    hi

    i am a newbie, and just got my brand new htc desire hd phone...

    one of things i couldn't figure out was how to automatically prefix an international dialling access code...

    essentially, to make cheap international calls, i want to prefix the phone number with a code (e.g. 018, or 008 or something like that) - this prefix works only for calls, not for SMS, so for international SMS I have to use "+"

    what i want to do is to automatically replace the + with a prefix code like 018 when making a call...

    is this possible?

    Hmm i don't really know if there is a solution for this...
    But why don't you just change all the numbers to numbers with + prefixes?? The + prefix works both for calls and SMS messages (national and international)!

    Cheers

    all my contacts are prefixed with + already

    what i want to do is:
    for calls - prefix with 018
    for sms - prefix with +

    is there a way to do this automatically without having to edit the number each time, because that is very tedious...
