T53W - entry of symbols from keypad?
I know this sounds really dumb, but our new Yealink T53W was just installed by our Internet provider.

The online documentation describes how to enter things like a pound sign (#) while you are already connected on a call. Typically, those instructions say:

"When you need to type in symbol such as “?” or “@” with phone, you can the input method to "ABC" or "2ab" by pressing soft key, then press star (*) key on bottom left of the pad to select the symbol as you want."

The accompanying photo shows the "soft key" to be the second button from the left underneath the display screen.

When I hit this button when already connected on a call, I activate the Hold function - no alternate entry method is shown. This is obviously a simple thing, but I cannot figure it out.

Anyone? FWIW, my Internet provider, who has just begun supplying these phones, did not know, either!
