    Anyone know how to insert a hard pause into our 650s? I'd like to program my bank account number after the 800 number and couldn't figure it out!

    Thanks in advance for ANY help!

    not sure if this works but most systems use a ',' as a pause symbol...

    commas are 1 second pauses. so if you need a 5 second pause insert 5 commas.

    I don't think there is a way to insert a hard pause but the way I have my bank account speed dial set up follows:

    Prior to setting this up you will need to call your banks automatic line to determine the approximate pause between entering your account number and password.

    Set your bank up as a favorite.

    Choose the "More" button.

    In the Extra digits field, put in your account number, insert a sufficient number of commas[,] to allow for the appropriately timed pause, then add your password digits.

    Now, whenever you dial using this favorite, you will see a new button called "extra digits" on your dial pad. Once the auto line has answered and you are ready to start dialing your account number and extra digits sequence, simply hit the "extra digits" button.

    A comma is indeed a pause. On my old 600 GSM each comma seemed like one second, but on my CDMA 650 each comma seems much shorter than one second. If you are having problems use multiple commas. That's what I do and it seems to work OK.

    According to the manual each comma is one second.

    You can use the "p" command as well. I think that's five seconds.

    That's nice. On my Treo 600 it definitely was. On my CDMA 650 it most definitely is not unless the time/space continuum has changed and nobody told me. It seems to be around 1/4 to 1/2 a second.

    I didn't know that. It seems like it's only a 2 or 3 second pause on my CDMA 650, but it's a much longer pause than the comma.

    If you are using Takephone, the hard pause command symbol is "X". I don't think the 650 supports a "hard pause" without Takephone. That is one the reasons I bought Takephone. You know it is a bit disgusting to have to keep buying all of these extra programs so you can perform basic functions that other phones do without the extra software.

    I have tried everything .. why can you not use * and # in dial strings ?

    If i put

    6165551212,,
    it works fine
    6165551212,,#
    it wont even offer me the choice to dial its like it no longer considers it a phone number ?? I need to dial # to access my voicemail at work ..

    These commas and p's and stuff only work in favorites, right? That's where I got mine working.

    Can you tell me exactly where and how you have it setup ?

    I.e. i've tried going into the phone app making a button a "speed dial" and giving it phone #
    6165551212,, and then if i hit alt - B (for the pound) it just beeps at me wont let me put a pound in there. If i put a # in any contacts phone number i cant dial it from there .. so what do you mean by "favorites"

    Keep the phone number 6165551212 and then tap "More" (bottom RH side). Put the ,, etc. in the "Extra Digits" field and it should work.
    "There has always been a tension in conservatism between those who favor more liberty and those who want more morality. But what's indisputable is that Bush's 'compassionate conservatism' is a move toward the latter - the use of the government to impose and subsidize certain morals over others. He is fusing big government liberalism with religious right moralism. It's the nanny-state with more cash." -- www.AndrewSullivan.com

    To enter a # symbol, use OPTION-B -- not ALT-B.

    Ok got that to work .. bummer so if i cant have the # sign in a "contact" phone i cant use the voice dial with my work voice mail right ?

    So like the 600, you still can only use pauses & extra digits in favorites, not regular contacts..? bleh

    And voice dial can only call people on the contact list, so ya cant voice dial anyone using an extension. bleh again..

    You should be able to. Make sure you have the box for "dial extra digits automatically" checked (under "more").

    I'm out of my mind. But feel free to leave a message.

    There isn't any "more" or extra digits area in the regular contacts area
