I bought a new phone a couple of months ago and am unable to call any long distance numbers. Local calls are fine, toll-free calls are fine, but when I try to call long distance I get an error message telling me call somewhere.
I called the number it's the GE place, but there is no real help there. It's all automated crap and there aren't any real people. HELP!

talk with your service provider
if the number 1 is placed before a local number then logically when calling that number, the number would be recognized as a local number and be charged as such
Form what you say , if the number was from a caller in a different state and the number was prefixed by say 6 then the system would recognize that as a long distance call
again talk with your service provider and if accurate contact your state governor or senator and make an issue of the law requiring the prefix number on caller id
Sometimes there is a setting in the phone to allow only local calls, but if that is not the case, it may be, like a couple of times happened to me, that you have gotten "slammed". Carefully check your phone bill or call them to see if your services have been changed. This was a big problem for me a couple of years ago. Good Luck!
I bought my HTC Desire from Three Network about half a year ago. Just a couple of days ago, I called Three at 333 to get my unlock code. It took about half an hour to verify me and my credit card details. I suppose you could call their international number at 00447782333333. It costs me 15.32 pounds to unlock.
Yes you can have your phone set to local calls only.
You have to speak with your service provider and tell them you no longer wish to be able to call long distance from your house phone. but still want local calls only.
So the number issue, the area code here on appleton Wisconsin is 920 but there are some cities that are still long distance in the 920 area code like Green Bay which is only 20 miles from here (GO PACKERS)
you probably got a number for a different city in the same area code, maybe they didnt have numbers for your city?
As for incoming calls, did you try resetting the phone? if so, call helio and tell them you want to reprogram the phone, they will send a programming code to the phone. Mine did this for 2 days when it was new, i called and they got it straight for me, if you still have the box, call the activations line and not customer service, you will get through faster.
