    When I synced my phone's contacts with my facebook contacts, I saw that some of the numbers had the +44 prefix. This didn't seem like a problem until I tried to dial a contact's number that was taken from Facebook.

    When it dials it just plays a long beeping tone and won't connect to the contact. I can text the contact fine but not ring.

    Also, I can not change the number in my phone as it is from Facebook.

    Does anyone have a way to solve this issue?

    Facebook has them as 447 rather than +447 which is your problem ;)

    add their number (either as 0 or +44) to your phonebook as another mobile, then make it the primary number

    Only other way is to get your facebook friends to enter the number correctly, it does work as I had same problems
