    Default UK Blackberry in the USA? (saving contacts problem)

    I bought my blackberry in the UK but I'm now studying in the states. My phone is unlocked and I have an AT&T simcard. However, when I save numbers (US phone numbers) in my contacts to call or text, it automatically adds a '+44' which makes the call not go through. I found a way around it by just manually entering the numbers and saving them in my memopad to copy and paste but this is very inconvenient.

    Is there a way I can configure my blackberry so that I can just call/text from contacts?

    I can't remember for sure where the setting for this lives, but it is linked to one of the "regional" settings like time zone, language, keyboard.

    I think ... try Phone options / Smart Dialling, Country Code.

    Numbers saved with the correct +n international prefix will work perfectly anywhere you travel, so get into the habit of saving US numbers in +1 style. The phone networks identify their own international code in the dialled number and ignore for national calls. I have the reverse problem with this, even with the correct setup sometimes my contacts get saved in national format instead of international (+nn ....) which is a nuisance because I travel a lot.
