Default corporate dialing advanced features

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 8700r and i was disappointed with the corporate extension dialing feature.

The options that comes with the units allows you to dial a phone number, wait for xx seconds and then dial the extension as saved in the contact list...

I am looking for a hack or a small program that would allow dialing with additional data. With today phone system, this is a must...

For example. company that I work, once you dial the company number you have to go though a menu and after you enter the extension you also need to enter the # key.. As such what would be nice is the ability to enter pre and post extension combination keys as follows:

514-828-1212 <wait 2 seconds><enter a key sequence><wait 2 seconds><enter extension><enter #>

Any help is appreciated. thanks

In the extension part of your contact, i would put


ex. p12345p1234#

How to add a pause ? in the Extension (or any field with phone numbers) open the menu , and youll see "add wait" and "add pause"

type "," for a pause in the extension/number field
