Solution:
YOU HAVE REACHED ANDREWS PHONE PLEASE LEAVE A MESSAGE

You could have solved this by figuring out each letter using the ones given in the hint or you could have noticed that the letters on a touch-tone phone correspond to the numbers above. For example "2" = "A" = the first letter on the 2-button. "7777" = "S" = the forth number on the 7-button. If you use a number-pad to send text-messages with your phone you will understand this procedure.
