In this tutorial, we will learn how to dial an extension on iPhone. Many businesses and organizations use extensions to reach specific departments or individuals within their phone systems. Learning how to dial an extension can save you time and connect you directly to the person or department you need to reach.
Step 1: Open the Phone App
To begin, locate and open the Phone app on your iPhone. The Phone app is typically found on your home screen or in the dock at the bottom of the screen.
Step 2: Enter the Phone Number
Next, enter the phone number of the person or business you wish to contact. You can do this by manually typing in the number using the keypad or selecting a contact from your address book.
Step 3: Dialing the Extension
After entering the phone number, it is now time to dial the extension. There are two methods you can use:
- Method 1: Wait for Voice Prompt
- Method 2: Manually Dial Extension
- To Dial an Extension:
If you know that a voice prompt will ask for an extension, simply wait for it after making a call. Once prompted, enter the desired extension using your iPhone’s keypad.
If you already know the extension you need to reach, you can manually dial it after entering the phone number. Once connected, look for a button labeled “Add Call” or “Keypad” on your screen. Tap it to reveal additional options and access your keypad.
- Tap on “Keypad” if not already on the screen
- Enter the extension number using your iPhone’s keypad
- Press the call button to connect to the desired extension
Step 4: Saving Extensions for Future Calls
If you frequently dial extensions, it can be helpful to save them for future calls. Here’s how:
- To Save an Extension:
- After dialing a number and extension, tap “Add to Contacts” or “Create New Contact”
- Enter the contact details and assign a name to the contact.
- Tap “Save” to save the contact with the extension included.
Note: If you have previously saved a contact with an extension, you can simply search for their name in your contacts and select their number with the extension already included.
Dialing extensions on iPhone is a straightforward process that can save time when calling businesses or organizations. By following these steps, you can easily connect to specific departments or individuals within phone systems. Remember to wait for voice prompts or manually enter extensions using your iPhone’s keypad.
