The telephone number string (including the post-dial DTMF tones) is limited to 30 digits on certain Series 40 devices.


The MIDlet.platformRequest(String) method call can be used to initiate a phone call using the "tel:<number>" string as the parameter. The telephone number can also contain post-dial DTMF tones.

The length of this string is limited on certain Series 40 devices.


There is no workaround available.
