    Well that is what they call it on the telephone keypad. Even today when dialing in to a conference call AT&T tells you to enter the passcode and then hit the pound sign.

    It's called the pound sign b/c the symbol comes from the abbreviation for weight, lb. it was common for writers to cross the letters at the top with a line (similar to a T). The more you know...

    Must be because I'm from Canada and we don't generally use lbs. When I think of a pound sign, I think of the sign for currency in England:
