    Default Call to numbers with asterisk?

    How make call to numbers with asterisk?

    Let say i need to call 16655*2 but device start calling 16655. Any solutions?

    Device: Nexus 5
    OS: Android 4.2.2

    Example - https://www.pilet.ee/cgi-bin/splusus...iirkond_id=200 - we use numbers with asterisk for tickets etc.

    I tried use 2 sec pause and wait - did not help (even did not work - device cut out pause and wait like * - it do not cut out only #).

    Please try not to post the same question in multiple threads. It makes it hard for people to help when they can't see all of the suggestions already made.

    OK - I don't do that anymore. I was not sure which thread is right for this problem.

    I suspect the asterisk is simply used as a hard pause. You might be able to replicate this by simply dialing 16655 and then dialing the 2 after the line connects, as if you were dialing an extension number.

    It does not help. Two weeks ago with the same SIM card I had an old simple Samsung (not even smartphone) and there was no problem to call numbers with asterisk.
    My colleague have 2yars old LG with Android 2.smt.. with the same service provider in the same package and he does not have this problem.
    It must be device problem or setting.

    I noticed this post in Google's product forums (which I assume is yours), and it looks like you've gotten the attention of someone official there (the person responding has a Google "G" next to his name), so hopefully you'll get the help you need!
