    Lightbulb TIP: Dialing Letters

    Advertisement



    Ever wondered how to dial letters for those phone numbers like:

    1.888.GET.RICH???

    If you've tried from your BB device, you'll notice that the number keys on your QWERTY keypad don't jive with the number keys on a traditional telephone/cell phone keypad. Well, in case you just really wanted to know how to do it from your BB...here's how:

    - Just hold the ALT Key + the letter of the phone "number" you're trying to dial!

    Your BB will send the correct DTMF (Dual Tone Multi-Frequency) tone over the "phone-lines" and your call will be completed!

    (2=ABC, 3=DEF, 4=GHI, 5=JKL, 6=MNO, 7=PQRS, etc)

    Same thing applies when you are connected to a phone call and you are asked by the automated service to enter a last name to go directly to that persons extension or voice mail box!!!

    Now Ya Know...And Knowing Is Half The Battle!!!
