Hi! Sometimes phone numbers have words in them (like 800-GO-FEDEX). If you have a blackberry, you don’t have a telephone keypad to know which numbers to dial.
Our friends at blackberry have figured that out for us. When you have a word-based phone number to call, go to the phone screen and hold the ‘alt’ key down as you type the letters on the keyboard. Your blackberry knows the numbers associated with the letters and will dial it for you properly.
Pretty cool, eh?
