Different shipping methods through cart & back-end

I would like to offer different shipping methods for manually entered (phone) orders on the back-end than are surfaced to the public shopping cart.  However, it appears that the shipping method settings are global, so I can’t

The reason for this is we don’t want to always offer certain shipping methods unless we are talking to the customer.  For example, sometimes we will offer customers SmartPost on the phone to maybe save some money, but must warn them that the insurance policies and tracking are different than FedEx Ground.  Also, we only want to offer certain express shipping options through phone sales.

Hi, you can restrict some methods to be only visible for admin users with Shipping Restrictions module.  Will it work for you?

I think this might work for me, but it isn’t clear from the extension page whether it meets two of my requirements…

1) hide certain shipping options from *all* customers, but still have them available for customer service people to use in entering a manual order.

2) hide a carrier (not just certain options) from *all* customers, but still have them available for customer service people to use in entering a manual order.

Will it allow that?

With this extension, can shipping availability be controlled by store view?
