    In my contacts, I place notes after the number eg after an office number, I put ext 2. Droid 2 will convert the ext 2 to numbers but will not call out if there are more than 10 numbers. Help!

    Welcome to Droid Forums!! Sorry to say I have never added an extension to a contact before, hopefully someone will come along who has a better idea how to do it for you.

    The problem calling is partially solved by putting a comma after the number. Then it dials out even if there are more numbers or text.
    However with the comma, I cannot text to that person. I get a message I need a valid number. Does anyone have a solution!!

    Maybe try doing a separate entry for them. One to call that has the comma, and one without the comma intended for text. Just a thought, not sure how practical it would be.
