    Forced to use AREA CODE to dial out?

    every customer i did a New Cricket GSM activation for using BYOP..... ( don't know about cricket branded gsm phones yet? ... since my master agent not send me any new ckt gsm phones yet )

    but here is the issue:
    after i test call the phone it does not work with just XXX-XXXX i have to do (XXX) XXX-XXXX then the call gets places, i called cricket they has no clue, i called my master agent... still no clue so i tell all customers MAKE SURE YOU UPDATE CONTACTS LIST AND ADD AREA CODE + when dialing out with out using contacts!

    Every GSM device I have ever used has been like this. This has been the norm for most large metropolitan areas where multiple area codes overlap as local numbers. It was instituted some 14 or so years and will continue to be necessary as the amount of telephone numbers grows and expands. You should start educating your customers to include the area code with all numbers as this is more and more important. I found this to be a requirement for text messaging already, so you shouldn't run into this too often.

    this makes since.... we do have over lapping numbrs..... so bad that we went from area code 209 back in 1998 to area code 559 to make more phone numbers so sad.... that we all had to change phone numbers o area codes on business cards banners back in 1999 lol
