If you create a Speed Dial of someone already in the VoIP
system, the person's name will be displayed instead of just the
phone number when abbreviated number is dialed.
A ‘pause’ cannot be programmed in a Speed Dial. The only valid alphanumeric characters that can be programmed for Speed Dials are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, * and #.
Some phones only have abbreviated dialing options.
Transferring calls to an abbreviated or speed dial is not a
supported UB feature.
