The asterisk11 page() application works great, but I’ve just learned that the person who initiated the page can transfer or conference the page if they don’t hang it up before using those functions. It never would have occurred to me to try it, but a user did it accidentally today and it caused quite a stir when somebody’s conversation with a caller was being broadcast from every phone.

They’re using the conf and xfer buttons on the phone to make this happen, so I’m not sure if asterisk can even prevent them from doing it or if I have to figure out a way to stop it from happening on the phone. The “i” option for Page didn’t help.

Anybody dealt with this before?
