Phone Number pattern Matching

How the matching works Pattern matching compares each digit of the match rule with the caller id. If the match rule is only 3 digits long, it will stop matching at 3 digits and if the first 3 digits match then it will be considered a match. Multiple match strings can be added separated by a comma. If the match string contains a ‘^’ then this means ‘not’, for example, 00^0 means the 3rd digit cannot be a 0.

babblevoice Security Policy

Voice All traffic to and from babblevoice is carried via SIP and its companion RTP. We don’t encrypt any of the data between any end point. SIP communications are secured via usernames and password. A phone never sends a username or password in a call. An MD5 hash of the username and password along with a random string is sent by the phone, so anyone who tries to hijack this information will not be able to use it.
