    I'm new to blackberry so forgive me if this is an easy fix. I have all my contacts stored as (###) ###-#### but when I get a text from someone it just shows the number but with +1 first. I'm assuming there is a setting somewhere but it seems dumb to not just have it automatically figure stuff like that out. I don't think I've ever had a phone that didn't do that.

    I always had an issue with the +1 showing up on my non-BB (the contact name/pic still shows), so I just added it to the contact info. However, if all you can see is the phone number incl +1 then I have no idea.

    A really good question...hope someone answers this as I'm curious.

    I've seen in other threads that the solution is to save the phone numbers as #########

    Well my point was they are stored without the leading 1. Plus they are stored in exchange so I don't think I can do that. I'm just trying to avoid adding a 1 to all the numbers in my contacts.

    Apparently it is a device specific issue with the 9700 for those that are interested.
