Dialing with letters?
I had not really thought about this until it was brought to my attention by a customer yesterday.

Say you are dialing a 800 number with a name or some sort of vanity in it. For example 1-866-CINGULAR. how would a blackberry go about dialing the digits that compose the word cingular? The number pad doesnt have the corresponding 3 letters per key like that of a normal phone.

Intersting thought, anyone have any suggestions or input?

All you have to do is hold the :alt: and the letters that you want at the same time...

What about once your in a call and you need to, for example, spell out a person's last name to be directed to their extension? Holding down the tab key doesn't seem to work.
