Default Need to start adding 5 digit prefix to my long distance calls...

Please Login to Remove!

As a cost-saving measure, my company wants us all to start using a 5 digit long distance prefix in front of all our long distance calls we a make from our cell phones.

Any thoughts on how to do this without adding that code manually to all my long-distance numbers?

Call Log>Options>Smart Dialing doesn't give me an option to do this.

I've tried to dial in the prefix from the Call Log screen and then BB Key>Call From Contacts>(find the contact). It doesn't keep the prefix in "memory" and just dials it from the contact.

What about a third-party dialer application?

thanks (pg)

One way would be to edit your long distance contacts to have the prefix in their stored number. I'm checking now to see if I can find an alternative method.
