    I have a problem with one of my contacts. When I go into the dialer, and start writing the letters to this contact, the only choice I have is the contact and the number with my country code in front of his number.

    Only the country code, no "+" or "00", so when I try to call it can't recognise the number.

    When I start to enter the first digits of his number the right number shows to the contact, and I can press and call that.

    I tried to de-link the contact from Facebook, and that worked. But on Facebook he has just entered his number without any country code.

    I have all my contacts linked to Facebook, and this number is the only one I have this problem with.

    I also checked the number in my contact-list, and it shows as that wrong number, with countrycode in front, and when I try to edit it, it only shows me the actual phone number.

    Facebook is the issue, it doesn't store the +

    It's been mentioned a million times on here and other forums

    Ok I see, is there a way to correct this?

    Nope, have to wait for Facebook to change their system

    I found a handy fix for this, with this app:

    Prefixer: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.tftbelow.prefixer

    You can setup rules for incoming and outgoing calls.

    For example, I'm from Denmark where there are 8 digits in a number.

    I then make a rule that says, when I'm calling a number of exactly 10 digits the prefix "+" will automatically be added to that number.

    I get this too with my flatmate. I find that if i call her from a text message it connects fine, even though the number looks the same.
