I am assuming that you get free calls to the numbers o1,o2 etc.
I do not think that there is a way round this, it is a set up that is unique to BlackBerry that the name of the person who texts doesn't show up unless the country code is set in smart dialing.
That said although the +44 code is entered automatically when dialing I believe that it is not actually used unless you are calling from abroad. On my itemised bill my numbers called are listed without the +44 and the call log doesn't show the +44 prefix either. Therefore the billing department of your network shouldn't see the +44 prefix and thus the call should be recognised as begining with .01, o2 etc and the free tariff applied.
Check with your carrier and have a look at your most recent itemised bill (or check online) for the way the numbers are recorded.
This is my understanding of how it works but I could be wrong! Maybe someone else can confirm/correct this.
