Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Add a Wait Into a Contact in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

Samsung Galaxy S5 has two features that can help you to call number with extensions with more easily: pause and wait. If a pause will set your phone to wait for 2 seconds before dialing the extensions number once the call is answered, while a wait will set your phone to wait your action before dialing the extensions number. By adding a wait into a contact, once the call is answered, a pop up with the extensions will appear to ask you whether you want to dial the extensions number now. This pop up will remain on the screen until you decide to dial the extensions number or cancel it. Given the function, you can use a wait if you're going to call somewhere that requires you to listen to the entire automated message before you can select any menu or extension.

How to add a wait into a contact?
As the example, say that you're going to call your friend whose phone number has extensions. The regular phone number is 1234567899 and the extension is 231. You can add a wait and the extensions number after the regular phone number so that you can set your phone to dial the extensions number at the time you want. See the following steps to do so:
  1. Open Contacts app.
  2. If needed, tap the Contacts tab to view your contacts list.
  3. Tap the required contact.
  4. Tap to edit the selected contact.
  5. Tap the phone number field to edit it and display the on-screen keyboard.
  6. Tap and then tap . It'll insert a semicolon (;) after the regular phone number.
  7. Tap and then enter the extensions number.
  8. Now, your friend's phone number will look like this: 1234567899;231
  9. Tap Save button to save the changes.
  10. Tap next to the phone number to call the selected contact.
  11. When the call is accepted, a pop up will appear to ask you whether you want to dial the extensions number now. Tap Yes button to let your phone dials the extensions number, or tap No button to cancel it or remove the pop-up from the screen.
