EDIT: If * will cause too much trouble, # is fine instead, because one of the platforms that can be downloaded uses # keycodes (see below to understand).
It is an Aastra / Nortel Vista / Power Touch Model 390 Phone. See here for all the details: http://adsi.aastra.com/dealer/products.htm
It can be programmed to work with several different call management systems like Talk Switch, Altigen, etc. (but not Asterisk or similar).
They do provide a custom web programming service, but unfortunately, it says my phone is incompatible So I'm stuck with downloading one of the pre-programmed firmware downloads. Depending on the platform I have downloaded (e.g. Talk Switch), the soft key buttons represent different numbers/codes to be dialed. For instance, on one platform there might be a "V-mail" key on the display and when it is pushed, it dials "#34'
Currently I have a server setup in my house that can answer VoIP calls with auto attendants and process them as needed. My idea is, create an extension that is linked up to that server..
Person presses "V-mail" button on phone
PBXes dials extension #34 (configured with my server) and the auto-attendant answers.
The auto-attendant allows the person to access the family voice mail (my voice-mail system is on my server).
Person presses "Pick-Up" button
PBXes dials extension #20
My server answers, quickly asks the user what extension to answer and forwards call to **<ext>
I wish I could figure out how to get the custom phone programming to work though, it'd make a it a lot easier
P.S. Note that each download has different soft key values (e.g. instead of Talk Switch, I can download Altigen which would have different numbers associated with each key).
