I have a Photosmart Premium Web C309n and have the same problem. I have tried entering both '*' and '#' repeatedly to trigger a pause but instead hear the key being dialed during the dialing sequence. I have searched all available documentation for this printer and this issue is not referenced. This is a nice all-in-one but unless I can get this problem resolved, this machine is relegated to only receiving faxes, which is unacceptable.

To get a pause, locate the cursor where you want the pause, then try these:
Press and hold the * (star) key until there is a - (dash) on the display.
If that doesn't work, press the up arrow on the Printer controls. Hopefully, you will get a - (dash) on the display.

I just spent too much time trying to figure out how to put a pause in the FAX phone number to disable my call waiting. My Kodak printer was able to be programed to do this autimatically. Why not HP?
I finally figured it out on my own through trial and error.
I pressed the # key twice ## and waited for the dash- to appear. I did it three times to make sure the pause was long enough to get a new dial tone. The FAX finally went through so that I received an OK receipt. Fingers crossed that it is readable on the other end.
