Local Area Code 'Dial Plan'

Has anyone managed to figure a way of setting up a Dial Plan or similar to allow a local UK number to be dialled without putting in that area code? With our old VOIP providers this was easy to do by setting the Dialling Plan and ticking 'Use Area Code' in the DECT base station.
 
According to RC's tech support, there is no way to do this and you have to type the entire phone number every time you make a call

Hey Mike,

I'm gonna flip this to a Feature Request for others to vote on :)

In the meantime, have you thought about adding this UK number (I'm assuming it will be used often) as a Contact? Or maybe create a Speed Dial on the phone for it?

Hi Saadet,

It's not one specific number, we already use a contact list for those.

The problem is our office is in Oxford, which has a local code of 01865, which means most of our outgoing calls are to local businesses in Oxford, were we normally just dial the Oxford number without having to type in the 01865 every time. With our current VOIP provider, we just setup a Dial Plan and it automatically adds the 01865 unless we type 0xxx, where it then uses the entire area code and number.

As RC can't use the Gigaset IP phones, we've just bought Yealink W56's only because these are provisioned by RC, we can't log into the base station to see if there is a 'Dial Plan' option.

Many thanks
Mike

Hey Mike,

Gotcha, completely understand! If you're having issues logging into the web GUI of the Yealink you can always call into support and they can assist you. I'm not sure, though, if the Yealinks have a "Dial Plan" option.

Once we let RC provision the handset, all the options like dial plan are unavailable.
