8100 Pearl will not dial area code

In my address book I have Italian phone numbers: country code 39, area code 0421 Venice and the the phone number.

In my address book the numbers are correct but my phone will not dial the zero in the area code.

I have been to the phone menu, Options, Smart Dialing and have made the appropriate changes but nothing seems to work.


I thank you for your time.

Re: 8100 Pearl will not dial area code

I've never tried it internationally, but instead of starting with a 0 in the address book can you just start with the '+' then the country code, then the rest of the number?
