From the iPhone User Manual: You can use these techniques in your contacts to set up a "speed dial".
Manually dial a number: Tap Keypad, enter the number, then tap Call.
- Paste a number to the keypad: Tap the screen above the keyboard, then tap Paste.
- Enter a soft (2-second) pause: Touch the “*” key until a comma appears.
- Enter a hard pause (to pause dialing until you tap the Dial button): Touch the “#” key until a semicolon appears.
- Redial the last number: Tap Keypad, tap Call to display the number, then tap Call again.

This might be better -- also from the User Manual in the Contacts area:
- Enter a pause in a telephone number: Tap <plus, star, pound>, then tap Pause or Wait. Each pause lasts two seconds. Each wait stops dialing until you tap Dial again. Use these to automate dialing of an extension or passcode, for example.

Thanks. That worked. However, is it possible to avoid pressing Dial button to get to the next step ? Is there an automated approach by pressing one button to do the whole string ?

Since each pause lasts two seconds, you can estimate how long it will take from the end of dialing till the answerer picks up and is ready to receive your first input. If you estimate, say, six seconds, you can simply input three pauses (each is 2 seconds).
Then you won't have to dial anything.
