Blackberry curve (8300) is adding a 1 to phone number in SMS?? will not send message?

I get an error message saying that I need to resend the message w/ a proper 10 digit number... Which I have in my address book, but then the phone will add an extra 1 to the #, making it 11 characters, and thus not sending messages.... I have looked through both phone and SMS options and have found nothing that helps.. I have turned off the country code in phone options, resent the SMS, and still had the same problem.  then I took the area code off and the same thing still happened. Please help b/c I cannot text my gf at the moment????!!!


also, it adds a 1 to only certain phone numbers.  i can text almost everybody else just fine, apart from like 3-4 people.


thanks in advance,
