Default Number Extensions for Smart Dial?

Please Login to Remove!

How do I put an extension in the address book to be used by smart dial?

In the 'phone' options you can set what number to dial to call your work and how long to wait for the extension. I'd love to use this, but where in the address book can I put extensions? There appears to be no mapping for this from Outlook.

A couple of things - enter the phone number like so:

(925)551-5555 x5555

The BB wil interpret the x as a 'wait' command.

Alternatively, or if you have multiple waits/pauses for a single number, enter the 10 digit number, hit the click wheel and select Add pause or Add wait - pause will pause 2 seconds, wait will prompt you for the time to dial.

But in the smart dual menu, there is an option to enter your companies phone number to dial for an extension. How does that work?

If you enter in your company's main phone number there, say 123-456-7890, then if you make a call by dialing just "x" and the extension number, your phone will call the main phone number, then automatically pause and dial the extension you entered. Cool huh?

Default What about from Outlook?

I have to dial into various conference calls during the day that require a passcode. The Apt. reminer window pops up and gives me the con-call number. The BB highlights the phone number - VERY COOL - but I can't get the ,/P or x to work so that the BB recognizes the phone+code.

Any assistance?
