I bought my BB in the UAE. At the time I was told it was open and could be used anywhere. I came home and go a Bell account. However, whenever I try to make a local call from my contacts list the BB tells me that I m making an overseas call. This happens with contact numbers I put in here. Is there a fix so I can use my phone?

1. Make sure you set your own country code at Phone dialer Screen > Options > Smart dialing.
Set your Country Code in this format: "+xx" where xx = your country code. Some countries have two or three digit Country Codes. Do not place the '+' in your contact's entry.
* In the US, set this Country Code as "+1", and place your local area code in the proper box (this normally the default setting in a new BB).
2. At the same location, change the National Number Length to the number of digits for your country (since some countries will have less than 10 as set as the default in the BB). Find out the total digits, minus the country code. Do not place the '+' in your contact's entry.
* For example, some countries have a total number to 8 (plus 3 for country code). You would enter "8".
