Default Hmmm, fact or fiction?

So when I recieve a call from a non-programmed number on my 7100g and it shows a + sign in front of the number [+1xxx-xxx-xxxx], well that + sign appears to mean another cingular caller.....It has happened with a few numbers this week, and to my amazement, when I log into my account it shows those partucular numbers as M2M - meaning free minutes for that call.

Can anybody else verify this as fact???

On GSM phones, a plus sign indicates international dialing. +[country code][number]. I suspect that Cingular's switch is only setting this for calls that it routes within its system.

If you travel overseas, you'll want to have your address book set up with +1[ac][number] to dial back to the US.
