I don't understand why this works. Also, is it possible to
make an outgoing call if the ring suppressor is turned on?
Well I guess it would be since most phones these days have a
FWBR at the front end. But I still don't understand why it
works to suppress ringing.
So how are you going to handle this? Since the CID packet
doesn't come in until after the first ring, you'll have to
leave the suppressor ON all the time, and then turn it
OFF for those calls you want to accept. Is that it?
