Keypad letters- how?!
Probably a stupid question by a newbie but...
Using phone keypad to input info into an automated parking system (via a phone call), it asked for car reg. My car reg number has letters in it.. how do you get the keypad to produce letters instead of numbers.
Any help gratefully received.

The same way you do on any other phone. The letters are arbitrary, if your calling something it can only read the tones which correspond to the numbers.
Unless you have some new system where it some how reads the letters. Maybe it counts the number of tones to determine the letters?

I doubt the system interprets repeated Touch-Tone numbers as letters. "22233" could be CE, or it could be ABE, or ABDD... etc, etc...
... and since different states have different arrangements of numerals and letters in their registration numbers, it only becomes more doubtful.
I'd ask someone familiar with the system. :o

Technically, a machine would be able to receive letters if the entry is in old school texting format (2=1, 22=b, 222=c, etc). But as far as I know, this is not a method that is in practice. If so, I'm certain the automated person would have gave him instructions to enter it like that.
