Customer service is dead. On the flip side, I know how to dial numbers with letters now!

Today I spent too much time on this thing trying to do something that should be simple, and most of the problem comes from the fact that customer service is dead. You can’t get a cheeseburger for less than 20 minutes at the drive-thru these days, let alone a package delivered the way it’s supposed to be.

My family has been trying to mail me something for my birthday for a good month now and it’s been shipped back & forth twice already. Today I was trying to find out which post office had my package because the delivery notice they left had no address on it (wtf?).


..on the flip side, I know how to dial numbers containing only letters on my Blackberry now! This seemed tricky because the letters & numbers are spread out more like a computer keyboard instead of a phone, so the numbers and letters don’t correspond in the same way. Ready for the simple answer? Just dial the number part (800, 976, area code, etc.) and then hold the ALT button while you press the letters. Then just hit send and it will convert the letters to numbers automatically.

Why didn’t I think to Google that earlier? Don’t laugh.. If you’re reading this it’s because you didn’t think to Google it either. I’m not sure why I thought this was an issue but I guess these things ain’t that bad after all. No. Wait … Of course they are!

  1. That’s freakin’ amazing. No longer do I have to ask a friend that still uses a 12-button phone.
