CCB Tech Articles, Donna’s Low Tech Tips, Using the Touch Tone Telephone, March 19, 2018

March 19 2018


Hello there and I’m Donna Jodhan thanking you for allowing me to come into your inbox.


Today, I’d like to talk about how you go about using the telephone.

So here we go.



Touch Tone Telephones



* All touch tone telephones are identical in the display of the numbered buttons, making it                                    easy to memorize the location of each number.


Numbers are arranged in this way:


top row from left to right –  1 2 3

second row from left to right-  4 5 6

third row from left to right –  7 8 9

zero is in the centre of the fourth row.

Use your index finger to skim the buttons and locate the desired                 numbers.


* Try the three-finger method in which the second row of buttons (4,5, and 6) act as the home row:

Put your index finger on 4, your middle finger on 5 and your ring finger on 6.

With your index finger on 4, reach up to 1 or down to 7.  Likewise with your

middle finger on 5 it can reach up to 2, down to 8 and 0, and with your ring finger on 6 you can move it up to 3 and down to 9.


With practice, it won’t be long before you will be able to dial as fast as someone looking at the numbers.

(“Lefties” will have to reverse this process, just as with everything else in this right-                                   handed world.)
