    For example, if someone's office number is 404-555-5555 x555, how do I get the iPhone (and/or Address Book on my Mac) to store the x505 field??

    thanks!

    Use ,

    For me, I just put a comma after the phone number. So if its an automated system, and I know I can type the extension after a few seconds you can just put a comma (,) after the number and it will pause before entering the next set of numbers. I've actually done this to automate calling customer support lines etc once I know the menu structure.

    Aka: (xxx)xxx-xxxx,,xxx with the last xxx being an extension and the ,'s creating a two second wait.
