Default Re: Blackberry Pause Behavior

Generally the call is considered valid when the connection is made to the far end (ringing).
The issue your getting is the delay until your dialed number is completed and the link is accepted by the cell site . The cell system must then forward to a dial carrier for completion. IF the call is to the same cell provider the cell carrier can internally forward to the other cell phone. The calls once they are into the cell carrier (actually connected) or the Wireline carrier they are usually completed within a very few milliseconds. The problem is totally the delays in the "acceptance" of the call by the cell tower service. You must have noticed delays when calling someone. The call is dialed but you hear nothing for a few seconds. Once the cell system can actually do something with the call it forwards it and you hear ringing. Prior to that the call is in suspension. This is the problem with the dial into the conference. The pauses keep going regardless of the external delays. Your dialed number with imbedded pauses cannot detect the issue nor can the cell phone. Bottom line…not much you can do about the issue. All carriers have overload issues.
