    Re: Dialing numbers with letters in them (like 1-800-collect)

    Here's the funny thing.
    I always have this question in the back of my head - why RIM puts two the cap buttons on the phone - when you type, you can just hold down the letter a sec longer and it will capitalize. No need really for two.

    Why didn't RIM make two alt keys (L and R)?
    I say this as when I am dialing a company and have to spell the name, my fingers seem to have to play twister trying to squeeze around one finger pressing the alt key, the other hand trying to hit a,q,s, or z.

    I would love to suggest to RIM to keep the left cap key (so you can do the combo alt+cap to do the num lock, or hit cap for the word selection for copies.

    I would suggest the right cap key be made another alt key. Would be a ton easier when trying to hit the letters fast enough while dialing (and keep me from drivng off a cliff...) Anyone else have this issue?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Or you could use the Spell N Dial program that's available on this site to download, that's what I use

    So much nicer. I have been counting in my head "OK, abc is on 2, def is on 3..." and writing it on a scratch paper. You just saved me like 10 minutes in dialing. Ha HA

    Did you ever figure out what your very own phone number "spells"?

    The last four digits of my number are 0748, which translates to 0SHT.

    So I can tell people my phone number is xxx-Oh ****

    Haha I use to work at Best Buy and when people called and asked for phone numbers I would tell them the number (1-888-BEST-BUY) and people would say "could you give me the numbers my phone doesn't have them" and I thought they were retarded...Then I bought a BB and soon felt their pain...

    I am new on this forum and cannot believe I just learned how to dial numbers with letters. I have actually have to stop my car to figure out how to dial these types of numbers. Thanks!
