    So today I received a new debit card in the mail.
    I grabbed it running out the house, and saw I had to call in to activate it.
    1-800-ASTORIA
    So i pulled out the love of my life... my Curve...
    1-8-0-0-...
    wait...
    completely forgot i have a qwerty kb and had no clue how i could spell out ASTORIA with the number pad anymore.
    Back when I had my RAZR i could've done it with my eyes closed... but today... i drew a blank.

    Is there any way around this or am i just SOL when there's phone numbers like that?

    hold down the alt key and use the keyboard to type the letters. The BB will automatically put in the correct numbers.

    I just tried the same thing on the 8100, it doesn't seem to work, is there another thing I should be doing on the pearl to dial phone numbers that are words?

    I am not sure how to do it on the 8100, someone else will have to answer that one.

    Great Post!! I was wondering how to do that. I had the pearl for a day and had to call XM Radio. I borrowed a friends phone to see what the keys were. I previously had the Q and put a software on it called Dial Pad. This just showed you what the keys were on a regular phone. I'm glad I got my BB.
