Default Pasting Number whilst on a call

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to paste a number whilst on a call?

If I dial a conference number (or similar) and want to paste a number to "dial" after the call has started, I can't find a way.

Thanks for any advice you can give.

What do you mean? I'm guessing you want to auto dial the number + the conference code, is that right?

I would use this in two different situations:

1) I have dialed a conference number I have been given and then want to paste the conference code (e.g. 6297159401#). It can be a long number to remember and is much easy to copy from the email and paste into the call.

2) I have dialed a Skype To Go number and then want to dial an international number that is not saved as a favourite.

Any ideas? I would have thought this would be simple to do, but the paste option seems to be missing!

If you create and address book entry, enter the number in the phone number field, then bring up the menu to insert a pause or a wait. A pause is a second or two. Add multiple pauses as needed to obtain the total pause time you need.
I'm looking to see how you would do it if you just add a number to speeddial with creating an address book entry. So far I don't see how to do it that way.

I'm in the same boat with conference calls and Skype To Go.

You can try one of the dialer program such as BerryDialer. Be warn that all the dialer programs revolve around using a calling cards. Be warn they all revolves around using a calling card. Some tweaking is needed.

What did I miss in the OP's issue? Is it that the codes are not constant like they would be in a weekly conference call where the conference code is the same all the time, or you voice mail number and password?

Thanks for your replies.

The numbers to type after the initial call are different each time, so saving them in a contact doesn't help.

All it needs is to be able to paste a number whilst on a call..... Any ideas?

Sounds like x14 has the answer. I personally don't have any experience with dialer apps.

I just had a look at BerryDialer and can't see how it helps without having to set-up a new entry each time.

There must be enough people trying to use conference numbers or Skype To Go... Any other ideas?

I have found a solution (thanks to x14) that does everything I need:
EasyDialer
(Link in post above as I cannot post a link)

It works well with Skype To Go and has can dial conference codes with the latest version.

Thanks x14 and aiharkness for your help.

IMHO EasyDialer has the most potential.
