I have a Droid 2 Global that I recently transferred to from a global Blackberry. Since I periodically travel internationally, I always program my contacts with the country code prefix (ie +1 for all US numbers) in case I decide to purchase a local sim chip I can still call all my contacts without changing the dialing scheme. The problem I have noticed is I cannot send a text message to any contact as long as the +1 is before their area code. Picture messages go through fine with the +1 prefix, but text messages are affected. I can remove the +1 and everything works fine. I can also dial 001 and the area code for US numbers and the text messages work fine. I am wondering if others with the Droid 2 Global are having this same issue? If some people have the time, I would appreciate it if you would try to manually enter a person's number whom you text often but add the +1 before the area code and see if you can still send the message or if it fails. None of my Blackberry phones never had any issues with the +1, and even my old Razr handled +1 text messages without issues. I have brought this issue up directly with Verizon Global Support, but I am hoping that if this is not an isolated issue, to get the attention of Google so they can fix their coding mistake. Thanks in advance!
