+353 79 xx xxx john perso mobile
It was working fine with my former
P910, and my blackberry 7130, but it does not seem to work with my Pearl. If I want to call from the contacts, it launches the call with a few additional digits (it converts letters into digits) and the call can't hence go through.
Anyone got an idea on the syntax to use to make it happen ?
In the Address Book, when entering the number, simply hold down the [Alt]
key (bottom key in the left column) to enter a letter instead of a number. When you save, it will save the number and display it as you entered it.
My ISP is RCN, and their support number is (800) RING-RCN
I just created an entry for them, and entered the phone number as +1 (800) RING-RCN
and had no problem dialing it - which dialed 18007464726
. When it dials it displays the digits, but when it connects, it displays the address book entry and name!
