You can assign a phone number to each of the 26 letter keys. To do that, all you need to do is press and hold a letter key in the Home screen or the Phone screen. If the key has not been assigned yet, it will ask if you want to assign a Speed Dial to the key and you can then choose a number from your phone book. Once a key is assigned, you can dial it by pressing and holding the key.
- You can access the Voice Mail by pressing & holding the “1” key
NOTE – When you enter a phone number in the phone book, you can press the Menu (BB) button and select “Add Wait” or “Add Pause”. Both options are useful if you need to send extra digits after the phone number (e.g. to send extension, password for voice mail or access code for conference call). With the “Add Wait” option, it will prompt you to hit Return before sending the extra digits. “Add Pause” will send them automatically after approx 2 seconds delay.
