Can't dial *HP on Blackberry?

The lights were out at Hwy 54 and Barbee Chapel Road causing a 1 mile backup with no police in sight to direct traffic. I was going to call *HP (NC Highway Patrol). However, I have no idea how to do that on a Blackberry.

If I press *, it displays an A (since that is the same key). Alt-* did not help either. I tried NumLock, and pressing * produces it, but as soon as I press a letter key, it turns back to an A. I suppose if I could remember in my brain which letter maps to which number I could figure it out. There's got to be an easier way though. WTF?

Well, there was no accident to report, but they probably would have accepted that. True.

Well, yeah, now I can figure that out! :p I just couldn't remember the layout of the letters to numbers while I was driving. First time I've needed to do that on the Berry.

I noticed that same problem with my Pearl. It drove me crazy. Fortunately the times where I needed the correct key mapping were few.

If Verizon offered the iPhone, I would have already had it. An iPhone is not very useful if the network in your area sucks.

You should've gotten out of your car and directed traffic yourself.

Naked.

Bad idea. The all white skin would have blinded everybody in a heartbeat.
