Go to your Phone Options and look at the Smart Dialing settings and be sure that they are set correctly. Set the setting to dial a "1" for National Dialing.

Eight months is a long time to suffer with something.

Cool

Even if you can dial toll free phone numbers you will get charge for the minute using your mobile unless you have an application like Skype which can be used for calling them for FREE.

Excellent idea. Do you have a working, free version of Skype for your BlackBerry to share?
