On your snom configuration (like ours) the phone does not start to create/send a SIP message until you hit "OK". At that time the entire number is there and a complete SIP transfer is created. Cool down a bit. The problem you are having is most probably just a dialplan problem. It takes some time and experience to get those things right. No need to yell here...
What's happen to you guys? I am not yelling, just asking.
It is sure not a dialplan question! If it would be a dialplan question, 
than it would be for each dialing, but it isn't.

You mentioned SIP message and that makes me wonder! Are we not using 
here dtmf ?? that is in my opinion not a sip message, isn't it?
If it is a sequence of "tones", than why is it different if it is in a 
string (like snom) or another phone, with single tones?
If we understand this part, than is the question, where can I turn on 
the system to take a longer break between "tones" still as a string?

Back to the dialplan:
A Voip number can have different length of digits. Each number is seen 
as a complete "picture", and so a three digit and a four digit number is 
something different. While in the legacy telephony the digits are worked 
down one by one and if there is no more use of the digits, they are just 
garbage and will be not used. Unlike in VoIP, where you can have a three 
digit number and if you dial four digit, than it is a WRONG number !!!! 
I just verified that: I dialed from 601 to  61522, however, 61522 does 
not exist, but 615 exists. Guess what? I get a busy tone! That should 
proof my thoughts (and that without yelling, ... hehehehe)
