    Hi cafe, welcome to pinstack. This happened to me as well, and I went into each contact and corrected them.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Outlook sucks because you cannot define a template for phone numbers.

    You can edit the () out of the numbers, one at a time, on your BB, then never enter a phone number again using Outlook.

    However, BlackBerry phone app and address book app are smart enough to know to ignore the () when dialing. However....I'm not so sure about SMS....

    If you're not concerned with long distance charges, you should format all numbers, especially on a GSM device, as +1xxxxxxxxxx. That way you will never be bothered with "your call cannot be completed as dialed", or SMS messages which do not go through.
