    Is this the coolest or is it me... just learned this

    Again, long time Treo user, ecstatic to be Curving it the last week or so...

    Noticed today, that when I called a number to some truncated office line... (u know xxx-xxx-xxxx, ext. xxx) that when the extension is in my address book, that the Curve actually, paused - then dialed the extension for me...

    Is this new or has it always been in the Blackberry OS functionality? I was so amazed I hung up and tried again... Bingo - Paused, dialed the extension...

    Or am I loopy and this never happened?

    I think I've seen it before on my old 7130e but never used the feature. Nice to know though!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~when you add a phone number, go to the menu and you can add pauses and wait for input. It is great when you need longer pauses between number inputs.

    I have an 8700g and I use it a lot for calling cards, I type in the calling card number and add a pause then the pin then another pause then the number. This way if the number is busy or I have to call again I don't have to pull out that anoying calling card again.

    Well, I be damn! I tested it on my 8800, and it works! But, another question I have is, I tried it at night, and the phones at work are on night service, thus goes straight to a messaging system.
    Now, if I called during the day, this way 123-456-7890 x123, would the operator pick up, or would it still try to get me through to my extension?

    This is a great feature, don't have the need for it as much as I used to but it was great when I needed it.

    It depends on your system. Does your day time number always get answered by an operator, or is there an automated menu that asks for extension? Some PBXs are set up for this feature and some are not. I use it mainly for my different voice mail systems.
