If I understand what you are asking, you want to be able to dial a phone number and have it then log you in to a conference call. I have a similar situation where I need to enter a PIN after dialing a toll-free number to log into a conference call. What I have setup on my BB is a phone number that has the following syntax:
The exclamation mark separates the phone number from the PIN. I need to also have the # symbol at the end because that is what the conference call system requires at the end of the PIN. Since I could not find a way to enter the exclamation mark in my Address Book, I emailed myself the conference phone number and PIN in this format. When you dial this number, it dials the phone number first then pops up a dialog asking if it should dial the "extension" now, I wait until the conference system answers then click the trackwheel to have it dial the extension.
