    I have the Optimus M, same phone but for MetroPCS. Anyway, I have confirmed that the phone will not correctly parse numbers in my contact book (or numbers I dial) that start with +1. All my google contacts have +country code since I sync with multiple devices (some which I take overseas) and on blackberries and every other phone I've ever used, the dialer is smart enough to know that +1 is not needed if I'm making a call from within the US.

    On the Optimus, the + is converted to 011 even though I'm in the US and the call fails. I'm wondering if the same behavior happens on Optimus S phones.

    I called LG and they told me the phone is working as designed.... so I returend it. I'm not going to edit all my numbers because of lazy programming.

    Could someone do a quick test and call a US number with +1 in front and see if it goes through (e.g. +1-617-936-1234)
