I know how to dial using letters, ALT+letter keys. What I'm looking for is some way to see the "old fashioned" letters on the numbers arrangement like on a telephone. Can't believe I'm calling it "old fashioned" LOL.

when you are in the phone you get a number pad
if you press alt+1 you get w
your keyboard on your BB is what you see
when you are in phone you gets number by default but alt+ any key on the keyboard is your letter or symbol

Why doesn't anyone understand what is being asked. I know how to use the keyboard. The question is when I am told to press the letters that correspond to a number on an old type of phone, I have to sit down and draw out a normal keypad and see what number the letter corresponds to.

I agree, BlackBerry should have a graphic 12-key standard alphanumeric keyboard. My Treo has one as soon as I start to dial. There I can touch the graphic or continue on the QWERTY keyboard. BlackBerry is slow to update their interface since early adopters spent alot of time learning the early interface.
With that said, the only way I've found is to use the alt key while typing the letters on the QWERTY keyboard.
An example elsewhere on this site shows if you want 1800FLOWERS, you type 1800 then hold the Alt key down while typing FLOWERS on the QWERTY keys.
Just disregard the attitudinal-judgmental unhelpful other posts.
