Hi, this is my first MetroPCS and first Android phone so I'm hoping that someone can shed some light on this problem. All my numbers are formatted in my phone book as +Country code. So all US numbers are +1, Italy is +39, UK +44, etc. This has worked fine for me on other carriers and other phones, but on this phone, even though I'm already in the US, it tacks on the 011 to whatever (US) number I select from the phonebook. What I'm not sure is if this is a quirk in the dialer or something that metropcs's network doesn't know what to do with. Could someone verify that they get the same result on their phone if they dial a US number with +1-area code-number? It's basically a "call cannot be completed as dialed" message. I'm not about to go through all my contacts and modify them so this would really suck for me. UPDATE: I called LG and they told me the phone is working as designed. I went to the MetroPCS store and after explaining myself 3 or 4 times, to 3 or 4 different people, they couldn't help me either. I did, however confirm that on all their other phones (or at least on blackberry and samsung phones) dialing with +1 in front doesn't cause issues and the phone number (e.g. +1-617-555-1212) will connect without problems. This means the problem is definitely with the LG dialer. It's lazy programming, actually. Just to put this in perspective; imagine that your google account syncs with two android phones. One phone is for the US and one is for Overseas. If you do not have the +1 in front of your number, it won't dial properly from overseas if and if you do then your US phon won't dial properly here. Anyway, I had to return the phone. I guess I'll wait to see what happens.
