Ra'anana has become the first Israeli city to adopt the foreign idea of using letters instead of digits as telephone numbers, reports www.local.co.il. Residents in the pioneering city will now be able to call the central moked service by pressing vbbgr "Ra'anana" in Hebrew on their mobile telephones. The report pointed out that callers do not actually need to spell out the city's name on their telephone screens; it will be enough simply to press the buttons on which the letters are located. For those who still cannot understand how this works, the number is *79442.
