I use Outlook 2003 with my BlackBerry and BIS.
Here is how I'm setup, you need to set yours up the same way, otherwise if you are traveling out of your area code (or roaming) the call will not go through.
In Outlook, click on contacts, new contact,
Below the Name fields, there are the fields for Phone numbers.
Each has a button, like business, home, business fax, mobile etc.
Do NOT use the blank field to enter the number, instead let's say your entering a Business number.
Click on the Business Button to the left of the blank field.
A box will come up named "Check Phone Number" use this box to enter the area code and local number only, then click OK. It will automatically format it with the proper spacing, and a number 1 in front. You do not get this same result by typing in the field directly.
Now your number will appear in the field in this format
+1 (548) 506-8544
That is the perfect setup, now it will dial and connect the call no matter where you are, especially if roaming out of your area.
