Iphone adds 1 to phone numbers
Apple: why is iphone adding a ‘1’ to my phone numbers when
Numbers were always formatted for your area starting with Outlook 2013… but only if you entered 10 digits. If you enter a number that is 11 or higher, it will be entered as an unformatted number. Although dialers will dial all 11 digits, the phone network will connect you to the full number as soon as you reach it. The extra digit is not taken into account.
The numbers in this screenshot were typed in as a 10 digit number (Business), 11 digits (Home), +1 and 11 more digits with no spaces (Bus. Fax), and as 11 digits, then verified (Mobile).
Check the dialog properties if the country code is added as soon as you tab out of the number area. It’s possible that it’s set to change phone numbers with the country code automatically. See Dialing phone numbers for more information.
Touching the Check Phone Number buttons on a smartphone will add a + and a country code to the phone number. If you open the dialog, press Cancel instead of Ok to exit the page. Dialogue to Check Phone Number

What is Dial Assist and how does it work? Dial Assist for iPhone applies international and local prefixes to phone numbers automatically, so you don’t have to. This feature is intended to be useful, particularly when calling internationally, because without the correct prefix, the call will not go through.
