials something, it would retrieve you the channel
phone A is connected and use the Bridge application to force the connection
of phone C to phone A. So you need first to save the channels you have
connected in a call, later on read this info based on whatever the phone C
has dialed in and just use this as parameter to the Bridge app. When this
happens channel C gets connected to channel A and channel B should
automatically get disconnected (or maybe continue your dialplan execution).
