    Hi, I have a problem where I need to dial a number that is in an application while I am on a phone call. The exact situation is:

    I call a 1800 calling card number.
    I then need to enter my account number, which I have stored in a memo.
    I then need to enter a phone number, which I have stored in contacts.

    The problem is that I dont know how to enter the numbers while looking at them, so I have to basically memorize some numbers, go back to the phone app, go back and memorize more numbers, etc. This takes way too long and I usually take too long for it to work at all. I have searched the forums and found out about apps that will let me dial straight from a memo, but they seem to only work when placing new calls, and that is not my situation. Any ideas?

    You can enter a favorite in the phone app with extra digits. These are numbers to be dialed after the call. Sounds like this is what you want isn't it?

    yeah. it is kind of what I want to do, except that I need to wait for the voice prompt, and I think if I do it the way you suggest, the numbers will get entered immediatly. I guess it is not a huge problem, I don't need it every day, just often enough for it to be annoying.

    Sorry if this message comes out disheveled I am trial posting from the treo, and I am still adapting to the thumb keyboard.

    hey, I just found the extra digits you were talking about and I think it will work good enough to make it a lot less annoying, not perfect though, so any other ideas are still welcome. Thanks for the tip though.

    If you need to wait for a prompt, you can:

    a.) Don't use the dial immediately option, then you hit a key (don't remember which one) to start the dialing of the string.

    or

    b.) insert pauses (use a , to pause about a second). This is what I do for the work voicemail prompts.
