Is there a way to allow people to call in on an 800 number to voicemail and allow them to make an outside call from within the phone system?<br><br>

Is this something you want to do, or something you want to prevent?

By default, Unity is configured to make toll fraud difficult if not impossible. Subscribers are restricted from setting long distance or international dialouts or transfers, and outside callers don't have any way to reach secondary dialtone.

If this is something you want to enable, it would also require attention in the phone system or Least Cost Routing system. I would advise against it, however, as it just opens the door to abuse.
