numbers - letters

Many companies list phone numbers keyed to conventional ketboards. Ex: Try dialing 1-800-T-Mobile on a Curve. Is there a way to do this? Some screen that gives the letter to number equivalent? It's the lister's problem for not also including the #'s but many do not.

Re: numbers - letters

Greetings, and welcome to the BlackBerry.com Support Forums.


Press the ALT key while tapping the letters, for instance, dial 1800 [ALT] TMOBILE . The BB will convert the letters to the proper numerals.
