Eh? i think it means that the number has been in your phone before?
Steve did say it would be an A+ update after all lol
The "+" is Cellphone short code for International Access. If you are in the US, it just means that you received the number, and didn't enter it yourself (at least that is what I can tell).
International calling code.
So to call international from anywhere I just need + at the start of the number before the country code and I don't need to remember the local int. dialling number.
+ is for International codes... example:
if you dial to the US you must dial +1 before the area code...
if you are calling to a foreign country (say Honduras) from inside the US. you say
+1 (504)-area code-number
Ok, lets say you call a number in the UK, int. code is 0044, you can use +44, so it can be used instead of the zero.
Skype and Cellphones uses the +(country code)(area code)(number) format. If you save all your numbers that way, you don't have to do anything different whether you are calling local or long distant.
