How Do I Call An Extension Directly?

If you want to call a specific department or some person in a large organization, you are aware of how irritating this process could be, when you are forced to wade through a different series of voice menus. These systems complete with specific queries to the office.  Calling a number manned by an automated operator can get a person crazy. Almost the voice on the other end of the line lists your options at the speed of this stoner Neil deGrasse Tyson video. 

Below is a sly way to forgo the excruciating introduction and call an extension directly. 

1. For example, if you’re calling a friend at his company and his phone number is 234-5678. Your friend’s extension is 9101. Enter the generic number for the office.

2. Hold your figure on the button until a comma appears. This is in telephone speak as a pause.

3. Enter the extension and then tap the call button.

4. The comma you entered will guide your iPhone to call the main number first then pause until the other line picks up, and then dial the extension. It means you won’t have to listen to a robot voice useless list of options.
