    I am unable to get this to work

    I have a phone # -- 877-234-2343
    With an access code -- 3469281
    and also a host code -- 3389

    I put the following string into my contact

    877-234-2343,,,3469281#,,,*,,3389#

    With my Windows 8 phone, this worked and I could click my pinned number and the bridge would dial. In Windows 10, what is the trick to get this to work?

    What happens is it dials the phone number, but not the access or host code portion.

    Have you tried replacing the commas with p for pause? Both work on Android phones.

    I found a discussion on another website. The number was listed as type of Mobile. If you change it to Work, it magically works. BOGUS IMHO, but it now works.

    Also, if you pin the phone number to start screen, then when you click the pinned number, you see a Blue Screen. If dialed from that screen it works. However, if you choose the number from the phone history list or directly from the people hub, for some reason it does not work.

    I have all my bridge # pinned to the start screen so I am good but the implementation is still awful IMHO
