Default Newbie question about dialing.

Please Login to Remove!

OK.
So I wonder if there is a work around or alt key that helps with this.

Today I had to call 800.gofedex and had a hell of a time figuring out what number 'f' was on a traditional phone.

Please tell me there is a method for dealing with transcribing letters to numbers from an old school dialer.

Thanks

yes, hold down the ALT key while dialing the letters. Your BB will dial the correct #.

You're both welcome, that had been a frustration for me when I first got a BB.

Lol, and both of you are so "EZ".
