How do you dial a phone number that contains a word when you need to use the 2nd letter of a key?

I am only able to get it to type the first letter.

Thanks!

when in the phone app its multi-tap not suretype. so you would hit the key twice (rapidly, not like regular multitap) and it will show the second letter

I tried that too and it still won't display that 2nd second letter.

For example, if I try to type "800-MICROSOFT", I'm able to type "800M", then I hit the bottom-left key to switch to text, then hit 3, and it shows a "U". No matter how fast I click that combo, I cannot get the "I" to come up.

Any ideas?

You have to hold the ALT key while pressing the UI key twice.
