Wrong area code when calling

Hi again,


When I try to call a number, my bb automatically dials +5255 and then the number I have in my address book... Where could I change this setting so the telephone dials only the number that is saved in my address book ??? Without the codes...


Thank you !!!!!!!!!

Re: Wrong area code when calling

Hi and welcome to the forums!


Hit the green button menu key OPTIONS -SMART DIALING Check the country code I have mine set at unknown (I don't call overseas.) Yours is probably set for the +5255.

Let me know if you need any more help.

If this answers you question, please resolve the post, using the options to the right!

Re: Wrong area code when calling

Hi! Try this. Click on you call log icon and then click the berry key and click options. Then click on smart dialing. Is your area code entered correctly here? If yes what does it say for your country code and national number length? If your area code is incorrect type it in correctly and then push the back arrow and save. Then try a test call to see if that works. Please let us know how it goes. Good luck.
