Description of problem:
I live in the Portland, Oregon area. We have two area codes with no
geographical boundaries, hence we must dial an area code with all outgoing calls.
There is no check box in the ICW that will cause the dialer script to dial the
area code in addition to the 7 digit number, and I think there should be.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a new network connection using the Internet Configuration Wizard
2. Note on the phone number step there is a separate box for area code.
3. Enter an area code and phone number into the appropriate places.
4. Save the record.
5. Start the dialer and note that it does not dial the area code, and there was
never any option forcing it to do so.
Workaround: include the area code in the phone number field. Sort of ugly, but
it's a bug in wvdial. assigned it to right component
Is wvdial responsible for presenting the GUI to the user and writing the
configuration files? Because the problem could be solved at that level by
writing the appropriate information into the number to be dialed field of the
Perhaps there should also be a feature request for wvdial, because an ideal
solution would require changes to both the ICW and wvdial -- to support a new
boolean parameter indicating 10-digit dialing -- but I really don't think this
is just a wvdial bug.
WONTFIX, cause the GUI does not exist anymore
