Wonder if anyone can help me store parts of phone numbers....

I am working on a telephone project which involves -

1.  Dialing a toll free number

2.  Entering a call specific number when I get an answer.

 

The code number has 3 parts - as near as I have been able to figure, they are

xxxxx - always the same digits

#### - different 4 digits

xxxxxxx - always the same digits

 

In the stone age, I would have called the first and third parts of this code a "macro", and I could have created these blindfolded on a PC.  But I'm stuck on how to start with my Blackberry (Curve 4310). 

 

Can any of the techno-gods on this forum help a little old lady out????

Re: Wonder if anyone can help me store parts of phone numbers....

Welcome to the forums Ivirgilio :smileyhappy:

 

Unfortunately I don't think there is a "macro" for dialing number like you need them to...if the digits were all the same every time, then yes, you could. This won't work if the second part of the digits keeps changing.

 

There are features for the blackberry that allow you to "wait" or "pause" between numbers. When entering a phone number, press the menu/blackberry button and in the list you can select "add wait" or "add pause" and it will insert it for you.

 

This article will explain the features better: http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB13907

Re: Wonder if anyone can help me store parts of phone numbers....

Thanks for your quick help.  So, it looks to me like I could build a speed dial for the first set of numbers, with a "wait" at the end, and then enter the rest of the code.


That will be a great timesaver for me.  I will be making 15 to 45 calls a day, so anything my Blackberry can do....

 

I will list this question as solved, and grant you Kudos.
