    Hi Saakar,
    take a look at:
    To prevent users from maliciously redirecting phone calls or changing the behavior of a phone or account, the Phone application supports most, but not all, of the special characters in the tel scheme. Specifically, if a URL contains the * or # characters, the Phone application does not attempt to dial the corresponding phone number.

    The apple URL scheme conforms only to RFC2806 and RFC2396, and not to RFC3966.

    Anyway if someone has different info, I’ll be pleased to publish them.

Please comment with your real name using good manners.
