   I am afraid you are wrong .... yes, the dial will 'spin' through   
the alphabet like a Dymo tool, BUT the keypad on the face of  the D7  
and on the back of the mike of the D700/D710 operates like a  
cellphone, with multiple presses cycling through the number plus 3  
letters and cases assigned to that key.
