Depends on what functionality would you expect from the solution.
Please see Daniele's hints about the voice reception. However if you
expect to use the actual handset to speak and gnokii just to dial,
that would work. However you'd need to write a short program based on
libgnokii. If you look at Daniele's waitcall that would be similiar
one. --makevoice will not redial automatically.

Yes, gnokii can handle multiple phones in parallel, given that you
would run multiple gnokii instances using different [phone] sections
from the config.

take care,
