Re: [Asterisk] Any tips on reducing delay with follow me?
It's probably "cell lag" and voip lag added together.
Think about this trip: Cell A (inbound) -> Cell carrier termination -> VoIP.MS termination -> your PBX -> VoIP.MS termination -> Cell carrier termination -> Cell B (outbound).
Simplified, of course, but you get the gist of the sentiment.
Do the old "2 cell phones in the same room" trick. That alone will give you a good idea as to what kind of lag in the cell carriers network alone.
The only part you have any control over is which VoIP.MS server you use. You might see if there is a faster one. Sometimes the geographically closets isn't always the fastest.
You could also utilize VoIP.ms FMFM service, although it's not nearly as nice as "full blown" asterisk, it does take two segments out of the route. The huge gaping flaw with voip.ms FMFM service is there is no "remote announce / accept" option ("to accept this call, press blah blah"). Without it, you'll have callers getting dumped on cell phones vmail rather than moving to the next option. Not sure why they've never fixed this.
If someone refers to herself / himself as a "guru", they probably aren't.
