When trying to use a contact number with an ext. the phone will say I do not have long distance nor international dialing on my plan.My previous phone was a LG Dare which allowed for the number to be dialed and the ext was then dialed after a release button was pressed. Any thoughts?

You can enter your contact number in your phonebook/contacts with a comma or two between the number and extension.  A comma should wait 2 seconds and then dial the extension, 2 commas 4  seconds, etc

1234567890,1234

Or you can try a ; (semi-colon) to pause and ask for you to dial an extension.  I don't know if this works on a GS3 or not
