To dial an extension on both iPhone and Android, you can follow these steps:
- Launch the Phone app.
- Enter the main phone number (the number before the extension).
- To add a pause after the main phone number, press and hold down the * (asterisk) button on the keypad. This will insert a comma after your phone number.
- After the comma, enter the extension number you want to connect to.
- Press the Call key. Your iPhone will directly connect you to the specified extension number.
For Android: The steps to dial an extension on Android might vary slightly depending on the Phone app you use. Here are the general steps for Google’s official Phone app:
- Open the Phone app.
- Type the main phone number (without the extension).
- Beside the number, tap the three dots to access additional options.
- From the menu, you’ll have options to add a pause or wait, which can be used to dial the extension.
(Note: The exact steps and options might differ based on the Android device and the version of the Phone app.)
