How do I add an extension number to a contact number?

While creating a new contact in People, you can add an extension number to their number so you can skip the voice prompts when calling.

    • Tap P(,) to insert a pause before the extension number is dialed automatically. To make the pause longer, tap P(,) again.
    • Tap W(;) to be prompted to confirm the extension number.
