In your Address Book. Create an Entry for your Telephone Banking number. In the work field - enter the phone number and then make sure the cursor is at the end of the number, press menu, add pause (this will add short delay for automated keypresses)
So, to this point, when you dial the contact, your BB dials the phone number and then waits for 3 seconds, then, where you go from there, totally depends on what the sequence of menu numbers you normally need to press to accomplish whatever it is you need to do -
For example - you want your BB to dial the number, wait 6 seconds, press 1, 4, 6, and 2 (all with 3 second pauses) then 1234567890123456 (your banking number) and a 6 second pause (the system is so slooooow) and then your 4 digit pin. Here's what you put in the work number field


That's it. I recommend a piece of paper and a pen - call the number note how long it takes to pick up. The menu numbers and the delay time between presses that the system can handle, and write it all carefully. And do a trial run, payong attention to any misspresses (using a bluetooth headset or regular wired headset is helpful for catching any mistimings.)

The other option in the menu is "add wait". It is a 2 second delay.
