# Autodial a phone extension on iOS

For lines that you often call into, e.g. Daily Standup, it can be annoying to type the extension each time. Fortunately, there is a way to automate this.

In the examples below, `111-222-3333`

is the line number, and `12345#`

is the extension.

## Option 1 #

Save the number in your contacts as `111-222-3333;12345#`

. To get the `;`

press `wait`

.

When calling this number, you will be prompted with a button that, if tapped, will dial the extension.

## Option 2 #

Save the number in your contacts as `111-222-3333,,12345#`

. To get the `,,`

press `pause`

twice.

When calling this number, your phone will do two short pauses (each `,`

is a pause), then automatically dial the extension. I prefer this option.
