telephone number pad

I’ve been using my IP phone a bit lately and have made a few mistakes dialing pin numbers to get into the conference calls. It occured to me the reason why,  is that I’m used to using a number key pad with 1 in the top left hand corner and nine in the bottom right, a traditional phone number pad layout so to speak…

123
456
789

Whereas the number pad on my computer keypad is 1 in the bottom left and 9 in the top right ie. upside down.

789
456
123

I wonder how long before a ‘phone keyboard’ comes out with the numbers the traditional phone way around.

Before you say why don’t you have the numbers in memory and dial from memory..well you can’t put new random conf call numbers you don’t know into memory.

roll on proper intergration at the application layer.
