How do I edit contacts to remove +1 before number?

I recently imported my contacts from a Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini to a Samsung Galaxy S4. I live in Jamaica and it is a Verizon Wireless phone which was unlocked. However, I notice that when dialing directly from contacts +1 automatically goes before the number and then call cannot go through. How can I solve this problem?

You need to change your country preference from the North America to Jamaica, or another location. Your phone is attempting to call those numbers because it assumes your contacts and you are in North America. To correct this, change your locale to Jamaica, and if you're using Google, change it in Google as well.

Backing up new phone contacts to Google as default action?

Every time I add a new contact to my Galaxy S4 I have to manually choose to save it to my Google contacts rather than my device. I remember this being a default option on my S2 but can't find it on the new phone. Going to my accounts and syncing to Google does not update the new contacts that were inadvertently saved to device nor set the default. Any help?

How to change call contacts to be listed as last name first?

When I bought this phone, I had them transfer all my contacts from my previous phone. I had everything listed as last name first. But many of my contacts are now listed first name first. I have gone to the edit icon and changed the order of names, but that does not change my contact list.

My contact has a new cell number and old is no longer used, I'd like to delete it?

Hi, my friend moved to US and his Canadian number is no longer applicable. He has a US number now which I added to his profile on my phone. Cannot figure out how to delete the old number. Contact card shows both. If I click on old number it simply dials the number, no option to edit that number (or delete it). Cheers,
