    Question Switching to qwerty keyboard

    Advertisement



    How do you dial phone numbers that are given to you as a word? For instance 1-888-8CAPFED. Is there an easier way other than looking at a regular phone keypad to figure our which number is associated with the letter?

    Hold the "alt" key to spell the word while dialing and it will come up the right way.

    Apparently, you press the ALT-key and type the letters on the regular keyboard. They will be translated to the appropriate numbers.

    (you beat me but your avatar reminds me that I miss hiking Sabino Canyon - folks used to live in Tucson)

    Thanks for that tip Aztar. I wondered if there was a quick way to dial words.
