Default japan - pre-fix numbers required

Please Login to Remove!

hello everybody in this forum.
i hope someone can help me here with my problem on the 8700 BB.
Iam using now the BB provided by NTT Docomo in Japan but this requires
a 9 digit pre-fix number to call overseas.
my question - is there a way to set this as a pre-fix number in the BB same as done for other japanese phones usually?
i called the local BB service line but said its not possible - i can't believe, i mean this would require just a simple s/w update and then its done.

i would appreciate any feedback from you guys out there.

thx!

My suggestion would be to use for phonebook to save the NTT prefix on int'l numbers.

hi,

I had this out with NTT recently. They admit that they currently do not recognise the "+" as an international prefix in address books.
They admit that have no utility built into the phone to manage prefixes.

That confess that due to the large amount of complaints on this issue they are quickly working on a fix.

My suggestion would be to create Slightly different address to store the full dial details addresses rather than screw with existing addresses.
