Default Calls from phonebook include +1 ?

Please Login to Remove!

I just got my Curve on AT&T.

When I dial from my address book, it adds a +1 (country code) to my calls.

I clicked in options/smart dialing under the phone app, and it says country code +1, area code is 770, and the national number length is 10.

I thought it only applied the +1 when you were out of the country. And national number length = 10 seems appropriate, since we dial area codes on all long distance and local calls in the Atlanta area.

So what do I need to change to get rid of the +1?

There is no need to get rid of it. Doesn't hurt anything. Same concept as dialing own your area code when calling your neighbor down the street -- you don't have to do it but it doesn't hurt anything.

It also is a benefit to keeping the coding because if you travel overseas, your calls to numbers in your phone book will go through.
