    Longer DTMF tones?

    Is there a way to setup the 7135 to send longer DTMF tones? I seem to recall on earlier cell phones I owned that there was this option.
    The reason I need it is to control a remote computer, and the current very short DTMF tones aren't always recognized by the computer.
    I have looked into the phone setup (via 111111) and also the phone prefs, but can't find a way to do this.
    Thanks.

    This is in Phone_Prefs, on the Keypad menu. The "Length" item.

    I don't see the length setting in any of the phone setting menus. Am I missing something?

    It is the first item on the keypad screen of the phone preferences.

    AlanB - thanks

    That did it. I thought that might be the right place to change it, but it wasn't quite clear.

    it is not obvious looking at the item on the keypad page, but if you click the help button, they explain it fairly well (although they don't just come out and say DTMF tones.... Sometimes trying to keep things simple enough for the most uninformed user makes it more obscure, rather then less.....).

    Sometimes you just gotta test out a setting before you're sure you got the right one. Yeah it troublesome, but do you want to trust that it works, then later find out that it wasn't like you expected?

    And once again, I took the time to do the search for you and provided a link to the answer. Signficantly faster then typing the answer again. Oh well. No pleasing some people. You won't have to read my answers to your questions again, because I will be ignoring them.
