* yes, # is the default end of dial digit so it's not really used for that

Hi friend,

In addition to wildcard characters, the following characters can be used in the destination pattern:

Asterisk (*) and pound sign (#)-These characters on standard touch-tone dial pads can be used anywhere in the pattern. They can be used as the leading character (for example, *650)

Wildcard symbols such as the period (.), asterisk (*), percent sign (%), plus sign (+), and question mark (?) are not valid in translation rules. The router ignores these symbols when converting a number if they are used in a translation rule.

If helps, please rate.

Regards and good luck,

- Adrián
