Default Dialing 1-800-GO-FEDEX

Please Login to Remove!

How do you dial 1-800 GO-FEDEX on your phones (specifically, the letter "x")? I know that you can hold down "alt" and just type the letters out, but it thinks the little X is specifying an extension number.

I don't think I had this problem on my 8700c, and I don't have a problem with other letter-to-numeral conversions (I dial 1-866 BUYMOTO with no problems, for example) but for this specific case, I can't figure out a suitable workaround!

What about adding them as an all numeric address book entry:

1-800-463-3339
1-800-GOFEDEX

Thanks for all of your suggestions. I guess I was really trying to figure out how one would dial "X" given that RIM put the letter-to-numerals mapping in place, but they didn't seem to account for the letter "X" being used.
