The Phone application on the BlackBerry smartphone automatically converts phone numbers that include letters into the associated numbers.
To key a phone number that contains letters, press the right Shift key or the Alt key and type. The letters appear on your screen, but the BlackBerry smartphone translates them into the appropriate numbers when the phone call is made.
For example, to call 1-877-BLK-BERR (1-877-255-2377) from your BlackBerry smartphone,

  1. Open the Phone application.
  2. Type 1877.
  3. Press and hold the Alt or right Shift key and type BLKBERR.
  4. Display the menu and select Call 1877BLKBERR or press Enter. When the phone number is dialed, the letters are converted to numbers on the screen.
  5. To end the phone call, hold down the Escape key.
To return to the Home screen from any other screen, press the End key.
To lock the device, set a password. Hold the * key.
To unlock the device, press the * key. Click Unlock. Type your password.
To lock the keyboard, hold the * key.
To unlock the keyboard, press the * key

To switch the input language, hold the Alt key and press the Enter key. Continue to hold the Alt key and select a language. Release the Alt key to switch to that language.
To switch back to your original input language, press the Alt key + the Enter key.

I hope this helps

The Blackberry Pearl is like a computer that has to be rebooted every once in while. Turn off the phone and then back on again. This is how you make the trac ball start working when it freezes up. It solves alot of difference operational problems..

it may be that your network provider is not able to make calls to that number. sometimes there's that problem. or maybe you forgot to dial "0" or "1" in front of her number. don't forget the area code as well

WHEN I TRY TO DIAL A NUMBER IT PULLS UP MY CONTACTS INSTEAD OF DIALING THE NUMBER


I think this is a normal behavior of WM. As you go dialing, it goes trying to match it against your contacts list, so that you can easily select the one you want to call without even finishing keying his/her number in. You just have to select the name from the list it offers and, with few operations, make the call.
I might be heavily wrong, though.
Just my 2 cents... Carlos

Dial *67 before the number you dial and then dial normally. Make sure to use the area code when dialing the number. Hope this helps!

Buttons on the blackberry pearl


clear sign of water damage under that button. 8100 is fairly easy to open with a T6 screw driver. then use alcohol to clean the area under that button. you need to also remove the while keypad membrane and clean under it as well

TMobile wing dials the last number multiple times automatically.


I think maybe the dial button is messed up (Under the key).
You know how sometimes when something stuck in certain key of ur pc keyboard, it will keep typing that letter?!
You might just need clean under the dial button.

Usually the 123 means that you are in numeric mode on the keypad depending on what program you are on when using the phone. There should be a button on the phone to change the keypad mode from numbers to letters.

About fixed dialing
If you enable fixed dialing number (FDN) mode, your device only makes calls to contacts on your FDN list. Your device can dial emergency numbers in FDN mode, even if the numbers are not in the FDN list. If your service provider plan includes SMS, you can also send SMS messages to contacts on your FDN list

so if you have this enabled chances are you have to turn it off.
this is how you turn it on so you should be able to use it as a guide to turn it off.



Turn on fixed dialing
1. In the phone options, click FDN Phone List.
2. Click the trackwheel.
3. Click Enable FDN mode.
4. Type the PIN2 code provided by your service provider.
5. Click the trackwheel.

or if you wanna keep it on and add friends to the fdn



Add contacts to the FDN list
1. In the phone options, click FDN Phone List.
2. Click the trackwheel.
3. Click New.
4. Type the PIN2 code provided by your service provider.
5. Click the trackwheel.
6. Type a name and a phone number.
7. Click the trackwheel.
8. Click Save.

and finally some shortcut keys:
To open the phone, press the Send key.
To end a call, press the End key.
To call a selected contact or phone number, press the Send key. To call a speed dial number, hold the assigned key.
To add an extension to a phone number, press the X key. Type the extension number.
To call your voice mail access number, hold 1.
To type a letter in a number field, hold the Alt key.
To type the first letter on a key, press the letter key once.
To type the second letter on a key, press the letter key twice.
To turn on or turn off mute using the Mute button, press the Mute button.
To turn on or turn off mute using the keypad, press the exclamation point (!) key.
To turn speakerphone on and off during a call, press the period (.) key.
To change the volume during a call, roll the trackwheel.

Dialing on 755p


Ok theres two ways to do this, heres 1 way: press menu while you our on the phone display (the button to the right of alt) use the 5 way navigator to move to the right, scroll down to phone display options. Below the Show Dial Pad/ Show Wallpaper, you'll see where it says typing dials phone number change that to typing starts contact search. This will permanently make it liek your old treo. If you wanna dial numbers press the white button to thte left of z and start dialing the numbers.

Version 2: If you dial normally it will dial numbers, if you press th white button to the left of z then type contact name also works.

hopes this help
