Do you know in the USA, you may get a telephone number like 555 343 HELLO. How do you dial the letters from a UK phone.

Thanks in advance

Just hit the number a letter corresponds to on your dial. For example, HELLO is 4-3-5-5-6.

So why not just 43556?

The important thing is that he is always 555 first :p :D

I always thought that was just a joke not a real phone number.

It's a gimmick that has worked for a long time.
