L For character entry when writing SMS messages, see page 46.
The dial keys are used to enter characters and numbers. Each dial key has multiple
characters assigned to it. The available character entry modes are, LetterWise, Alphabet,

L Each time you press a dial key, LetterWise will suggest a character. If the suggested
character is incorrect, press {#} repeatedly to display the desired character.
