Your prepaid system concept is a little different from mine. For mine,
the SER is just a middleman. I route all my calls to Cisco CallManager
which will then route accordingly. So I just get all my accounting info
from the Callmanager CDR. I then run ASP scripts to check the users
balances and if it ever finds a low-in-credit user, it will go into the
mysql db by odbc and insert the user into a grp (acl is preconfigured to
block this grp from accessing the PSTN).

For your case, probably the only thing u can do is to match 2 things,
the dest. Country code and the different local charges for each country.

Do comment about my set up.

using itfor prepaid system?

Sure Sam, I am currently developing a script which will check the credit
balance of the user from mysql and accordingly rewrite the uri.
If the balance is low... it will forward to SEMS announcement.

Like that when SER receives a BYE, the Script should check the
destination and total mins and calculate the amount and reduce it from
the user credits.

Currently the difficult part is the destination country code. I have
stored all the codes in the mysql prefix table. But each country have
sub codes for states. For example UK proper is only .02 cents, but
mobile is .40 cents We have to differentiate the code properly.

If you have any other suggestions kindly let me know.
