    Hello,

    Is there any hack or utility (takephone?) that lets you dial letters and converts the letter into the corresponding number?

    IE if you dial 1800PNCBANK it dials the corresponding number?

    Thanks for the help,

    neil

    I've found the best way to "dial letters" is to use the on-screen phonepad (the second of the four screens available using the hard phone button), which displays all of the numeric keys as on a traditional phone, along with the letters assigned to each key.

    i meant dialing letters using the keyboard and having it translate to the corresponding number... i figured.. since the treo has a keyboard.. why bother clicking the numeric pad when u have the letters already there..

    it seems like this would be an obvious feature, but the phone app doesnt do this

    After thinking about it - here's the problem - some of the letters are interpreted by the dialer for some functions: 'p', 't', ...

    so - if a user enters 1-800-THE-BEST - how would I know if those are letters or pauses ?
