    Say, Mr. John office number is xxx xxxx and his extension is yyy, how do I put that on my contact so that my phone will call the number xxx xxxx and yyy will appear on my screen so that I can manually input it without remembering them?

    what I do is to put the extension # at the end of the phone # 555-555-555 (123)
    it will show when call is made ,

    The #? So I just write 555-555-555#123? It didn't work, or do I get it wrong?

    Sorry I didn't understand about your explanation, my English isn't good. Could you please give me a screenshot of when you edit your contact to include extension, and how it will look like?

    go to people hub , find the contact you want to add the extension to, edit contact and add +phone, put the extension in it. instead of a phone number

    I use space and 'p' to separate phone number and extension.
    e.g. 12345678 p9988

    Ah, I see, that is a good workaround.

    I use space and 'p' to separate phone number and extension.
    e.g. 12345678 p9988
    How do you write 'p' in People app when adding number?

    I think I had it on my earlier phone, so when imported the contacts it came. You can edit on PC and sync it.
    Alternately, you can type the entire phone number and extension with 'p' in any other field (e.g. mail etc.) and copy paste it to phone number.
    OR you can use comma (,) instead of 'p'. Tap and Hold . (dot) on the phone dialer, it will pop out extra symbol where you can find comma.
    so 12345678 p9999 OR 12345678 ,9999 represent the same. They will dial to extension directly.
