I dial the number and connect to the automated machine.
It asks me to dial the first three letters of the persons first or last name.
I need to type in 'cha' for example so I press and hold the 'alt' key and press button 7 once and it gives me a 'c', great. I let off of the 'alt' key and it gives me another 'c', why?
I try again. This time I hold the 'alt' key down after I get my first 'c' then I hit button 5 twice and I get my 'h', great so now I have my 'c' and my 'h'. Then I hit the ? button for my 'a' and I get my 'a' but then I let off the 'alt' key and it gives me another 'a', wow.
But that isn't even the half of it. When I'm typing these letters they appear on the screen but they wind up out of order so instead of actually getting 'chaa' like I described above, I get 'caah' for some reason. it puts the c in the right place, then the h in the right place, but then the a goes in between the c and the h and the extra a goes along with it. I have tried this a few times and have never been able to get it to work right. I was late to work this morning and was trying for fifteen minutes straight to get someones extension from the directory but I couldn't.
Edit: Now I notice I get different results sometimes. It seems to put whatever letters I type backwards for the most part, so since I've been testing it out right now it's giving me 'aahc' when trying to type 'cha' like described above, but sometimes it adds some letters in between letters I've already typed and it always gives me an extra letter.
