Any time the network needs to add a '1' to complete a long distance call you will hear this warning. The call is long distance even though you don't pay extra for it. The computer system has no way of knowing that your plan includes unlimited long distance and so you hear a warning that you could be charged. Think of it this way: what would you rather have, a warning with no extra charges or extra charges with no warning?

Thanks Timo, I prefer some warning with NO extra surprises. LOL
