Default Address Book, Pause/Wait Problem

Please Login to Remove!

When I add a contact to my address book who has an extension, for example let's say I add 1-999-555-1212p444, which would call the number and then dial 444 after pausing for 2 seconds, so far so good.

Now, when that contact calls me, I see a call from 19995551212 with no name showing. I also see two separate entries in my phone log: one for the call I placed with the contact's name, and the other for the incoming call with just the number.

I can understand the reasoning for this behavior in corporate environments where if I had 10 contacts all with the same number and different extensions, it would be misleading to display one of the 10 names on an incoming call with no way to tell who is really calling.

I just have a single contact with that number, though. Is there any way I can get the name to show on incoming calls? I guess I can add another number entry to that contact with just the base number and no extension, but I am looking for a cleaner solution, if one exists.

I believe that is the only way. And I did the same thing as well. I add the same number, the original number and another with the ext.
