Blackberry 9500 storm

Hi all, i have recently purchased a 9500 used touchscreen handset and had it unlocked for my father, i have noticed when i added dads contact list to the phone and tried to ring out an American prefix code comes up, i can only presume the phone is American. The phone accepts calls etc, is there any way i can put the phone to uk settings ???? as you will probably have noticed i have not a clue, my dad loves the phone and he can navigate round it, he is away for 4 days and i said i would have it sorted, i have the handset and booklet and usb lead, box etc (help please)

Thanks in advance to anyone whom can help

 

Regards twalftwalf

Re: Blackberry 9500 storm

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".

Re: Blackberry 9500 storm

Hey. You're welcome. I do hope he's become "unchuffed" by now! Good luck.
