    I know if you set it up in speed dial, it will allow you to dial an extension. Is there a way to dial a extension without the contact being in speed dial?

    What happens if you just input the extension number after the call is answered, or am I missing something here?

    that would work, but I'm lookin to have the ext. stored w/ contact. Any 3rd party solutions?

    Hi,

    I believe an answer to a direct question is ok...

    I have two apps for this:

    TAKEphONE is a total solution that enhances the built-in dialer features (including what you're looking for) - www.shsh.com/takephone
    (there is also an advanced pre-release version at www.shsh.com/beta)

    CallCards can also handle this if you prefer not to stop using the built-in dialer (it does have some differences in the way it handles your request, but if you dont like TAKEphONE - try CallCards) - www.shsh.com/callcards

    Thanks.

    Seems like there should be a simple way to achieve this without installing yet another application just for 1 little feature.

    I know that with modem dialers, you could pause a few seconds using a couple of comma's. I'm looking for a similar solution. I need to dial in to meetings where you have a 1-800 number, and once the service picks up, you enter the meeting number and then a pound sign. So, for a modem dialer, it would look something like 1-800-555-1234,,34289#

    I tried this with a contacts record, and the dialer ignores the commas and numbers after the commas. keying directly into the dial pad and comma's aren't recognized either.

    Any thoughts?

    You need to use a favourites button for this if you dont want 3rd party apps. Otherswise - TAKEphONE...
