Joining Conference Calls and other automated solutions with a BlackBerry

I had moaned to Steve about the fact that joining conference calls was a pain as unlike his Treo there was no automated way of storing the post connection numbers.  Well apparently a way does exist.  Best described here.

“When dialing a phone number that contains a pause, the handheld will pause for two seconds before dialing the remaining numbers. When dialing a phone number that contains a wait, the handheld displays a Dial Extension screen prompting you to either dial the remaining numbers, skip the remaining numbers, or end the call.”

I can’t be the only person to have missed this feature so here it is!!!  On the 8800 I found the only way to add a pause or wait was to press the scroll wheel and select.  Its really useful for joining calls as I just store the entire number, a wait and then the entry pin and other keys.

  1. Hi Stuart,

    An alternative is to use the “n” key to place the pauses in the number. Perhaps a better way of placing the number of pauses you require.
    Add the saved number to a quick dial reference and you’re away!
