    How to use the pound key during a phone call.



    Just got my new Curve 8320 and can't for the life of me figure out how to use the pound key during a phone call. If I'm calling to access my home voice mail, for example, I call my regular home number, then need to press # to prompt it to go into voice mail. I've tried hitting the shift key and the alt key both before hitting pound, but it still just reads it as "Q"

    Help?

    Thank you!

    can't you just push the # key?

    I don't think you need to hit another button.

    I know it sounds completely idiotic, but no...the # key is the same as the "Q" key, and that's why I was trying "alt" and "shift" before hitting it, to see if that would make it recognize it as # instead of Q, but no luck...

    Okay, I am, indeed, a moron. Just tried it again and it recognized # as #...perhaps I should step away from the new toy for a bit.

    Thank you...

    Re: How to use the pound key during a phone call.

    what seems to work for me is pushing the Alt key followed by the shift (or arrow up aA) key then the #/q key, seems a bit tedious, but after a try or two it's really just second nature. especially if you're used to locking keypad for number use only during typing. hope this helps.

    In phone mode the *, # are automatic without having to hit alt or shift key as you would otherwise in an application.

    what about 1-800 numbers ending with alpha letters? for example, 1-800- cingalur

    Just type in 800 and use the ALT key to type CINGULAR and make the call.
