Default Can't get AT&T phone to stop forcing area code

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

Anyone who could help - this would be much much much appreciated!

I purchased the Blackberry 8300 in the US, unlocked, and it came pre-installed with the AT&T operating system. I installed the default language of English and the phone deleted the others.

Then when I went to dial the entries in the address book, it prompted to force a default area code. I used 1. BUT, now every number I dial has a one in front of it. Since I am using the phone internationally, it is making it impossible to dial any entries in my address book.

I looked in the Options area, advanced options, etc., and there is no mention of anything like smart dialing or where to set country code to nothing.

Anyone can help?
