Default phone ext.

When I call a company and they ask me to type in the first 3 letters of a persons last name to find their extension., is there a way to show what letters apply to a regular phone in order to access the directory.

Thanks in advance

hold the shift key and punch the letter you want.

so if you're looking for smith...

hold down shift, then ? ?

pause

then m/9

pause

then 3 3

Sorry, it's not the best explanation, but I hope that makes sense.

So holding shift and pressing "s/?" will send a "7" tone

and shift "m/9"=6 tone

shift "i/3" = 4 tone


??? sounds bizarre, but is that what you are saying???

Thanks everyone for the help.. I am not a regular on the site but I always learn when I do log in. I used the Palm Tungston before the BB7100R and liked it although a bit bulky but love the BB. the calculator was much easier to use on the Palm.

Thanks again for your help and keep up the great work.
