International calling codes in Outlook 2010

The CEO of my company travels abroad extensively and only uses his blackberry when traveling. Is there a way we can set his contacts so that if he is in one country trying to dial another, it will automatically know what country code to select. For example, he is in The Netherlands and is trying to dial Hong Kong. I know it is +0 852 and the phone number, but if I set the contact phone number that way when he is in another country, he will have to change it. Help!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Just set all the numbers for his contacts to have the country code with a
+ before it, but leave off any access numbers, such as the 0. So for Hong
Kong store the number as +852 and then the rest of the number, for the
UK store as +44 and then the rest of the number. The network will know
that this is an international because of the +. This will then work in
whatever country you are in.

Hope this helps.

    Thank you so much for your insight.  I have changed his contact information to reflect the +and country code.  He will be traveling soon to The Netherlands and wants to test it from there, once he returns I will let you know my findings.  Fingers crossed!
