Default How do i get rid of # 1 when placing a call using phonebook ?

Please Login to Remove!

I Live in Mexico.

I had a 7100, and someone gave me a 8700c from Cingular. I unblocked the 8700 and installed the mexican chip, everything worked perfect without problems, UNTIL I upgraded to the latest release.

Everything works but I am having one problem that I can not solve. I spent 4 days trying to fix it, I think its time to post my problem in this forum.

Everytime i want to make a phone call, using the phone book, the 8700 automatically places a number 1 before the number i want to dial.

I can not use the stored numbers on the phonebook, I have to push each number to be able to place a call to avoid the number 1.

Is there a way to get rid of the number 1 ? when using the phonebook

The number 1 does not appear on the list of stored phone numbers on the phonebook, it just appears on trying to dial using the phonebook.

I hope someone can help me, I am going crazy over this.

Thank you

go to Phone Dialer screen > options > Smart Dialing, and remove the +1 from the Country code, Set your OWN country code there with a + in front of it.

It may be a setting under your Smart Dialing. Click on the phone icon and then go into Options -> Smart Dialing and see if it is adding the +1 there.
