A, B, C and D are actually valid DTMF digits (they belong in a column to the
right of 3, 6, 9 and # respectively, and have the "high" frequency 1633 Hz).
TTBOMK they were never actually used for anything in practice, they just keep
kicking around like a vestigial organ (compare how computer software for the
UK financial industry still includes code to deal with mediaeval pounds,
shillings and pence).
Is it possible for a 1633 Hz tone, loud enough to swamp the "high" frequency
of a dialled digit, to be finding its way somehow into the microphone of the
affected phone and confusing it when digits are dialled?
