    This is unbelievably frustrating. First off this is my THIRD fascinate, and yet another issue. Some of my contacts are formated like this +1-724-555-1212, which will not allow me to text that contact.

    1. Why is this happening
    2. How can I fix this? This was not an issue in the past.

    Does it make the number not dial?

    No the numbers dial fine, but when I go to text the person it does not work. I don't get an error message, and it shows as sent, but the person never gets the text (tested this out on three different contacts, and is only happening when the + sign is there).

    Two things...you can just edit the contacts phone number and take out the +1. Or my solution... I got google voice, which doesn't care about the +1, and I was able to cancel my texting plan because I don't get charges for texts with it.

    Then hit the plus sign to add another phone number and enter the same number without the +1, our create a new contact and link them together. This will be your only option as the contact is currently pulling from another site you have set you're phone up to pull contacts from (aka Facebook)

    ugh what a pain... That is going to take forever as this happened with about half of my contacts.. then once it syncs up with facebook after that it will just happen all over again?

    No idea where its even getting the +1 from as its not that way on facebook.

    Regardless, thanks for your help.

    Go on to google sign in and then edit your contacts that way.

    Would you mind giving me some details on how to do this? I've never tried to edit contacts through google.


    Thanks!

    i have this problem. its a real pain. numbers that had been uploaded from facebook all got the +1 tagged onto them. so ive gone through my contacts and deleted these and replaced them with new contacts i did by hand. yet the phone still places the +1 on the persons name when i go to text or call them. no matter if i delete their name, enter the number in by hand, delete the text thread i have; it still comes back after the first text.

    I am having the same problems too! It is ridiculous. I can't text almost half of my contacts. Does anyone know if they are going to fix this?

    Thank you!

    i think i found a fix for this. i downloaded and installed Handcent SMS.
    seems to choose the numbers without the +1. the numbers i was having a hard time with seem to work now.

    plus, there is a lot more customization that you can do with Handcent.

    My brother had this problem. He backed up his contact using Backup Assistant. Then did a factory data reset. The problem is from your Google contact sync. After reset make sure to disable Google contact sync.

    Are these contacts from Facebook, or other social sites where you synced photos and got more numbers?

    If so, create new contact, put number without +1 and then merge contacts.

    these are contacts merged from facebook. and i did create a new contact and linked them together, even selected the number without the +1 to be 'default' and it still picked up the +1.

    Press and hold the number you created and it will make it default.
