Default Automatically Add Dialing Prefix/Area Code ??

Please Login to Remove!

Smart dialing doesn't seem to be the answer for what I am looking for --

Is there any software/functionality that automatically adds the area code to new numbers, i.e., you enter 6624532 and dial, and the phone automatically adds a 646?

Furthermore, is there a way such that if you dialed the number 5346, it would automatically add both an area code prefix and three digit prefix, i.e., 646-662-5346 ??

This exists on the Palm Treo and I would love to have it on the blackberry. Please let me know if this functionality exists.

Thanks much.

Area code can be added, go to phone options, smart dialings and there is a setting for area code. For me if I just put in 9999999 it will fill in the area code I specify under this screen. It might be a carrier issue though. For phones that doesn't have this option they can just dial the seven digits and call right out, right?
