    Question How can I get number screen..

    Advertisement



    How or where can I download the a regular keypad for my pearl? As you all know the number keys don't have the regular letters to them so at times when I have to type in words using #'s they're not the correct #'s.

    Do you know where I can download software similar to regular phone keypad?

    Do you mean typing a word when dialing the phone? If so press the alt key and left shift (num lock) then the letters to spell the word. The BB will send the correct # when you press the call button.

    All you have to do is type the numbers while holding the ALT key (lower left corner). That will automatically dial the number associated with that letter on a traditional phone keypad.

    [EDIT] Rcbjr - you beat me to it!

    Not sure if what your telling me to do is what I'm looking for but here's an example of what i'm trying to do...when I call my bank..the automated system asks me to put in my password so of course my password is a word that needs to be spelled. So if i was calling from a land phone the letter "s" would be #7 but on my pearl the letter "s" is the ? mark key. I don't know the number key in my mind so how would it work???

    TIA

    If you're trying to dial numbers that have words in them...like 1-800-COLLECT when you come to the letters just hold down the ALT key and type the letters.

    In your case I'm not sure if you will give you the right tone you need when inputting your password.

    Maybe you can remember the numbers that are in your password and dial them?
