    Hi,

    Got my new phone. I just want to know if with the iPhone it's possible to automatically add the prefix number before a phone number?

    For example, in my contact I have the number without the prefix because it's "local", but if I travel to X city and want to call a person, how to add +1 automatically? Can I press +1 and choose from contact? How does it work?

    Thank you

    If you go into your phone settings and enable "Dial Assist," it will provide the necessary local or international prefix automatically.

    ok thx.

    Another question about phone call. With my plan, I can't see Caller ID, so calls from my contact are shown as "Unknown caller". Do you know a workaround to show Caller ID from contact?

    Thank you

    Hmmm that’s odd. If you do have those contacts contained within your Phone app, they should show up regardless of your plan (since it draws from the OS). At the very least, I’d think you would see a number.
