Yesterday, we told you how to unlock your phone if you’re travelling overseas. Today we’re going to show you how to setup smart dialing and configure dialing for your appropriate area. The smart dialing feature on the handheld allows you to set a default Country Code and Area Code. To call a number with the default area code, you need to dial only seven digits, whether you are calling from within the area code or outside it. Smart dialing also allows you to store the number for a corporation. To reach an extension within that corporation, you need to dial only Alt + 8 (letter X) and the extension.
To configure smart dialing go to Phone –> Options –> Smart Dialing.
