Using ALT after dialing

I need to dial into a phone conference. After dialing, I need to key in a code then press "#", then press "1" and "*". When I try to press "#" and "*", those are not available through ALT. When  I press ALT-Q, I get a Q and when I press ALT-A I get an A.

 

Anyone know how to get # and *?

Try not to press the alt key in the phone mode.

Re: Using ALT after dialing

I also have a number that I have to frequently call and enter a code and '#'.  I don't use the 'alt' key and all is well.  I believe when you are in 'phone' mode the numbers and symbols (alt-mode) is already set.   When it is time for me to hit '#' I simply hit the '#' key (top left key with 'Q') and '#' goes through and works.
