Is there a way to have a number
for a contact include their extension,
and dial it? If so, how would I enter
the number into the phone

Example
123-456-7890 Ext. 23
or
123-456-7890 dial 1 then 23 after.

i haven't tried it.. but can you put "p" in for the pause (or "pp" for a longer pause) and then add the extra numbers?
I got it.... when adding a number, at the bottom left of the number pad
you will see +*# just hit that and there is Pause. I tested by calling
611 with 1 set in as the extension.
[I had to add five Pause before the 1 for it to continue the menu properly]

When I try to add another Pause and number after the first extension
number, the call drops immediately.
ex. 123-456-7890,1,23

I hope I can work this out. All of my works Office Personnel, I have to
dial 1 and then their extension. And I would love to have it do it for me.

You can use a comma to add a pause. In the example given, insert two or three commas between the number and extension, as follows: 123-456-7890,,,23 You may have to play with the number of commas to lengthen or shorten the pause. In my case, I dial into a teleconference by first dialing an 800 number and then a "room" number. I use three commas so that the room number is dialed after the computer voice tells me to enter it.
