So, I just got my Pre yesterday, and was messing about with copying some of
my more important contacts over (until my new Laptop arrives, and I can use
Vista to copy the rest over from my older Win Mobile phone), and noticed that
the Pre doesn't save commas in contact entries. After no luck searching through
the manual, or with a search of the internets, I ended up calling Sprint's
customer support. Apparently, I'm the first person to call about this issue,
and so nobody could help really, though it was suggested to possibly call Palm
directly. So I went back to do a little searching, and found some references to
using the 'p' or 'w' characters to mean pause/wait on other phones. Not exactly
the results I was hoping for, but inserting a 'p' does let me store the bit of
information I need in the contact entry, and use it in the dialer. It simply
does a 'wait for input' type of thing, and appends a button for the next
sequence of numbers to dial, which must be manually 'pressed' during the call.
At least it will let me still use conference numbers at least somewhat more
easily than remembering the PIN myself.
