Default Dailing Numbers that have Text

Please Login to Remove!

Hey,
Just wondering if there is anyway to setup my blackberry to dial the corresponding number to any letter on the keypad. I mean if you need to dial 1-800-Flowers you can just type flowers rather than having to figure out where the F and such correspond on a normal cell phone keypad.
Anyone have any idea what I mean?
If so is there anyway to set the keypad so it will dail like that.


Thanks

Yes, you can dial using text. And perhaps this would help you in the future.

When dialing in the phone screen, hold the ALT key when you're ready to enter text. While holding ALT, it will dial the text into the screen, but when you hit SEND, the Blackberry will do the conversion for you
