    Really weird problem here.. About a week or so ago any unsaved number on phone began appearing with a +1 in front of it, I've compared it with a few other Iphone's that my buddies have and none of theirs do this? Ive tried to reset my phone but it doesn't seem to take away the +1 and i have no idea how it got there (international assist is not on either) anyone have any insight into why all of a sudden my Iphone is acting like this?

    Thx in advance!

    It's network dependant. O2 uk have always broadcast numbers +44 for the uk. But if you were to call me then it would show up +1 for example.

    +1 is the country Code for Canada everyone that I don't have as a contact shows up as +1(416 or 647)-XXX-XXXX

    Uk is +44 Norway +47 so yea don't worry it just means it's a friendly Canadian call :p

    The US is also +1. I don't know why both countries have the same code... they must be in cahoots :p
