iPhone: Can you put in delay to dialing string from email?

If I send an email to an iphone user which contains a phone number - the iphone seems to figure out that's a likely phone number that can be clicked and the call goes through.. Cool. But now my users would like me to go a step further - which is that the phone would call the number, pause say five seconds and then enter a conference code. The issue is that this is an emergency conference line so people are furiously fumbling with their iphone and trying to punch in the code at 3 in the morning to access the conference. With a modem I recall we would dial a number then enter commas and then add more digits which the modem would send. Any way to do a similar operation from iphone messaging?

If you insert a comma into a phone number, it will be interpreted as a pause.

So, for example, 14087777777,65467,341

will dial :  14087777777 followed by a pause and then 65467 and then another pause and then 341

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
