Default Everybody ringing just one number

Certain classes at a local gym are oversubscribed and so they have now asked
people to ring in after 1300 hrs the day before and book a place by phone.

So everybody is ringing in at the same time (if you don't ring earlier all
the vacancies have gone)and you just cannot get through. Using Voip stunt
the phone just rings three times and says its busy and cuts off.

We have heard there is a new piece of software for smart phones that somehow
sorts out this problem, I think it is by connecting you when their line is
free ?

Would anyone know of this software or any other solution to this problem of
getting connected ? Preferably accessible by using either a BT landline or
Voip Stunt PC phone.

Find another gym. Buy some home sports equipment.
Learn to exercise without haveing to have some twit yell at you to
motivate you.

It rather depends on where this message you hear is originating from
but it sounds like the line might not truly busy, your call might be
being answered by the system at the far end and that system plays you
that message rather than put you in a queue.
Not very helpful.

You can tell if the calls are being answered by looking at the
voipstunt CDR.

Is it the message if you use a different carrier?

Oh and the cynic in me has just prompted me to ask you if this number
is a premeum rate one where the gym gets a share of the revenue?

My name is Graham too. It's rare to see a fellow "Graham" in the
US. Are you in the US?

No, England, but my dad was raised in Scotland, some parts of which
are definitely gray.

It's a good name to have.

This is good advice; you don't need to work on a farm but you can get fit
for much less and probably see better results.

A typical gym will want £50 a month or £600 a year!

Want to build muscle? Argos sell a weight set for £70 and expert advice
is that you should use free weights, not 'machines'.

Want to lose weight or get fit? You can get a decent pair of running
shoes for £70 and an annual running club membership for £25. Plus you
get to see more of the outdoors instead of staring at a wall.

Well getting paid for working on a far seems a little better to me than
paying for the exercise. Lots of fresh air and no stinky armpits
contaminating the room air.

The above is logical but going to a gym is quite different to exercising
at home. Firstly, you are doing it along side others which is a big
incentive to carry on. Secondly, it's social, you get to know the
regulars.

If the voip company is dropping the call after 3 rings then use a
different company. I use a Betamax company and I've never experience a
call busy signal after only 4 rings so could it be something else?

My old Nokia phone could be set to redial a number and when the line is
free, then to connect. So, that type of program is not at all new.
