How do you add an extension to a phone number?
I'm having a hard time adding an extension to a contacts phone number. I see where you can put ";", but it still asks you if you want to "send these tones". Is there a way to add an extension where it automatically dials it, rather than being prompted to hit ok upon pressing call?

You need to add a "pause" to the dial string.
Basically, edit the phone number, put the cursor where you need it and select the "*#(" key. Then choose pause, instead of wait.
A "pause" will be displayed as a comma (,) and a "wait" will be displayed as a semi-colon (. A pause will stop the calling sequence for two seconds and a wait will pause the calling sequence until you enter a number or press a key. If you need more than 2 seconds, just add more pauses.
