    How do you dial a number beginning with * (asterix)?

    Advertisement



    Hi, I was trying to call my service provider (Rogers Canada) on my 8800 today & they have 2 shortcut numbers: *411 & *611. *611 gets you to the operator; anyway when I tried to dial * (alt A), it just showed it as an A. When I tried to use the voice call method, it wouldn't recognize the words 'star' or 'asterix' as an *, but rather the words star or asterix. I even tried to save the numbers on my address book, but once again, it won't recognise * (alt A), it only recognizes it as an A. Any suggestions, besides saving the 1-800 number to my address book? Everytime I called the 1-800 number in the past, the operator would say, "you know you can just call *611?"

    Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    While in the phone just hit the A key, which will make an asterick.

    Yup, in numeric fields you don't need to hit Alt unless you want a character instead of a number/symbol.

    This means that in your address book, you don't need to hit Alt to type in a phone number or the * # ( ) - symbols, for example...
