Pausing After Dialing

Pausing After Dialing

Question:
How do you pause after dialing a phone number ? I want to be able to dial a pager number and then pause 3 -5 seconds before sending the codes or text string to the pager.

Answer:
For any Hayes compatible modem (which is essentially all common modems), if you put a comma after the number it will wait 1.5 seconds per comma. I use that all the time in dialing to make it run a calling card through, etc.
