This issue DOES occur on Flame 2.2 builds.
The asterisk will be typed, then deleted in the dial field.

I don't think the comma should be displayed here, as it represent a pause in the dialing sequence and a pause at the beginning is not allowed[1]. I think the asterisk should remain displayed in that case. What do you think, Carrie?

If the field is blank, long-tapping the asterisk key will only display the asterisk symbol, not a comma. So we still need to fix the current behavior (the asterisk will just disappear). Thanks!
