    Dialing with letters

    Advertisement



    To dial 800 or 888 numbers with letters how do you do it? I know to hit the alt key to bring up a letter but what if you need the 2nd letter on the key? I can't get it to work. Thanks.

    Example... To get 1800GOFEDEX type 1800 then hold the alt key and type GOFEDEX, when you dial the call it will transfer to the corresponding numbers.

    Re: Dialing with letters

    Ok I guess it wont hurt if I say it again for those who still dont know lol
    Just like CP6169 said, if u wonna call 1800GOFEDEX, here's how u do it;
    Type in 1800 then hold the "Alt" key and choose the number with the letter u need. IF u need to select a second letter from the same number then hold the "Alt" key and then press the "shift" key and double click on the number in which u need the second letter.

    There, hope this helps lol
