    I am contemplating purchasing a Hero shortly. I have looked through the user manual online to check out some of the features.

    One thing that I need is the ability to be able to send additional digits in a phone number.

    For example, for my work, I frequently have to call in to a Voice Response Systems. It prompts me for my employee number and password, separated by a asterisk. My employee number and password are quite lengthy and it's a huge pain in the butt to have to manually type this in every time. I would simply like to hit another key and have those digits automatically sent. Most phones have this as a standard feature.

    Let's say I need to call the number 888-555-1212. After it answers I am prompted to input my employee number and password (separated by asterisk) i.e. 744159*ABCD1234

    Does the HTC Hero have this capability because it does not seem to be documented in the user manual. It would be a deal breaker for me because I have to call this number very frequently.
