    Default Galaxy S4 incoming call issue + international error

    Hello,

    I hope you guys can help me with this. I have a Verizon galaxy s4 that I transferred to straight talk. Calls, texts, SMS, internet all work with no problem.

    The problem I am having is during incoming calls. The phone is showing a plus sign before the phone number that is calling me (Example: our area code is 607. so if 607-607-6076 calls me, the phone shows +60 7-607 6076) This doesn't seem like a big deal, but if I miss a call and try to just tap the number to return the call, I get an error message saying I cannot make international calls.. My phone settings are correct as far as I can tell. I have it set that I live in the U.S.

    This is a pretty annoying problem when you miss a call and can't easily dial back. You have to quickly memorize the number to go to a fresh screen and re-dial it manually.

    Anyone have this issue or a solution?

    The only thing I can think of is to check our APN settings and make sure they are correct for STRAIGHT TALK

    I've checked my APN settings and even tinkered with them to match what other people have posted. It is SO annoying

    Okay so let's go over some settings then. There has to be a solution for this.

    Tap your PHONE icon from your main screen. Once in there, tap your bottom left menu button. You should have a menu pop up with an option for CALL SETTINGS. Tap that option.
    Once in CALL SETTINGS, tap on ADDITIONAL SETTINGS.
    Okay now that you are in Additional Settings, There should be an option for AUTO AREA CODE. Tap that, and see if someone has put in the +1 in that box. I am guessing that's the issue. If there is a +1 or ANYTHING in the box for that matter, deleted it. And exit. And that's that. You are good to go, no more +1
    I really hope that was it otherwise I am stumped. let me know!

    Glad I'm not the only one. Was thinking it was something I did when configuring my APN settings. I also live in the 361 area on Cricket/ATT network with a Verizon Galaxy Note 4 running on 4G LTE. What I find odd is that even though we all have the same issue, the specifics are different. My incoming calls read +361 instead of 1361. I only have the issue with incoming calls but as Joleesays said... can't return a call without using the dialer to type it out, which is a pain. Already tried adjusting my APN settings and went through everything under call settings with no such luck. I have updated current country, tried adjusting the area code for all my contacts that sync to Google with the number fix app, checked my sim for errors n even tried restoring the firmware after wiping the cache. I think it most likely might have something to do with the assisted dialing settings. By default it is turned on but under area/city code it lists 136. I have tried deleting all spaces, turning the assistant dial off, adjusting the area code to the correct number n even adding a 1 to make it "1361" in which case my phone either wouldn't work after or the issue remained. I'm running out of ideas at this point n waisted enough time on it allready so anyone with any other ideas or info on the subject please please help out here. Btw, my Note 4 is NOT rooted and running Android 5.0.1

    Go on your dial pad and hit the menu button , then go to call settings, scroll down and you will see other call settings.. Then make sure that the U.S dialing is NOT checked...

    This worked for me because I checked the U.S dialing box.
