Auto Append +1 for samsung omnia RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently switched from a htc touch to the samsung omnia with bell in Canada. My htc touch had the option to add the 1 in front of every call so I didn't have to listen to "This is a long distance call..." recording is there an app or a way I can have the same setting?  When people call my phone the number that is stored in my call log doesn't have the 1 in front of the number so if I highlight the contact and press dial I get the this is a long disyance recording.. very annoying.. so if like the htc touch there was a auto append the number 1 setting it would be nice.

  • I hadn't noticed this problem on any of my phones but maybe it depends where you are calling from?
    Have you asked Bell about this - and if they know if there is an option?

  • Hi,

    Was this feature on the HTC Touch found in Start > Settings > Phone > Services? Do you know if this setting is available on other HTC devices  offered by Bell?

  • I'm just guessing that it is a service that is provided by the cell provider.  I do not have it on my HTC Touch Pro or on a Touch Pro2 (as far as I can see).

  • I have asked bell about it but they don't know anything about the phone...  I looked in every setting on the phone and it is not an option, I was just hoping maybe there was an app or something like that. After searching everywhere I decided that it was just easier to go to a phone that has this option so iphone to the rescue. Thank you for your time.

  • This feature was under the servies tab yes. The samsung Omnia does not have that option.. I don't know anything about other phones wether thaty have that option or not.. except the iPhone it comes default.

  • I asked several of the moderators about your issue.  Chris DeHerrera just sent a note indicating the following:

    Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro still supports the ability to change the dialing pattens
    This option is under Start - Settings - Connections - Connections - Advanced - Dialing Rules
    You can add a 1 to all numbes there.
