Default Bold 9900 - Enter number whilst in call to dial afterwards

Please Login to Remove!

Please tell me that in some way the Bold can do this, because I can't do this and it certainly would be pathetic if this cannot be done.

Whilst in a call, I enter a number that the second party reads to me, so that I can call this number after the current call. Now every time the current call ends ( I end the call or I wait that the second party end the call ) the BB 9900 throws the number I entered away.

The other day I entered a number to dial and before I could, I received an incoming call. I let the call end itself and surprise surprise, in such fashion it also throws the number away.

Any idea what I should do ? Thanks

Here is what I might do. Set options to disable dial from home beforehand. When in the call, switch to the home screen. Use the D shortcut to open the notepad. Type the number. After ending the call, click the number on the notepad screen to dial.

So this is a feature not present? Sheesh even a old nokia can do this, not to mention Sony. BB really does have some strange ways.

I take your word the "feature" is not present. I've never tried what you describe.

The steps I describe to switch screens and open notepad can be performed in an instant. There may be other ideas, as well.

While in a call, press Menu > Notes. Type in the information. Press the Escape key. End the call. Press Phone. Highlight the phone call. Press Menu > View > Call Notes. Open the information and there's the number.

If I recall correctly, the setting is in phone options. What you want to do is turn off.dial from home screen. You will have to open the phone app to dial, but it will enable keyboard shortcuts, such as D for notepad, U for calculator, M for messages, L for calendar, N for BBM, and so forth.

When you are in a call, hold the menu key to bring up the switch app screen and select the home screen. You can then use the shortcuts to open calendar or tasks (T) or notepad.

Call notes? Cool!

See, I said there are probably other ideas.

Ok, so with a mission we're one step closer. But if I'm not mistaking, you still cannot select that number you entered and just dial ( or copy and paste and then dial ) it, you can just see the number. I mean, then I might as well get a pen en write the number down it seems.

Normally, well other plain phones, you type the number in call and when the call end that new number is there and you just press dial.

Thanks for the tip so long

"Oh for goodness sakes", don't get the panties in a knot. It was just a simple question since I could'nt get the cursor there. The cursor does not move there, I just tried to press there on the screen and then it moves to the number you stored in the note, but the cursor pad does not move there!

Are you touching the screen or using the trackpad?

For what it's worth, in a test I did I was able to click on the number I typed in the note, using the trackpad, then select call number from the choices at the prompt.
