Thanks for the reply, snowskier.
I've got other numbers I've stored using pauses to access various voice mailboxes and phone menus. In those, however, I'm "hard-coding" all the menu option numbers, passwords, etc. This new contact for my calling card is different, though, in that I'm trying to "reserve" an empty time-slot for me to manually enter a phone number before expecting the 8100 to automatically follow-up with the requested access number.
I tried just pauses in between the 800 number and my access number but I'm not sure the phone is even recognizing those pauses. The handset doesn't display "pausing for x seconds" like it does for my other stored numbers. Either way, it never automatically enters the final access code.
I tried entering just a wait. Then, when I intiate the call the phone will prompt me, asking me if I want to dial extension <my access number>. Other options are skip or end call. While this prompt is displayed on screen I am not able to manually enter any numbers, and this is where my calling card "operator" is asking me to enter the number I wish to call. I'm kind of stuck here and cannot successfully complete my call. It seems like if I could manually enter numbers at this point and then click on "Dial <access number>" this would work as expected.
Anybody else out there successfully configured a similar type of speed dial in which you need to manually enter a number string in the middle of other stored numbers?
