Makes it difficult to use my speed dials (which do not have it typed in as it wouldn't work at home). Seems to me there should be a setting telling the phone to use +1 for all numbers selected - whether in speed dial, in the rolodex or sent via email - until I deactivate or perhaps until I return to my home country.....
Speak of my experience with BB6710,
Just adding +1 When you are oversea. The only exception I have is Japan and Hong Kong, In Japan you have to use local cell phone (different setting frequency??). In Hong Kong , dial ALL numbers (011 1 (xxx) xxxx-xxxx),
I always use name1, nameF and use filter to set at differnt countries. It works. Hope this help.
Just a reminder, zoning cost will kill you , In my case, Cingular zoning is about $4.00 USD per minumte in Asia and about $2.00 USD per minute in Europe? a phone call can cost you $50.00 USD.
I will traveling to Germany and Asia countries next week with new 8700c, hoping it works better.
