    So today I called an automated service and was asked to enter my password which is a word and I noticed the number pad on the phone dialer has no letters on it. For example the "2" on a standard phone has letters A B and C. Any way to add this?

    Sorry, your right. There are no letters on the dialpad while in a call. I thought there was a thread that discusses this topic but can't seem to find it. Not sure if there is an app you can download or not.

    Just seems silly that the letters go away during a call???

    Why do you need letters if you're connected to a voice call?

    An example of why you would need letters would be a bank account. My password contains both letters and numbers.

    Or in my case I called Verizon and was asked to enter my account password which is a word. I had to run to my house phone and look at the keypad to determine which letters corresponded to the numbers. Crazy that these devices can do so many things but as phones, which was their primary purpose, they often fail to deliver.

    So true Marioval. I am going to be giving up my land line in October. After that I will be relying on my Ally as my...gasp...phone



    I had not noticed this particular problem the OP brought to light. I too have letters in some of, if not all of my passwords. This is something that I will need a 'work around' for.



    I'm still wrapping my head around the fact that there is no voice dialing, that was a mind boggler to me. Though I understand that, that prob will go away when we get the big 2 update?
