    Changing Default Text Input to Numbers in Curve

    Hello there,

    It's just recently that I bought a 9360 and using it for my work purpose. Prior to that I owned an Android. Now probably that's the reason where I'm yet to settledown with using BB well.

    My work involves calling our clients, channel partners, vendors etc. extensively, so when I dial numbers in BB, it displays text as default. Now, I don't want that, it should dial the numbers. Here after typing in the numbers, I need to scroll down every time to dial the desired number, which is frustrating.

    I'm sure there'd be somewhere in the settings to make the changes, but don't happen to find it. I'd appreciate if someone can kindly direct me to making the desired changes.

    Thanks.

    Barb

    And yes, sorry, I missed referring to my Dad's Torch where I could dial the number by default in the first place. So if it's there in one of the variants, I'm sure it'd be possible in Curve as well.

    Don't see why it should be displaying letters instead of numbers when you type in a phone number. Letters are only suppose to display when you hold down ALT while typing.

    Have you tried checking out your phone options? Hit the call button to go into your call screen and hit the BlackBerry menu button. Then select Options from the list. There may be a setting for what you are trying to accomplish.

    This is exactly what I'm trying to say.

    Tried fidgeting with all these possibilities. I've had a word with our office admin dept., would be handing over the device to them at the end of this day. Let's see if they can do something about it.

    But it's really strange that there aren't many people who've faced a similar issue with the device. That forces me to think that there MUST be an option where I can change the default input settings. Let me wait until next week if our crew figures it out. If not then I'll ask for a new device as a replacement.

    When you punch in the numbers, is it the search that is being activated and that is what you are seeing as text? If so, the numbers that you want to dial should be showing up directly under the search input box but it shouldn't be necessary to scroll down and select dial. If you press the green dial button pictured here the phone will dial the number you have keyed in.
