    Question Entering numeric digits while in call

    Advertisement



    Alright, this one is driving me NUTS -

    How do you use the keypad to enter a name.

    So, you call into an office and the voice mail says, "input the first four digits of the person's last name."

    How the heck do you do that - aside from memorizing what letters are on what number?

    Thanks

    Les

    Press the ALT Key while Typing.

    Any time you need to enter letters in a numeric field, the ALT key works in the opposite manner from normal.

    Hope this helps

    I'll second that. Actually, I think it's the NUM key. But it's just like you can type an alphanumeric phone number, ie, 1-800-BLAH-BLAH, etc.

    But that is for when you are dialing the call, what about after the call is placed?

    I'm not sure that it works that way.

    However, if you know the key sequence required to get to where you enter the 'name', then dial the entire string before pressing send. Use waits / pauses to prevent from dialing additional digits too soon.

    On the 8700, if you it is the ALT key, and it appears to work just fine It inputs the letters instead of the numbers. I assume the tones are correctly coordinated with the DMFT (or what ever the acronym is) tones.
