Phones from as early as the 1930s do have all of the letters: Q was on the 7 with PRS and Z was on the 9 with WXY. These letters were used in some of the trunk prefixes in the US that were abbreviated as two letters in front of the line number (e.g. Quincy: QU-3456, Beachwood4: BE4-5789). On some, there was no room for them on the dial pad and they are the two least used letters of the alphabet. And there was no texting with old phones.
