How many times have you tried to convert marketing style phone numbers like 1 800 GOT MILK or 1 888 CAR REPAIR into numbers you can dial? Have you noticed how they even stick extra letters in there so that instead of the required 7 digits, you have 8 or more? Like CAR REPAIR, for example, which is nine - two more than needed. And then after dialing 6 numbers you make a mistake and have to start all over again doing the conversions again in your head, only to give up in disgust and go looking for pencil and paper to decipher in write it out in usable form.
Well we whipped up this handy little freeware utility to do the work for you. Not only will it convert these annoying worded phone numbers into straight numbers, it also includes a handy little area code lookup feature so you can quickly search to see where a particular area code is located in the U.S. or to find out the area code for any city or state (Internet connection required.)
