    Try this:

    1) Go to Call Log
    2) Scroll up to the blank line
    3) Click the button to the left of the "pearl"
    4) Select Options
    5) Select Smart Dialing
    6) Make sure that Country Code says "+44" and National Number Length is set to 11

    Hope that helps

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    That Smart Dialing setting will also have an effect on phone numbers which appear as links, in messages (email) and the browser too. The end result is that when you click on a phone number link, the Phone app will dial it properly, stripping out punctuation and automatically adding the "+" and "country-code".

    Works great!

    Yeah.. however, if you have it saved in your phone book with +44 it wont recognize anyone calling with 07777..... any solutions for that? and if someone calls from another country it wont work? i dont understand how blackberry has problems with this. EVERY major phone companies phones can recognize the difference between the two? i think if there is no solution ill have to sell mine as its way to complicated when i travel. unless of course someone has an idea?
