    Default Alpha-Numeric Dialer

    This has been discussed many times.... the dialer on the 5800 is solely numeric (I know when messaging it is alphanumeric).
    Has anybody come up with a mod to make the dialer keypad alphanumeric
    This would be great here in the US, as Nokia doesn't seem to include this in any new firmwares...

    why use alphanumeric? you dont need letters to dial except for the "+","p","w" which can be access by pressing '*' key multiple times.

    because in us the dial method is diffrent then in any other country.
    but why do you need this??
    it would take much longer in that way.

    In the US Nokia Cust. Care is 1-888-NOKIA-28 & I can't even dial them without looking at another phone. Can you believe that
    We have companies here e.g. 1-800-FLOWERS and others that use the alpha part as mnemonic devices. It seems difficult to believe that this is the first time (touchscreens and associated firmwares) that Nokia didn't include this.
    Here in the US, if you don't use the alphanumeric dialer for texting (I use the qwerty), then you have not committed the alpha part to memory. A real pain in the a** if you get my drift.
    Anyway, back to the original question....Can this now be done or not
    Thanks.

    ok got it... i know what you mean by 'different'. i think its possible since its only the graphics that you need. maybe you can request this to the theme creators?

    the thing you want is UI change and it is possible to edit a themes 'skin'. the closest thing that you can get to be 'system' is to modify the nokia default themes skin.
