When I make a phone call, I'm not sure how to say the snow-like symbol and "#" correctly on the keyboard of phone in English, or I have no idea what people are talking about when they say a word which may seem to referring to "#" or the snow-like symbol. Could you please tell me how to say them? Thank you.
The key labeled ✻ was officially named the star key. The original design used a symbol with six points, but an asterisk (*) with five points commonly appears in printing. "#" is officially called the number sign key, but other names such as pound key, hash key, hex key, octothorpe, gate, and square, are common, depending national or personal preference.
