    Simple. Enter the dialing screen, hold down the ALT ket while you press the letters. Release the ALT key, press SEND and the digits appear.

    Perhaps you are pressing the Alt key when you press "Q" for # as well. If so, this maybe why it's coming out as QPMT. Try the following;

    Call Button > Q > Alt-P-M-T > Send

    Exactly. You only press the ALT key for the letters you need changed to digits.

    The keypad for dialing on the phone doesn't change. There are still *, #, and 0 - 9 available. #PMT on a standard keypad is #768...just dial #768 on your Curve.

    Edit: Oh, and as long as you press the green Phone/Send key first, then the * and # automatically are assumed(no need to press ALT) since the green key activates the Phone applicaton.

    The Alt key is used to convert letters into the correct number once you initiate the call with the Send key. For example, this is useful when you're asked to dial the last 4 letters of the last name, of the person you are calling.
    You can press those letters while holding down the Alt key. When you hit the Send key afterwards, it will convert it for you.

    You can kind of tell the relative age of some folks. They never used the old way of dialing. If some one asked what my phone number was back in the 50's or 60's I would have told them KEnmore 8-4684 and they would have know to dial 538-4684.
    On the storm we don't need the Alt key as we can open the number pad.

    Hey, thats cool! I didn't know about that. So instead of having to remember that 2 - A, B, or C, you can just hold Alt and press C? (just for example...not sure how that actually works out on the keyboard)
