How to Dial an Extension on iPhone
- Open the Phone app.
- Dial the main number you're calling.
- Then hold down the * (asterisk) until a comma appears.
- Now enter the extension number after the comma.
- The individual keys can be any of those 3 or 4 letters, so 1 press of "2" corresponds to either an "A" "B" or "C". So dialing 1-800-555-APPL would be 1-800-555-2775 (just an example). This is the same for all phones, not just the iPhone.

- Navigate to registry key HKEY_USERSDefaultControl PanelKeyboard.
- Right-click on the “InitialKeyboardIndicators”, select Modify and change Value data to 2.
- Exit Registry.
