   No, characters aren't sent, but I thought that I'd see them in the display
as the tones were transmitted. For example, how would the phone know to send
the tone for 'e' rather than for '1' when I press that key, or 'c' rather
than '8'? I've tried using the 'Treo key' before pressing the letter key but
that does not seem to make a difference.
