Default Bold 9780 letters instead of numbers when typing

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Experts

I have got a BB bold 9780 ,,,,when I try to send an SMS to a phone number that isn't in my " Contacts" (address book) ,,,,the BlackBerry converts this phone numbers to letters.

For instance this phone number +442072997080 isn't save in my address book.

If I type in : +442072997080 the BlackBerry converts it to : +sse0zeccz0x0 as a subsequent the text message (SMS) fails to be sent with the below error :

Quote:
Sys Alert
Transaction failed - 1 invalid address - 07307- You have not been charged for the invalid address

If I save that phone number in my "Contacts" I have no problem to send the SMS.

How can I configure the BlackBerry bold 9780 not to convert the digits to letter to avoid this problem

Regards

Hold the alt key down when entering the numbers.
