    When dialing letters in a phone number, the SureType BB will know which numbers to dial in place of the letters.

    And yes, use the ALT key, it's left of the *.

    Yep, figuring out when suretype goes into "numbers" mode and when you have to use the Alt button takes some getting used to. If you find you're typing a certain number a lot (ie your own phone number), you can save time by entering it your list of autotext.
