Well you should put the 1 in front if you are dialing long distance but if you have the plan then you won't be charged for the call. It's always better to save your contacts with the 10 digits but when dialing long distance, your smartphone will usually add it automatically for you.

If you have the Canada Wide Plan no worries about LD within Canada, but if you want to save time when dialing out, do 1 in front on the number to avoid hearing the recording about LD charges may apply... :)

All my contacts have the 1 then the area code and 7 digit # and it works fine and I have never got long distant charges.
