If you know the extension of the person you’re trying to reach, you may enter it anytime or press 1 for more options. Hi, please listen carefully since our menu has changed. For sales and marketing, press 2. For customer support, press 3. For accounting, press 4…

You know how annoying these long messages can be, especially when you know exactly what extension you want to reach. Today, thanks to iPhone Download Blog reader Carn, I’d like to give you a quick tip on how to add an extension to a contact’s phone number, so you never have to type this extension ever again.

1. Create or go to an existing contact.

2. Edit his phone number.

3. Make sure the cursor is at the end of the phone number and tap ” + * # ” at the bottom left of the keyboard.

4. Tap “pause”, which will add a space and a coma after the phone number.

5. Enter the extension and click “Save”.

That’s it. Now every time you call this number, you will be directed to the contact’s extension.
