11 digit local dialling
I just got a new Samsung Galaxy Note 8, I live in the Vancouver area, and have the 604 area code. I can phone out fine with 10 digits, but anyone trying to phone me has to put a 1-6o4 before my number. I asked Bell, they said it was a technical glitch, and would take up to 48 hours to fix. It still did not work, I phoned again, and was told it was because there are so many cell phones now that you have to dial the 1 first. Has anyone ever encountered this before, and I don`t want family friends, or work having to pay long distance to call my cell ?
