    Hi, this is a bit of a unique situation, I think. I have a Nokia 6030
    provided by my employer (via Cingular) for work purposes. The company also
    uses ATT Teleconferencing Services (among others) and I often have to join
    conference calls while on the road. I would like to use the speed dial
    feature to join those calls, but for some reason the "pause" or "wait"
    feature does not seem to be compatible with ATT's service.

    I've tried a few variations -- 111 222 3333p1234567# or 111 222
    3333w1234567# and even tried more than one "p" for a longer pause. What
    happens is the initial 10 digit number goes through and I get connected to
    the automated system and am prompted to enter my PIN. From there, nothing
    happens, I have to manually enter the PIN and the #. The wait feature does
    not work at all, but with pause, after I manually enter the PIN and #,
    suddenly my screen shows "Paused" and the "ppp1234567#" begins to count
    down. A little late, I might add. My guess is the phone is waiting for some
    indication that it's actually connected to a call before starting the count
    down and ATT's service is not doing that until after the PIN is entered.

    Any way to get this to work? I hate having to manually put the PIN in while
    I'm on the road.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    'w' means wait for a dial tone, so it's inappropriate. 'p' pause should default
    to a 3 second pause, if this isn't working then try a ',' (a comma). These codes
    were intended for modem use though, not robotics, so they may no longer work on
    modern systems.

    I remember the comma for use as a pause from a previous phone and I also
    remember it working well with voice mail. This phone doesn't seem to offer
    the comma when storing a number. From the descriptions on how to set pauses
    from both the Nokia and Cingular websites, they seem to indicate it's use
    for voice mail. That led me to believe it would work with the
    teleconferencing as well.

    I guess it's an enhancement we can ask for, who know?

    Thanks for the info.

    Did you try this for your voice mail? The phone would not really know if you
    are dialling voice mail or teleconference, if it works with one, it would
    work with the other. Did you store the number on the SIM card or the phone
    memory? A long time since I've needed these features but it would be odd if
    it did not work with your 6030 unless Cingular had disabled the feature, but
    I don't see why they would do it. Keep on working with it.
