I'm having precisely the same problem as the original poster -- trying to call Italy from a T-MO Curve in the US -- and I don't think this fixes it. All this does is tell it how to dial US #s. There is workaround -- I go into my contact book and copy the entire #, including the 0, and then paste it into the dial screen -- but it would be great if there were a better fix. (I presume this problem arises because if one is *in* Italy, one doesn't dial the 0, but one must from abroad. But that doesn't explain how to solve the issue...)
Any further advice appreciated!
