Does anyone know how to disable this, I can't find it anwhere?
I'm bumping because nobody seems to know the answer, 4 VZW tech help folks didn't either. When dialing, using Voice Search, which I do a lot when driving, it always ads the +1 in front of the number, and I get the message, "Verizon wireless, we're sorry your call cannot be completed, please check the number etc etc" So I have to manually edit the # to take out the +1. However, VLingo doesn't ad the +1, but it also doesn't have the best results when saying what your calling. When I was testing it, I said call McDonalds, Ambler, Pa.. it gave me McDonalds all over the state...
Edit: Alot of the contacts I have are from facebook. I don't know how it synched it, I never even signed into FB from this phone till you responded. I'm trying to find a way to un-synch facebook atm ... not having any luck.
Edit 2: Well it let me uninstall facebook, re-synched, still getting the +1

My wife and I are also both having this same exact issue. Her phone is a Droid 2 (R2D2 edition) and mine is a Droid Bionic. Indeed it was also happening on my original Droid before I upgraded to the Bionic. All three phones are on the Verizon network. All three phones are running on Stock operating systems (no root). But here's the part I find VERY interesting.... we live in Lansdale, Pennsylvania. One of the previous posters (Shadez) mentioned something about him living in Ambler, PA. That's just down the road. So the issue is occuring on at least three different models of phones and multiple versions of the Android operating system. BUT could it be that all with this problem live in the same geographic area of South Eastern PA? Indeed the voice search "call McDonalds" or "Call Walmart" feature DOES interact somehow with google maps to figure out which McD's or Walmart is close to our current location. So could the problem be LOCATION based?
Please help with this, VZW tech folks. It is really annoying.
I'm replying to my own post because I have further information. I did a google search and found another person with this same "+1 added to voice search" problem. He lives in Pennsburg, PA. That is about 10 or 15 miles from the towns of both Ambler and Lansdale. All evidence points me to believe this is a regional issue.
So there you go, VZW Support. I really think I've tracked the issue down for you... now please solve the problem.
