My Device: blackberry curve 8900
My Carrier: optus

cant use the phone to make calls

Hi,i bought a blackberry curve from overseas,i was assured most blackberrys are sold unlocked and i moved to australia.

here i cant use the phone to make calls from contacts as it puts the overseas country code infront of the aussie mobile number AUTOMATICALLY when dialling  contacts.it was a brand new handset,never been used before,all my contacts have been imported from my optus sim card into the new blackberry optus sim card.i have updated the IMIE  number in AUS but still cant figure out why is the phone adding an overseas code in front of the number.if i dont use the contacts to make a call and dial straght from the hanset,it works...please help!!
