Calculate & Call

A workaround if some number keys are nonfunctional

My friend's cell phone got wet and the "6" and "8" keys don't work, so now she can't call anyone with those digits in their number unless they happen to be in her saved contacts list.

But if her phone had Calculate & Call, she could create the number indirectly, using addition and subtraction on the cell phone's calculator, and when ready, dial the number now shown on the screen.

       What if the "?"* or the "=" button got wet? Or the internal antenna?
