Just call 1-800-MATTRES, and leave off the last S for savings! Sorry, couldn’t resist. This does lead into today’s quick tip, though. Sometimes companies get lucky when they’re picking out their 800 number. With three letters assigned to each numeral on a standard telephone keypad, they can pick combinations of letters that spell out something relevant. The most prominent case is the one mentioned above, 1-800-MATTRES, a short jingle I remember from my youth. Problem is, the BlackBerry doesn’t have a standard telephone keypad. It has a full QWERTY keyboard so we don’t have to deal with three letters per key. So how do you go about dialing 1-800-MATTRES if you want to order a new queen-size bed? No, you don’t have to visualize a standard keypad and remember that 2 is A, B, and C, 3 is D, E, and F, and so on. In fact, the BlackBerry makes it exceedingly easy to dial these types of numbers. You just have to use the Alt key. Hold it down while you type the letters into your call screen. You’ll see the letters on the screen, but once you dial it will reveal the super-secret passcode.
