Why can't I enter the # sign for voicemail?

I have been trying to access my vm for almost 1/2 hour and I can't seem to get my BB Curve to enter a # sign!  It is very frustrating.  I can't even seem to enter it into my address book correctly, but when I do a note, I can enter it.  What is going on???


I've used the alt+Q key, but it just keeps entering a "Q".  Help, I am going NUTS.

Don't do Alt Q, just the Q key without the ALT.


I enger #/Q on mine voicemail several times a day.
