Is there some screen that shows you what the letters are for each digit on a standard dial pad? What are you others doing when faced with this challenge?
The easiest way to remember this is that there are 3 letters assigned to every number except the number 1, 7 and 9. 1 has no letters assigned to it, 7 and 9 have 4 letters. 9 is easy to remember because it's the last 4 letters of the alphabet. You'll have to remember that 7 is assigned pqrs. I usually look at my phone when I need to reference this.
