Here's my sample Asterisk 11 Configuration that shows a way to map multiple Twilio numbers to multiple asterisk users through the Twilio Elastic Sip Trunking service.

I'd like to figure out how to get the outbound caller id working, it seems when I dial out to another network it always appears as 'Unknown' (no number at all). If anyone has a pointer to help solve this issue that would be great! Thanks.

Hey all, we're always trying to improve our API Docs. Has there been anything you've seen in our Docs that can be better? Or maybe you've seen some cool stuff in other companies' docs that we could include? What do the best docs look like, in your opinion?

Let’s be honest: traditional call centers have a terrible user experience. You see something interesting on a website that you want more information about. E

Date plans? Found a very cool use of SMS feature

We found a very cool use of Twilio in this website, 4daysout.com. The site allows you to plan a movie or dinner date, and sends the time and locations of the date to yourself and/or your partner.

ok So I tried  a second 'recipe', i skipped up to chapter 11 "MMS". It seems the function file_get_contents_curl($url) does not work, because the URL in the MMS message contains a URL to the twilio api, and requesting that URL causes a server redirect to a location on cloud/content storage. The function as-is just downloads an xml file which describes the image.

The fix is to add curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);

Then it will follow the redirect to the image on cloud storage.

Anyhow, I don't see how I can give a good review for this thing. I would think since there are like a dozen reviews and editors listed at the beginning of this book (and it's the second edition), that the code would actually work, but so far it's two fails out of two. I don't think it's an API update problem because the SMS API appears to be v2008 and MMS v2010.

Hopefully Michael J. Gibbs has a better experience. :)
