Yes, I want the dialing party to get a ring forever. This is because I
cannot transfer the party to my SIP phone, because my SIP phone is
broken for incoming calls. 

I'll solve it by letting the party hear a ring and then I'll use the
event socket to give me a notification. I'll then dial in with my SIP
phone to a conference room and transfer the calling party there. 

I did this: 

  <extension name="ring_forever">
    <condition field="destination_number" expression="ring_forever">
      <action application="gentones" data="${us-ring}|100"/>
      <action application="transfer" data="ring_forever"/>

  <extension name="eternal_ring">
    <condition field="destination_number" expression="4ever">
      <action application="pre_answer"/>
      <action application="transfer" data="ring_forever"/>

..which gives me an eternal ring, but it sounds choppy and it sounds as
if the following ring starts on top of the currently playing ring. 

I hear crackling sounds, which I don't experience with any other use of

Any idea?
