When dialing companies that are using automated systems, we have to usually select proper numbers before we will get connected. Normally even in the old days, we could store whole number or dial whole number including the pause and wait. Depends on the system those are usually displayed as "p" and "w". Exception is an iPhone which uses comma and semi-colon (think different?!). I should also mention that "pause" usually waits before sending another dtmf code for few seconds, while "wait" waits forever until "continue" button on the phone is preseed, then the rest of the DTMF codes are send.

Please implement missing functionality.

I was trying to find out if there was anything about it, but couldn't find any materials so I assumed it's a bug/missing feature.

I've tried to long press them. Anyway I don't have Sailfish OS anymore I have made this post cause I've found it odd that it wasn't there.

If you press the star symbol * three times you will get the p!

and what with the "w"?

Actually I just tried after reading the question, I did not know the use of p and w before! I knew how to insert them from Symbian
