Description:This application assume that any entered digits should be finished with #. If user entered something but didn't hit # at the end  and execution timed out entered digits will not be stored in the VAR.

app_voicemail or app_auth behave in a different way:
they allow user to enter digits and finish them with # for making further processing faster
or user can wait for timeout and entered digits will be correctly processed.

I miss such behavior in the system for getting number from user and switching to entered extension.
Background() doesn't accept # as a char for finishing dialed numbers and assume waiting for timeout for further processing which is not comfortable for user.
