    Hi All,
    I just purchased a Centro. One of the features that I loved on my old phone was the ability to send key-tones across the line while I am connected. For example - I use a 1-800 number to do international dialing. Once I connect to the 1-800 number I need to be able to enter the phone number I want to dial. With my old phone I would simply bring up my contact list - choose the person I am calling and hit send. The phone would send the keytones across the line and my international VOIP carrier would dial the number for me.

    Is there any way to do this on the Centro?

    I tried the same thing and the Centro tried to dial the number on a second line rather than just sending the key-tones across.

    If anyone has managed to do this I would appreciate some pointers on how you did this. Off course if I just type in the number that works. I just need to automate it

    Good question, I would like to know the same. Ive tried everything I could think of and cant figure it out. Does anyone know if this is possible to do with the Centro? (I hate having to type all the banking info in)

    I have been unable to do this. It is driving me nuts! This thread has been up here for a week now I'm fairly convinced that if it were possible to send keytones (most $9.99 phones do it by default) then someone here would have found out how to do it by now!

    Why don't you just build it into the contact with pauses and such?

    I did that...its the only way, but it doesnt work .in other words..on other phones you hit either the talk or send button to send the tones, but on the Centro ive tried every button possible to send the tone with no response from none

    On a Treo (or Centro), you need to create a phone Favorite for that number and enter the extra digits in the "More Options" screen (tap the "More" button).

    Or you can simply build all of the digits, including the calling card number, into the contact. You simply choose the contact, place the call and everything works on its own.

    You're sure that you tried my suggestion. Doesn't sound like it.

    Yeah, I tried it..there has to be pauses in between as the promts come through...such as it ask for my pin numbers(I input) then it ask for acct number (I input),and so on. So it wont work with all the numbers ran together

    Use commas between the numbers to make it pause 1 second. You can use as many commas as you need.

    NO GO...a button needs to be pushed/activated to respond to the prompts as each prompt is timed differently. Just like a regular cell phone would use the "W" for a wait or an "H" for hard pause then you would press the talk button "after" the prompt is completed to send the tone. This would be repeated after each prompt, the Centro has no key to press to send the tones.

    Well if other "regular cell phones" can do it then I think they should have made a way for the Centro to do it also. I tried to setup something similar on my Centro. I have a voice mail service for the office and I have to enter the phone number, pause, password, pause, etc. I got it to work but it doesn't always because the time between prompts does change. I would like to have the ability to have the string pause and wait for me to press green button or something. I didn't realize other phones had the feature.

    In your favorites, you perform a hard pause by clicking the "More" button and entering the digits that should come after the hard pause, leaving the "Dial Extra Digits automatically" option unchecked. Short pauses are done with a comma and cannot be entered before the hard pause.

    Sadly, you cannot have more than one hard pause in a speed dial number....unless you use TAKEphONE.
