Is there a way to save a dialed number with an extension to my recent calls list?
How to Call a Number with an Extension on an iPhone
Calling a phone number with an extension can be daunting, especially if you are new to it. But with an iPhone, the process is quite simple. Here’s how to call a number with an extension on an iPhone:
Step 1: Open the Phone App
Begin by opening the “Phone” app on your iPhone. This will take you to the phone dialer screen.
Step 2: Dial the Phone Number
Next, you need to dial the phone number you want to call. Make sure you enter the full phone number, including the area code.
Step 3: Add the Extension
Once you have dialed the main phone number, you need to add the extension. You can do this in two ways:
Option 1: Use the “Pause” Button
If you know the extension you need to dial, you can use the “pause” button to add a pause before entering the extension. To do this, simply press and hold the “,” button until it turns into a “pause” button. Then, enter the extension after the pause.
Option 2: Use the “Wait” Button
If you don’t know the extension or need to wait for an operator to connect you, you can use the “wait” button to add a longer pause before entering the extension. To do this, simply press and hold the “;” button until it turns into a “wait” button. Then, enter the extension after the wait.
Step 4: Make the Call
Finally, once you have entered the phone number and extension, you can make the call as you normally would by pressing the green “call” button. The iPhone will automatically dial the main phone number, pause, and then dial the extension once the call connects.
Calling a phone number with an extension is easy on an iPhone. With these simple steps, you can quickly and easily make calls to businesses and organizations that use extensions. Remember to use the “pause” or “wait” buttons to add a pause before entering the extension and make sure to enter the full phone number, including the area code.
