How do You Dial An Extension Number?

Answer

How to dial an extension number depends on how you are trying to dial it. Are you dialing an extension after calling a toll free number? Are you trying to dial an extension number within the same building? If it's on a toll free call, the automated system will usually prompt you when to do so. If it's in the same building, you should check with the IT department, because many phone systems are set up different to dial extensions differently.
