    Inserting a pause

    Does anyone know how to insert a pause into a dialing string. What symbol do you use? I've tried % , and W. None of them work. I can't find anything in the book other than you can dial "extra digits". Thanks,

I have a confrence call I'm on every day and I have it in my contacts and I want to just find it dial and have it pause for 1 or 2 seconds and auto dial the access code. I tired putting the NUMBER a P and then the code but that did not work?

    Sorry, maybe I was not clear. Put in the"P" and when the phone is answered, press on the small box on the right which says "extra digits". That will dial whatever yoy have put in after the "P"

    Aren't you supposed to use a "," or several commas?

    ______________________________
    Sorry about that - I will start from scratch:
    in your contacts, select the item that you want to use - I am using my son as one of those and will show you how I did it.
    In contacts, I went to his page and put in his work number as
    201-000-0000P101 (use actual number)
    I then went to the telephone screen, and hit the menu key and hilited Edit Favorites Button and pressed center navigation key

    In that screen I filled in the following, from the top down:
    Type - speed dial
    Label - Howard
    Number - 201-000-0000
    Quick Key - H - for his first name
    Ringtime - Default
    OK

    From there, when I want to call him, I go the telephone dial screen, hold down the H key until it dials and when they answer, I touch the Extra Digits display on the right side of the screen

    I hope this helps - just try it step by step
    Mike

    Hay michaelb92 that did the trick for me, thanks man. It's not as automatic as a pause and auto dialing of the access code, but man I could join that damn call every morning without fumbling for the access code.

    Hmmm....maybe its me. Because these instructions have nothing to do with pauses. And there is no "Extra Digits display" on my phone. Are you talking about the dial pad? Also, the instructions you provided are just the regular steps you follow for adding a speed dial, right?

    In regards to adding pauses, what I want to know is if you can for eg. dial an 800 # and add pauses to enter lets say a pin number automatically?

    Im still confused Mike.

    Ya, it's not exactly a pause but it's a way to allow you to hit one button after speed dialing a number and have it enter the extra numbers for you, be it password or access numbers for con calls.
    He is speaking about the speed dial. Go to Phone --> pick a speed dial --> add a number then on the bottom you will see "OK", "Cancel", "Delete", "MORE" . Hit "more" there you could put the extra digits.

    When you dial the contact via speed dial you will notice instead of the dial pad (on the right) you will find extra digits over the mic. Just press "extra digits" then it will auto enter those numbers for you.

    I am still confused. If I am entering, say a way to check my voicemail. On the 7135, I had , as a timed (+/- 2 seconds) pause, and % as a "wait for me to press a key to let it continue" "hard" pause.

    Try the KISS approach (Keep it simple, silly)

    7135 <=> Treo

    , <=> _____ (insert correct key here)
    and
    % <=> ____

    Thanks, hehe

    Added: Strange, I found this: Guide but issa no workie, comma doesn't work.

    OK, have you tried using the favorites keys? The comma equals a pause. You can also check a box for whether the numbers automatically dial after the pause or whether you hit a button to make them dial. Is this what you are looking for?

    Yes, I beamed my addressbook from the 7135 to the 650, and nothing worked. But after the posts here, and the instructions I found on Palm's site, I just cut and pasted everything *EXCEPT* the actual phone number into the "extra digits" area. Hard pause was as simple as not checking the automatic box. Commas work and everything. I guess it was an RTM error ('cept it wasn't *IN* the manual) hee hee. One extra keypress to get the hard pause I can deal with.

    Does anyone running Agendus for Palm on the Treo 650 figured out how to insert a timed pause ("," used to work with Agendus on the Kyocera 7135) in the contacts list after it dials the phone #, when an automated phone system answers, so the extension # will be dialed after the timed pause?? I don't want to use the Favorites Buttons for this since these contacts......are not my favorites.

    You can have the Digits Dial Automatically
    For example when checking Voice mail you can program your password automatically dial the digits. Your Voice mail is a speed dial. Just hold down the 1 key or it is on your Phone screen.

    1. Start at the Phone screen
    2. Highlight the Voicemail tab on the down of the Phone screen
    3. Hit the menu key
    4. Select Edit Favorites Button and pressed center navigation key
    5. You would see the Type Speed Dial screen and Label Voicemail
    6. Select the More Button
    7. Type p****# ( * being the your password)
    8. Select the Dial Extra Digits Automatically
    9. Select OK
    10. Select OK
    11. And then test it out.


    You can have the Digits Dial Automatically
    For example when calling in for a Conference Call you can program your password automatically dial the digits.

    1. Start at the Phone screen
    2. Hit the menu key
    3. Select Edit Favorites Button and pressed center navigation key
    4. You would see the Type
    5. Select Speed Dial
    6. Label it whatever you want
    7. Enter in the number (ex 18005555555)
    8. Enter a Quick Key (ex C for Conference, Cant use numbers just use the letter with that number)
    9. Select a Ring tone (Optional)
    10. Select the More Button
    11. Type p*p* ( * being the your need numbers)
    12. Select the Dial Extra Digits Automatically
