    Adding commas into the contact phone number does nothing. No pause and autodial, e.g. 1234567890,,,555 -> no pause or dialing of 555. In fact when I tap on the contact's number in the dialer it only shows the first part of the number before the commas like the 1234567890 above. What could be wrong?

    What if you add a P instead?

    There is no "P" option. I see key options for "(Pause)," and "(Wait);" after pressing the "*+#" key.

    The contacts I have are under my gmail address. But, I added a test number with the comma pauses in the "Phone" storage, but still not working. I also tried adding the number with the commas into the "Sim" storage, but it said "Couldn't save contact. Sim card full.". This can't be true, because there are 0 numbers stored in the sim card. What's the solution to all these problems? Thanks.

    Just to make sure it's not an issue with a 3rd party app, see if the problem persists in Safe Mode: https://www.hardreset.info/devices/s...a50/safe-mode/

    I also moved this thread from the S10 forum to the Galaxy A Series forum.

    Strange, try clearing data and force stop the contact app .


    This my screenshot using Testing as name and saved with comma,numbers etcSamsung A50 inserting commas for pause in contact's number does nothing-screenshot_20220812_025412_contacts.jpg

    I think this is a problem with the destination number and not the phone. Test contact with commas to another destination number worked in safe-mode also. But, I should see the commas in the number when it shows that its dialing the number, right? In the past, I remember seeing it. Maybe it was on another Samsung phone probably. And why I am not able to store numbers into sim storage with that error message? I tried clearing data and cache in the Contacts app, but I still can't store in sim storage.

    Just to be sure -- you're opening your contacts, selecting that saved contact with the pauses in it, and selecting the dial option from there? You made it sound like maybe you were selecting it from the Dialer app's Recent Calls section instead.

    As for the SIM card -- is it possible the Messages app saved some text messages to the SIM card as well? There's not much room on a SIM, so it could fill up pretty quickly.

    I tried both ways, and it only shows the destination number in the dial pad screen.

    As for the SIM card -- is it possible the Messages app saved some text messages to the SIM card as well? There's not much room on a SIM, so it could fill up pretty quickly.
    How can I find out if this is the case?

    Some phones have an option in the system settings to show the SIM contacts, but my Pixel 6 Pro doesn't, so I can't test it. Search your system settings for "SIM" and see what comes up.

    I tried to search in the settings, but it says there are 0 messages stored in the SIM card. I think I'll just forget it and just sync contacts with Google. Anyways, the pauses are working with the commas, etc. :-)
