It is necessary for international calls. But, even more is necessary, the
country code is also necessary. So, as far as saving a 1 into each saved
phonebook entry, it is not worth it. Because, your 1.xxx.xxx.xxxx will not
work anyway for international calls. An international call will look more
like 001.xxx.xxx.xxxx. Therefore it will have to be dialed manually anyway
unless you also enter the country code and you know the place of origin
(different places or origin require a different number to be dialed).
Bottom line, it is not worth anything saving the 1 into the phone book. It
is not necessary for U.S. calls and it won't work by itself for
international calls either.
