    I have all of my contacts stored as (xxx) xxx-xxxx. When I am within my own area code, I have always only dialed the last seven digits (no area code). When I do this, my Incredible doesn't recognize it as a stored contact.

    I've tried storing it in different ways, xxx-xxx-xxxx, xxxxxxxxx, etc, but I do not seem to be able to make it hapen.

    From what I've read, one solution is to dial the area code everytime, but who wants to do that in a local setting? Very annoying every smartphone I've ever had prior to this was able to interpret the last seven as the contact when the phone is in the default area code (and yes, mine is set to my area code).

    Any solutions out there?

    I always dial by name instead of the number. For example Jerry is 53779.

    I, too, find this absolutely amazing that 2.2 isn't smart enough to look at the digits past the area code when a number that is only 7 digits long to identify the contact. This is very annoying.
