    Thank you CNN

    While giving out a number for reporting voting experiences ( 877-GOCNN-08 ) this November 4th (a few minutes ago) the anchorwoman (Robin Meade) stated "I wonder what those letter equate to. I've always hated that. If you have a BlackBerry those letters don't correlate to the numbers." Then she asked for them to be read out in numbers only! Great!

    But BlackBerry's translate the letters to numbers automatically when you enter them on the call screen. LMAO

    I just typed in that number and it didn't work. I know that wersdfzxc are all auto numerated so to speak.... but the others don't.

    guys she's a new anchor...she doesn't know anything other than what is put up on the teleprompter...also probably doesn't know half the abilities her BB posesses which is why she didn't know you could dial letters on a BB and it will translate the alpha to standard 10-keypad numerics....but it does make for a good .

    I had no ida you could hold alt and type in the letters as they would relate to a normal phone, pretty sweet!
