    Just noticed this last weekend and again yesterday. Whenever I dial a long distance number it dials my voice mail (*86). If I use the number from contacts it works fine. It only seems to happen if I manually enter a number, ie if I dial 208-337-4119 it dials *86, if I call that same number but from the contact list it goes through...anyone ever witnessed this before?

    I actually did do a PRL update about 2-3 weeks ago, maybe I should try it again. Ok tried that...straight to voicemail! I just notice something that i'm sure is the problem or related to it. When I bring up the phone app I'm getting a different keypad than the Nexthemed one...when I receive a call the nextheme keypad is shown as is when calling from my contacts. How do I get rid of this "rogue" keypad?

    Just out of curiosity, have you tried using the hardware keyboard to dial? I wonder if you get the same results.

    Same thing...straight to voice mail. It's like another dialer app has been defaulted to.
