    Got my Sprint PPC 6000 this weekend and so far am blown away. This is a really cool device, especially with the MS voice recognition software. Before going on the really fun stuff, I'm trying to configure my contacts and phone settings the way I want them and have run into a minor problem. On my old Treo 600, I was able to program the speed dial string to automatically dialing extra digits an pauses to get thru my work and Sprint voicemail, for example:

    (phone number),,,,,,,*3,124,9876

    to connect, wait for attendent(,,,,,,), access mailbox(*3), extension(124, password(9876)

    I think I have read all the documentation, but am unable to find how to do this on the PPC6000.

    I also had problems with the T600 and my companies phone switch and resolved them by disabling Short DTMF Tones in the phone preferences.
    Is there a similar capability on the PPC6000?

    Thanks in advance for any help forthcoming.

    Here's a thread that can help you with pause dialing. It is done with "p" for pause

    As for DTMF length I don't have my PPC phone with me, but it should be in the phone options in the dialing pad, or under >settings>phone. I'll confirm when I get home.

    I have been using the pauses, actually I use commas and not p's and it works fine... BUT I havent figured out if the ppc6600 can do this:
    On my old phone, I had a "Hard Pause" which waited for me to press "Ok" before continuing the dialing sequence. This was extremely helpful as I could dial my office, then hit ok if i wanted to go to voicemail, or just dial an extension manually if i needed to call someone at the office. Can this be done???

    In the PPC6600 press the green phone button to display the screen dial pad
    ->tools->options->keypad-> select "Tones."

    Tones for the dialing buttons are the long DTMF, while beeps are the short ones.

    I'm not aware of the existence of hard pauses on these PPC phones. Maybe some people at PDAPhonehome know. I think I saw you posted the question there. Responses there are fairly slow, but generally good
