Quick Tip For BlackBerry Users When Calling Phone Numbers with Letters

OK — very quick tip to share that I just assumed everyone knew – but I find that few do.

If you are calling a number like Fedex’s “1.800.GoFedEx”, and you are using a BlackBerry, you can simply type in the letters into the dialing screen and it will automaically convert it to the appropriate numbers. Since the BlackBerry doesn’t have the numeric keys of a regular phone, going through this process in your head can be a bit time consuming :)

This works on my 8300 Curve and I believe with older versions as well.
