In addition to add pauses to an existing contact, you can also do a manual pause dialing that will allow you to call a number with pauses--either a pause or a wait-- without saving it in your phone book.

Below are the steps you need to do:
  1. Open Phone app.
  2. Enter the phone number using the on-screen keypad.
  3. To add a pause go to the step #4, while to add a wait go to the step #5.
  4. Manually add the pause:
    • Tap the Menu key.
    • Tap Add 2-sec pause to add a two-second pause. This will displayed as comma (,). If Necessary, you can add longer than three seconds by entering 2-sec pause twice or more.
    • Enter the additional numbers.
    • Tap the Call icon to call.
  5. Manually add wait:
    • Tap the Menu key.
    • Tap Add wait to force the phone to pause the calling sequence until you enter a number or pressing a key. This will displayed as semi-colon (;).
    • Enter the additional numbers.
