So im a boost customer and decided i wanted a Black Berry but didnt wanna pay Nextels ridiculous $100 a month for what im currentley paying $50 a month for. Phone works great everything is working thanks to theese forums and i only have one problem. When i call a number out of my phone book it add a 1 infront of the number and gives me a message that says "The number or code you have dialed in incorrect". If i dial the same number without the 1 it goes through, anytime i want to make a call i have to dial the number even if the number is in my phone book. If someone calls me from a number in my phone and i try calling back it doesnt work gives me the same error message. So im guessing the problem is that the number 1 is infront of the number. Anyone know how to fix it? And i keep hearing that the boost chip can fry the Black Berry, any truth to this?
The reason for the option is that if you have it added to all your phone numbers in your address book and are on a network that is more updated than what Boost seems to be it will allow all calls to go through and if it needs to be long distance then it uses the country code if local it does not. At least that is the way the Telus system works here in Canada and it works great and I never have to worry about it.
All the contacts I have in my address book all have the numbers stored with a 1 in front of them and I have never had an issue even for all local calls. ;-)
