Exclamation change incoming calls to 10 digit number without 1 in front

Please Login to Remove!

hi
i recently got my 8100 and its great
my address book lists phone numbers as 10 digit numbers (area code plus the number)
however my incoming calls show 11 digit number (1 plus area code plus number) and therefore are not recognized by the phone numbers already stored in my address book by name
how do i get rid off this 1 prefix?
any suggestions would be appreciated
Bo

Go to the phone app (start dialing, hit the send button from the home screen, whatever), and then go to Options > Smart Dialing and change the entry for the country code from +1 to unknown. Problem solved.
