It’s actually very simple.

You can go to the phone function and begin dialing or you can actually just start hitting the numbers from your home screen and the phone application will open automatically.

Dial 1-8-0-0 or whatever the number prefix is. When you get to the letter, press the ALT key and hold and press the letters you need. The Blackberry will automatically figure out what numbers should be dialed. Press the click wheel and the call is imitated.
