    So I have an unlocked Cingular GSM Treo 650 and I am putting in my contacts so that I can dial them and am not sure what the best way to put in UK numbers are. (I think I might have answered my own question)

    In the UK, you dial the 0 before the area code , but when you are dialing from abroad you do not dial the zero.

    I.e.
    Within UK - Dial 0845 600 789
    Outside UK - Dial +44 845 600 789

    If I input it as +44 845 600 789, then I guess it will always work. It's just that the phone numbers here are usually written as +44 (0) 845 600 789, so I guess I input them with the country code and without the 0.

    Yup.. basically drop the 0 and add +44 for the UK. You can use this format for dialling within the UK too.

    I store all contacts like that (+4X and without the first 0). This way i can always dial directly, regardless of where i currently am.

    I agree, it is the better practice..
    Most of my contacts are entered without the international access code and it is a pain when I'm overseas..

    In my case, it wouldn't work all the time. When I am in the office and want to use the landline to call up a contact from outlook (my treo synchs with my outlook), the TAPI driver that I have does not recognize the plus sign. A bit irritating.
