    1-888-abc-defg????

    This may be a simple question, but when you know a number only by its spelling, ie, 1-800-Discover, how do you enter the text? You sure cant use the associated keyboard keys....or can you?

    Thanks

    I noticed that on the newer Q's the ones with MOL3 those programs are not necessary because when you start typing in a phone number on the top of the screen little time chicklets with a number and it's corresponding letters comes up and you just go by that. I thought that was pretty cool. So if you have a newer Q you should already have that. If you don't you can always get it by updating to MOL3

    We had sprint for a while and their phones did tend to have more features
    than or Verizon phones. One thing i miss is hearing someone while they leave a voice mail.
