    I've had my 700 for about three weeks now and I'm really starting to enjoy it. I used to carry a cell and an IPAQ and it's awesome having it all in one.

    But I haven't been able to figure out pauses in phone numbers. I want to add a password after a voicemail phone number.

    It's driving me crazy. I looked through the help and it says to add a W in the phone number for a hard pause. But the Treo won't let you add a letter in a phone number. So I added the W in the phone number in Outlook and synced it over, but the Treo wouldn't recognize it.

    Please help!

    It's not clear that you can do this in a regular Contact phone number, but you can definitely do it in a Speed Dial. Use the Menu button in the Today screen to create a new Speed Dial. Click the Advanced tab to enter extra digits. Each comma you enter there will provide a one second pause.

    Got it. Thanks! Can't believe I messed with that for two weeks!

    One of the members found another way to add pauses but I can't find it right now. Maybe if you search on "comma" or "pause" in this forum.

    Just put the commas after every 2 or 3 digits:

    888-555-1212 with passcode 12345 where you press # after the passcode would look like this:


    You'll need to cut/paste the entry into a phone number field.

    Luckily, I only need 1 or 2 (2 to be safe) pauses after the phone number dials. I'm impatient enough that I can't imagine waiting 2 extra seconds for my passcode to punch in.
