Default Dialing conf call passcodes from a newbie?

Please Login to Remove!

All:

I regularly dial into conference calls having the same dial in number, but different bridges and passcodes. Typical meeting notice will look like:

Dial-in 888-222-2222; Bridge 1; PC 1234567

I need to dial into the dial-in number, enter the bridge number, then the passcode followed by the pound sign.

I have not figured out an easy way to do this from my blackberry without remembering the passcode. Copy paste the passcode does not work.

Does anybody have tips/tricks to do this easily.

Thx, Kris

you need to setup up pauses in between the prompts for the codes. Hitting the "*" key two or three times should create one, and you can create them side by side to have more pauses. You'll have to play with it to get the right amount of pauses.

Or create them in Outlook contacts, and then sync them to your BB

Default Here's how to do it

In my tips doc I have the keyboard entry but, and people don't shoot me here, this is one time that it might just be plain easier to use the trackwheel. After you put in the 888 number hit the trackwheel to insert a pause or wait.
