Default Phone Dialing Question

Please Login to Remove!

Can anyone tell me how to get the Storm to automaticaly dial an extension when I call a contact?

On my old WinMO device, I could put a number like 555-5555pppp123 on a contact. This would have the phone dial the number, pause for 4 seconds then dial the extension.

Thanks in advance....

When you input the number for the contact, hit the menu button and you'll have the option to add a pause.

I enter them in Outlook using the extension option in there. It is really cool, because now when I call someone that has an extension, I listen to the call and when it tells me to enter the extension now I look at my phone screen and a prompt is waiting that say "Dial Extension XXXX". I click on that prompt and it dials that extension for me. Works better than entering the pauses becauses sometimes it dials the extension too fast when you do it that way.

You mean to tell me I don't have to "trick" this phone into dialing the way it is supposed too? Wow.

Thanks guys!
