Dial through a Company Phone Directory using an iPhone
Photographer and writer.
If you hate listening to automated voice services but often need to dial companies that use them, then you will love these two tricks.
: 10 seconds
This method will allow you to contact a specific extension when calling a business.
Open your iPhone phone app and dial the number you wish to contact.
Add a star at the end, then the extension of the person you wish to speak to.
You can now make the call. The star tells you phone to give a pause before dialing the extension.
Sometimes you need to call a company but your not looking to speak to a specific person. You also donít want to deal with going through the company phone choices just to talk to a person.
Dial the number of the company.
Like the first method, add a star at the end, but instead of an extension number, just add a zero after the star.
Most automated voice services - even those that ask you to speak your requests instead of pushing numbers - will send you to reception or a directory services person when you hit zero.
Note: Some companies require that zero is hit multiple times, so this trick may not always work, but it will work more often than not.
Place the call.
