    General phone calling question.

    When you make a call, the screen shows the number with a + in front of it, what does that mean?

    Also, when you make a call here (and...elsewhere?), there has to be a 1 in front of the number. Do you have to put a 1 in when you enter a number into the address book?

    No, you don't have to enter 1, just the area code. Your Blackberry will automatically place a 1 whenever you call that number.

    Normally, a + is shorthand for the international dialing code, 011 or whatever.

    Yeah the + has been added to all dailing from Mobile by t-mobile. we get people asking al the time if they are being chagred roaming or something. the switch knows what to do with it, and unless its an overseas call or you are on an old Local area plan, it is all OK
