    Quickly dial 1-800-GO-FEDEX

    Advertisement



    Just found this tip, which I thought I"d pass on, in case others aren't aware of it.

    If you get a phone number which uses text (800 GO-FEDEX, 800 MATTRESS, etc.), simply hold down the ALT key while typing the letters, and your Pearl will enter the letters as the phone number, and make the conversion for you!

    Hope this helps someone else....

    Yep, I just saw that in the other thread. I never knew! I would always steal someone else's phone to look at the keypad.

    You may want to note that this function is multi tap so you do need to make sure you are spelling out the correct word on your screen...

    mmmm. when I called 1-800-GOFEDEX my screen shows 1-8000-GODEDEZ. so i guess the spelling doesn't matter.

    i have the .101 OS. for the old .96 you need to use multitap cuz it inputs multiple letters when you press the keys.

    Re: Quickly dial 1-800-GO-FEDEX

    It may well work for FEDEX because of the layout of the letters on a phone kepyad but if you put an S instead of an A for example the phone will dial a 7 instead of a 2...

    Anyone have the problem where it will double the letters? For instance if I hold down alt and press 8 once for the letter B it will put 2 B's.
