Default Problem With Making Calls

Please Login to Remove!

I live in Israel and here all cell phone numbers start with the same two digits. Somehow, my Blackberry Bold recognizes this and for whatever reason throws a "+1" in front of the number for whatever reason and I can't figure out how to deactivate it. When it does this I get an operator saying the call can't be completed. This only happens when I dial from my phone book, and only if I'm calling to a cell phone, and also if I type the number manually it doesn't happen and the call goes through without a hitch.
How do I get this +1 to stop being automatically dialed for me? I originally bought my phone in the US through an AT&T store, if it matters.
