Anyone can explain to me why the hell in iPhone phone app I need letters under numbers would be really appreciated.    Unlikely apple puts this kind of redundant feature on its devices.  In practice I only can dial  numbers but not letters ,why Apple put the letters Under numbers ,it's kind of ridiculous move.

It is so when you are watching a show on TV and a commercial comes on as says to call `1-(800)-Call-Now` you know where to find the numbers that match the letters.

That number would really be `1-(800)-225-5669`

Every phone has had that before, I don't know why you're noticing that now, lol. What @TheTechDude said is right, they do have that for convienence if a vanity phone number comes up, you can type it in.
