In the grand PLUG tradition of sending replies that do not answer the

I wouldn't call it a "DTMF test service" exactly but you could get pretty
close by calling a number that you know is answered by an auto-attendant,
with lots of options you can press. The response you hear will indicate
which number it thinks you pressed, even if that response isn't an explicit
"you pressed number foo".

One of these I'm aware of is Free Geek's phone system. Several of us just
spent a whole bunch of time re-doing it, so if you were to use it to test
your phone line, it would also be testing the phone system, accomplishing
two tasks with the same action!
