How to Insert a Pause in a Phone Number on Cisco IP Phones

by Chanel Adams

Cisco IP phones are ideal for an office environment. They include features like conference calls, speaker phones, a large LCD display and light-up buttons. You can transfer calls or call coworkers by dialing their extensions. Just as you would with other telephones, you can insert a pause in a phone number.

Step 1

Enter the phone number using the keypad.

Step 2

Press the star (*) key to enter a pause. Depending on the type of Cisco phone you have, you may need to enter the pound (#) instead.

Dial the extension of the person to which you want to contact, transfer or forward a call.


  • Consult your Cisco IP phone user guide if you still cannot find the pause button.
