I don't know about the other keys on that particular phone model but the 
character input is the same for all phones. You enter characters by hitting 
the correct number of short presses on the appropriate key. So, 1 tap on 2 
gives you a, two taps gives you b, and 3 taps gives you c, and 4 taps gives 
you 2. The arrangement is: 2 a b c 2, 3 d e f 3, 4 g h i 4, 5 j k l 5, 6 m n 
o 6, 7 p q r s 7, 8 t u v 8, 9 w x y z 9. 1 gives you various punctuation 
characters and 0 is used for space. The * key gives you a menu of various 
punctuation characters and # is used to switch between various modes. You 
could probably just open up the notepad application and try playing with 
this to get an idea of how it works.
Hopefully this helps and has made some kind of sence.
