However, every number, even local numbers, have the '1' in front of it. Is there any way to get rid of that?
That is something the BB does automatically, and I consider that to be a great feature of the BB.
Having the "1" in front of a 10 digit number does not necessarily mean that a local call will be billed to you as LD. The nice thing about this feature is that you can call anyone up in your Contact list regardless of where you are, and the call will go through without the computer voice coming on, saying "All long distance calls need......".
