Phone Names

An interesting point was brought up on this weeks GoingPro podcast regarding names in phone numbers.  The example used was 1-800-gofedex.  The point?  How do you dial that on a smart phone? Since I am a late adopter to the smart phone world I have never encountered this issue, but I see the problem.

Companies used to be pretty clever to obtain a phone number that spelled out a memorable phrase to help customers remember.  Now many will be forced to put that smart phone to use on the web in order to locate the numeric equivalent.  I wonder if there is an app for that?
