Angry Dialing Letters

Please Login to Remove!

Sometimes for example, I will be listening to my sattelite radio and it says dial 1-800-55-SIRIUS
Problem is, the Blackberry 7100g keyboard doesnt have letters on some of the keys, such as S.
Does anyone know how to dial a number with letters in it since they dont match up on the blackberry keyboard like they do on a regular phone?

Thanks,
T.

Default I can't speak for the 7100, but...

On the 7290, you don't even have to hold down the . Just spell out the phone number (e.g.: 800-NEW-DOOR) and the phone will automatically convert the text to the correct numbers when you hit .

On the 7100, if you hit the letter keys that dont have numbers on them nothing will happen.
Thanks,
