10 digit dialing 123-456-7890 insted of 1-123-456-7890

10 Digit Dialing (aka. Dialing without having to have a one before) would be a nice feature.

Just a suggestion!

Thanks,
Robert

On my Ooma line which there is no landline I get 7,10 and 11 digit dialing. IE If I am in the 123 area code or dialing 123 area code (except for #3 in the latter if I am not in area code 123) I can dial
1. 1-123-456-7890
2. 123-456-7890
3. 456-7890
the call would be completed to the same recipient.

Some area codes allow you to make local calls via 7 or 10 digit dialing (we simply follow the national numbering plan rules). All area codes currently require 11-digit dialing to make a long distance call. We plan to add 10 digit dialing for local and long-distance calls, although this will increase the post-dial delay if you make 7 digit local calls.

As I stated I can dial long distance calls using just the area code (10 digit dialing) Dennis maybe others can't do 10 digit dialing but I have been able to do so.

You're right, my mistake. If your local dialing plan (which depends on your area code) allows 10 digit dialing, then you can dial local and long-distance calls with just 10 digits. Thanks for pointing that out.
