Hello, this is my first post, so I hope I'm thorough and able to provide enough information for assistance. Two days ago I received an Ally LG with Android 2.2.2 on Verizon. By default, there is a google widget bar with a microphone button on the end that allows you to operate full text messages, call businesses and your contacts by speaking. It works great for speaking complete text messages and calling my contacts, but when I try to call say McDonalds on Main Street, it adds a country code of 011 before the number, no matter what business I call. I've been on the line with support for over an hour trying different settings, finally she told me to contact Google, it's on their end.
I've seen some similar issues on some of the other threads but no real fixes for an Ally LG and the google search settings are set to use my current location and maps shows my address, so I'm out of ideas and I'm looking for help.
If anyone can assist with disabling this country code bug on the google search voice widget I'd be very thankful, as I do like the idea of the feature, but not in it's current non functioning state. But like I said, it sends complete text messages by voice, calls my contacts ok, I just can't call any local businesses or establishments without the country code 011 being inserted.
Thanks again, and have a great day!
