Windows Mobile and Smarthone with Keyboard

Today, i noticed that with those fency smartphone running Windows Mobile 2005 there is
a feature quite important for the US market which is missing. Basic Phones do have some alphabetic letter grouped by 3 so that you can call some toll free number or number presented as a sequence of number and letters like 1-800-1111-CALL. There is no way to type those number on some smartphone with build in keyboard because the key are too small to display the needed information. So guess what you have do the conversion in your head or write the number on a paper... well not very usefull. So i recommend microsoft to add this feature by providing an access to an on Screen Keyboard as an alternate option to dial phone number using left/right/top/bottom nav keypad.
