Default +1?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey

Ive got a BB 7290...

Everytime I click on a persons name from the address book, it adds a +1 (im in Canada) and dials! The problem is I don't want that to happen because then it makes long distance calls without me knowing

I am in a funny situation because I live in two towns and have a number for inbetween so i get coverage...so sometimes its difficult to predict whether my call is long distance or not....

Nontheless, is there a way to get the BB to not add that +1 everytime I click from the address book and instead just dial the raw number ive inputted into the address book?

Thanks!

From the home screen click on the phone icon- click on the scroll wheel- go to options- scroll down to smart dialing- look for country code- change it to unknown.. that should do it.

Hm...I am surprise it would make a difference on whether it is a long distance call or not because +1 is really the country code. I actually prefer all my numbers to begin with +1 as long as the number is in Canada or USA because no matter where I am (internationally mostly), it knows I am dailing a Canada/US number.

Hey unfortunately I don't have 'smart dialing' in options...Is there something I am doing wrong?

Is there another way or perhaps something I should install to change this option?

Thanks!

Actually, TMobile (finally) posted the update to firmware version 4.1 last Friday (5/19/06).

Check with your provider, most providers should have version 4.1 for 7290's posted by now. If they don't, call them and make like a squeaky wheel!
