    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~well mikadad that sorta worked yes I can put letters but that doesn't give me the right #. What I'm looking for is some way to look at a list that tells me that on a old style phone that 1=ABC and so forth.

    This was taken directly off the 8100 users guide pg 17

    Type a letter in a number field
    • To type a letter in a number field, hold the Alt key. Use the multi-tap input method to type the letter.

    Hope this helps

    If you hold alt+the letter then it will automatically figure out the correct number to dial on a regular phone. So basically I'm guessing that there is a module in the OS that does this for you.

    Hope this helps,
