Default Phone numbers with a word in it

Please Login to Remove!

How do you guys dial a number with a word in it? For example 800-222-MIKE, for example?

The curve keypad numbers do not have the letters associated with them printed on.

thanks

You just hold down the ALT key and press the letters you need. When you press the Send key, the device will convert the letters into numbers.

Then I need to find another source of income. I will prepare the FAQ on "I have the Pearl 2, how do I make the camera make a sound when taking a picture"
