    When I call a company and they ask to type the first letters of the first or last name in the directory, how can I be able to match the numbers and letters like the landline phones look like on their keypads.

    I have to cheat and look at a regular phone to do it. Anyone else got an idea?

    If you hold the Alt button down, and hit the letter on your keyboard, it will send the correct correct tone to the corresponding number.

    I keep a list stored in my memos as well, as some people think its cute to advertise their number with a word, like 321-blastof

    That's cool, Moto! I didn't know that - that's a handy piece of info. Thanks!

    Sure! Found it out by trial and error a few years ago when we first introduced BB's to our business. I had many irritated users.
