I have an interesting observation with my iPhone 4s and asking is the below normal.
I added a contact who has a U.S. cellular number. When I attempted to send them a message it wanted to send a text not an iMessage. So backed out, double check the contact and turns out the iPhone inserted plus 44 in front of the number. Yes I am in the UK. I then recalled that plus 1 is for the U.S. So I put this in front of the number and now all is well. I might know of a feature called dial assist is the culprit here. Am I right here and if so should I turn this off to remove this perhaps helpless assumption that all numbers I add are UK based when truly they're not? Any comments greatly appreciated. Thanks!
