    I am trying to insert a hard pause in phone numbers.

    when you call bank customer service number the account code is to be inserted after the 800 number.
    I used to do that on my WinMo phone by inserting

    8003431222p89898#

    the first part is the 800 number
    then the pause
    then my pin.

    I tried it on Pre , it didn't work.

    does anyone know how to do the pause ?

    I have my work voicemail programmed this way, and it seems to work just fine, in fact, I had to get TakePhone to make this work on my 755p.

    I have xxxxxxxxxxp*pxxxx#pxxxx# programmed in (as a contact with the name Work Voicemail). When I hit the send button, it dials only the first 10 digits, then there is an option to dial the rest, starting with the *. When I hit that, then I get another option to dial the rest, starting with the xxxx#, and so on. Works great for me. Try entering it as a contact--that seems to be the only difference.

    Have you tried the comma? That's worked for all my prior Palm OS Treos.

    'p' or 't' is the answer

    I use p. Once you dial the contact with this you should see the number on screen in the phone app. Tap the number to have the Pre dial the portion after the p when ready. I have one with multiple pauses, press the phone number each time you're ready for the Pre to dial what's after the pause.

    I know this is an old thread, but I had the same problem as a few folks here and finally figured it out.

    Yes, it's "t" for a two-second pause...
    and "p" for a prompt to dial the next set of numbers


    And, for whatever reason, it's CaSe SeNsItIvE. "T", or "P" will NOT work.
