Yes, but - is a very common separator for phone numbers - its much
easier to on the eye to split (for us in Oz its 4-4 split, nnnn-nnnn)
and is often how its written/displayed.  I think (dont have it to check)
my treo handles it fine.  There are also other characters such as ","
which I think means a pause in a dial string (google "comma pause dial
string" for some other characters used - blackberry's use a number of
pause characters it seems) - needed for some PBX's, voice mail systems
and the like.  So they should be handled by default as others do.
